Arena Red is a great colour but is it any wonder they've stalled with the interior pics. Blue is just about liveable on Iris Blue or Polar Silver but someone was obviously pi$$ed or blind when they ordered this one...!

There was a cracking black one with a for sale sticker on it at Porsche in the Glen had a custom two tone re-trim Black\Grey which Personally I thought was nicely done no price on it however if anyone is looking for a black one I could probably find out some details.

Hand It's departed from originality so that will knock it with the sandal/sock brigade. Plus trying to apply for Illuminati membership the voting bag will have more black balls than the bottom of a rabbit's hutch what

Sounds like a similar re-trim to the infamous Yorkshire Classic Porsche 993... Grin

To be fair anything older than a 997 smells of cow sh ite inside, with tired old shiny leather, id of thought a re trim was must for all Thumb

Strip out the blue, bang in black/grey- Job done- stuff the Illuminati bye

Enquired and Now Sold. Appears not bad compared to some I have seen advertised.

A few 993 sales seem to be happening so relieved market is still reasonable.

Smoke and mirrors chum. Odd how it is all the high price cars with well-known dealers sell but we never find out who buy them Rolling Eyes Private sales are a different matter - unless you price it right.

Cracking car, just seems no one wants to travel north for it, we do have roads and flights that come all the way up here....


Do you think that's the problem Question

Assuming its the one with 112k on the clock and a ticket price of £90k. I`m not sure people appreciate the restoration work that might have gone into it and just move on to the next given the asking price. Dont know


I traveled to Dublin for my C2S last year. Even had two pay for a second set of flights for me and my partner at City airport on a bank holiday weekend as I'd stupidly booked them in the wrong direction! Took some days off work, drove a big chunk of the Wild Atlantic Way, stayed in a place so amazing I booked two extra nights – and the mileage was also passed the psychological 100k by a decent amount.

That car being for sale with Porsche, and I am guessing with the Porsche Classic Warranty in place and all the fuss that comes with buying from a main dealer will be attraction. As will the roads up there, probably just as many wealthy Porsche enthusiasts in Scotland as elsewhere. Looks a great car with a lot of work lavished on it, no doubt in far better condition than some of the 80k mile ones we are seeing that we are asked to believe have only covered 4k a year. Can only be one thing holding it back and I doubt it is finding someone prepared to book a flight to Aberdeen from City Airport.

Not the best of pictures it had the standard Porsche grey inserts with black bolsters it was a quality job you can just see the carrera4s logo on the headrests but your right probably not one for the purists no idea what the asking price is looked like it had had a full resto as the paint was lovely.

Your cousin has bought a beautiful car. No smoke and mirrors. It sold for the
asking price of £90k and 911V could have sold it several times over.
