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.

J.D. Power has just revealed the results of its 2013 APEAL Study, which looks at which brands have the most appealing cars based on sales figures, dealer inventory, brand loyalty, transaction and trade-in prices. The study was revamped for 2013, and places a larger focus on the new tech and infotainment options available to customers. All told, study participants gauged their vehicles on 77 different attributes, delivering a score out of a 1,000 points.

The Volkswagen Group had the greatest success of any corporation, topping the APEAL rankings with the Audi Allroad, Porsche Boxster, Porsche Cayenne, VW GTI and Passat. Chevrolet had the highest number of awards for a single brand, though, with the Avalanche, Sonic and Volt all taking home a prize.
The best brand overall was Porsche, which scored 884 out of a possible 1,000 points. The top Japanese brand was Lexus with a score of 847, while the top American brand was Cadillac, at 841. The best mainstream brand was Ram, which received a very respectable 817. The industry average for this year's study was 795, with 16 brands, all of which were mainstream, falling below the average.
Porsche has just debuted its two latest decapitated rocket sleds today at the LA Auto Show, the new 911 Turbo Cabriolet and Turbo S Cabriolet, which share their coupe counterparts' 520-horsepower and 560-hp 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engines. That kind of power ought separate a lot of hats (and toupees!) from heads.

The rear-engined Porsches put their power down through all four wheels, which allows them to launch from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds or less (the Turbo S Cab takes just 3.1 seconds), and both of them top out at 195 mph.
The 911 Turbo Cabriolet starts at $160,700, while the Turbo S Cabriolet can be had for a grand total of $193,900 (plus $950 for destination). Is the S model's 40 extra horsepower worth $33,200? We're not so sure, but we imagine Porsche won't have any trouble selling it.
We don't much like Mark Webber right now. Part of being a racing driver is dealing with promotional stuff. It's not hard to find a driver that can't stand all this nonsense, whether it be promoting a product, meeting investors or attending some obscure event. Even a driver of Webber's caliber - a former Formula One driver for Red Bull Racing and a member of Porsche's factory Le Mans team - has to serve his time at the promo events.
Somehow, though, we don't think the Aussie driver minds this particular promo detail. In the video below, Webber attends the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. He then takes tennis superstar Maria Sharapova out for a spin behind the wheel of the Porsche 918 Spyder. The level of jealousy at the Autoblog office is palpable.
Take a look below for the video. And as we're super jealous of Mr. Webber, hop into Comments and caption the above photo based on what you think he's saying to Maria. Bonus points if you can work "vegemite" into the caption.
