993 turbo
997 GT3
996 turbo S
996 GT3RS

Or maybe Nutley are the new Bramley ?

No, nono they are looking for someone to pay a huge premium just for the low miles...

Were there really only 251 of these? Very Rare!

I heard there were more c4s than c2s.

Edit:

But yeah it isn't worth that money IMO.

I recognise this car from somewhere. Is it the one that was discussed a few years ago that had a 5 year hole in its history or something?

In any case, 60k for a 993 2S is a lot of money. Worth it? Well, it could be unique, so if someone really wants it?

Insane amount of money for that

As bad as the NB C4 theyve got up for 50k!

Nice low miles cars, but not particularly special

The tyres are apparently 9 years old on that one if you care to study the pics carefully. That'll handle well then.

Look how clean it is inside! Not many around in this condition, mine is low miles 21k on the clock, C4s, but not this claen, especially the carpets...£10,000-£15000 premium for mint over one like mine, not sure, but if I had money to burn maybe I would swap? More C2S than C4S 251 vs 181 c4s!

You think yours is worth 45k?

Everyones perception of what these are worth is subjective, to me, no its not worth it, and i think they will struggle to sell at that level, but it only takes one person.

Nice - i love it, also like these wheels, makes it look lower.

But pricey...

what a lovely lovely car. Mine is identical. 80k miles though. It does not look much different from those in the pics. Not sure what is the point of buying a 18k miles car for this money. You would feel awfull driving it (depreciation linked to miles adding up).

Been offered £43k recently, prices for low milers are firmer! Will not sell for any money (within reason) as waited so long to find the right one!

Total load of bollax.
Massive rip off for a relatively boring looking car in my opinion.

You think the 993 is boring, how dare you insult my beautiful 911! Prettiest Porsche ever, after the 356, or perhaps 2.7S, but anyway how dare you!

And by the way, GT wings look like they belong on a Dyson hoover! Or some fast and furious movie, so there!

Plus, all the value is perceived to be in the low mileage, so use it and lose it. Or just put it in a garage, clean it once a week and tell everyone how your car is bucking the depreciation curve, whilst forgetting to tell them your scared to use it....what a waste

Agree that they must be used, but not abused, try to do a few thousand every summer in mine, but lock away for winter!

Best not use it then.

You see i would have sold and bought a higher mile one pocketing 10k. But thats just me. Different folks different strokes.
