A new Porsche Centre is opening in Portsmouth. This is great news for me, as Portsmouth is my nearest city – it’s only about 15 miles away. I’ve long thought that the central south coast of England has been poorly served by Porsche. At present, there’s an OPC in Bournemouth and at Mid Sussex (north of Brighton) which leaves a huge swage unprovided for. And when you consider this area includes Portsmouth, Southampton, Winchester and countless smaller towns and villages, not to mention a lot of wealthy people, it makes sense for Porsche to have a presence here. Oh, and […]
It’s a strange business selling Porsches. I took on this 964 Turbo almost a year ago and I thought it was have been snapped up very quickly. Priced at just £25,000 it was one of the cheapest 964 Turbos in the UK yet was far from a dog. The price was low because the car had a highish mileage – 118,000 – and wasn’t in perfect condition. Yet the engine had had extensive work done on (a top end rebuild and more) and the car’s a joy to drive. I took it out at lunchtime to take it for a […]
I am looking for a really good example of a Porsche 996 Carrera 4 or 4S for a customer. Needs to be lowish mileage, great service history and be a genuine car. Colour and specification not too much of a concern. If you’re in the UK and looking to sell such a car, do please get in touch.
Can a standard Porsche 993 Carrera 4 be worth £47,000? That’s double what you’d expect to pay for a reasonable narrow-bodied 993. I’ve just been sent a link to an interesting blog post by a Porsche 993 owner, Simon Das. He claims that the 993 is the car that ‘the Star Wars generation’ wants – guys in their 30s. He puts forward the usual argument for the 993 – rock-solid build quality, everything works, there’s not much to go wrong and so on (although his claim that there’s no ‘computer panel to go wrong’ isn’t quite true – that heater […]
I’ve just had a call from Paul Stephens, a true Porsche enthusiast who creates some amazing 911s under his PS brand. The latest of which is the incredible PS Spyder, which is a clever reinterpretation of the classic 550 Spyder of the 1950s. It’s an extreme Speedster, if you like. Check out Paul’s website for more photos – you won’t be disappointed!
I’ve just collected this Porsche 997 Carrera S and took some photos down at my local harbourside location. The car’s finished in GT Silver Metallic and it’s a striking shade – purer than the usual Arctic Silver and a refreshing change. Don’t get me wrong, I like Arctic but it’s just become a bit too common, so it’s good to see something slightly different. The light today was perfect for it, too – beautiful! 🙂 Click here for full details of this Porsche.
