1999 911 cabriolet but with 110,000 miles

Hi Guys,

I wonder if you can help. I have a Lotus Elise, but its time to move on. I have seen a 911 Cabriolet which seems in good condition, but needs a service appartently and has 110,000 miles on the clock. It has service history though. The dealer wants £27,000 for it. It has just standar 17inch alloys and no extras as far as I know.

Is there anything i should be aware of at that milage. Is this a good value car seeing i will want to keep it for about 2 years.

Will appreciate any comments.

Nothing wrong with a high-miler, I suggest. But this one seems expensive - though you don't say which year it is.

Only 17 in wheels (unusual and unattractive); no extras (unusual and unattractive); needs a service (depends on what needs doing but could set you back a grand).

I'd avoid. Bad VFM and difficult to move on. Research carefully, see what prices are like generally, look at the many independents specialising in Porsche - and get a pre-purchase inspection done. Buying the wrong Porsche can be v costly - even more so if the price is too high!

Its a 1999 model. The only thing is, I cant find another 911 (966) for under 30k (looked at autotrader) so is 27k not cheap? even though its a high miler with no service?

certainly isnt cheap enough

theres more and more high miles 996's around and few takers

tread with caution

your money would be safer in a 993 cab for under 30K
