Hi Looking to get into another Porsche.


I am looking to purchase a 2002-2005 Porsche 996 turbo coupe ( I like having a glovebox, sorry 2001). Ideally yellow but I would consider grey, red, black. Black interior only. Light mods or stock. Ideally less than 60k miles but clean, well maintained higher milage I am open to.


I am located in Missouri but am willing to travel for the right car.


Thanks

Great color choice. Take your time. It took me a number on months to find the “right” car.

Thanks, I've been passively searching for a while but now I'm on the hunt. Porsches yellow just looks great.

Any experience comparing your x50 to a non-x50? Do you daily it? Always like to hear how ownership is with a car I'm looking for but never owned before.

Not a daily driver, but I do have 75K miles on it. Have gone on a number of long trips. Itís been a great car. I think the X-50 gives you a bit more low end grunt. I added an EPL tune shortly after purchasing the car. Make sure you are very clear on the options you want on the car. Everything is an option. Donít settle for something you donít want.

Have you checked Autotrader. Looks like there are a few there.

shogun86 is on a distinguished road
I have a silver 2003 6 speed coupe that i'm considering selling. Bad thing is that the car has 100k miles and it doesn't have black interior. Here is a link to the for sale ad by the previous owner:

Please PM me if you have any questions. Thanks.

Ever consider having the car professionally wrapped in Speed Yellow? Iíve been thinking about doing that just to mix it up for a little bit.

I've been checking most car pages, BAT, etc every/ every other day. How was the tune compared to pre-tune? Any reliability issues?
Thanks!

@bedhes Details on the car? PM me if you'd like.

@jakkub Nice idea. I have not, if I can't find a yellow I'll get a grey and wrap it yellow or some crazy color.

Overall, no reliability issues. Normal maintenance and a few odds and ends. At 60K miles I had the car gone through top to bottom, including welding the coolant pipes. The engine in the turbo is bullet proof.
