996 or 997.1?

If one of the above that’s very bad luck if you had an in depth inspection. I feel your pain!

At the price point or cars being discussed here (£50 - £80k) it’s not really applicable though.

996 c4s. 65k miles. Really let down by the "premium" inspection firm...who took no responsibility...hard lesson learnt.

Obviously you pays your money etc...but £80k gets you into....Mclaren 12c, 997.2 Turbo S, F430, Cayman GT4, 996 GT3, 991.1 GTS, 991.2 Carrera T....etc etc.
I've got a right old bonk on right now for a 991.1 GTS. Been looking at them on AT almost daily for months laugh.

£80k of my hard earned would be going there.

Those last NA 3.8 991 GTS's look like much better value.....but then again the 991.1 turbo is very similar money...decisions decisions

GTS's are now mental money.

20k mile manual, £79k. Probably what, £25-30k more than the equivalent 997.2 Carrera S? Great cars but not £80k great.

Deposit taken. I sold mine a few weeks ago which sold for £80k inside a week through a dealer.

They’re very good cars but I think at this level they’re very strong money but so is everything else.

I'm close to putting mine up, manual, <9k miles, blah as values are so good and I can look at something else when I'm ready, 911 Virgin, Ashgoods etc are moving them on for mid-high 70s regularly, whether value or not, someone is paying the prices

Yes. As good as they might be I would still prefer a GT4 to a 997.2 GTS for the same money.

At that level of money it’s not a car you keep because of the 4 seats anyways. No brainer to sell here IMHO.

And at that money I would buy a CSL if anything.

Yes at £80k there is a lot of choice wether it’s a 911 perhaps the 991.2 flavour or a GT4/Spyder or even something older with change. If you want a coupe and 2seats 987.2S caymans look good value at under £30k!

I bought it for the rear seats but the kids just don't like being in the back that much, the debate is, to go 'big' ( like FF big) or go to 2 seats, which could be GT3 991 or GT4 Cayman - or even the well liked but visually low key 4.0 GTS Boxster/Cayman - I've driven CSLs alot and like them but in the same way people can't see a 997GTS as an 80k car, I can't see a CSL as an 80k car either smile
