I wasn't bashing 996s, I think they're great cars. Cool

My logic is simply that the 996 and 993 are too different to be comparable, i.e. the values aren't related.



It isnt going to keep me awake at night, Ive owned both and they are both great cars, mine is just faster and better handling

i remain sceptical, i think some of the depreciation i created from our own market (ie. these forums and from our discussions) there is a general message begin sent out to everyone that the 993 is a classic and the 996 is common.



to answer the guys original question :-

the porsche inspection solves everything because it means you'll find out what car you're buying, you could find a low mileage car thats got lots of bills or similarly a high mileage car with no bills.

the 235 check will save you a lot of hassle, if its the wrong car then pay the 235 and move on. If its the right car, then you've had a check over by people that are looking for faults ie. being picky and plus if you go for the warranty you'll be covered should anything bad happen.

Maybe its a bit simplistic, but 911's seem to stop at 10k. Other marques dont do that. Set your target for something nice in the pre 3.2 age and you're still talking 10k or more. ( and thats for a car more than 20 years old) and that also includes RHD/LHD etc etc. 911's definitely do not depreciate at the same rate as other marques as my long list of 4X4 cars will attest to. With 996 and 993 prices converging, the choice is down to what you want from the car. I agree that buyers not overly concerned about 'raw experience' would plum for 996, as at the end of the day, its still a Porsche 911. I'm comfortable, even in LHD form, that my C4S is not depreciating at anything like what I would have seen for RHD XKS, Merc, BMW etc.
