1999 Porsche 996 Carrera 4

PostPosted: Sun Feb 20, 2011 10:04 pm    Post subject: GTS - how many are there around? Reply with quote

Dropped into OPC Aberdeen last week and they had 4 sitting around looking for owners, only 1 was a cancelled order. Got me wondering how many are out there? Must be a good deal out there for somebody in the market. Anyone got any ideas how many are sitting around? OPC used car locator shows a couple of Cabs but nothing else ...

I have the impression of Porsche neediness on this one. I had a go in one a couple of weeks ago at Silverstone and had a salesman on the phone both before and several times after the drive trying to persuade me into a road test drive as well. Doesn't exactly smack of rarity to me.

What spec did you go for? I really like the thought of a red PDK with aerokit, lowered suspension and sports seats.

Sounds good - I'd certainly go for PDK. But I wouldn't have the centre lock wheels - sound like too much of a faff! Don't think they offer the Aerokit - otherwise you could make a passable GT3!

I too would not go for centre lock as the fitting of winter tyres will mean another set of very expensive rims me thinks nooo

Id be more pissed off in having to go to an OPC everytime you needed a tyre fitted or have the independants got the tools now?

They do offer the Aero-kit on this model, so yes you could have a passable GT3!

The real question is, do I want to spunk the best part of £80k through the Porsche Depreciator? I think we both know the answer to that one! Hand

Ordered mine. I knew they would be prepared to do a deal with the 998 on the way. I worked out the cost of a low spec car and they very much wanted me to take an existing car instead of placing a new order on the factory. As this was pre ordered it had a very high spec which I insisted I did not want and eventually got the extras for free. £10K!!!!

Sports Chrono, extended nav, leather, heated seats, telephone module, audio interface, park assist, metallic,cruise control, multi function wheel. all free

plus 2 K uplift on my 997 trade in.

They are scared of having stock left so go in now before they run out of pre built cars.

Is it a PDK?

If so, keep the mileage sensible and I'll give you £30k cash in 2016.

No its manual I still have working muscles in my left arm. I do prefer manual although I could be swayed but all the reports from the "informed" people say manual is still best.



I'll run it in for you then!!!
