Had my 997.1 GT3 for 6 years, Absolutely love it. But that's me. You definitely need to go and drive a few cars to see what suits you and brings a smile to your face. They are all great cars in there own way.

Good luck with your search.

I don't think a £2k maintenance fund is realistic for a GT3 or a 430. That really won't get much sorted even in the way of servicing, tyres brakes, let alone the many faults that are common to the 997 platform, or the Ferarri ones that are presumably even more expensive.

Thanks, difficulty is getting sellers to allow a drive, so far the discussion has gone something like "lets agree a deal then you can have a confirmation drive".....bit painful. Had even thought about hiring an F430 for a day.....

Am quoting £2k if I had a Porsche factory warranty, thinks that's realistic at the mileage I am thinking of. With a Ferrari the warranty is less comprehensive, so agree could be optimistic. If I did go for an F430 I know I need to accept that I could get a £4/5k bill in year one.
