Pccb's will last longer than you own the car if used on the street. Spirited street driving stresses the brakes about 30% as compared to track use. I have carbon ceramic brakes on 2 cars and love them, but they can be scary in the rain.

I'd get that TTS, pull the wrap to check the paint is original and at least buffable, pay for the front lip repairs (and beat the price down another $2000) and be freakin' THRILLED for the next few years on a daily basis. These cars are nearly bullet proof, and if you confirm it does have a warranty, then you're fine. Don't cheap out now!

Agreed! Grab one of these beautiful beasts and drive the heck out of it! Bailing out now and getting a 997 is cheaper in the short run, but in the long run you will be better served with a 991.

The age old rule still applies: Buy the newest, best condition Porsche you can afford...

But they can be scary in the rain... True that! I occasionally wonder what might be happening as that water vaporizes... Does it turn to super hot steam and work its way into those micro cracks in the surface? Water is the universal solvent and under heat and pressure, even more so... Yet these brake rotors have been surviving for almost a decade under these conditions. Makes you wonder what is next in the future of automobile brakes?

As for these two automobiles? High milage drivers that are easily able to head into the 200-300 thousand mile class. A life well lived is far better than being stillborn with a silver spoon in your mouth or a cover over you for protection.

Buy one of these two cars (TTS) and drive it!

I agree with Randy. Get the TTS.

So, I've pretty much moved on from 991 turbos, but then I came across this thing, which is easily the cheapest 991 turbo I've seen in the few months that I've been seriously looking. Thought I'd revive this old thread to hear what others think about it.

It's a 2014 TTS for only $77K! I haven't checked the CarFax on it, haven't called about it, and I have no idea what condition it's in, but wow, that's cheap for a 991 TTS! And it has 5-lug wheels and a glass roof, both of which I think are pretty awesome. Only problem is that it has almost 88K miles! Must've been owned by a travelling salesman or something. If I lived anywhere near it (I think it's in Fairfax VA) I'd go check it out and try to get a sense for how nice it is.

Thoughts?

2014 991 TTS for $77,000

It has a car fax..Accident/ Severe Damage. It’s not an “S”.

Look far from me to argue for a salvage but
- accident was in 2015
- front side not close to engine
- I'd find out how many miles have been driven on it since 2015 (4 years). If most then you have your answer.
- I'd find out who did the work, talk to them, was it a full write off (salvage title), and get a full detailed ppi.

Not saying it's a steal at all. Just saying for the right person this would be a good buy (not necessarily at that price. No one on this forum for example would touch it.

On the front splitter being damaged, if it's just the rubber lip component, it's $1600-$1900 for a replacement depending if you want the "Turbo S" lettering. The entire assembly costs upwards of $4k so hopefully it's just the lip and nothing else.
Yes, the CPO does transfer over in a private party sale.
