think about the performance difference/looks/everything about them... the targa is not worth more than 47-48... i mean unless this targa has EVERYTHING u want, colors/options. besides that i would wait and get a turbo. u can find a 02 turbo with 30-40k for 61-63 if u do ur shopping well

It's a fair price for a perfect one. Not a steal but some of the "steals" end up with hidden costs.

Get a full PPI. Check the rear main seal which is an issue on some of the 996's. It's engine out if it's bad. Also, get somebody to drive it that knows how the transaxles should feel.

Having said that, You're giving up a lot of practicality with the M for not a lot more performance. Stock to stock the 911 will handle maybe 10% better and has better brakes but not much more power if any. The targa adds some weight. Pcar has better steering feel but the nod for fit and finish goes to the M.

Both great cars.
