    We've decided to stick, not convinced by the electric versions yet and loving the little Macan now we need a couple of child seats.

    I think that is where we got to. I do fancy another Macan, the GTS is looking nice. (Taycan is too big for my garage)

    GTS spec looks pretty much like the old Turbo PP which is a good combination.

    We get near 30 mpg on a boring drive so not too bad on fuel either. Might be the last car i ever buy if i can keep mileage down.

    we had the Turbo MAcan before the 911 - just had to scratch that 911 itch, but i think we might be ready soon for another Macan

    The GT4 RS does look great. You'd really need access to a track to stretch it's legs though and it'll be such a coverted model you'd wonder how many will see a track. Most will be mollycoddled in garages I suspect which is a shame.

    997.1 is good value but only because of the known engine issues that affect a few.

    Good ones aren’t cheap though. I ended up getting a 997.1 C2S back in August from a specialist. Didn’t fancy the risk of buying private but TBH, some private sellers were asking as much so a no brainier to play it safe and buy through a dealer. Still getting used to it but very happy so far. :)

    Yes understand it has a known bore issue. Mate had one for 9 years, bought it for £26k & just sold it for £22k, not a bad bit of fun. I would only buy from a respectable specialist. £30k gets you a really good one from what I’ve seen.

    Odd colour scheme, although it sort of makes sense in the night shots, and it's got that crashed into a Halfords vibe going on.

    Still would though.

    At the moment, as far as 997.1's are concerned, £30k gets you a tiptronic cab which are as popular as a scorpion in a lucky dip not least for the fact that tips are more prone to bore scoring.

    ...or a leggy manual.

    I should know. I want a 911 and my budget is £30k...

    I've noticed after the Spring/Summer boom even 997.1S manual values have softened slightly.

    Woodface pfm Member These generally have a good selection, the yellow one is a touch above budget but really good spec

    Amazing how they keep the value although our old 996 has been a cheap car to own, touching wood!

    Keeping up with servicing is vital and avoid thin oil.

    I managed to treat myself to a 997.2 Carrera 2 Black Edition almost a year ago, I had been looking for a long time as I approached early retirement.
    The 3.6 DFI engine in this generation of 2wd 911 has low enough emissions to fall into the £340 per year car tax band.
    With the introduction of the 991 models, emissions had been further improved so that the 3.8 engine also falls into the same band.
    My experience as far as value is concerned over the past twelve months, ownership has proved better than leaving the money in the bank
    so in effect free smiles all the way.

    That's really nice and Speed Yellow is rare.
