1993 Porsche 964 Anniversary

PostPosted: Mon Oct 02, 2017 9:19 pm    Post subject: Why is this 981 Cayman 29 Bags? Reply with quote

OK I want one of these it's no secret but timing is everything. It hasn't got all the spec I'd want but it has the essentials to mean a buyer won't do his dough come selling it on and for me it will be a daily driver. Not exactly a 'well known' dealer but it aint HWM or Motorhub either.

It's Here a 2014 15k miles car with PDK, a 'good' colour (Mrs Z likes this one Rolling Eyes ), Sat Nav, PSE, Heated seats, Sports wheel and it's up @£28,995. OK it's not got dual climate which is usually a deal breaker for me but I could make an exception.

Had I not just bought the CooperS I'd be onto this like a tramp on chips and man maths would mean the 964 could stay.

Hand However it's £5k under retail so there must be an issue Dont know Too much mention of 'good' in the decsription rather than 'excellent', 'mint' etc. Question

^^^Many thanks chum - yes I was giving ToreB some extra site traffic Thumb Luckily I'd closed down the rubber site Embarassed

Do you think if I offer the extra 5 bags I'll get it Dont know Plus it will add to the smoke and mirrors that buying into 981 Boxster/Cayman is a rock solid investment and you won't lose any dough in depreciation Rolling Eyes

Its just lost another bag, 28 bags now, give it a few more days it will be down to your 25!!
Smoked rear lights, 27995, think it might gave history but might be worth an inspection??

mmmm not sure, I paid £55k for a high spec one last feb from OPC Leicester with effectively a 3 year warranty. Granted I picked up a bit of a bargain Grin but I could not buy the same car today for that price nor have I seen an equivalent in the past 6 months. So for me it would cost me more to buy the car than it would have 6 months ago.

My total cost of ownership comment was primarily based on depreciation. I think the 981's will hold value due to the NA engine. Thats more than just emotional I'm still convinced someone driving a 718 v 981 back to back will always choose the 981. The only benefit a 718 has is a new car option. When that option is second hand v second hand the 718 is even less appealing. Thats why I think 981's will relatively hold values well, especially "holey grail" S's ie PSE, PASM, Sport Chrono. The GTS is a guaranteed holey grail spec and as per 997 will just hold better than even a good spec S. So yes you will pay a premium for a GTS but you will get that back in terms of less depreciation than an S. Its not even man maths, its as much of a sure thing as you can get with a car.

Convinced yet wack

It is the most fun car I've had this site of a Ferrari but without the downsides a ferrari has not least public reaction to it Wink

Believe me in the real world joe public have no interest in 911 v 981, the 981 looks better (especially in GTS spec) to most than a 911 because it looks more like a ferrari, ironic isn't it Floor

Yep, a fully loaded one will always be easier to sell but its value will always be capped by the main S prices. That's why porsche got it so right with the GTS badging, it demarcates them from the S.

Hand Why is it there are so many GTS with 'normal' AC and not climate control? I know hairdressers have the option of a free bouffant so will have the top down at any opportunity but I just don't get it Dont know I've even seem some with no heated seats Rolling Eyes

Don't stress the non climate. It was nearly a deal breaker for me, but in truth I hardly notice it now. (to cold turn up, to hot turn down really is that simple)

Honestly even my lowly 2.7 is the best Porsche I have owned (996 and 997 previous). You will not regret it. That said I may be again rethinking our cars and if you like Guards Red I may be moving around early next year!
