In all likelihood, the dealer paid low $13K's to a bit over $14K for it.

I didn't do anything. 11 track hours later, the engine failed.

I have the Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2 on my 911 Targa. Same use - daily street with an occasional canyon run. I like them much better than my previous Michelin A/S 3+.
