i've been toying with the idea of selling my 997.2 4s

i even put it on here for sale a while back

its a bit small for the kids now, but i have a vw t5 campervan i can drive when wife and kids want to go anywhere - but its big, heavy, slow and i don't really want to drive it every day (997 is a daily drive)

wife has an i3 so thats limited for range

so do i bite the bullet and look for an rs7 or a panamera?

I've had an a7 previously, fantastic car and do fancy a nice panamera gts or turbo

kids have been very pro 997, but now they find it uncomfortable they have been moaning abaout it, they are only 9 & 11 so ive a lot of driving them about still to do too!

any advice from others who have been there would be appreciated

Macan Turbo may be a good solution

Done the selling of a 997 C4 S, to buy a 991! Other than that I’d keep the 997 and get something as a runaround Dont know

I am with Sponge on this , depends if you love the t5 , personally I would keep the 997 for the daily, and bloke time, get shot of the T5 and buy a Cayenne or something family like. That was my plan mmmm ended up with a continental GT Grin not really what I set out to do Floor

Sell the T5, get a M135 or M140 for the kids....... M135i's start at £13k now, a massive amount of car. Wife has an M240i cabrio, bloody fast. M135 would be reasonably practical!

If I was in the same position i.e. kids necessitating a larger car but wanting to keep high end performance; I’g go RS4 Avant route. Which era would depend on your budget. Get ‘em re-mapped and they are super-car killers!

It`s a case of you "get" the "Porsche thing" and are hooked for life, or you move on to something else having owned one. Your situation sort of intimates that you haven`t got the "Porsche thing" to me Dont know

Personally, I put up with the whinging and moaning from my 3 now grown up kids and they now fully understand what it`s all about. My 20 year old daughter now believes that my Boxster belongs to her in the near future nooo

As Porsche say, "there is no substitute" thumbsup

Keep the 911, I've got a Discovery as my second car for family/dog outings and it's perfect ~ big, luxurious, powerful etc etc. I've been tempted by an RS4 or RS6 but neither would be as big and comfy as the Disco, but the power is very tempting!

Keep it. The cost of changing over for another car would be the same as buying a beater to stop their whinging ways
