Beautiful but the price is way over the top... you could get a good RS or 3.6 Turbo for less than that.

Try to imagine that you buy a new car, put it in your garage and never drive it for 20 years.. WOW.

When I bought my C2 , two years ago , it had 2500 Km on it. Today I'm around 7000 KM.

I paid $40 000 for it. This asking price is way to high unless the buyer wants to lock it up another 20 years as an investment that may increase in value faster than inflation. That is a risk though. The moment that you drive it, the .'' as new'' value drops rapidly I think.

estimated depreciation approx £1000 per each 1000km??.....so definitely not to be considered by any one who is interested in driving it.
wonder if its gonna leak & (imo) wheels need upgrading. love the interior tho'

$40k CDN? Was it a Canadian car? $40k for a 2500km original Canadian car isn't bad.

Yes, It's a Canadian car. Actually it's one of the first 964 Carrera 2 to be brought to Canada. The mechanic who inspected it said that I would never again get the chance to buy a new Porsche at that price. He also added that he would buy it himself but he already had one and he knew of a few people would buy it that day if I wasn't interested.

That's a great deal for the Canadian market.

Most expensive car I ever had was a low mileage 911. One little thing after another needed fixing and it just wasn't "happy". They like to be driven.

IMHO, the problem with low mileage cars is that the price depends solely on the low miles. If you decide to drive it, it becomes a double whammy.

I just saw your post after I posted my thread, Andy. Initially thought we had been looking at the same car.
