Delusional might be a better description.

I'm guessing they just tossed it up on the web site so they could come back and add pix and adjust the price and add written features. At least that's my logical thought.

Someone should call them and offer $13k for the car sight unseen saying that's all it's worth and find out what they say...

I was sure it was going to say $3K miles.

more miles than dollars asked....

This sounds like a fat finger error.

Don't forget "Stereo w/Anti-Theft Coding"!!! makes it special LMAO

Considering that car was only 50-55K new back in 2002... 32K is crazy!

Here's the spec sheet, according to this URL (works for some but not others; my 2000 S isn't in the database)

Optimism

Guys, are we not our own worst enemy? Yes, these cars have issues but what car doesn't. Yes, there are a lot of them out there so I get the supply and demand argument. However, there is no denying they deliver a lot of fun and are a real kick in the pants to drive. My point is...why should we as owners of these great little cars not demand a more reasonable price? Why continue to support the whole over blown ims issue which only fills the pockets of those folks that have exploited it from the beginning.

I guess I just hate to see this great little car that has so much going for it continue to be maligned. It's partly our responsibility to start changing things don't you think?

You can't argue with the market.

There are toooooo many water-cooled Porsches for sale and too few buyers willing to risk money on an out-of-warranty German luxury car that requires overpriced parts and specialized labor, for a novice at least which is most buyers.

The affliction of my Porsche is worth 30% more than the market says is systemic.
It gets worse every time you have to replace the clutch, water pump or shocks. There is no medication currently available for this.

So could I trade them my 03 S with 62,000 miles and have them pay me some cash plus give me their 02 Base with 43,000 miles?

Prestige BMW in NJ was trying to sell a 2003 or 4 BMW M3 with no miles for a mid $60K price a year ago, don't know if they ever succeeded him n getting that price.

This might look pretty good on the same lot as a $70-90k 718 with a 4-cylinder engine and no spare tire.

That's it. I have a doc that has a lease on a 991. He is not happy with the car but can't sell, swap or trade it without taking a huge hit. There are so many water cooled Porsche out there. Hummmmmm .. I should check out the 997.2s again.

I think the ad meant that it's 1 out of 1953 produced. Not #1.

Maybe they have this one priced so high so the other cars on their lot look like a bargain.
