I have an offer in on this car @ $46,500. Waiting to hear back from the dealer on whether they accept. Honestly, these 2009-2011 Carrera S/4S cars are mostly at asking prices for well over $50k and they are difficult to find. There are tons of 996s and 997 first gen (2005-2008) but the 997 2nd gen (2009-2012) is slim pickings. The new engine in the 2009 has been far more reliable than the 1999-2008 engine and the only major issues with the car seem to be PDK transmission failures. I'm only looking MT so that's not an issue. Seems like it will be a model that will hold its value well...not that I'm buying it for that reason. It's just a little perk.
I'm definitely not a flashy car guy, I'd prefer black/blue/dark gray but the red does look nice and the red/yellow/etc. does seem to resell well.
Wow. Didn't know they were getting that much power out of the carrera s! If the engine is reliable like you say, then that is damn impressive. Guess that is their first direct injection engine.
