Hi everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself...I appreciate how this forum is more technical than the forums I've been on before. I joined 2 years ago when I first wanted to research my childhood dream car, and I'm expecting ownership to become a reality in the next 12-18 months.

I'm looking exclusively at the 2009 C2/4S Cabrio. I'll be sure to scour all the issues that members have encountered; I'm curious about this "IMS" thing I've seen mentioned...

I've owned a 2 2004 M3 Cabrios since 2007 and its been my favorite daily (first one) and weekend (second one) driver thus far, until I had a 2004 C2S Cabrio for 2 weeks as an insurance rental. I absolutely loved that car, and I'm sure the 385HP from the 997.2 will more than satiate my appetite for higher performance (the 2004 C2S didn't feel like it had the same oomph as my very heavy M3 vert did, for some reason).

I've always kept my cars bone stock, so I'm hoping to get lucky with a one-owner clean car...thank you everyone for reading! I'm also curious about the "Retail Price checks" mentioned in the moderator's threads on top, available to Contributing Members. Might pay for that feature, sounds interesting.

Congrats if you pull the trigger on the purchase. The 2009 engine has a TOTALLY different design. It is a DFI engine which DOES NOT have an IMS bearing. So 0 "worries" about an intermediate shaft bearing failure. if you are prone to worrying about such a thing.

GL with the purchase and thanks for the post!

great, thanks for addressing that! I just went through the 2009 order guide for the 911, conveniently available on this site, and there are so many options I want!!! This is going to be interesting...I just checked out porsche.com's US pre-owned inventory and I see that there are limited MT cars available, all in the $90K range, which is well above my budget so I'll continue to do my homework.

I'm hoping the new chassis will put some downward pressure on the 997.2 asking prices. Would be sweet if I could buy a member's car off him/her, to free them up to buy the new chassis. Wow, 400HP!! Also, what year was the GTS introduced? so much to learn...
