    Pristine, original 2008 Cobalt blue metallic Porsche 911 Turbo, six-speed manual transmission with 9,500 miles. VIN No. WPOAD29998S783955.

    I am the third owner and have put about 4,500 miles on the car. All services performed by Porsche dealerships according to schedule and as-needed. No expense spared. Car is flawless and very original. The only modifications (all reversible) are window tinting, clear bra, Weathertech floor liners (perfect original mats stored in sealed bags), and a updated bluetooth stereo head unit with back-up camera (original unit preserved).

    During my ownership, I have stored the car in a climate-controlled garage and have never driven in the rain. The car is professionally detailed every three months and meticulously maintained. No food, dogs, smoking or track-driving. The tires were replaced with new Bridgestones by the dealership when I purchased the car in 2017 and have approx. 4,500 miles. I had the rear spoiler lifts replaced under warranty in April 2018.

    The original window sticker is included in the photographs but options with original pricing are as follows:
    • Brown natural leather full ($1,510)
    • Locking differential ($950)
    • Multifunction steering wheel ($250)
    • Sport chrono package ($1,920)
    • Floor mats in interior color ($140)
    • Painted spoiler lip ($585)
    • Painted lower part of rear apron ($585)
    • "Turbo" logo-embossed center storage lid ($295)
    • Lighted door sills ($725)
    • Painted rocker panels ($750)
    • Factory short-throw sport shifter ($765)
    • Porsche logo-embossed crest in headrests ($270)
    The car will come with a transferable Fidelity Platinum warranty, which is Fidelity's most expensive and comprehensive warranty offered. Four years remaining on an 84-month warranty (original cost $6k).

    I have all the original books, manuals, service records, tools, Porsche trickle charger, etc.

    Price is $95k FIRM

    Happy to answer any questions and welcome inspections at my home in north county San Diego.

    I also have a 2013 dark blue metallic Porsche Cayenne Turbo with appox. 30k miles that is in similarly well-optioned and in nearly perfect condition (it's my daily-driver so there are some small flaws like curb rash and a ding in the lower sill). I will sell both for $135k.

    Do you have a shot or two that’s a bit further away? Hard to see the full color of the car.

    Thanks Nate. It was a tough decision and I nearly gave up due to all the ridiculous “offers” and mishigas from time-wasters, flakes and dreamers.

    The buyer was an absolute mensch - a true enthusiast who drove from Palm Springs to SD on NYE and immediately wired full asking price after seeing the car. I am so glad it ended up in the right hands.

    Lessons learned:

    BAT is only for those willing to assume risk of a low sale price. They insist on a low reserve that is well below their own data let alone market.

    The Porsche owners forums, like here, are a mixed bag. There are serious buyers but also out a lot of dreamers, dealers, and flakes who email offers of 60% or say “what’s the lowest amount you will take?”

    I did not even bother with Craigslist or FleaBay.

    Congrats on your well deserved sale. What venue / forum did buyer use?

    Totally agree about most forum responses. Same occurred with me recently. Even had some say, if was red exterior, I would be “all over it”.
    Why even respond. I now have more respect for many pre-owner dealer sales employees. It’s really a two way street.
