I drive the car most days too and from work only a couple miles both ways.
A/C has no charge, but its only 2 miles for me. Shifts, and stops, and runs.
I've only had the car 6 months. In which time, I chased down a heavily cracked vacuum line that had kept the car
from being driven. Once replaced, vacuum line from air box through firewall back under car over torsion leading to
brake booster(whew!), she was a joy to drive.
I wish the car could move with me, but its not meant to be.
It's the last of the narrow bodies. And as such has survived turbo tails and flares.
For all its faults, it's an honest car with loads of character.
Recent leak down test revealed number 4 cylinder to be at 52%, all others perfect.
The head studs were all torqued with no issues and valves adjusted accordingly.
Valve cover gaskets replaced and a set of new plugs installed.
I had the test done in the hopes of providing the new buyer with enough to make
an informed decision with regards to the all important heart of the car. With no
previous service record of a rebuild, the current mileage, and no chain tensioner upgrade,
here's the contradiction to all that has been written about this model year Porsche.
I don't think there's a panel on this car that does not have a dent.See pics.
The interior shows well for a car of this age. Seats are in great shape with deep bolster sides. Crack in the top of dash and floppy under dash a/c below glovebox. See pics.
Not much service history on the car. The exterior is self explanatory from the photos. The car was repainted years ago with an improper prep on a galvanized body and so it goes with the Texas heat that it is flaking, all over. Only 2 areas of rust through near the horseshoe at the front.
Car runs and drives.
I would plan on towing car to its destination. Shipping arrangements to be at the expense of the buyer.
Clear Texas title.
An out of state move forces sale, time is of the essence.
Cash payment in full and pickup of vehicle within 7 days of auctions end.
Sold as is.

In truth, all-but-undisguised prototypes for the upcoming Porsche Macan compact crossover have been spotted galavanting all around the globe for some time now, but even the least-camouflaged examples have been caught wearing eyepatches covering their headlights and taillights. A dark new teaser image from Porsche clues us in to why that is - the baby Cayenne is getting unique quad-LED peepers up front.

Porsche has been hinting at lighting innovations in its production cars through recent concept reveals, including the stunning Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo showcar from last year's Paris Motor Show. The wagonized Panamera also featured four-point LED arrays up front, as well is in the rear, so it seems likely that this lighting will become a Porsche design signature going forward.
Powerpoint slides leaked from a recent dealer meeting suggest the Macan S will arrive packing a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, while the Macan Turbo will boast a 3.6-liter force-fed unit, with both models receiving seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearboxes. Pricing is expected to range from $52,000 for the S model to $75,000 for the Turbo.

Discussion Topics for Autoblog Podcast Episode #344
"Because" might be a good response to our headline, but as a vintage (purists might call 'proper') Porsche 911 is hardly cheap, we suspect you'll need a better explanation than that. Enter Drive editor Mike Spinelli.
Spinelli sits down with Zac Moseley and Mick Prichinello from Classic Car Club Manhattan to first explain why the market for old, air-cooled 911s has gotten so hot over the past few years, and to discuss if it's a bubble that's about to burst. Following that, this video is really is just three guys sitting around talking about old Porsches for 35 minutes. Which, you know, we're pretty onboard with.
Scroll down and have a look at the latest episode of After/Drive, from Drive.
