My Ride: BMW's
FS: 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe in ocean blue metallic

Hey all, new to the forum, and possibly looking at an E46 3-series to replace my VW Jetta TDI daily driver, but first I need to sell my 911. Here's the info:

1999 911 Carrera Coupe
6-speed manual
40,700 miles
Ocean blue metallic exterior
Full black leather interior
Sunroof, PW, PD, PS, all that stuff
Slight tint - not sure what percentage

The car is in great condition, with a few very minor exceptions. There is some wear on the driver seat leather from getting in and out of the car. The center glove box still works, but it's a bit loose. The floor mats are missing. As for the exterior, there are a couple of 1mm rock chips on the front bumper, and the driver-side rear quarter panel has a couple of minor dings on it, not visible from more than a few feet away. There is one 2mm rock chip in the windshield. Finally, there is a 2-inch scuff on the edge of the passenger-side rear rim. I know this sounds like a lot, but I'm being pretty picky.

Other than those issues, the car is amazing. If you're familiar with 996's, you know that this '99 has no traction control - it's just you, the brakes and gas pedal, and a rear-engine, RWD car that is ready to be driven like a true sports car without a bunch of computers doing it for you. As you can imagine, it's a blast to drive. The color is somewhat rare - you see ocean blue 911's from time to time, but the ocean blue metallic is pretty hard to find. It looks fantastic on the black interior. It is completely stock, with the exception of clear side markers I installed to get rid of the ugly orange ones. It has not been smoked in. I'm the second owner - I bought it in Pittsburgh from a dealer who got it from a doctor as a trade-in.

The car isn't due for another oil change until 45,000 miles, but you'll probably want to get one done anyway, since it's been since April. I just installed brand-new rims (high-quality Mille Miglia Cup 3's) and tires (Potenza RE750's) at around 35,000 miles, so you're totally set on tires. It's been inspected several times for the dreaded RMS problem, but it's not even leaking a drop. The car got a new clutch at around 30K miles right before I bought it, so it's nice and stiff. I own the car, so I have the title in hand. I also have all the manuals.

Finally, the price. Because of the low mileage and the rare color, I want to get around $33,500 for the car. No, it's not the cheapest 911 on the internet, but I think you get what you pay for. This would be the PERFECT entry-level Porsche for someone who's always been interested in having one. I'm only selling the car because I want to start preparing for a 996 Turbo.

Here are some pics. I have plenty more if you're interested. Please e-mail me at jessenewton@gmail.com with any questions.

Flat 6 design, 3.4L, 300hp I believe. I think it does 0-60 in about 4.8 to 5 seconds. Porsche says 5.1 or something, but they are notoriously conservative. The rear-engine and RWD setup allows it to use its power VERY efficiently. It has massive amounts of grip because of the weight of the engine on top of the rear wheels. It's almost impossible to get any tire spin because of all the grip it has. The acceleration is pretty violent - you get a WONDERFUL exhaust note out of the engine under full acceleration in 1st and 2nd gear. It really is the "Stuttgart Symphony."

However, the steering, handling, and feel of the car will blow you away more than the acceleration. Unless you do something really stupid, you simply cannot make this car feel out-of-control. It really is an amazing machine to drive. It perfectly conveys the feel of the road to the driver.

I tried to e-mail you, but I got blocked by some kind of spam filter. Do you have another address? You can e-mail at jessenewton@gmail.com if you want.
