SEE BELOW ON MY BUMP POST - Price has changed. Still selling...

I can not believe i am writing this. I have owned this car for just a few months. GT Silver, Black leather, Platinum satin wheels, Apple car play, etc - as brand new condition with remainder of factory warranty. Bought from Houston Porsche. Had 150 miles and had been titled so technically I am second owner. This car really is something else. GTS model. Just over $90,000 sticker. I have a loan on car so once loan is paid - title will come. Bank of America is who holds loan. Wire transfer only.

So the good - EVERYTHING - car is perfect - as new condition. Added Coco Mats as shown in some of my other posts.

The Bad - Zero - nada - nothing. Not one mark on the car or wheels. Hasn't even been run in yet as it only has 1100 miles on it.

The why - I promised my 13 year old that we would be doing a project together this year if he could get his act together in school, life, etc. And damnit if the little dude has done what I asked. His name is Jake and was named after the actor in 16 candles who drove a red 944. We are going to buy a 944 turbo and completely gut and restore to perfection...together. It is his dream after we owned one several years ago and he has now earned it. I will complete my end of the bargain but can't do this while owning the GTS. I need the money back out of it to buy and restore. I have always wanted to do this with my family. I never had that growing up (parents werent into cars!)

The cost - asking $70,000

Serious buyers only. This has to be one of the prettiest cars on the road. Let me know if there are any questions.

You can reach me vial email at a356rep at yahoo.com

Nice one Luke, you can’t buy that time with your son back again later and those memories are gold.

I agree. We had a huge picture printed out in color of a 944 turbo a year ago and hung it in his bedroom to drive himself toward a goal. He is way to young to drive obviously and this gives us plenty of time to do it right. I am excited for us...

Very sweet story. Funny enough I have a pristine AP1 s2000 that I’m saving for my 6 year old son. Reminds me of this. Best of luck with the sale and the project.

check out some of the other porsche forums, especially the ones that cater to the older vehicles. you can usually pick up an ex racecar/DE car pretty cheap with a lot of good mods done already and people are always taking the interiors out and essentially giving them away.

Great Car! Very close to what's in my garage. I have same color car and wheels. You have some nice options I'm missing on mine. These are just amazing cars. Worth the money. Good luck with your sale.

Bump - I am still selling this car. More realistic pricing as it is now two years old. I would like to get $70K. I am still with a loan through US Bank. 3,300 miles. In new condition...soul performance exhaust added...

Car is sold to a super nice guy out of Florida. He picked it up yesterday. He sold a 981 Cayman base to get into my gts. Sad day. I had never heard the soul exhaust from the outside of the car as no one in my family can drive a manual...so when he pulled off...I about jumped out of my skin. Anyway. I scratched the 718 Cayman itch. On to the next...I wish you all the best.

Sorry to hear you sold your GTS but seems it went to a good home. Good luck with the project car!
