I met the new owner of this car at Tonbridge this morning and had a good chat. He'd brought it in for its MOT.

He's a convert from BMW and his name is Les.

I've told him all about 911uk so he may be amongst our ranks very soon. He's also local so may join the Kent breakfast posse.

So, questions are;

Do you still see yourself in one in two years time?
How much change back your way after the swap?

This car is up for sale again at OPC Tonbridge.

It's a sign of what's happened in the 911 market over the last 3 years that although it's now nearly 3 years older and has done 32,642 miles it's still up for £63,845 - only £6,150 less.

So much for me hoping it would be c£45k by now. Sad Sad Sad

T8, im not getting it with the 991? Id get it with a 991 turbo or GTS, but not with a Carrera. Dont know
Your current turbo is stunning, in absence of ever finding a speed yellow 997 turbo or GTS, im drawn more and more to guards, it looks so good on a 997.

I can totally see the appeal of the Carrera with the turbo'd engines. Simple remap and slight tweak and there getting close to 500bhp which is more than enough for a road car. They still sound good and have all the plus' of a 911.

A nicely drivers focused specced car would be a brilliant road car IMO.

I like this one. Needs a few tiny little tweeks but otherwise very nice.

Thanks, 'Red' will be a hard act to follow.



The current 'cost to change' means we'll be together for a while yet.

I put 6k miles a year on my 911s and after 3.5 years am conscious of the mileage now starting to show. I know I'd miss the shove that the extra 74 horses give but would soon get used to it.

I'm actually waiting for a C4S but the C2S featured in this thread would tempt me at the right price. I fell for the 991 when I first saw one - unbelievably 6 years ago - and really thought I'd have one by now. The 991 Turbo is far too much for my needs and the GTS will never come down to what I'd be prepared to spend on one.

True id be proper tempted by a 991 4S, but there too close to GTS money Dont know I saw my first 991 GTS at Stuttgart, was blown away, such a nice looking car, with an amazing interior. One day....

I was at Porsche Tonbridge on the 28th July and saw this car. It looked stunning and also have my eyes set on a similar car in the future now.

The ducktail and guards red made it look very special.

T8, on a positive note, if it had depreciated to £45k, your car may have also depreciated. Porsche residuals are still very strong.
