Default How many miles per year do you drive your 928?

How many miles per year do you drive your 928?

I remember in the 1980s, my Dad daily drove his. Took to work, we took on weekend runs, and even used the car in all 4 seasons, including snow. It was a wonderful car. My 928, I sparingly use, but it's mostly due to being so busy and not enough time to spend driving the fun cars

How much/often do you use your 928, and what's its primary duty?

It isn't my daily driver as I do quite a bit of driving. The 928 isn't the most economical to use. I drove my '84 about 5k miles this year only because I hadn't driven one to amount to anything since 2012. My current '84 hadn't been on the road since 2010. I foresee 3-5k in '17.

About 2K (Blumaxx) and who knows with my 85 - it will be more and Blumaxx will be less.

Mine did DD duty for a while, weekends-plus duty for a while. Averaged about 4k miles/yr. The last few years have been less, around 2500/yr., now that winter is a non-driving season. Need to do more touring, that's for sure.

I bought this one in 2009 and have put on 20,000 miles. If I divide that buy how much cash I've dumped into it (not including purchase price, gas, insurance, etc.) I'm at $1.25 a mile. Kind of crazy when I think about it.

We put 19K on the GT in the last 12 months but that was unusual, 110K in the 8 years we've owned her.
The S4 does a few thousand a year (90K in 29 years), and the GTS a few hundred.

My previous 1989 S4 - 4625 miles average per year over 16 years of ownership (sold 2013)
My now 1991 GT 4000 miles average per year over the past 4 years.

Total 90,000 (great) miles over 20 years in a 928!!

I put about 38K km in 11 years. 3500 per year.

I put a bit more in the past 5 years.
Going to Frenzy had about 2K km each year.

Worth every kms though!

I've owned mine for 8 years but have only put 23k miles on it due to an excess of down time. I try to drive it whenever I can as I have no intentions on leaving it for the next guy. Sorry kids

I'm planning on moving mine into a 'nearly daily' status, once the winter tasks are done. The problem is that I love my Cayenne and I'm shopping for a Boxster, so even with a daily goal in mind, there's fierce competition in my garage.

I'm up to almost 8-9k Km's per year, but not daily driven. Just weekends and many trips throughout the year.

Didn't drive mine at all since November of 2015. Tranny is trashed. I haven't been able to install the replacement I bought yet, but should have it done over the holidays.

I do put around 4K on it normally per year. It gets driven more than my other collector cars, cause it's more practical. My wife prefers the 928, and our Aero Coupe over the others.

Last mileage record I provided my insurance made me realize I drive this car less than 500 miles per a year. Damn.

3000- up to may be 5000 at the most. To the airport, picking up kids, running a few errands. Thats it. When it gets painted it will be way less!
