Thanks for the warm welcome @blueline & @Tom! Once deciding on a Porsche last year the journey got interesting. I went from 944, 968, Boxter, Cayman, 996, 997, Turbo or NA, but none of them a 40 Jahre. I too had seen the name here and there but never looked into it until one showed up on eBay. Not the one I bought but it got me started. I found mine on the 40 Jahre 911 registry and have since been in contact with the moderator.

The car is a 75k, essentially one owner, well kept example. The guy I bought it from had it for a year and didn't drive it much.

Hi Jake. Welcome to Carpokes! Enjoy those miles you're putting on your triple sharp Carerra! The interior also looks great from what I can see - post some pics if desired. As I'm always saying, Carpokes is a very picture-friendly form!
A few more snaps ... interior is Iceland Green/Black. Lightens up the interior and pairs well with the aventurine exterior.

The interior is gorgeous, as is the exterior - the whole car is gawgus! (Deep South version of gorgeous. It works.)

Thanks for posting the pics!

Welcome, I love the Iceland green interior, and would have seriously considered it were it available in the 718, but alas, its only reserved for the hoi poloi 911 crowd. :angel: Very cool looking car.

Welcome aboard Mfibiandriver!! Gorgeous car. Absolutely love the interior but as a member of the low-pollio 911 crowd, I'm sure I'd get them all dirty in no time. True story, when my wife and I changed the carpet in our former house, we intentionally picked a color that best matched the color of spilt coffee, paw prints, and general wear. We figured if you can't beat 'em..... For the same reason, I'm afraid to get a car with anything but a black or brown interior, despite my jealousy when seeing an interior like this. :shifty:
