I don’t care if it has a manual, or an IMS bearing update, or super low miles (that’s not necessarily a good thing for a 15 year old M96). No one should be paying $54k for a freakin 996 convertible.
If you’re paying in that ballpark for a 996 convertible, it better be a Turbo. For $54k you can get a beautiful, clean, low mileage 997.2 C2S, or a mint and low mileage 997.1 C4S. Just don’t waste that money on a 996 Carrera.
But if they can find a sucker for this thing, then good for them.
