1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Fri Apr 13, 2018 10:40 am    Post subject: Time to 'fess up, how many miles you done this year? Reply with quote

Took mine out for its annual MOT and embarrassed to say I have only covered 732 miles in a whole entire calendar year.

Some of this is due to owning other vehicles, some of it down to it being a garage queen and i dont like using it on tiny short journeys or in bad weather for which i have a daily hack but overall, I just wish I worked less and had the chance to use the thing more.

667 in the year leading up to its most recent MOT.

Since it's been in storage since January and I doubt I'll be able to have it back until middle of May, this year ain't looking so grand either.

And I've just realised this is in a 993 specific section. Ignore me Laughing

and thats why i sold mine. values were rocketing, it wasnt getting hammered but the mileage was creeping, and i didnt want to ruin it in salt/winter.
you can cash in, and get something you arent afraid of hammering, plus have cash in bank. win win!

7100 last year several continental tours and uk runs, taking it over 100k, so no need to worry now.
Sorry, but unless you are ultra low milage and/or very rare, then not using it is folly, you will not be making any money on it these days, so no use, no gain, you might as well sell it!

Since 1/1/18, 0 miles. Local roads seem to have been permanently covered in snow, mud, or wet gloopy cack since then and when they do miraculously dry up for 5 minutes, the surfaces resemble Swiss cheese.

Just realised I haven't been out on my bike this year either.

Too few. I plan to make amends in Wales - very soon.

I have some pitiful excuses if called before the Head to account for my sins 🤷‍♂️

I don't get it:

The round trip to Devizes must be say 40 miles, so discounting those 'visits' you actually took it out 'for other pleasures' maybe 34 miles 🤔

This is my first 911, bought it the end of May last year (17) with 55300 on the clock, it now has 57300ish...
I love driving the car but don't really want to add to many more miles onto it.
I should add that I also have two other cars and a up and coming classic motorbike to use as well... I only need my transport twice a week for work as I get free travel for the other few days that I work, I tend to drive to work which is a few miles each way just to use any of the above cars, and I always go the long way round in the 911 just so that it warms up a bit.
Most would say that its a waste but that's the way it is.
I have my 911 and as from this week I'm seriously thinking of saving for a turbo now as I am now a few £'s better of each month as I have now paid off my mortgage Smile

Bottom line 2K for me what
