Instruct 'Peter Morgan' to do an inspection.
They have done my last two Porsches, first class.

I am shortly going to look at a gen 1 991 CS which will be my first Porsche! Very excited but also very apprehensive. As you know, there aren't many around and I have been looking for a few months now so when one pops up that is my perfect spec it is very tempting to grab with both hands! However, it is a private purchase so treading carefully. The car has OPC warranty that runs out early next year. What risk is there for me because clearly the major parts will be covered as I will be renewing the warranty? How long realistically can I expect the clutch to last from new on an 'average' 991CS2? I am not concerned about incidentals such as brakes and tyres but what else should I be considering (apart from the usual car buying issues such as HPI, etc)? I would really appreciate some help on this. Thanks.

Friday morning finally arrived, left Bristol on the 6am train to Paddington. Then a tube to the seller’s local tube station......it was pouring with rain so I was pleased he was collecting me from the station......then I heard it! I could not believe finally I was going to own my first Porsche and that it was going to look like this! Paperwork and transfer sorted and I was finally sat in my new car. Perfect. Just sitting there you appreciate the sheer beauty of the interior. Driving to home was just pure pleasure. At one stage I realised I was only doing about 55mph! Such a relaxed drive although gave it ‘the beans’ a couple of times and just laughed out loud! Sheer perfection.
The seller was such a good guy for agreeing to carry out the 111 test, sorting the 2year warranty and for having kept the car in totally unblemished condition. I will try to attach some photos now but if not I will do when not on my iPad! Spec to follow because it is exactly my spec list with a couple of extras. Car is now in storage until mid-November whilst I finish my garage. 911_AS has sorted his garage already worship
I can see what you guys see in these cars now. The seller asked how long I will keep the car.....truth is I cannot see myself selling it. Now I need to try to think of something else once in a while!

Looks great. Glad the transfer went smoothly. That laugh out loud thing happens a lot when you press the loud peddle with these cars.

There are a few meets and tours in the diary already for next year. Check them out in the meets section Thumb there will be some more before the end of the year as well.

Yes - I love the wheels! Wheels always make a car. These wheels look good both stationary and when driving, more so if you polish the rims.
