PostPosted: Mon Feb 19, 2018 6:54 pm    Post subject: One of them has to go... Reply with quote

Evening all. It's been a while since I posted on here as a lot has been happening in the world of Lungauer, the upshot of which is I think it's time to let one of my 911s go. Question is which one?

The reason for posting on this section is I think it will be the 964, rather than the 997 GTS. Choosing either one is like choosing between your favourite dogs - for all the reasons I am sure you understand. What would your advice be? For context they are both rear wheel drive manual coupes. The 964 has had a glass out respray and set up by Centre Gravity at RS +5mm with PSS10s, Superflex PU bushes and a beautiful set of 17" Fuchs. I mention this only because in handling terms it's about as good as a 964 Carrera 2 gets, which otherwise could be something of a demerit against the GTS. Worth bearing in mind too that the 997 GTS2 manual is the rarer car of the two.

Thanks in advance if you have time to venture your thoughts.

Having asked in the 964 section i may suppose we perhaps could be biased Very Happy

On a constructive note; it will depend ultimately if you want to be driving a modern more refined car or an older rawer car I'd say. Both have their pros and cons....

Then there's the finances to consider; what you need versus their forecasted future values...

Personally...

I'd keep the 964 Surprised

Surely everyone on here is entirely objective on the subject of their favourite marque of car!

You'd better post a couple of pics of the cars as so that we can appreciate the terms of which this challenge entails Very Happy

964 C2 will shift quickly if it's priced right and sorted as you say. Not many good C2 around at present.

Posting the photos has made it much easier. Ex 964 owner here, so has to be the 964.

I have a foot in both camps here. I love my Cayman, its a hoot....
However, the aircooled would always win out in the Chief residence.
This is down to practicality I guess, but the amount of times you will see a 964 and say out loud "I used to have one of them" will make you question your decision Grin

Not my lift or garage I'm afraid. The pics were taken at Refined Detail in Sussex - whom I can heartily recommend by the way.

Well neither are regularly used (too seldom in fact) and are certainly fair weather only (though the GTS doesn't really need the mollycoddling it gets). However if I had to pick one for a long euro hoon it would be the 997. It's done far less mileage (25k vs 86k) and is more comfortable.

It's the 964 that gets the comments when out and about though and she can certainly lift her skirts and fly when she wants to. Decisions decisions!

Could I refer 997ers to my thread on the 964 forum relating to a genuine dilemma I face. I've had some opinions from the 964 collective but what would value a different perspective if you felt you had time to offer one. This is also 997 related!

Thread's called 'One of them has to go'.

That won't help my decision making! Question

It's getting almost to the point of eeny meeny miney mo. They both have such valuable qualities. I've had a fair offer from a well known dealer for the 964 but have a dreadful feeling that I'd regret it. Arghh!
