Why change? 991 is ‘just another Porsche’ that you would have to start modifying to make it an interesting ownership proposition. It is too close to the 997. Keep going with the boxer mods.


Sort of agree Grin But the 991 isnt a 997! The boxster 981 is pretty amazing lets be honest, but it's not a 911... Hence why you're thinking what you're thinking Dont know

991.1 Targa GTS, plenty of power even with the crazy targa roof, which makes for a proper GT convertible with room for 4, and you keep the amazing 981 soundtrack. The 991 sounds epic, with the roof off? can only be double epic. Rumour has it they are even available in yellow, and Clarkson cant be wrong Wink

Must say the Targa GTS is growing on me. Looks mint.... But 85k for a good un... Question Where's the calculator? Or 991 GT3? Jesus.... Smile

I love the 991.1 Targa. It was the only car turning my head when I got the 997.2 from the OPC but I couldn't afford it back then: it was brand new, not yet depreciated, and beyond my means.

OK gents this new Boxster has really thrown a spanner in the works for me. I have been on the hotline with Porsche this morning and they can't give me much info about delivery dates etc.

But I am really tempted to put down a deposit, as my plan which I was going to keep secret and then post on here was to take my car and put a 3.8 litre engine in it. Well here is a 4.0 already done by Porsche.

I have to say the performance figures are a little pathetic for a 4.0 engine. They are quoting 4.5 seconds to 60 and 400ps. That's the same as the current car. But with the PDK it will be more like 4 seconds. And then after I fit an exhaust it will sound glorious!

What to do?

Very nice! Presumably this could easily be tuned to be so much more? (AKA Carrera T)

The 981, IMHO, is one of the best cars Porsche have ever produced. Real value for money and that PSE coupled with PDK.....Superb.
I'd stay put. Thumb

Ahh yes! I've only just read about that.
Well done and congratulations Thumb
I'd love to see that in the flesh one day. I'm not too far from OPC Wilmslow.
