Just get a 993 Turbo

totally different $$$ though, i was originally looking for one of those, but a decent one will set you back well north of $150k

the 996 GT3 can be had for less than that for a very nice car. and to be honest i actually think i made the right decision, the GT3 really is an animal. not that the Turbo isnt, but its a completely different drive. (from the limited seat time ive had in 993's anyway)


I thought they were basically the same car just with slight variations (upgrades), I could and probably am wrong :scratchchin:

honestly, my take on it is that theyre both good and are for the most part are the same car with just a few little differences. i think it just comes down to personal preference. See if you can message Q because he has had both

I can see no less than seven 993 Turbos which could be had for under 150k. Iím not sure what sort of KMís you are after but most are sub 100,000. It wonít be a garage queen for that money.

I wouldnít think the market for a 15 year old $150k car would be huge so you may even be able to haggle.

I think the investment prospects on a 993 Turbo would be more sound then a 996 Mk1 so you may pay more upfront but if you ever sell I think you will get your money back.

i dont dissagree, and there do seem to be allot of 993tts around now. but as with anything when you want to buy, theres none around and theyre all expensive. i did have 1 car fully inspected and it had too much to fix, and with a car of such age, its a matter of finding the right one. a good silver one with between 50-75k's on it will still cost you over $150, last really good one i saw was a silver 1 owner with 80k's on it and it was advertised for $150k and was gone within a week.

True dat. Both 996 and 993 TT's are over 150 for the nice ones. They are expensive to fix if they've been mistreated.
C'mon, do it!

For 20K sake you would be silly to buy a mk1, the 04 car is much more refined and has had 5 years less flogging, suspension components ect are expensive for these things.

Just my 2c
