My Porsche 964 now has 200,000 miles on the clock
I jumped in the car this morning all exited at the prospect of taking my 200k odometer photo , it read 199988 miles so only 12 miles to go , i grabbed my camera and set off , 2 miles down the road i noticed that the odometer had actually stuck at 199988 , no movement , "Bollocks " , i couldn't believe it , i have taken the car well over 200k today but it looks like the car doesn't want to display the fact !.

So its time to celebrate a "mile"stone ! , we reached 200,000 miles , the car had 150k on it when I acquired it 2 years ago and ive added another 50,000 happy miles, i have been looking forward to this day for ages , its not the first car in the world to do this but for me it confirms the fact that these “sports cars” are strong usable every day “sports cars” .

In two years ive had to replace the old dried up oil lines running along the sill and a brake booster pump , everything else has been basic servicing items , the car has clean oil running through it all the time and is well looked after , I will continue my 500 miles of pure pleasure every week and hope to see 300k as quick as possible.
I actually bought a cake as well but we ate it before i got a chance to take the photos . Keith

Well done Thumb There are a few places that can fix the cogs in the speedo for you if you dont want to do it yourself. The dial looks good so worth fixing it Thumb

The car had exactly the same problem about ten or eleven years ago.

IIRC I believe the previous owner reset the odometer to zero.

Very Happy

PS
Congratulations, she is now officially run in. You can give her full throttle now.

Onwards and upwards goes the mileage on my 964, the car is unbelievable , it pulls just as strong as the day i got it , 500 miles a week just for fun, still after every drive i want to get straight back in and carry on driving , i use it all year round every day, no leaks , no problems . just get in and go , its amazing .

looking forward to 300k in a couple of years time

Keith Thumb

Brilliant stuff Keith. Is that 250,000 on the clock? Did it start working normally again?

You're an inspiration to us all.
