Dang, I would have figured they’d have held their value better.

 

 

Me, too.  That's why I posted the thread!  :D

a friend of mine alerted me to this around first of the year, I didnt pay much mind to it since I couldn't act, but one of those convertibles for 18k would be sweet

This one has an absolutely horrific color scheme but low miles and looks very well cared for: https://www.carfax.c...0CA29971S654037

that british racing green with tan is a classic combo, but doesn't look right on that car.

 

my biggest gripe with most porsches is that they are overwhelmingly silver.  fecking boring.

Agreed, the BRG feels wrong on that car.  It definitely does work on some cars.

I bet that car looks way better in person. Whoever took the first pic did it in shade. That green looks much better in the following pics. The lighter metallic looks much better with the tan.

The British racing green will look better in person. It looks like the photographer fell in love with HDR and that is making it look like a Thomas Kincade porsche

I don't fit in the 911, I'd have to go with a 944 or a 928 to fit into one.  You know, a Porsche from back when pop up headlights were a thing.

A buddy of mine had a 928 for a bit.

 

While I was out running errands I stopped in to the used car dealership that had a 2004 turbo on the lot.  I agree, you definitely would not fit in that car.  I'm borderline.  I would need some lower profile shoes to work the pedals, that was clear.  That's the first time 'driving shoes' made sense to me.

I would not want a convertible 911. If I wanted a convertible I would get the boxster.

I would say that most convertible look better with the top down but that 911 looks really awkward with the top up. The hardtop looks a lot better. You lose the back roofline, windows which I think of a classic Porsche design

There's a book called the used 911 story. It's pretty useful

Plus, nearly every convertible I’ve ever seen, especially the turbos, are slightly bent. No pillar to support the torque.

 A coworker has a 944 that's pretty slick that I could probably get a helluva deal on.

 

 It's an auto.  :(

i could only do a 944 if it were a turbo and manual.  and I'd still rather save my pennies and get something else like a cayman or something
