+ 1 for DOWN
With few exceptions, all mass produced cars depreciate.
They are getting older
There are lots of them
There are now 2 newer versions
They have the open deck engine block
They have an intermediate balance shaft
They have been destroyed on the internet and Porsche did NOTHING to reassure owners!
In years to come, the buying advice on forums will be to opt for the series 2 engine when buying a used 911 Boxster or Cayman.
I don't have an axe to grind and have not had an engine go bang, but the internet noise and the fact the Porsche have radically redesigned the engine means that informed buyers will forever be wary of buying anything fitted with the series 1 water-cooled lump. Unlike previous models, engines are not practically rebuild-able except by a few specialists like Hartech.
If you do an internet search, you would have to be very knowledgeable or plain stupid not to take notice of the world-wide feedback.
A lot of buyers of older Pork believe they want to buy a "keeper" and its hard to accept that no amount of spend on preventative maintenance will guarantee long service life.
