Hey everyone.

Serious question, I have a 981 Boxster and looking to finally make the jump to a 911 (992).

I have saved 155K over the past 3 years. Is this enough for a well-specced turbo? Or am I better off getting a fully-loaded 992 4S?

A 992 Turbo would be quite special. With that budget you could pick up a 991.2 TURBO S and still have £30k in your pocket, with very similar levels of performance(assuming it's not 700bhp). Just a thought

Lovely position to be in!
As above go for 991 1/2 Turbo or S with spare cash in hand.
All the best 👍

Wow, that's one hell of a jump and one hell of a first 911. Surprised

£155k should get you a well spec'd 992 Turbo when it comes out but you may be better to go for the 'S' with fewer extra options.

A fully loaded C4S would save you a lot of £££s but it won't be any like as special and will probably depreciate more.

Thank you all for your replies and 991.2 suggestion!

To be honest, I fell in love with the 992 and I prefer it over the 991.2, I think I will wait for the Turbo when it comes out next year.

Again, thanks guys. Thumb

I was in a 991.2 Turbo S at the weekend, and it’s a monster. That was very well specc’d and you would have needed more than £155k to buy that new. So, if you want a 992 Turbo S, rather than the Turbo, you may need to extend your budget.

With £155k in your pocket now, you could get into this:


https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201906138977197

Then order a 992 when they are finally launched. Because I imagine the wait will be at least 6 months from ordering, and maybe more like 12. So, you could be 18 months away from a 992 Turbo.

i was asking my local OPC guy (just ordered a new Macan S for the boss) and he told me a good spec 992 Turbos S won't get much change out of 180k!!

It’s truly sad that decent cars for sale like that advert with such pitiful mileage on!

2k in 1 year!? Get a life car buyers, if you’re going to buy it, drive it. If not, leave em for someone that would.

I was looking at a GT3 earlier at OPC Sheffield with less than 500 miles on the clock. It’s pretty depressing.

There should be a penalty clause in the purchase contract that details a minimum mileage per annum, and that if not met, it’s put on a dyno whenever serviced and adds 20k miles each time 😉

There are many options with that budget. A 992 GTS might be an alternative if you can’t reach a 992 Turbo. Or you could of course put down that amount as a deposit and pay the rest off.

Realistically the 992 Turbos are going to have more power and be even faster than the 991's. I'll bet the standard Turbo will have the same or more than the 991.1 Turbo S, with 560bhp+ and the 992 Turbo S having more like 620bhp+

The standard Turbo will be plenty fast enough to obliterate a Carerra (and 99% of the other cars on the road) - so I think that's what the OP should stick to.

The 991 Turbo S is the only car that I've driven where I thought it might have too much power ..... having given it full beans down the slip road and joined the motorway at nearly double the speed limit! wack

Laughing

I do have a golden rule, modern cars to be bought proportionate to use... The more miles you drive, the more justified a nicer car is, as you are spending a lot of time in it. If I were only doing a small local commute, then a cheap / small vehicle... god when I had my RS6 I was doing about 30k miles per annum... (that was a time when emissions didn’t really exist).

Other golden rule... if you want to spend money on nice vehicles and minimal mileage, buy classics and preserve them for the world, occasional use when you get time... my VW and Yamaha appreciating quite nicely at present. And I’m in the market for a nice old Caterham which will only get occasional use.

Each to their own 😉

What if you've got 20 nice cars. Question At my local OPC they had a car brought in by a lady for a service on a covered trailer. It was stunning.
Car:356 Speedster
Mileage: 127m
Not 127k miles......just 127m
She has 3 other 356's along with a bunch of other p cars
