Seller's Notes

2004 911 40th-Anniversary Edition 911 •• •• More than a re-badged Carrera, these are very special 911s--not quite a GT3 but close. Limited to only 1963 units (the year the 911 was first released), each "40 Jahre" car has a plaque with its edition number in the production (approx 800 cars shipped to North America). All 40AE's have the X51 power package (engine upgraded to 345hp--a $17k option on regular 996s), factory Limited Slip Differential (available only on the 40AE and on some 1999 models with the smaller 3.4L engine), club sport suspension (M030 suspension lowered 10mm), GT Silver paint (the only other '04 model with that color option was the $440k Carrera GT), custom wheels, model-specific Natural Grey Full Leather interior with Alcantara headliner. •• •• In my opinion, this is not a car that you get in and drive; this is a 911 that you strap into and wear like a tailored suit to a triathlon. No other factory 996 under $40k feels as exhilarating as the 911 40th-Anniversary Edition. •• •• Unfortunately, in August I suffered a series of heart problems and need to sell my much-loved 911. No. 444 (of the limited edition of 1963 cars) is no garage queen! It has been my daily driver for 1.5 years (with winter wheels and snow tires) and I have enjoyed every minute of ownership and driving. I used the car to carry my mountain bikes (and skis) throughout that time. All the details of the options, maintenance, and condition are outlined below. The factory roof bars (designed to not touch the roof directly), winter wheels (need to replace rear tires) and factory floor mats and winter mats come with the sale. •• •• Modifications: All original equipment (no mods) except for Rennline engine mounts (yellow bushings) installed 1.5 years ago. Records: I purchased from a dealer in PA so my only records are the carfax and my own DIY receipts. •• •• Mechanical/Maintenance: Mobil 1 oil changes every 5k miles. Yearly oil analysis--all clean (can send paperwork). Replaced the coils, plugs, oil sending unit, right window regulator, battery and rear tires. Added factory roof bars with new hardware and locks. Refinished headlight lens. •• •• Note about IMS bearing and rear main seal: since I have no prior maintenance records, I can not confirm that the factory IMS bearing has been replaced but knowing the mileage and noting that the clutch engages at the top of the pedal travel, it is assumed by my shop that the IMS was replaced when the clutch was replaced. The IMS failure is such a well-known fix, it is extremely unlikely any mechanic would replace the clutch without changing the IMS and rear main seal. His position was reinforced by the oil report (see photo) that shows no metal particles. •• •• Exterior Cosmetic/Condition: Overall all very good. Exterior showing the "patina" that comes with 14 years and 127k smiles. The photos illustrate the following: road rash on the front end; paint scraps (see photos, 12 o'clock over driver rear wheel; driver side, lower rear bumper cover; rear cover bumperette; hood, 1 o'clock from passenger headlight), slight no-paint damage door dings (see photos, 11 o'clock over driver rear wheel). The front bumper cover has a slight crease from a parking lot nudge (driver side of plate mounting holes). I have a replacement front plate mount and hardware. •• •• Interior Cosmetic/Condition: Overall all excellent. All instruments, switches, etc work perfectly. The carpet under the drivers left foot is discolored. The leather doors and dash are perfect. The Alcantara headliner is beginning to droop slightly at the rear window (can be snugged up with the window trim). All seats have zero rips or tears. The drivers left bolster shows some wear but are in excellent shape. •• •• Options/Features: • X51 power package • M030 sport suspension • 4-Wheel Disc Brakes • ABS • Aluminum Wheels • Max Performance Tires • Traction Control • PSM Stability Control • Power Steering • Locking/Limited Slip Differential • GT Silver Metallic Paint • HID headlights • Engine Immobilizer • Sun/Moonroof • Rear Spoiler • Rear Wiper • Natural Grey Full Leather Dash/interior • Natural Grey Leather Steering Wheel • Natural Grey Floor Mats w/ Porsche Embroidery • Heated Front Seat(s) • Heated Mirrors • Power Mirror(s) • A/C • Driver memory full pwr adjustment • Remote Trunk Release • Keyless Entry • Climate Control • Cruise Control • Rear Defrost • Adjustable Steering Wheel Illuminated Visor Mirrors • Power Door Locks • Air Bags (STD) • Bose Two-State Modulation (TSM) switching, CD Player channel amp w/equalization, 100-watt amp 5x25 watt linear amps, 11 high-performance speakers with remote 6-Disc CD Changer •• Follow on Instagram @betterdriven ••
