    All of the ones you posted seem like great examples (maybe NZ excluded due to full respect with so few k’s On the clock) only thing missing is they need to sharpen their pencils on the pricing. $120k for low k’s manual 996 turbo is the benchmark. Will be interesting to see if they sit for a while.

    What did you do to your Porsche today ???

    Was doing some interior refresh work a few weeks back, it has come up nicely, really happy with the how the square weave carpets came up.
  3. This sold quick! Good as with good photos
  4. Pretty sure this was at PCM 2017/2018, can't imagine there are too many 4S targas with a red interior kicking around. It was priced around $150ish then.

    911 'Coupe' wanted

    Chocolate exterior, brown interior. If it doesn't have mechanical gremlins it's a pretty good buy! Shannons report says it has had accident repair damage though, which would explain the price.

    UK import which isn't mentioned in the ad.

    Tyre Blackener

    Second that, their entire range is great!
  8. Thanks for the opinions everyone, good to have a think about options. As always i'll probably get paralysis by analysis and will stay put with that I have got!
  9. Tyre kickers, advice sought.... What are perceptions on current values and perceived future values between: - 1981 911SC Targa in excellent condition, minor restoration work done compared to - 996 turbo manual low k's, good condition Pricing seems comparable, where do peoples crystal balls see these two items heading? I'm obviously not in it to make a $ but do like to know that I purchased well. As in buying a 991 Carrera S 2 years ago would leave me feeling like I did my dough unnecessarily as they seem to be depreciating hard.
  10. Why is everyone so shit scared of bad mouthing Lorbek, I have a few friends who have had poor experiences and am happy to say the joint leaves me with uneasy feelings. Also seeing the guy who runs it down in Portsea being slimy AF doesn't enhance my perception of him or his dealership.

    I’m thinking a 996 turbo manual for roughly $100k with a mezger engine is one of the best value Porsche buys at the moment. The G Series air cooled cars have blown out in price and are no longer a bargain. The 996 is all that is left. The one above looks great!

    PCM....Thumbs up...

    PCM have always been great to deal with, I get my car serviced there and enjoy dropping in to scope out the showroom. When replacing the rubbers on my 911SC Targa they even went so far as recommending a body shop that could do a more cost effective job than their own service center. I have found them to be focused on good customer outcomes as opposed to just drumming up as much servicing business as possible.

    I'm a big fan of any interior colour aside from black. The k's seem pretty reasonable though for it's age...Although i'm coming from a 911SC which has a gazillion k's on it! 😁

    Price seems reasonable on this and has been for sale for aaaaaaages, am sure there is a reason? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-2002/SSE-AD-4892423/?Cr=2
