Very non-committal, Terry...

Come on - fess up!



I honestly don't know for sure what my next Porsche will be but it will definitely be a 6 cylinder coupe with at least 320 bhp.

I think you are mad to sell this car! It is stunning!

But is is your decision and I am intrigued to see what you end up with.

Looking at the history...

Should be about 3 years newer than last car... Let's say 2010/2011-ish

Auto is a trend - therefore PDK

Body will be coupe not cabrio...

Sensible mileage but not a garage queen

Very solid provenance/dealer...

Not bad Inspector Clouseau Smile

Funnily enough, purely for research purposes, I'd actually booked to view that car but bad weather put me off. It hasn't got Sports Chrono or paddles and I don't like the sunroof on the 991.

It's also a fair bit more than I'm wanting to spend.

It is my second favourite colour though. Thumb

Part of me agrees with you Ben but after 7 fantastic Euro-Tours including 4 x Dinslakens, 3 visits to Nurburg/Eifel Forest plus 1 each to Stuttgart, the B500/Black Forest and Spa as well as numerous repeat visits to major UK events it's simply time for a change.

Also, family circumstances mean that in future the missus is more likely to accompany me and she's always found the performance of the Turbo too raw and the ride a bit too sporty.

I'll miss the torque and outright shove that 'Red' has in abundance but my days of airfield strips, track days and 175mph+ on the autobahns are behind me.

NB: Disclaimer Smile. For the record, 'Red' has only done 6 x airfield style runs and a few slow laps of race circuits in my ownership. She did help me to my own PB of 177 in Germany (without her breaking sweat) but since then I've found 165 to be my personal 'bottle' thresh-hold.

Don’t worry your ‘careful elderly owner’ label is quite safe Very Happy

Really looking forward to seeing your next step on your 911 adventure Terry. Your car is priced very competitively (ahem, a little too competitively for us contemplating a similar move wack ) so shouldn’t hang around long. And as others have said, and the service history clearly shows, it’s a very well cared for example. GLWTS thumbsup

You were definitely on the fence last time we met and discussed, glad to see you have made a decision Thumb
Many happy miles in convoy on the Dinslaken, Spa, Donington trips with “Red”.

A red gen1 991 coupe , no sunroof , with your T8 number plate will be a worthy replacement. I’m now going to scour the ads till we find a good’un.

GLWTS, it a fair price I think .

Nope. After my long time in a 997 the only one I'd ever consider is a Gen2 Turbo and they're waaaaaayyyyyy too expensive.

Askgeez is definitely barking up the right tree. Thumb

My guess is that the deal has already been done and Terry is using the prep period to try and beat his p/ex price Scratch Chin

Good luck with the sale and well done for going back to NA cars, sound > torque Very Happy

Coincidentally my PB is also 177mph (in Germany too... obviously), just goes to prove you don't need turbos to get there!
