Seller Description

Well, this is rather unexpected for many; myself included. I'm entertaining the idea of selling my M Coupe (see post #19).

2001 titanium silver | dark grey + black S54 M Coupe. 96k miles, clean CA car and title, no accidents/paintwork/stories, full documentation (original booklets and records included) from little to big ticket items, including but not limited to -

Inspection I, II, and I, with valve adjustments (as recent as 92k), all VANOS hubs and tabs in perfect shape, new WPC treated OEM rod bearings (zero miles since completed), belts and pulleys @ 88k, new windshield and battery @ 92k, new clutch, shift pin service, ignition coils, and spark plugs @ 93k, preventative thermostat and coolant flush @ 95k, transmission, diff, brake fluid changed @ 95k, OE alternator and starter @ 96k, 10W60 oil change every 5k, subframe is 100% intact - it's checked regularly. see below for further maintenance / modification items completed.

Never tracked, launched, or abused. Minor minor rock chips on the front bumper, hood, and side skirts. Tiny spider-web crack on center console above shift boot. Otherwise, no imperfections in the paint or leather. Always garaged, washed weekly, detailed seasonally.

As you can tell, this Coupe has been meticulously maintained both aesthetically and mechanically. You will be very hard pressed to find an M Coupe for sale (nonetheless an S54 in this market) in this condition. The paint has maintained incredible depth and the mechanics have been top priority throughout the years, and it sure shows.

Consider yourself lucky to have this chance and foolish to pass it up. I know and will happily admit my pricing is probably optimistic, but allow me to reiterate that this sale does NOT need to happen.
To the right buyer who appreciates these great modifications, acknowledges the maintenance completed, and recognizes the Coupe market, this could be a good deal for someone. I secretly (maybe not secretly) do not want to sell it, I just figured I have to at minimum give myself the chance to further consider what's on the horizon for me.
NO I WILL NOT PART OUT. Trades? Sure. A 997.2 or 991 GT3 would suffice.

I usually welcome criticism, because this is a public forum after all, but I do not need any lectures or negativity in my for sale thread. Thanks for understanding & viewing!

PM me with contact information or do not expect a response.

The widebody Porsche 914 the seller had his eye on sold. The coupe is off the market.

It's about as clean of 90k miles coupe as you'll come across. All the recent maintenance and especially the rod bearings are a huge plus. The modificiations are also good ones and not cheap. He needs some updated photos because it looks even better now. I hope he changes his mind after all the work he's done. It would be hard to replicate for the price.
