If your 997.2 C2S is one with a good/desirable spec I’d go for an agreed value policy...actually I would come what may. Difference between trade and what you can replace your car for is probably more than £5k.

I use both Hiscox and Zurich Private Client...both do agreed value and they don’t have mileage limits. Hiscox don’t do track day cover but are cheaper for the cars we “daily” that’s why the cover is split... I use a broker called Turner Rawlinson who someone on here recommended, I’ve found them to be excellent.

No affiliation !
Thank you!! Very useful.. I’ll give them a go! I wasn’t planning to do a track day but might be tempted at some point.

Hi Cheib - feedback from the broker is that agreed value policies are only for 4 car fleets with 75k value.. so I couldn’t explore that option more. Will see if they are good for ‘market value’

We’ve just bought a 911 992 S Cabriolet - very excited for collecting it on Wednesday.

Our other car is with Admiral - and they look competitive on the 911 - but we have a worry. Porsche Original Parts and Porsche Workshops.

Does anybody have any experience with Admiral insurance when it comes to repairs? ...do they allow repairs to be carried out by the Porsche Dealer (who will no doubt use external body shops themselves, but that’s not the point....) or do they go with “approved repairer network” this ensuring it would end up in a non specialists shop?

Hoping that the answer is that Admiral recognise the specialist nature of certain cars, and authorise repairs appropriately. Anyone have experience either way - love to hear...

Hi Matt, I crunched the front of my 997 into a concrete post (long story frown) I contacted my insurance and said wanted it to go to repairer X for arguments sake. They agreed but it was going to cost me about 20% on top of the cost so I let it go to their recommended repairer... who I must say did a fantastic job, apart from the new front number plate advertised their body repair shop. No hiding the fact I’d bumped it then. My point is I wouldn’t worry, they don’t just use anyone. The insurance company needs the work to be done right.

I called Mannings 3 weeks ago for a quote to insure my 991.1 GT3RS......
£848 including unlimited track days.
When I phoned them back 2 days ago in order to proceed the price was now £1150.
Also it materialised that whilst on track the excess was 10% of the car’s value.

Maybe the wording varies by policy/ underwriter but my Mannings renewal from last week has a 15% excess for track days and a 125k limit on claims. Not an issue for me as I don’t track the car - in fact they now allow you to opt out of this element which for me brings the cost back to last year. Seems from other forums that the underwriter has increased premiums significantly.

I cannot find any car insurance provider who would use genuine (Porsche approved) parts.
I've looked at several so far - all terms conditions indicate they use non manufacturer approved (even recycled with one provider) parts.

Is there any normal insurer who understand that fitting a non manufacturer approved part invalidates manufacturer warranty?

I’ve used POrsche Insurance for years, now run by Carbon Insurance Brokers.

They guarantee genuine parts.

Have you tried Locktons?
