:D That would be huge fun, and you'd still have lots of change left from $165K. Actually, for that $165K, you could potentially buy a new V8 Vantage and a 993, or a new 997 and a used V8 Vantage.

Thanks for the input. In my case, the light does not go out at all -- it just stays on. The first time it stayed on happened when the battery was low. After I replaced the battery, it did not show...

Another alternative, though it's still more money at $200K, is the Aston Martin Rapide. It is gorgeous, which I don't think can be said about the Panamera. Not as fast as a Panamera Turbo, but the...

Airbag light question -- another one

I've searched the forum and read lots of comments, but I'm not sure they address my exact situation, so:

After sitting too long over this very snowy winter, about a month ago I went to start my...

I think Edward's points are right on. Also, are you sure you really need the LSD? My '95 doesn't have it and, unless you plan to use it a lot in wet weather, I don't think it's necessary (nice, yes,...

I do it when appropriate, and I doubt there's any harm -- the synchros on my old Saab still work beautifully at 266K miles. As far as the 2nd - 3rd shift is concerned on a cold gearbox, I find...

I agree, and it's a real shame. I recently went shopping for a new sports car, and looked at the new 997. The Porsche "feeling" just wasn't the same as it used to be. It's a shame, because I had...

The market is lower than it was a year ago -- I don't think anyone here is suggesting otherwise. However, I think the bigger drop is for cars that are less than great -- cars in great condition still...

I own a non-Varioram, but I've driven Varioram cars. The difference is in the mid-range torque, where the Varioram is noticeably stronger. Probably for that reason, the non-Varioram feels more...

If I remember correctly, several years ago there was an article in a magazine about a 993 Carrera (in France, I think) that had covered around 400,000 miles, with no major mechanical work.

No one has asked about condition. You say the car is "very clean" and the owner is meticulous. If it's in great shape, it may not be too overpriced. So, if you love the car, it may well be worth it....

The Targa price is very low, IMO, assuming it's a really nice, no stories car. $43K for the '96 Coupe is too high now, but I think Kcreager1's estimate of $34K should be reasonable, with some...

An A8 is NOT faster than a 993, unless it's a very rare W12, in which case it would be a good race. An S8 could give you quite a run.
