looks in good nick, but high kms

what sort  of things start to break down at 167000kms and what sort of repair costs would one be looking at?

Gone already!

I wouldn't worry about the km provided everything is up to date and it drives fine.  Where it becomes a real pain is when the deferred maintenance has been allowed to build up and there are lots of odd jobs to be done.  Unaddressed oil leaks is a classic example.  These cars are robust and reasonably simple and if in good condition now, will likely be that way for a long time yet.

Also remember you are unlikely to drive these daily so it will be possibly 10years until you get to 200,000km.

 

Do miss my old 993 Tip.

@911virginThe 993 as a whole is a very well built motorcar, probably the best one that Porsche built this comment has nothing to do with trends fads etc....

The engine as Peter has mentioned is very well resolved and if it is maintained to spec will reward with many 100's of 1,000's of kms with out requiring any major work.

I have a 1994 C2 manual that has done a genuine 266,000kms (10k a year avg) that has never had the engine cracked top or bottom it has just been maintained very well keeping things in tip top shape as required which to be honest doesn't take much on these cars. A recent comp test shows all numbers well within parameters so again don't be deterred by kms. I have many 993 owning friends that have all done in excess of 200,000kms all well looked after cars and all still go magnificently.

A PPI by a trusted experienced Porsche mechanic will serve you well.  An older Porsche can cost a lot of money to bring up to spec - History, both service and owner is the key.

I have had lots of 911's and one of these set up well is an absolute treat, fast enough for the road handles like a modern car (significant compared to previous models)

The other great thing about getting a car with higher Kms is that you will drive them

I havent been following the market recently.

The market is fairly dry of C2 Manuals. Anyone have a price hisotry on how much they previously went for based on carsale stats?

Over the last 12 months they seem to have fluctuated around 145-165 depending on condition however very few have been for sale. 

According to the follow data (i have not fact checked this) only 229 manual C2's came to Australia between 1994-1997

No manual coupes on the market nor turbos. Never seen anything like this before.

A low km C2S went for low 200s at the start of this year. Last last year I believe there were 2 x variorams at 140-150k. ~100kms from memory. Both gone now.

It is pretty hard to have FOMO when there is nothing around to miss out on. Are 993 C2 manuals the next big thing?
