Solid And Fun. — I bought this car on a whim. I was looking for a 2005-2007 911 and saw this and bought it the same day. It was close by and has the color combinations I like as well as specs. It has a 1988 3.2 engine and was repainted the original color. It has some work that needs to be done, but checked out very well with a local Porsche shop. Most of the items are wants and not needs.
