Interesting, I was looking at this line of work myself a few years ago. I'm not happy in my current role so may look into this again.

I actually expect the average mileage of turbo's to be less so yours is really abnormal Smile
Are you planning on keeping it for the foreseeable future?

Im not sure tbh. Its on 85k miles now. If I keep it another 12 months it will soon be hitting 100k which will scare some buyers and affect the value.

One argument says that if I sell it now, a "normal" owner could probably run it for a couple of years and then sell it on with still well below 100k on it and potentially not loose any money on it.

On the other hand, these cars were made for driving and for someone like myself who wants a turbo to drive, rather than worry about harming the cars value then my car could be appealing.

Ideally I wouldnt mind moving onto a 997.2 turbo pdk, but the cost to move is probably going to be at least 20k, probably more. Whereas I could invest a lot less than that having ES Motors / 9e tweek my car and just keep it.

Decisions!

I'm actually surprised the annual use is the same, given these cars are getting older I guessed people would start using them as second cars or on special occasions.



Actually your first instincts were correct. The average for early cars, now 12-13 years old, is nearer to 5k than 6k per annum.

Looking back at my data from 2013 & 2015 there was a pattern that has continued. It seems that generally these cars do c25k in their first 3 years and less per year thereafter.

The same was so with the 996.

I've just analysed the 991 Carreras currently advertised and that pattern has definitely continued.


Thread resurrected as 'average 911 mileage?' seems to be the topic of the day. Wink

As my work is only 6 miles away then I am ashamed that even if I use the 911 regularly ( 1 week in 3 as I have other cars that also need using ) some mot’s are only 1000 miles apart! I use it to do long runs to the south west from the midlands but that may only be once or twice a year. Now I’ve just had the Hartech full rebuild I wonder how to run it in as of course short journeys need avoiding. Now I am aware that “get a job further away” “move house” etc will be suggested, but in the real world that is not sensible or practical. I must admit short of selling the other cars that I also have an emotional attachment to it is a problem. More weekends away is a possibility but having had a stroke in November I should be only driving short journeys. Guess give it to the wife to drive? Surprised Surprised Drive

Thoughts gentlemen?
( and no, I am not going to lend it to anyone ! )

I've just come back from dropping my son at college followed by a grocery shop - driving our 14 year old RAV4 I hasten to add. Why anyone would choose to drive a lovely Porsche on wet roads, with massive traffic queues everywhere, dodging muppet drivers and Christmas shoppers is beyond me. My Porsche is tucked away in the garage for the time being.
For me, it isn't that I don't want to drive the Porsche, it's just that crowded winter roads in Hampshire are no fun to drive in ANY vehicle.

T8 - for your stats - I've done 2000 miles in eight months of ownership, and the car has done 35000 in seven years, average 5000 p.a. obviously. It's a gen 2 2011 Carrera 2.

Im precious with the 911 too, its been in the dehumidified garage under an indoor cover for several weeks, should have sorned it for dec, jan. We have regular car, but also a 986 Boxster, which gets used for local runs, all weathers, no worries where its parked, very liberating. 911 mileage has been 5-6k p.a.(will go down now that the 986 has turned up) 2k of that on a roadtrip each year.

Ive had mine since April and done less than 1000 miles, now 71500 in total on a 2005 997.1 2S. In my defence it has spent some time off the road getting it how I want it (Wheel refurb, discs and pads replaced, unexpected water pump replacement and other bits while that was being done)

She is now tucked up with a trickle charger and overinflated tyres until the spring.

I promise to try harder next year to put more miles on Rolling Eyes

I do roughly 6000 miles a year (not quite 10,000km) in each of my cars, perhaps a bit less as the office is a little closer nowadays.

I use the cars for pretty much everything - shopping, tracking, touring, commuting, winter and summer included - but I don't leave the 997 at the airport if I'm flying. It's better to take the other car, which has a built in disincentive (in other words, a fixed bucket seat), so any prospective thief would need to match my height/length of leg if he or she had any plans to reach the pedals and actually drive the thing.

Mate, given that you have already recently had a stroke which I am very pleased that you survived . you should already be at that "we only live once bloody well enjoy it" point so suggest you plan 2019 to be a year where you put a few miles on the car and really enjoy it, taking time out to chill and relax from work etc. "work to live not live to work" Thumb Thumb

Not Pork but a similar concept; I bought a GSX-R from new and put 13,500 miles on it in 14 months before handing it back to the dealer. I got about 10% less than I would have if it had been an average 3.5k bike.

That extra 10,000 miles cost me peanuts in the grand scheme of things... obviously with Pork values much higher it would have more of an effect, but unless you hit Apollo911 miles it won't change that much imho.

Dont know For me; use it and abuse it and take the hit... Thumb
