These 996's have finally passed the point for us where they're more than meh. We haven't taken our own advice and bought one while the market for these unloved 911's is at what must be rock bottom, but we know we'll be kicking ourselves in the future once prices creep back up. This one must be more than just a little tired for $11,350 but we'd be lying if we told you we weren't tempted.
This car presents extremely well after a full polish and thorough interior detailing. Well shot photos of a black Porsche in the California sun are almost like cheating. Close up shots though reveal 150,000 miles worth of bumps bruises and worn paint.
The interior shows similar wear but the seller says that it is a non-smoking car with "no weird smells" so we can deal with some worn bolsters.
The seller provides a nearly 20 minute long video that goes over the car inside and out and includes a brief test drive showing smooth operation and no weird noises (that we can hear).
Things look dry and clean underneath the car and a questionable aftermarket intake is the only thing that jumps out at us in the engine bay.
High mileage and no records are a scary prospect and we can't help but feel that something sinister must be lurking for a buy it now price of $11,350 but if we were local to Costa Mesa we'd be showing up for a test drive with 10k cash in our pockets.
Someone roll the dice on this bargain 911 on eBay and let us know how it goes.
