F/S 1988 944 Mild Autocrosser

I bought this car Nov. 2007 from a member on here and have really enjoyed driving it, but am wanting something else. The car is an 88 Celebration Edition in Zermatt Silver. It was built to be an autocross/DE car, but was autocrossed very little. It was daily driven for a year or so, so it is not strictly an autocross car by any means. It is quite a bit faster than a stock 944, being that it is an 88 and it has been modified. You really need to drive it to experience what I am talking about. I have autocrossed it once since I bought it and enjoyed the experience. The car is not getting driven much, maybe once a week right now. It has been converted from an automatic to a manual by the previous owner, as well as a list of modifications. The timing belt was changed the weekend after I bought the car, so it has about 12,000 miles on it. In the pictures, the folding back for the back seat is not in the car, but I have it and am happy to put it back in the car for the buyer. I put a new clutch in the car around a year ago, so the clutch has maybe 3000 miles on it, and that is a high estimate, the car really doesn't get driven much at all.

Here are the modifications:
Koni sports on all 4 Corners
Turbo S front control arms
Turbo S front sway
968 M030 adjustable rear sway
250 lb Weltmeister autocross springs
Turbo torsion bars
951 head
Super Chips chip
Jacob's ignition
Throttle response cam
Flow Master muffler
After market exhaust tip
After market sport seats and Bride steering wheel
Weltmeister harness bar with Driver's side harness
K/N air filter
968 caster blocks
16" Boxster rims painted black
951 rear valance
Turbo radiator
968 antenna
Also, some other smaller things have been done that I can't remember


The Bad: The paint is peeling on the tops of the fenders. There is a small amount of oil leaking from the front seals. Not much, but I just want whoever to be aware. The shift boot is starting on the downhill slope. By that, I mean the leather on the top of the shifter is starting to come off. AC has been converted to R134, but I have never charged it but the compressor comes on fine. The tachometer doesn't go above 4200 RPMs even though the engine revs freely above that. Also, it leaks a little bit of water when it rains. There are never puddles or anything like that, but when it rains the passenger side floor carpet is wet. I think it is just a plugged drain line or something like that.

Interior picture is from when I bought the car, but looks the same. The ones in the webshots album are all a year or so old, but the car looks the same with the exception of the steering wheel, which has been changed to one with a blue top (I don't really know why, it was my dad's decision). Also, the harness bar and harness has been removed, but I still have it and it can go with the car if you would like it.
More pictures at 944 For Sale pictures from rides photos on webshots
Car is in Apison, TN which is 10 min from Chattanooga
As far as price goes, I'd like to get $4000 OBO. I would really like to trade for a 914 or even a motorcycle depending on the bike.

Just put a new alternator on this rig over the weekend and it's running strong.

Just had timing belt, balance shaft belt, and front seals done. Running like a top.
