Default What do you pay for Insurance

What do folks pay for insurance for their 991?
For my C2S cabriolet Allstate is quoting me $996 for 6 months, which seems very expensive to me. Especially since we have only 2 drivers and 4 cars and I told them I would drive this one only around 5k miles/year.
We have good driver discounts, multiple policies, no accidents on our records, etc.
They claim that repair costs are high on this vehicle, but still $2k a year???

Who do you use and how much do you pay?

Just got my statement. 6 months.

State and city are DETERMINING factors too. Even different areas of a city. Downtown or outskirts.

Wow that sounds very high but of course I refuse to live in the peoples republic of California for just such reasons. My 2015 GTS runs me $820/yr from State Farm.

that's around what I was quoted by AAA. I think geico was a little cheaper because I could up the deductible over $1k.

Cali definitely higher than the midwest. I carry higher deductibles on all my cars and self insure to a certain extent. It will cut premiums. I have used State Farm for many years.

I'm in my fourth six-month term with Geico for our three cars and they keep smoking the other companies since I usually recompare during renewal. They also haven't tried to boost my rates after the first introductory rate year like the last two companies I had used. This time the rates from everyone else I tried were approaching twice as expensive.

I'm paying $540 for six months for the Porsche part of the premium (pleasure use) but I also have $251 deductible so I'm not reluctant to fix things even though it is not the most economical way to go. If I bumped it to $1001 it would drop it to $418 but I'm ok with the extra $20/month. I also have rather high coverages for the different liabilities and uninsured motorists.

I'd certainly try getting their online quote, it doesn't take all that long. Here's the car-specific part, the rest of the amount is the liability coverages.

Depending on your risk tolerance (and if you own the car outright) you might consider just liability, which would cut your premiums by 50-75%.
