Here’s a fresh batch of photographs of the new Porsche 911 (991). The more I look at this car, the more I like it. It’s a fresh take on the classic Porsche 911 shape – larger, sleeker and lower. The design has moved away from the compact sports car of old to a more supercar style machine. It’s good but is it still a 911? We won’t know until we’ve had a chance to drive it. I suspect we won’t be disappointed!
I’ve just sold a lovely Arctic Silver Porsche 996, one of the later 3.6-litre facelift cars. With just 48,000 miles on the clock, it was a rare example. Typically, I didn’t just have one person wanting to buy it, but four – plus my wife! So, this one will soon be going off to its new owner, once it’s been treated to a final valet, and I’m now looking for more similar Porsche 996s for customers (and one wife!). If you need to sell your Porsche 996, then do please get in touch. 996s are great-value Porsches at the moment […]
Some people get very sniffy about Porsche 911s that have modified, arguing that they should remain how they were when they left the factory. Well, that’s a fair point and there is something nice about a super-original Porsche, especially if it’s a rare model. However, I see nothing wrong with modifying relatively common and low-value Porsches. Here’s a case in point. It’s based on a 911SC – a great car but hardly a rarity – and has been lovingly turned into a convincing (from the outside at least) 964 Carrera 3.8RS lookalike. Now, the genuine RS is one of my […]
Selling Porsches can be a strange business. Usually, a car comes into stock, a buyer comes along, a deal is done, and the car goes away, with a smiling new owner behind the wheel. However, for some strange reason, things have not been quite so simple with this super-rare 1988 911 Turbo Targa. It’s a lovely car – low mileage in super condition – and not surprisingly has generated a lot of interest, from the UK and overseas. I thought I’d sold the car some time ago to a gentleman from London who, at the time, was in the USA, […]
I’m pleased to have a lovely Porsche 996 Carrera in stock. Being a 2002 model, it’s got the Turbo-style headlamps and more powerful 3.6-litre engine. Many 996s of this age are getting scruffy and neglected but not this one. Having covered only 48,000 miles, it’s in lovely condition inside and out. However, when I took it on, it wasn’t perfect. The rear main seal (RMS) was leaking – but then most do at some point – so that had to be rectified. It’s a £10 part but to change it means dropping the gearbox and, to ensure the new seal […]
