Good news, the IMS bearing is fixed!

Sounds like the airbags in this 1974 are also in great shape.

Thanks for the reminder. I'll check the airbags in the SC.

Opp's I've just remembered, power steering fluid, and check the wiring to the launch button.

Gee, could it just possibly be a scam ad?

"Pristine and good running order" That doesn't sound right for a 1974 . Yup, could easily be a scam ad.

Don’t worry, it also has anti-lock brakes.

Some joker regularly post scam ads in our local craigslist using Porsche as bait. Last week there was a pristine 993....for $16,000.

Does the traction control still work? Lane assist and the backup cameras are hard find.

The real question is does it have the optional 16# radiator cap or is it using the old 12# cap?

Its a full sized convertible targa. One of Porsche's rarest models.

Not interested - No lane control technology nor automated backup assistance feature!

For just a little more you could have a 993! They don't even have IMS!
