I’m trying to decide between a 930 Turbo vs. 964 RS.

 

Compromise?

Smoosh the 2 together and you get something like this - 3.6 turbo, 6 speed, etc, etc in a 1050kg 930.  Well within your budget.

I was afraid RB was going to sell up, didn’t seem to align with the glowing feedback on the boxster.

As one door closes ...

Do it RSVP911!

It seemed he was more than happy with the Boxster, and it provided different and sufficient thrills to the red cars. So I wasn’t surprised the 965 is now available to buy.

My twopence having owned one until last month for the last 9 years - they look utterly amazing, but drive ok: a touch too heavy, a touch too planted, but when properly sorted - suspension is key - nice, but never nimble.
Beautiful from every angle, truly, and a lovely interior, good seats even for me at over 6ft 4, great noise with the right exhaust (Fabspeed dual outlet), loads of fun when the boost kicks in; still fast even by modern standards.
But the rust! On U.K. roads, it is non-stop: something every 5 years needs attending to and very expensive to run in general - budget at least £4,000 a year unless you do the work yourself, some years it will be £1,500, others £8,000 (the bodywork years, the top end years, the fuch refurb years, the bodywork again, the clutch, suspension geometry etc etc).
After 9 years I was ready to let her go, I just got so fed up with spending on her, and the Porsche tax gets on your tits. I’m not rich enough not to care about the outgoings and I was too scared of its value to do any of the work myself.
So in conclusion: you need to be rich, you need to drive around with a load of mirrors showing you the outside from the inside and ideally you should live in California so you don’t end up with an expensive pile of iron oxide with a Porsche badge stuck on top!

As Ben says (JR), except that any 911 or indeed any classic car will rust, especially if driven in winter on our salt-laden roads! It’s a downside to our climate I’m afraid. Cannot see that a 930 is any more expensive to run than another 911? I preferred driving my Turbo to the lightweight that I had years ago (a ‘72 2.4 S, the one with the wing oil filler and weights behind the front bumper!) ........felt like driving a tuned Beetle! Anyway, like JR, I’ve thrown in the towel just now and sold my Turbo, just have not got the time nor the money to run a classic Porsche anymore, kind of sad really as it has been a big part of my life over the years. Now I have to work my way through my large stash of spares and list everything with a view to selling. On the plus side, looking forward to having more shelf space.......trying to be positive!

David.

Fair enough, everything is for sale at the right price. I would say the same.
