I am the third owner and purchased the car in 2002 with approximately 115k miles.
It was a California car until 2011 when I relocated to Atlanta, GA.
During my 15 years of ownership, it has has always been garaged.
I have extensive records dating back to the purchase.
While under my ownership, it was serviced at Heyer Performance (Mt. View, CA) and at Goldcrest Motorsports (Kennesaw, GA).
Both are outstanding shops, and I have followed a religious 3k oil change schedule; as well as, full tune up and valve adjustments every 10k miles.
The car was my daily driver from 2002 - 2008 (in rotation with a 914 and M-Coupe), and following the birth of my first child in 2009 - it has been more of a twice per month pleasure car.
Mechanicals: Runs excellent - last tune-up & valve adjustment ~2k miles ago
~10k miles on a fresh rebuilt transmission from Tony Heyer @ Heyer Performance (Mt.View, CA).
The transmission is from a pre-SC mid-70's model - which means shorter ratios.
This makes it quicker and noticeably more responsive in town, but probably not optimum for high speed records.
Includes Quaife LSD - here is a link to one that was for sale on Pelican.
New Bridgestone Potenza tires
Inoperative items:AC blower intermittently works (dash defrost, vent, heat, etc. work fine)
Radio head unit needs replacement
Headlight and windshield washers (motor is disconnected)
Body work:
In 2016, an overzealous soccer mom in an SUV decided to expedite her right turn into traffic without noticing my tiny 911 was innocently in front her.
The attached picture shows the damage.
Luckily, she only clipped the driver's tail light and damaged the quarter panel...
missing the rear deck & engine.
Car was repaired at Magnum Collision, which is the premier shop in ATL for high end collectibles (Porsches, Astons, Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc.).
The entire driver's side and rear deck were repainted (Targa bar removed and glass out).
I also took the opportunity to professionally repaint the wheels.
