    Interesting! I know there are short- and long-tail hardtops, but I had not heard of a long-tail softtop before. I wonder what that looks like and how it would work.

    "Vegan Interior" = non-Leather seats & dashboard, etc. Says "suede" so maybe Alcantara?

    299 has the Premium Microfiber interior, which covers the seats and door card inserts. The rest of the panels will be the standard plastic.

    Woah. That looks like one of the few factory 2DIN retrofits back when they were offered. Definitely factory spec.

    Indeed. That's not the A&E retrofit that's been posted.

    Now that I'm thinking about it, it's highly likely that 956 was produced with that upgrade. Many of the last 2.0 cars built featured some of the 2.5 upgrades (sound deadending, 2.5 seats, etc.) - especially with the first 2.5 VIN being 964. If you look closely, you can also see the enhanced side bolstering on 956's seats. She has 2.5 seats too! :)

    I squinted, but recognizing 2.5 bolsters vs 2.0 from that sliver of photo is above my pay grade

    BUYER BEWARE:
    As a previous owner of VIN # 613 ... I was alerted that this car popped up on eBay. Who told me this? The CURRENT owner! He said this is not his listing. FRAUD LISTING can be found HERE.

    Note that the ”fake” seller has the location as my city/state — but that the car is NOT currently for sale is does NOT currently reside in Ohio, either. So again— do NOT bid on the above listing as it is FAKE!

    Thanks for everyone’s fast response. The listing has now been removed. Here is a screenshot of the fake listing.

    Update: The scammer is contacting bidders directly through their personal email addresses. If you bid on this car, report immediately to EBay.

    LOL, It’s nice to know the transmission shifts perfectly ! 5E3A636C-8948-47B7-943C-570F91FE84E3.jpeg
