Probably could be the cheapest clean-title 997 currently on the market. This is also the more powerful “S” model. Smoking issue on start up could be due to a bad Air Oil Separator (AOS) and ticking noise could be a sticky lifter. However, it could be something more severe. IMS bearing is claimed to have been replaced, saving the next owner a few grand in preventative maintenance. For $16.5k, would you buy this and take a chance?
