Splendid car Very Happy

It would seem that Porsche did really improve the car. Just wondering whether or not the electric steering will let the package down.

I have just spec'd a basic model and hit £87,000 without any problems

Looks as if my 996 Turbo S and I will remain friends for a while yet!!

Lets think .... 2014 for a second hand one

Will it impact on 997 prices, especially those with pdk. Wonder?

I hate it. They are trying to appeal to a wider audience with this generation and have made the 911 look like a bloody Panamera. Hate the back. Hate the front. I'm sure it will be a delight to drive but Porshe are homogenising their range too much IMO. If anyone wants to give me one as a birthday present, that would be really lovely.

From the configurator the PCM is an option
hoewever, the Porsche webpage said it is standard for all of the 911 models.

It is an undeselectable option, like the mandatory third year warranty or VTS.

So it is always included in the price and hence in the standard spec.

I think to tick the most desirable items + other smaller ones you will always be over £100k

I could get the spec under £100k fairly easily (removal of PCCBs and some carbon trim), but beyond that, pretty much everything else is stuff I'd really want my new car to have!!

I can only assume that a similar spec turbo will be £130k+

2011 Porsche 997 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Sun Sep 04, 2011 7:13 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

It is certainly a more costly car in HK.
But if you compare the prices of their used motors.
The GTS which would be around £70 at an OPC is 1.8million HKD which is around £145k so the prices are around double of UK.
The same would be true for 2007 Cayman S which costs 738,000 HKD(£58k). My old 2007 Cayman S was never 58k new!

It would see that a porsche is the preserve of a lot much richer Hong Kong citizens. Laughing
I am sure Porsche management would say is it Keeps the brand exclusive...

Now, whether to choose ceramic brakes or carbon pack....

HK increased the car tax 15% this February Evil or Very Mad
The Cayman S costs HKD 1,030,000 right now

People said the 993 was the last real 911, it's a point to muse on I guess, so what is a 'real' 911? One that stuffs you sideways into a hedge, or that you have to remove a rib to reach the radio controls?

Fact is that Porsche make great sportscars, some are better than others, but they rarely come up with a duffer. I think we all need to see this car in the flesh, hear the views of the experts and drive one for ourselves before we start lamenting the passing of the 997.

Agree! (With the 993 being the last real 911!) Just get horrid grey stubble or id grow a big FO beard lol) All that water and stuff and making them as big as buses really did spoil things Floor
It was always the driver stuffed 911's into hedges not the car Grin Grin
Im just jealous ill have any 911 at moment
