2018 - 112km Car purchased late Nov and driven from previous owners garage to my garage for storage.
2019 - as many km as I can. I have the Ottawa area as part of my sales territory so I will do at least a few jaunts along Hwy 7 in the P-Car (800km round trip). I would guesstimate total to come in around 10k.

Did I see you near queen/dufferin during a heavy snowfall 2 or 3 weeks ago?

Was in a dark blue 986

Looks like the majority are getting lots of mileage.

Yesssss absolutely, if there is a snowfall you can bet I am out having fun in it! Queen/Dufferin I was probably going to Sukho Thai on Dundas for dinner I remember seeing you go up the hill past me (south bound on Dufferin just past Queen st) and was thinking to myself, I hope he doesn't have to slow down/stop as that hill was super icy that night!

About 5000 -7000 km's between both per year, 90% pleasure. Not winter driven.

Yikes I am completely out of the norm here.

I try to burn thru at least 1 tank of gas a year but last couple of years I didn't manage to do that.

Nothing worse than burning REALLY old fuel in these cars.
Just saying...

Had my 911 since end of May, just hit the 10,000km mark a week ago. This is missing a full month in the summer and spending literally 1/2 our winter in the mountains skiing (and not driving the 911 but instead the SUV).

Id expect 16,000km a year considering.

These cars are meany to be driven!

I'd love a newer 911 as a DD - but my S4 is still hanging in there. But for practicality (two kids), a Panamera Sport Turismo would be just the ticket!
Good fun those..10000km on mine in a year

The 993 C2 gets maybe 2000 Kms a year, the 997.1 cab maybe 4000 ish and the 08 Cayenne GTS DD around 15,000. Wish there was more time on the weekends for the 911s but we do enjoy them as a family. I don't want to take the 911s to work due to all the BS associated with people who don't understand how depreciation works. 🙄

Picked up my Ĺ17 C2 Cab last June with about 2100km. Had a little over 8k (including a couple of track days at Grand Bend) by the time it was put in storage.
