To all that asked:

They Facebook group I sold the car on is called ‘Pre 1996 retro cars and parts for sale’.

130,000 members in it. Always people looking to buy interesting 80’s and 90’s cars.

As I mentioned, I deliberately avoided advertising it on the Porsche groups just because I think there is currently a self-perpetuating myth amongst Porsche people that prices have slid back a little and that cars are taking months to sell. I was also told I would struggle to sell because it was modified.

I personally think that the modified look is what sold it.

Congrats on the sale Tim, no shock you had little difficulty selling it. Anyone would struggle to find Arena Red looking as stunning as yours. thumbsup


Thanks Malcolm!

It’s been a pleasure to own the car and be part of this forum.

Another long term 993 owner moves on.
I had mine 6 and thought that was a long time but 9 yrs is a testament to the 993 and how good it is?

You sticking around on 911uk?
What’s next
All the best Thumb


I’ll still be around!

The Mrs has a Cayenne S, so I’ll be relegated to the odd post in the Cayenne forum from now on!

Next for me? Ferrari 360 or Alfa 4C, but I simply cannot decide which one to buy.

First world problems and all that...


Zingers would steer you towards the 4C in a heart beat and can recommend some good onyx suppliers for the plinth it would live on for most of the year Grin Grin

By that rear wing still looks lovely. Very Happy

You've nailed the look of that car Tim. Someone got a cracking deal there. Thumb

As for your next car, scratch the itch for the dancing donkey. I had the chance of my mate's 360 spyder or my Mk1 GT3 a few years ago. No regrets as the GT3 was meant to be a keeper, but since I ended up selling it anyway I sometimes wish I'd at least owned a Fezza once.

Enjoy the search anyway. Good fun. Thumb

Haven't been on here for a while but always enjoyed reading your posts and seeing pictures of your car. Enjoy the next journey. Well done on selling at a good price.

I am rarely on facebook but have asked to join the group and wil try and sell my BBS LM's.

Cheers

Tom

It has to be a 4C chum. Come on in the water's great although it's a different experience Grin

PS: I have a contact who can source you one if you want to go that way Thumb
