I am looking at a private seller 2005 C2S that is fully loaded (full leather, nav,chrono) with about 14k miles on it.

The seller said he was offered 42k and he was not interested.

1- What would be a fair price for this car?

2-The warranty just expired. I read about problems with 2005 997. Can I get this car certified from Porsche\get the warranty extended? Ballpark on how much that cost?

Thank you

You cannot get it certified unless it is actually owned by the dealer..not sure about the cost..check kbb or NADA....

Not sure about the warranty.

Price for a fully loaded 05 C2S will be between hight 40s and high 50s depending on the mileage.

$42K would be an absolute steal if the car in question is good and clean.

1. You can't get a CPO on any Porsche if it's original warranty has expired. Of course CPO can only be offered by a Porsche dealer.

2. You can get a aftermarket maintenance warranty. Not a lot good things reported on these programs. Lots of restrictions, deductibles, etc.

3. The alleged problems of a MY2005 are over stated. The most common is the infamous RMS but that effects all Porsche's in general due to the split case design.

4. MY2005 had a few factory recalls but for the most part they were low level problems (ie. exhaust tips, air filter housing, etc.). There were a couple of most significant recalls such as TIP tranny replacement but those effected the very early build cars. You can have a dealer service shop check the status of a car you're interested in by having them look into the database by the VIN.

As you can see from my profile I own a early build 997S (#337 of the line). It's been fairly reliable in the 2.5 years I've owned it. I had the RMS replaced awhile back while under warranty as a result of a small amount of oil seepage. You are going to start seeing a lot of 2005 997 Porsche's on the market w/o any warranty left. Depending on the car condition and service records I wouldn't hesitate buying one if the price is right.

Good luck on your quest!

Check the maintenance history to see if the oil and filter had been changed at least once, and run a check to see if it's been over-revved. Ask how it had been driven, and ask the owner to please be frank. If it's been "babied" with low revs and multiple short trips, I'd be cautious. I paid $50K cash for mine last November from a VW dealer (it was claimed to be owned by a manager) +$3K for an extended warranty, and it had about 28K miles on the odo.
