They have dropped the price by £10 k in the last couple of months.
Actually it is now cheaper then the turbo I bought which was a 2011 reg with similar mileage.

Is it just the number of owners which puts everyone off. Just curious.

2011 Porsche 997 Turbo S

I don’t think it is the number of owners ....

Imo it’s the classic Coupe v Cab scenario ......

In OPC Glasgow stock there is a 997 turbo coupe as well at similar money .....( on a set of classic wheels to boot!)

Just select both and flick between them ......the coupe is what a turbo should be ... the beauty of the 997 coupe lines is there , plain to see.......classic in the waiting ....

I know where my £70k would be spent .....

Totally agree with regards to the beauty of the coupe.The cab actually looks ugly from the rear with the roof up.

However there is no feeling which matches the roof down in a turbo cab especially if the exhaust has been changed as well.

I know with car like this, especially convertibles, a lot of people only have them for the summer, just to tick the box, then sell on, but even so, thats a lot of owners. The new owner will be the 8th owner in just 6 years!

For me personally, that alone would put me off. On my car, for example, im the 3rd owner in 10 years.

Exactly - keep it for the summer, skimp on the maintenance, rag it and flog it on....

I guess only reassurance is that its an OPC car so they will have done any work and stuck a warranty on it, but feel for whoever buys it when it comes time for them to sell it.
