There are good and bad ways to sell a car. You can provide a wide array of pictures under different lighting and from different angles utilizing shots taken from a distance and detail shots close up. You can show all of the body panels, the full interior, and while not always useful a shot of the engine never hurts. The ad text could follow a similar tack: details on the model, history, and available documentation. There’s no need to go overboard, but you put yourself in the buyer’s position and provide the answers to the questions you’d expect to ask were you buying the car.
Or, you can take a seemingly random array of photos under poor lighting and provide only the barest details in the ad. This seller has chosen the latter course for the photos and a mix of the two for the ad text. So it definitely could be less informative, but from a picture perspective there’s a lot to be desired here. But we shall persevere because the point of this 911 is the exterior color and that we get to see: Mexico Blue.

Mexico Blue is a long time favorite of mine and one of the iconic early pastels Porsche introduced. Presumably here it is paint-to-sample and presumably original to the car, though neither situation is made entirely clear. The CoA is said to be available though so that issue should be easily clarified. Here it drapes the smooth lines of a 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe. It has a 6-speed manual transmission, ceramic composite brakes, and sport chrono. So you’re getting a great color on a 911 with some sporty options. All for under $43K. The ad may not be well put together, but this one is worth exploring.
The paint looks in pretty nice shape. It shows very brightly and there are no obvious dings, scratches, or other blemishes. That’s nice to see. In the interior, the passenger door looks to be in pretty good shape! Honestly, that’s pretty much all we know of the interior. As for history, we may have a better story there. It’s said to come with all of its service records and while we aren’t told much about its ownership history we can hope that can be pieced together. There are a few modifications so buyers will want to have that in mind. Of note, the IMS bearing has been updated so at least that potential issue has been dealt with.
I don’t think there’s a ton more we can say. Anyone interested is going to have to ask a lot of questions and have everything inspected, but the general makeup of the car seems solid. I can’t say I’d walk into this supremely confident, but it could be that everything is fine just not presented well. At the end of the day you’d be getting a lot of car for your money!
If you check the Seller’s ebay feedback, he/she refused to honor a winning bid on the car. Looks like they tried to gamble on a No Reserve auction and didn’t like the result. Way to be a dishonorable seller!
Oh, and the car is in Canada.
That is simply a terrible listing. Pics suck. Text is ambiguous. No clue if the car denominated in Km or Miles. Sheesh. It could be a great car. But I wouldn’t touch it, given the seller’s sloppy presentation and questionable ethics.
Anybody here know whether it’s possible to import this to the States? If so this could be my dream car – PTS Mexico Blue, rear-drive S model, stick, no sunroof, and the hard-to-find PCCB brakes. About as lightweight and visceral as you’re going to find in a late-model 911. Price seems low IMHO – although poor feedback, poor presentation, and being in Canada might justify that.
Something is fishy with the mileage in the autocheck

What’s with all the wear and tear on the two knobs and the climate control toggles ? Almost looks like water damage to me….
One of our Facebook comments also noted that the build sheet indicated Seal Gray rather than PTS Mexico Blue. Definitely a great looking car, but a lot of strange questions about it!
The radio knobs do wear very easily on early 997’s. The wear on this car has no correlation with water damage imho.
Definitely one of the highest mileage 997’s I’ve seen, though.
