Hi all
After a few years being 911less (business/Covid etc) I'm now looking to get back into a 911, specifically a 991. Something I've never come across before is a car (a C4S I'm looking at from a private vendor) with the Police (probably The MET) as a previous owner. I didn't know the cops used them; but I'm up North so perhaps the streets are paved with gold and cop driven 911s down there???
 
Interesting. Any more details :?:

Not yet but I'll post whatever I discover. A few things about the car are not lining up.

Is it the grey one with lots of warranty bits and no MOT history until very recently :?:

The very one I think :thumb:
 
Every day's a schoolday.

A quick google informs me that police cars are exempt from having MOTs or needing to declare info on the gov.uk website.

This clears things up a bit. :wink:

In addition to not having MOT's the Met Police also self insure.
