It can be a bit confusing as there is Redline Specialist cars in Knaresborough who always have an impressive stock of used cars, including many in the ‘super’ bracket. I have always found them most helpful and professional with a good reputation. There is also Redline racing in Thornaby, which is the local Indy of choice in Teesside, not least because you take your car there and get to spend time looking round their race preparation workshop. I do not think the two businesses are connected.

There are some good people to deal with in Yorkshire, as there are elsewhere.

Eeeeee by 'eck lad! There's trouble at'mill. A flare-rod's gone owt o'skew on't treddle!

Speaking as a native Yorkshireman, i'll say there are good and bad everywhere. If you go into the marketplace expecting 9/10 to be scandalous con-men then you won't go far wrong. That goes for whether you're looking in London, Essex, Yorkshire, Glasgow etc.

Redline Racing in Thornaby has no connection to Redline in Yorkshire. I'd beg to differ on them being the Indy of choice in this neck of the woods though. I find Nelson's in Stockton better.

Just my 2p.

As others have said the larger the dealership the more cherished their reputation is guarded, mind you with a Turbo there's not a huge amount that goes wrong with them, especially if they've been regularly serviced.

I looked at a very similar car last year before I bought mine, I don't 'think' it's the same car but not sure. As it's not on their web site I can't see what price they're asking for it but I would have guessed it's not far off £80k?

As it's an 'S' it'll have PCCB's so if your getting a warranty make sure it includes them as they're rather expensive if they're cracked, very rare that they are but well worth ensuring that they're not.

Another dealer near Redline is GC Motors on the outskirts of Harrogate, they had two turbo's in and I see one is still there, the Grey one.

Another thing is check the MOT history on the DVLA site, I just tried to and the number wouldn't come up for some reason, strange!

It could just be that it's only just returned to its original Reg' No. Sometimes if a cars been MOT'd previous on a private plate it takes a while for the DVLA system to catch up.

Hi,

They are connected, it's the same company although the racing arm operates from Thornaby and only offers service/maintenance facilities for Porsche cars.

Cheers,
Paul

I was told differently a few years ago. They were business partners when the company was set up, however split up years later and went their own ways.

Which car are you considering or have agreed to purchase Question

It’s 997 turbo s 2010
33k on the clock.
Full Porsche Service history (4sevices)
There’s no Porsche warranty to transfer so will definitely check out what they are offering warranty wise.
On paper the only thing letting it down is the fact it has had six owners.
I know this shouldn’t be an issue as long as it’s been cared for by all of these owners!
£78k is that about the right kind of money?


Good price for a 33k car

It’s just come off a private plate.
I’ve checked the old mots out on the DVLA website using the old plate and it all seems good.
The warranty that redline offer (free of charge) is limited to £500 like previously posted. So at least the cup holder will be covered😩There are other warranty options that they offer that they say are better value than the official Porsche warranty. ? I will have to see what they have to say tomorrow.
Hopefully it’s all good and by this time tomorrow it will be sitting in my garage!!
Thanks again for everyone’s posts.

Regardless of any warranty they offer they will be liable for any major issues for 6 months anyway so I'd keep my fingers crossed for 90 days and then, assuming it's a standard car, put a Porsche Warranty on it.

Congratulations! I looked at that car a few weeks ago and thought it was good for the money Thumb nothing wrong with redline I’ve bought from them, I wanted an independent check and they had no problem in sending the car to my preferred Indy Strasse. More pics needed! thumbsup

Nice looking car. Six owners on something which is very much likely to be a low-mileage, second (or third) car is not unusual at that age/mileage and nothing to be concerned about if the rest of the history looks good.

I can only second the advice about the dealer to be avoided.
