    Very nice & great investment. My '86 911 turbo has quadrupled in value last 20 years and I get to drive it now and again. :)

    Thanks for the replies everyone it's good to get some feedback and get an idea of what people think with price etc. I will say that my friend is in incredibly anal about his vehicles being perfect. So if anyone is interest it would be worth a visit to look at the car, he's based nr Whitchurch in Shrophire.

    Out of interest what is the mpg and how much does it cost to insure?

    The latter, in particular, is at least as much to do with the driver and their habits/circumstances as the car. Probably best to explore through an insurance broker?

    If you have to ask Paul... ;)

    Dunno about the insurance, but it must be in the 20 mpg range?

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    There are too many variables for insurance but on fuel consumption, in my manual, I used to average around 20-22MPG, less in city traffic, much less driven enthusiastically, or on a long run, high 20s-low 30s.

    PS, the about example is beautiful, I’m lost on values now but that’s a nice car!

    Don’t worry about insurance and petrol costs because it’s the cost of servicing that will scare the bejeezuz out of you.

    I don’t think I did enough miles to really find that out, things like brakes and tyres are quite expensive (actually, this one has carbon ceramics so yeah, expensive)... but they don’t need doing terribly often unless you’re regularly tracking it, or driving like you’re tracking it. A good and honest independent will look after things like oil and filters for very reasonable money, not scary at all... unscheduled maintenance could really hurt, but they aren’t particularly unreliable.

    I'd hope you'd get 30 mpg on a run - my old 6.0 V8 (forgive me Greta) gave 35mpg on the motorway, but some of that was thanks to an astronomically long sixth gear!

    I somehow doubt this is the place where most potential Porsche buyers will be looking. There are some more obvious ones specialising in car sales with tens of thousands of cars for sale, including, no doubt, many Porsche 911s of various types, ages and prices.

    I didn’t do that many long runs in it to get a good idea, I also once I get under 1/4 of a tank, I just fill my cars up and don’t really think about what fuel I’m using on a given journey... but I got around 35 between Cannock and Penrith. It wasn’t much thirstier than my Golf GTI on the whole to be honest.

    All this talk of MPG and brake discs? Just do what the OP’s mate has done - buy a car, drive it rarely, service it less and hope to make your money back!

    True, but i put it here on the off chance that someone might be interested. I was looking for a car and it took me over 18 months to find one that matched my expectations ie, perfection. If someone had posted one on here it would have saved me a lot of time and effort, i appreciate all the feedback from everyone.

    Yep, that’s what I did, fuel costs weren’t bad at all really, it didn’t sting me hard on servicing costs either... sold it for more than it cost me too so even when factoring service costs in, I profited from owning it... not what I bought it for though, that was just luck!
