Greetings all and thanks in advance: I'm in the midst of shopping for my first Porsche, and decided on the 997.1 as a budding enthusiast. Im looking to get a 2005-2008 Carrera, preferably the 3.8, but I wouldn't cry if I got the 3.6. It's not an "if" I get it, but "when". First, I need help on pricing. I've completed detailed research on Edmunds, MotorTrend, NADA, Clearbook, and Kelley Blue Book, and eBay "completed sales " pricing, making certain to understand the differences in each (asking vs. final sales price, condition, etc.). If I'm offering cash, I figure its reasonable to get something with less than 50k miles for $35k out the door. If I get a warranty, tack 2 grand on that. Am i on planet Earth because all the pricing books say yes (Edmunds has Carrera at $32k and Carrera S at $34k), but dealer told me I was smoking crack when I said that. He said Porsche people always pay over (50k for Edmunds 35k car), because youre paying for the experience. I walked out after he said that, but want to double check. What did you all pay? Need some real life final sale prices if you don't mind sharing. Second, I've seen posts on PPIs. How do I find an independent mechanic for this; extra helpful for DC area recs. What maintenance should I expect in the first year. I looked at the Porsche recommended intervals and used AutoMD for quotes. What is true cost for oil change, spark plugs, brake fluid, etc. I want to keep this car for 10+ years....not planning on reselling. Third: I bought the 5th Ed. Batchelor and Leffingwell Porsche Buyers Guide and read the 996 & 997 sections. Anything else I should read? Lastly, I'm running the VINs in AutoCheck (bought unlimited 30 day..so I can help others looking). One car on Autotrader (Beechwood Dealer) is a retired PDE with 25k miles. Stay away? To see what I'm looking at, I search on all sites with these filters (year: 2005-2008, make/model: porsche 911, mileage: < 50k, price:<$45k, distance:any) Linwoodc3@mac.com. I can email the price breakdowns I came up with...4 slide PDF. MORE IMPORTANT : where should I drive when I get this ( road types)?
I cant believe a Porsche Dealer Cannot print out a DME Ignition Range Report ? Back in September 2012, I was looking at an 06 997 coupe with low miles. I never got far into the hunt because I could never nail down answers to the litany of questions anyone would have including a PPI report. The Sales rep at that time was not customer friendly. Lo and behold, yesterday, I get an email from a "new" salesman inquiring if I still had interest in the car? Being inquisitive, I found my original notations and decided to explore. When I got to the request again about the Ignition Range Interrogation, I got this back from the service manager ; "Hello Phil, Thank you again for your interest in our 2006 Porsche 911. Unfortunately, we are unable to print out the information, so we are showing it to you in hand written form. The ECU data did not show any beneficial information. This will show over revs from ranges 1-6. Please let me know what you think! Sincerely, " This can't be legit. Maybe the office printer died yesterday, but something ain't right here? Perhaps this is why a perfectly good 06 has been sitting for 265 days ? Opinions please. Many thanks
