Not a penny more than $4500. There are thousands of others for sale right now, And prices only drop during the winter months.

Hmmm.... good catch! I didn't actually look at the details tab. It makes me wonder if the other one (that seems to have sold already) was as well.

They were both the cheapest "s" I've seen locally. But ragtops tend to get very cheap around here this time of year, haha.

Do the research - You get what you pay for.
If they are that cheap (under $5k) for under 100k miles, better have a really knowledgeable mechanic in your back pocket to check it out - PPI

It been said many times, the most expensive Porsche is usually the cheapest to buy.
You don't have to buy the most expensive but you better know what you're getting into buying the cheapest.

I must see what this “disfigured gauge face” looks like. That is a hilarious choice of words.
