If you'd seen the crash photos posted on PH of that Cat D one, you'd have been glad you missed out on buying it.

yeh I saw the pics - In head I set myself of a budget of 24k bid without viewing. I think at that price - I'd be happy to take it to a Porsche specialist and ask them fix any issues to manufacturer spec

main issue for me is finding a Manual S with low mileage.

 

Just throwing it out there - anyone out there considered converting a 987.1 into an electric conversion? I know, I know - but just curious - especially if bore scoring comes into play...

That definitely looks tempting in today's market. The single (presumably two now the garage has it) owner is what makes you more willing to overlook the mileage if the history is there. Nothing as expensive as a cheap Porsche rings in my ears but it's worth checking out.

Yeh would be an interesting deal for sure, but I’m guessing it’ll be significantly down on power after so many miles. Especially when my budget is way higher

If this was in the 22-23k range I’d consider, but price too far apart.

 

987.2 S

 

more I think about it, I think the only thing will tempt me now is a Cayman R under £30k (even if it is Cat) which I know would be a long wait. Or a 987.2 S (with sub 30k Miles) or a high miler in the 20-22k.

 

to be honest I think I’ll end up sticking to BMW m2/M4 - more flexible for my needs and easier entry point price wise.

 

I guess it shows not many people are willing to part with a manual 987.2 - future classic for sure.

The sub £30K Blue R still remains for sale. Have you considered that one?

Yeh I’ve decided the cayman isn’t for me, at current price anyway. Plus cant complain with the added convenience from  BMW, even if it means they don’t feel as special.

 

either an M2 or M4
