How many miles should I expect my engine to last?

Recommended Posts

I would say several hundred thousand miles at least (baring any latent failures i.e.eng, x-msn). Most people don't keep a car that long for many reasons. But In my opinion if all the necessary maintenance was performed you could drive the car the rest of your life. But that raises other questions as to why you would really want to? I like my car a lot, but its human nature to yearn for that next new model. (As long as its a Porsche you understand)

My car has 61,000 miles a 1999 a six year old car right? Six years averages approx. 10,000 miles a year. In 20 years at the current average I would have approx. 250,000 - 300,000 miles on it. As I figure My first Porsche was a 1975 911S that was faster than Hell for a 23 year old to be driving It was 10 years old when I bought it and is probably still on the road today.

Long live Porsche

I've read an article in Christophorus about the PCCB brakes: the chief engineer claimed that they had put on test a set of PCCB brakes on a road car for 300,000 kms [~180,000 miles].

If what he says is true, we could expect at least this equal longevity of our cars.
