If you have any questions or would like to view the car in person please email me at: garnetgmmeikle@ukdirectors.net . 2002 Porsche 911 Targa (996 series) in Arctic Silver with black leather interior, 6-speed manual transmission. In great condition, always garage-kept, driven only in good weather. 75, 500 miles, detailed service and maintenance records and Carfax available, never any accidents, damage, leaks or other issues. Ready to drive and makes a great daily driver or weekend toy. Unlike most other 996-era Porsche 911's on the market, this one had its IMS bearing professionally replaced in 2014 to pre-empt risk of catastrophic engine failure that has afflicted some older 996's (plenty of information online about this risk and the benefits of IMS replacement -- highly recommended for peace of mind; already done = thousands of dollars saved). New clutch, flywheel and sparkplugs were also installed at the same time in 2014. New battery, wipers in 2015. Oil changed within last 1500 miles, new tires within last 2500 miles. Options include carbon fiber shift knob and handbrake lever, heated seats, radar detector, 6-CD changer, Bose sound system, 18" alloy wheels, leather interior/seats. Targa roof was redesigned in 2002 -- if unfamiliar, the entire top section functions as a large sunroof, and slides back underneath the rear window to allow driving with the roof open. See photos. Rear window opens up as a hatchback to allow easy access to storage behind/on top of rear seats. Car has always been garaged and hand-washed and is in great condition considering the age. Retains its original shine (original paint throughout), no rust or accidents/damage. Issues (not major issues in my opinion, but just in the interests of full disclosure): (1) There is some minor wear/curb rash on some of the wheels, and a couple of barely noticeable scratches/marks/surface damage on front and rear bumpers and passenger side door/body panel. See close-up photos. Note there is road grime visible in those close-ups, but that will wash off; sorry, there was rain earlier on the day I took those close-ups and I couldn't see the grime until I enlarged the high-res photos on my computer. Happy to send more photos, but you can see in the other shots from a different day what the body looks like without that grime. (2) The Pioneer sat-nav unit currently does not function (buttons no longer work). The navigation function itself has not worked since I bought the car in 2013 but until recently I was able to use it as a master unit to control the built-in stereo, CD changer and aux line-in audio. If the Pioneer unit is disconnected, those other audio units will still work independently (can be controlled through the built-in stereo); or, a new sat-nav unit can be installed instead. It'd be a relatively minor job to unplug or replace the sat-nav and clean up/repair the wheels and/or body if desired but I've left as is so the buyer can choose based on preference. Car comes with original manuals, key fobs, service/maintenance records, spare tire and toolkit. Clean Carfax available. This car is in great shape and has been very reliable, no headaches, lots of fun to drive. Sad to let it go but becoming incompatible with my lifestyle/living situation. With the work put into it, it should be ready for years of hassle-free driving.
