    Hi Erich,

    Sorry, just seeing this note now.

    I still own the car; it's been at MCC on consignment. Yes, former owner was in NY, as was the one before him.

    I would be glad to share all the details so let me know when you're available to speak. Feel free to call, send a txt msg, or give me a number and I'll call you later today.

    Looking forward.

    Hi there-
    I believe you bought this car off of BAT?
    https://www.motorcarclassics.com/199...a-4s-c-251.htm

    From the previous owner in NY as well? Did you trade it in to this dealership? It looks like you didnt own it for that that long - just curious why? I'm looking for a driver 993, prefer a C2S but this C4S is growing on me.

    Care to share any details?

    Thanks!
    Erich

    I saw your message regarding the 991 C4S. Do you have an ad I can look at? Czechraize at yahoo

    . I didn't say anything until today when i saw his request for help on the price and offered what I thought was an informed opinion backed by quite a bit of research. His response indicated he was offended, but, hey.... it is what it is and he did ASK.

    One last thing...if you haven't seen this 993 YouTube, check it out:

    I'm keeping an eye out for other local cars to try. Maybe the Targa had some issues. If it turns out they're all like that, ...well, it wouldn't be a bad obsession to be done with - they aren't cheap and seems like people dump a LOT into maintenance - something I'm not used to.

    BTW, as far as that formula I use goes- I think it applies to the C2S as well.

    A little background on the Ocean Blue C4s..... I first saw it on EBAY and Car Gurus maybe 6 -8 months ago. Back then he was asking $114K - another example of the huge price spreads I was seeing. Anyway, I emailed him to tell him how far out of whack he was. Price came down a few times in the ensuing months, but he was still in a dream world. No bids at all on EBAY, but he insisted it was because people don't buy these kind of cars on EBAY (really??). I suggested he try Rennlist, which he did but he was still stuck in the 90's....(cont'd).

    Hi Doug-

    Thanks.

    Funny you should mention the way they drive. I started looking at 993 s because...well, they just look so freaking awesome! I didn't drive one until about 3 weeks ago when got to drive a private-sale 97 Targa about 25 miles from me . Wasn't looking for Targas necessarily - just wanted to actually DRIVE one after LOOKING at them for so long. I was underwhelmed. Everyone says what a dream they are to drive, how great they sound, etc., but my '13 Boxster blows it away on both counts (I have the Porsche Sport Exhaust). It was mainly the clutch and gearbox that disappointed, but the squeaks and rattles didn't help and the handling was nothing special. If i got one, it would be to DRIVE so the driving experience (especially the sound!) has to be there......(cont'd)
