Lovely car. Is that stock RS ride height?
i think it's a tad lower frankly, although Paragon did set it up for fast road use.
Gorgeous car especially in that colour.

Buy only after a thorough inspection. There are so many unknown variables in a cars life even one at 50k miles. Mileage is possibly the worst indicator you can use imo. If its done 20k of those miles sitting in city traffic the engine/gearbox will be in worse shape than a car that has done 100k on open roads. Also, disconnection the speedometer is a very simple job. Caveat emptor.
Indeed. I met a well known Porsche specialist in mainland Europe in 2014 who had recently bought a genuine 40k Km one owner 993 which was a shed. Apparently never ever serviced! And cars of that era were very easy to clock. Three of my five 944/968s had been clocked and that was around 20 years ago when I was buying 10 year old cars with supposedly 70 - 80k miles.

What's the best way to think about prices in this environment? It appears that some dealers are pricing more sensibly than others, but without being able to look at a car, how on earth can you take a view?

A couple of cars I've been looking at have sold whilst in lockdown, so unless the buyer already knew the car, I guess they are just buying based on the information on the website?

Are independent inspections possible right now? Who does these and what's the typical cost?

Apologies for the barage of question. Thanks in advance!

My old 964C4 had a lovely stance, bucked and bounced over bumps a bit though.

Certain aspects of the market seem to be benefiting from the ‘lockdown’.
Nice weather, time of year, captive audience......for many people the ‘proverbial’ hasn’t yet hit the fan, so prices are still relatively strong.
What comes in a few months time is the big question confused

Exactly what I am looking for but the 9 previous owners puts me right off.
Not sure why. Mine has 2 German owners and 3 UK owners. I have had it since 2003 😀

What would put me off is the colour (I never liked red), the 993 Cup 2 Alloys and the price.

That looks very pretty, but typical Hairpin pricing.

Guards is a classic colour and suits the smaller Porsches. But, I'd struggle with the 'off-white' interior.

It's a 1990 964 Carrera 2 so 30 years old. Nine owners in 30 years is an average of 3 years and 4 months per owner which seems quite long to me.

As above the things that would put me off would be:

1) Colour combination - red with cream interior. Red wouldn't be a first choice and black interior goes better.

2) Wrong wheels - should be D90s (or udgraded to later Cup 1s). The mirrors are also wrong for the model year which would have had flag mirrors.

3) Price - top end price.

4) Usability - you pay for low miles and will be scared to drive it.

I bought my old one from Hairpin but circa 30k mile low owner. Red/tan.

I’d say you’d need to pay at least £85,000 today probably circa £100k looking at the Hexagon C2 cab.

They’re not getting cheaper at the moment.

It’s always strange, interior colour choices; I deliberately avoided black as an interior colour, as personally I found it a little claustrophobic.
Good to see we all have a different perspective.

I did a deal for my 964 with Ken from 9 Excellence. I think it was one of his own cars. Id had a new 991 GT3 But unfortunately I only have one arm (left) I found the more I drove the car the more liberties I was taking. I was either going to end up upside down in a ditch or banned. I decided to downgrade to a Cayman GTS. I'd be the first to admit that the Cayman is a fantastic car but it didn't take long for me to realise I'd made a big mistake and although it was good it just didn't feel special after the GT3. I thought long and hard on which way to go and started thinking about my wife's car. She has a Vintage 356 Speedster built on a 1963 VW Beetle floor pan. It's slow the brakes are rubbish and you feel very exposed in it. But for some reason it makes you smile every time you drive it. I found Kens car advertised and drove down from Norfolk to Nine excellence in the Cayman. I whent out in the car with ken and from the off I described the car as an angry version of my wifes speedster. I did a deal with Ken to do a straight swap, My 3 year old Cayman for his 26 year old 911. Quite a few of my mates thought I'd gone mad but 3 years later I don't regret not having the Cayman. I do regret not having the GT3. The 964 is a truly fantastic car. obviously due to my disability I had to have an auto and I'd be the first to admit the auto in the 964's not the best but I don't really care. I've done a bit of a mod of fitting a gear change paddle from an E92. 3 series BMW. The E92 has a paddle that can be pushed as well as pulled giving me the option to gear up and down on the same side. This makes the auto box a little easier to live with. On top of that Ken and his team at 9 Excellence had just completed a full engine rebuild with a few choice upgrades to make it a more reliable unit. Plus the car had not long ago had a windows out respray with a sunroof delete (carbon skin). Since this pic was takes a silver Carrera decal has been put on the lower doors. It may be slower than my daily ride (Audi RS3) But I don't care. I don't think I'll ever sell it.

Good choice. I like the look of the vintage speedster. I own a silver 356A. Wonderful little car. Now the brakes are adjusted properly they are more than powerful enough for the 165 tyres.

Did you write the advert? I like this bit...

The Porsche 911 first broke cover in 1963, morphing over the years from the svelte, elfin Audrey Hepburn of the sportscar world into the current swollen-hipped, muscular Serena Williams-esque ballistic bruiser beloved of city traders, nouveau riche entrepreneurs, and mid-life crisis divorcees.
