I don’t think I assumed anything. I think I started by saying “ no offence to anyone”

Not quite sure why you would expect a private individual who for example had a manual turbo with OPC warranty with no issues to ask any less than a specialist Indy would?



Sellers can ask what they like BUT whilst the cars might be identical it's pretty much a stone cold fact that any dealer, and especially a Porsche specialist, is likely to sell a car at a better price as they can offer finance, part-ex and perceived peace of mind.

Canny buyers will buy privately but most would expect to save a few bob over buying from a dealer.


Yes OK I get that, but..

As I understand it no specialist can sell a Porsche themselves and the vehicle retain the OPC warranty, if it has one. So you are technically buying direct from the current private owner with the specialist acting as a broker and therefore potentially not bound by the latest Consumer Rights Act.
Now short of the specialist wanting to maintain there reputation in the event of an issue post purchase what’s to stop them quoting ’caveat emptor’ and shutting the door on you?




You are talking technicalities , thanks for trying to educate....BUT I am just looking to get a good value car here. If you can help then great !

...Yes, then you used the "BUT" word which changed the meaning your statement as I read it which is why I reacted.

Seriously, I think realistically you'll be looking for a good 4 S and there's nothing wrong with a good well looked after car, they're a quick car and probably a bit cheaper to run than a Turbo. Buying on a set budget is a game of luck, if the right car comes up and you've got the cash sitting there you might get lucky, I did when I got my Turbo.
I hope you get the car you want and not the car you could just afford, after all it's only money and the better cars hold their value, also they're a lot more fun than an ISA Very Happy

I think Easternjets hit the nail on the head, the chap wants a series of Turbo boxes ticked and he wants to buy at his money. His naivety on the subject shines through. An unblemished OPC history is not only rare but not always the best option considering that Porsche miss things all the time that a qualified indy wont.
I would like this, I want that, I wouldn't want this, over rev this, no over rev that. Forum chat, not real world experience. Do you think cars such as you mention are hanging around just waiting on you? its a fight currently with dealers to get manual Turbo cars and then they ask a massive premium for them, I personally have seen prices going up again for both 6 and 7T models.

West coast,

I think it is a pretty simple ask re the 2 options I am considering.

The first being A 997 turbo with Porsche history and no significant over-run registered history for up to £60k ish !

I think £60k ish will get a decent low miler Turbo with OPC warranty. I have (like many here) had several Porsche and many other sportscars,.. hopefully at least enough experience to work out what I need to about the car I want. Thanks for your advice however which is appreciated, I don't necessarily agree.

lol.....,,

No worries, perhaps when I finally do get a decent 911 and there is a thread about other cars previously owned then perhaps I might share some pics in the spirit of that thread . A bit irrelevant here however.Thumb

I am sure you have seen this one but it seems to have most of what you are looking for and being a '1.5' it looks about the right price......

https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201804155567108

However.....

Says full service history but does not specify OPC......
Private sale but offers to arrange finance.....

Best of luck with your hunt.[/url]

Yes, thank you for sharing, I did see that one, looks nice enough so I spent some time on the phone with seller. It also said 1 owner on the ad, but seems to have found another 6 since Surprised

I think there's no harm setting a desired criteria....You never know your luck, but I've quickly learnt there's very rarely a perfect car in the Porsche world and there always a compromise to be made.
If there's the correct spec you normally have to compromise on condition or vice versa - It all depends how long your prepared to keep looking - you will search for a long time for the elusive unicorn that rarely turns up!
