    Pinging this owner

    Is the owner of this car here or is this too good to be true? OP didn't list the price.

    1972 2.4 911 TE
    76600 miles
    Matching Numbers, 3 owners in California, 1 owner in New Zealand.
    Imported this Porsche to New Zealand in 1994.
    Being a USA vehicle obvious place to sell back to is USA.
    Excellent condition.
    Lots of work to keep it in tip top condition.

    Be careful. The glossy black stuff on the tires is always a bad sign.

    Cheers,

    One of my rules of thumb for buying auto related stuff:

    If it's not made of metal or painted, it shouldn't be shiny.
    Glossy "wet" dashes, tires, vinyl seats and other interior bits are usually the tells of overcompensating sellers

    This gives you a little information but NOT the owners details.

    I saw the car a year or 2 back but did not stop to look at it.
    Nice colour though.

    Someone here in NZ has got a full "carjam" report on this car 15 minutes ago so as they say,,, "the cat is out of the bag"
