That makes sense, it was a 964 Turbo that I saw the Intercooler laid like a keyboard on top of the engine.

Interesting stuff, apologies for the thread hijack.

Its simple, look at what finance deals there are at present... Porsche finance do a guaranteed value of circa mid thirties... independent finance companies do a guaranteed value of late twenties.

Its a random aspect of society the perception that suddenly a car commits suicide at 100,000 miles.

If i were restricted to particular budget, I would always go for higher mileage newer car than lower mileage older car for similar money.

I'd genuinely be doing the same at £35k'ish. I'd be adding a Bilstein PSS9/10 Kit or similar, some motorsport style rims and a set of leather bucket seats and using the car as a fun daily driver. Wink

Not exactly......but I am sniffing around the 991 market. I was just highlighting the fact that even though people were saying £35k would represent a bit of interest for them, it must have sold closer to its asking price.

PS. Give us an update on the scale-model flat-6 build, Paul.....intrigued by what you thought of the quality, overall display etc etc. Thumb

There's another 105k 991C2 Cab listed on the BCA site for auction on the 17th Jan.

It's probably a much more agreeable spec for a lot of people, i.e. black outside and in, with 20" alloys.
