For what it is worth! Did you buy the car for profit or pleasure?

For the past 30 years i have lusted after a 911 and i was in a fortunate position to buy my 930 at an affordable price a couple of years ago and now i have doubled my money. Would i sell her? Not a hope in hell; because the memories and the enjoyment of the drive are beyond what money can buy.

Wrap her in cotton wool? Why? It's a car it can be repaired.

The car was built for a reason' to be driven not put in a museum

Short term gain long term loss. My only issue is that you can not borrow on the equity which you can on real-estate

Goo point Sleeper - mine is now immaculate after an intensive session at SVP and I'm busy getting it covered in road rash again - can't wait until the shark fins are peppered with holes!

I like your attitude. Thats the best way you can enjoy your car and talk about it in terms of pure investment (not only the monetary type but also the memories type) :)

Well guys, I still own my 930 and I am so pleased that I decided to retain.

 

I often look at asking prices and have to pinch myself, but do any really sell for £100K +

 

My only concern is that I am retiring in a few weeks time, and although my pension is really generous, I do concern myself over a really huge repair bill if something breaks.

 

meanwhile I have just a couple of miles left in my annual 200 allowance !!!

Does seem a shame not to use a nice car like that , I am guessing you bought for a good price a while back so you have a big profit anyway so I would use it more and enjoy you still make lots when you sell just fractionally less but its in essence free money .Banks will soon be offering equity release schemes on 911'S at this rate .

Beautiful car Kevin but 200 miles a year will give you a bigger bill than 2000 miles a year won't it; they like being driven?

Mileage is less important these days - good cars are scarce and that's what counts, not the miles.

What Jim says. Use it or sell it.

Maybe he just enjoys having it, and taking it for 'token' drives? I love my old Ducati and will not sell until hell freezes over (or I need the cash). I have done 0 miles in 2 yrs and I doubt I'll get out on it any time soon.

 

People buy and have stuff for different reasons.

Well guys, and interesting spread of very valuable opinions.

 

It is quite simple, I have owned the car since one didn't have to pay very much at all for a 930, and I love driving it, but have a TR6 show winner also which just seems to fit my leisure driving needs so much better.

 

Also I did drive her down to Angouleme a few years ago and broke down on the auto route, Mrs Kevin lost interest in the car after standing on a cold road side for 6 hours waiting for deppenage to arrive !!! but that's another story !!!

 

Seriously she will be used when ever I need to and with complete disregard for the 200 miles average she has done during my ownership.

It because we are all jealous really coveting your car

 

But throw a TR6 in and that's just showing off ;-)

 

Any pics to wet our TR6 appetite

I know of a 77 turbo going through a nuts and bolts full resto by a well known specialist - if its of interest let me know and I will put you in touch with the owner - car is a few weeks away from completion.

 

BTW US market is playing catch up with european market so outlook is a bit different.
