Manual - Tick
Coupe - Tick
No mention of cat write off - Tick

Sub £25k - Tick (for now)


Rust in all the known spots and over 200k miles - Thumb


Sounds good value, until you pour £15k into getting into good condition Hand

Good buy that if it sells for £25k'ish. Use it as intended and it's never going to shed much cash.

Not keen on the John Major Grey interior or the wear on the carpet mat what

N/S A-pillar looks like quite a lot of rust so will need metalwork.

Could be a good starter and one to use as high miles and more gaps in history file than Swiss cheese will always make it a curate's egg.

I could get it up to showroom standard I reckon for less than £4k discounting AC and any engine issues.

Trim loose on rear screen (nearside lower corner) - needs a new one. £750(?) + aperture work + fitting. So that's both screens out, I reckon. But it would be a great project for someone. The inevitable a/c work will empty the coffers though... thumbsup

24 years old and 200k - it's not going to be showroom, but who cares? It's a car you can use and properly enjoy.

So just out of interest (the car is local to me), if it fetches, say, £30k, roughly how much would one of these typically need spending on to get it into "excellent" condition?
Perhaps that's impossible to say, I don't know.
And what might it then be worth assuming that it's then in really good, tip-top nick?

If you are paying someone else to work on your vehicle then it will always be more cost effective to buy a tidy car initially.

Very true. Easy t sink £10k+ into one of these. That siad you thne get a car that is sorted to your standard rather than .one that's supposed 'excellent' but isnt.

Mine has had at least £45k spent on it since May/June 2016 when I bought it. Perhaps closer to £50k if I could be bothered to add it all up (I don’t want to). Sorting out the suspension, getting the A/C to work, little bits of paint, a clutch, servicing, changing the gearbox oil, replacing the speakers, putting in a Porsche Classic Radio Nav, fixing cracked fog lenses, putting ambers back on, that damn reflector at the back that loses its lustre, everything from small stuff like a new set of Porsche mats or that one piece leather gear knob thing to an engine rebuild. That’s a car with 60k less on it and a well documented FSH. With the knowledge I have of these cars now I would literately wee my pants if I were to consider buying that one on eBay.

That's just snuffed out any desire for an old school 911

I'm not so sure how genuine that advert is. The car looks identical to a oood member from here. The interior is identical at least and there can`t be many around with that colour combination and centre console. not to mention the door sills and black paint.

I think someone bottled it when they worked out the numbers. The second bidder withdrew his £25,001 bid Floor

Makes the 996 even with all their baggage look even better value....(I know, they are just not a 993)
