Post-COAL Update: My 2002 Porsche Carrera Lives On, One Year Later

2002 Porsche Carrera

Yesterday I received a text from an unfamiliar number, turned out it was from David, the fellow that purchased my Porsche from me exactly a year ago (has it been that long already?)  Apparently, he is very much enjoying it and the car is doing well, to wit: “Hey Jim, Today last year I bought your 911.  If you’re curious how it is, the car has been nothing short of fantastic and one of the best decisions of my life.  I’ve made a few changes but nothing drastic  Cheers!”  He also included two photos.

It looks like he’s made a few changes that take the car to the next level, I’m assuming there’s some stuff underneath as well that’s new as it looks lower, but the rear wing is much larger, the OZ wheels are a larger size and look great, as well as what seems to be a different (larger?) front splitter along with a 911 badge instead of the Carrera script on the rear decklid and a different exhaust.  Oh, and the license plate is great, if you can’t see it, it’s “LOL  IMS”, which is perfect for this car with its factory replaced engine that shouldn’t ever suffer from the (perhaps overblown) malady.

I hope you keep enjoying your car, David, and thanks for the update!  I also felt it was one of the best decisions I ever made and am glad that after doing everything with it that I wanted to it has found a good home with a very appreciative owner.  Keep on enjoying it, it is one of the best Cars Of A Lifetime that I ever had and looks like it’s the same for you!
