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. Sold as is."

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.

2015 Porsche 911 GTS starts at $114,200*

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 07:58:00 EST

Purists often criticize Porsche for creating products like the Cayenne, Panamera and recently launched Macan, saying they dilute the true sports car spirit of the brand. It's an argument we've heard before, and one we counter with two points. First: No they don't. And second: These are Porsche's volume superstars, and the money they rake in allows the company to create dozens of versions of its well-liked sports cars. Want proof? Have a look at the gallery above, where you'll see four new versions of the 911, all with GTS badges on their rumps. This means Porsche now offers 19 versions of the 911. Nineteen.
Porsche offered a GTS version of the 911 in its previous generation, and this new one seeks to slot somewhere between the standard car and the hardcore GT3. It's available in coupe and cabriolet forms, with either rear- or all-wheel drive, starting at $114,200, *not including $995 for destination. The GTS Cabriolet comes in at $126,100, while models equipped with AWD will set you back $120,900 or $132,800 for the coupe or convertible, respectively.
All GTS models get the 430-horsepower version of the Carrera S' 3.8-liter flat-six with the Powerkit, which also includes the Sport Chrono package and the sport exhaust. If equipped with the PDK dual-clutch transmission, the 911 GTS will hit 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds (or four seconds flat, if you've got the Cabriolet) - one tenth of a second quicker than the normal Carrera S. The car's top speed varies, depending on trim or transmission, but Porsche says the car will hit anywhere from 187 to 190 mph, flat out.

Listen to the Porsche Macan's exhaust note ahead of its LA debut

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 14:58:00 EST

As if we need further proof that the Porsche Macan won't just be another small CUV, it'll be a small Porsche CUV, the German automaker has released a video of the vehicle's raucous exhaust note. In short, the Macan will sport a far racier soundtrack than most of its competitors.
The raspy sound coming from one of the Macan's two turbocharged V6 engines sounds great (the video isn't clear as to whether we're listening to the base 3.0-liter or the Turbo model's 3.6-liter engine), and it's accompanied by a nice crackle on overrun. It isn't like a 911 or other flat-six model, but it is more or less what we expect a Porsche to sound like. We'll have all the details on the newest member of the Porsche lineup when it debuts later this month at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Scroll down for an official press release from Porsche, as well as the video of the Macan, and be sure to turn your speakers up.

Porsche CEO hints at Macan GTS, expects brand sales growth to 200K+

Tue, 11 Feb 2014 11:30:00 EST

Porsche is expecting big things from its little Macan, with CEO Matthias Mueller announcing that not only is a sportier GTS model being considered, but that the CUV will almost certainly help push Porsche beyond its 200,000-unit-per-year sales goal three years earlier than expected.
"We're transferring the genes of the Porsche brand into a new market segment," Mueller said during a speech to kick off Macan production, according to Automotive News Europe. Macan demand should push the brand past 200,000 sales, Mueller said, confirming what we reported back in August. And if Porsche really has a hit on its hands, it is able to boost production of the sporty crossover beyond its initial capacity of 50,000 units, according to the brand's CEO.
Provided that the Macan is the success Porsche hopes it will be, Mueller hinted that the range could expand beyond the initial Macan S and Macan Turbo. "GTS versions have a tradition at Porsche," Mueller said. "We haven't made a final decision yet regarding the Macan, but I'm sure it makes a lot of sense."
