The Good:
– Car is a really fun, solid driver; engine pulls hard; chassis handles really well with tons of grip; brakes are strong and well matched to the upgraded drivetrain. Overall, a very thoughtful hot rod build with all the character of 2.7L RS MFI.  
– Almost all mechanical issues addressed since purchase
– Great components and significant money spent on original build with Rothsport and during my ownership ($25K in recent receipts)
– Engine is strong and compression good (195whp dyno’d May 2021)
– With the exception of the frunk light, everything on the car works.

The not so good:
– MFI is running a little rough in some areas of part throttle. Mechanic recommended MFI butterflies be rebuilt and the MFI retuned to resolve it.  
– Magnesium engine case leaks small amount of oil (common for these engines). My mechanic never felt it was enough to warrant addressing.
– Respray has some color mismatch on the rear trunk lid as the original was off the car for many years (ducktail trunk removed at sale).
– Paint overall is ok; driver quality.
– Window regulators are a little stiff but work fine

Will include all parts I have from the car including door cards, original Fuchs wheels and tires, misc. small bits. Selling because I’ve found I enjoy modern Porsches more and have to make room for another one incoming.  

I am happy to discuss the car at length with serious buyers but the above is a very fair representation. I have been active on Rennlist for over 15 years and have sold several cars there with a solid reputation.

Clear CA title in hand. Smog exempt. $75,000 OBO
