The 991s are tumbling at a rapid rate and I think a point will come when the 991 price will be the same as a 997.2 Manual. The only unknown for me is if we will see a large price discrepancy between manuals and PDK on the 997.2. In the 993, 996 and 997 the manual commands a premium. However the 997.2 PDK is bloody good and I think the allure of the manual may not be as strong.

For what its worth if I had unlimited budget; I would still get a 997.2 S PDK.
Its a great value car; clearly of the carrera's the most reliable with the change to the DI engine and bullet proof PDK.
Its good the classic look, buckets of performance, and at end of series may be the best ever 911 (carrera) in the modern era built.

991 I heard are full of electronic gremlins and will cost as they hit you out of the warranty.

Of course all this is based on pure research and not up to par from you guys with real experience.

I like it but not your typical Porsche colour.
Ticks all the boxes by the looks of it. Why don't you go check it out!

Very seriously AIRCON; I hope you sell your 996 quickly as you have decided to sell.
But I will 100% come and check it out once April 7th Arrives and I get my cash if it hasnt moved.
I do know my lower limit so it should be in my range.
Cheers!

I live in Kinglake on Pine ridge road.. MB are the lawyers running the class action settlement.... as we lost everything except  each other in the 2009 fires, the payout will be quite a few bucks for me (but not as much as you might think given the circumstances and the costs of the case).

Not enough worthy of investing instead?
