Wow that's impressive. Wouldn't touch it for $18k but props to that owner.

Insane mileage which is awesome. Unless there is 40 foot cargo container of receipts, keep moving. At that price, not even viable as a parts car.

Haha. Not mine. The original owner traded in a 928 with 370k miles on it for this car new. He was a traveling sales person from Iowa and drove the car all over the fcuking place. He drove it to Alaska and the lower 48. It was serviced meticulously at Porsche of Minneapolis. If it wasn't a tiptronic, I would have bought it yesterday. The owners phone must have been ringing off the hook. He likely got more than the $18k asking price.

Bravo. I honestly didn't believe any 996 or newer Porsche could make it past 100k.

Mezger engine, other 996 variants had lots of problems.

At 590K miles it may be an entirely re-built car.

I wonder how much of it is original.
