Default Looking to Buy an Iconic Car - Help Me Out?

Hello All and Merry Christmas

Already own one iconic car in the form of my 2006 Corvette, and am wanting to add the 911 to the stable.

Seeking a summer cruiser (for a variety of reasons) which for me means two things - a Cabrio AND auto transmission.

I have a budget of approx. $50K CDN.

I live in the west end of Toronto - used to visit the Saturday morning coffee meet up when it was being held (many) years ago behind the old Chapters store on the Queensway. Looking to get educated on the 911 and what my budget might be good for?

Can I buy you a coffee and get some enlightenment?

Thanks

Jack

I would AVOID a Tiptronic tranny!!!! They are really sloppy.

2009 was the first year of PDK. That is what you want. It sparked a revolution.

You probably need more $$$.

I respect Joe's views however...
I have a 911 with a tiptronic tranny, put roughly 26K km on it, even tracked the car at LCMT, and I had absolutely no issues. Quite enjoyable in Orange Cone county here !

If that can put you in the right budget bracket, I wouldn't think twice.

I may have found a 2009 - it has the PDK....
