154k miles. 996 C2 registered 1997. No service book, and I just bought the car so I have no idea really if it is the original engine still.

1999 C2 manual Cab, 100k miles. All fine through extended Porsche check and service.

Like lphrg10 above Ive just bought the car, its got virtually no history and allthough matching numbers, its all in the haze whats done and not.

I will replace the IMS when the clutch is due, but I dont see that comming any time soon.

I just turned 90,000 miles. Original engine. Some bolt-on parts have had to be replaced due to normal wear.

I think the 60K maintenance is very important. Water pump, motor mounts, window regs and motors go out among other

stuff. 99 C2 6sp coupe.

BTW... I have a 96 Volvo 850 R sedan that just turned 233K! I don't worry about the Porsche but the Volvo ...

nothing can run forever.

New Renntech member and 996 owner. Previous Porsche was a '86 Carrera that I purchased with 89K miles and sold with 120K miles. Totally reliable. My 'new' 996 has 124K miles and did not come with records. Had a PPI done which showed zero leaks and most likely an original clutch and IMS bearing. Drives nice and engine is smooth and pulls like it should. Will pull the trigger on a clutch and IMS (LN ceramic) in the next couple months.

Still going strong here at 128,000 miles on my 2002 C4S. I did have a ceramic IMSB from LN Engineering installed when my original clutch was replaced at 125,000 miles over the summer.

2002 C4 cab with 47,500; still a pup compared to some of the miles others are reporting. I'm a new owner, since 44K. I use it as a daily driver and it's really a pleasure to just get in and drive to work/home everyday. At some point I expect I'll get into a 997.2 but patient for the "right car." My C4 drives like new and delivers power as I'd expect. I baby it a bit limiting my RPM to 6K (maybe 6,500 on the track). I get ~20 mpg on my daily commute, and that's with some full throttle acceleration in the mix (who can resist?).

I tracked the car once so far. What a blast; the car just came alive under track conditions. The braking zone and turn-in were exciting; the C4 seemed to let me set the chassis quick and me get to maintenance throttle early.The exhaust notes from apex off were just beautiful and opening the wheel on exit let me get the throttle down hard without any issue. I left with a whole new respect for my Porsche. Can't wait to get on the track again.

Have about 68k on my 2002 Targa. Had 62k when I purchased it back in April. I plan for this to be pretty much my daily driver 8 months out of the year and seeing I average about 18,000 miles a year, my Porsche will see 8-10k of that. Should have 100k plus in no time. Original clutch, IMS and RMS but plan to have all that taken care of next spring.post-93099-0-48883800-1384104315_thumb.j

2003 C4 Convertible,

60k, on engine. purchased one year ago and couldn't get the service records. Had for one year so far and only changed the ignition switch for approx. $15 in parts and one hour of DIY with assistance from the forum. Drove only 1,500 miles in one year.

I've put 6,000 miles on my 99 C-2 with Tip. Now it has 135,000 miles and is running strong. Oil, trans fluid/filter change recently

and had a busted transmission mount changed.

I love this 911!

121,000 miles on '99 cab., and still going strong. If something breaks, I fix it.  As of 9/30/16, right at 132K and still has excellent pressure and temps.  Latest DIY was repairing the passenger side tension rope retainer for the cab top.  Last year replaced the IACV to address a rough idle.  Both were pretty easy operations.

C4S with 102,000 as of this morning, original IMS/ RMS. No leaks, oil filter squeaky clean as of last oil change. Always above 3k rpm, oil changes every 5k miles, daily dose of redline! Food for thought for those who worry about the reliability of these cars. I am planning to upgrade the IMSB/ AOS/ RMS when I do the clutch however.

Hit 90,000 today.  1999 Cab.  Purchased 14 months ago with 64,000.

New AOS ( DIY) @ 82,000.  New water pump @ 68,000 (belt as well).  O2 Sensors @75,000.  New convertible top last month.

Purchased from used car dealer so no clue as to IMS, but oil changed every 5K no grit/metal/shiny/sharp bits in the filter...also put in a magnetic drain plug last year, no shavings.

 

Daily driver with 3x month trip Dallas to Houston and back.

Love the car.
