Hand But that aint it

Will the 964 Celebration be gone by then? ....... or don't you want to pile on the miles? and keep away from the Boxster 987 DFI market that belongs to me ....... Wink

I would be going in the 964, except I'm thne travelling down to Southern Spain for 2 weeks so all that is a bridge too far. nooo If it was jyst UK-Monte-UK no problem in the celebration.

I think come May next year there will have been some market corrections and the sub-prime 25 bagger 993 will be around Grin

Question 987. Ah yes I want PDK and you still want to stir it up with a stick so you're safe.

I did start to have an interest in a Alfa 4C but the build quality is supposed to be shoite and they're wider than a Range Rover what General feedback is 'Nice to drive, but not nice to own'.

They also have a 997.1 turbo Tip on the website with GT3 alloys and the write up talks about the "revised engine with direct injection and the introduction of the “PDK” dual clutch..." And "the 997 was a lot faster and lighter as the car could do 0-60MPH in three seconds".

http://specialistcarsltd.co.uk/product/porsche-997-turbo-tiptronic-3/

I presume the first paragraph is intended as some background info and meant to be read in isolation, but it could potentially be misleading for a 911 newbie who may not know the full range available. A fairly poor show from a "specialist"!

Thought you were after a 981 PDK? If I take you 964 off your hands for , I don't know, let's say 25 bags, as I'm feeling festive; then you have a nice little deposit for your 981!

981 is the 'preferred choice'. Trouble is I'm having such fun in my CooperS at the minute and it might just make the trip to Monaco Rolling Eyes

Do you think a garage like Specialist Cars make there money on service and repair work and car sales are just a bonus. They seem to have the same stock in for months on end?

Doesn't matter how long it takes to sell as long as it sells for more than they gave for it. It's money in the bank. They can sit on it as long as needed I suspect, assuming as you say they cover overheads by repairs etc. They've been around a long time and should I imagine have a lot of cash in cars.

Zingari, you only live once, you need a 981 with PSE in your life. Best time to buy over Xmas and will hold its value well now that Porsche have confirmed how crap the 4 pot is in the 718 GTS Thumb You won’t be able to buy a noise like it in ANY car soon Grin
