What can I say, I like cars The EF Rolls thread helped me to come to my senses and not buy one.
Next year I will probably ask: Should I buy a Tesla 3 (and sell my 911).

Nonsense. Plenty of 997.1 manuals. Prior to the 997.2 with the dual clutch box, the auto option was the deservedly much maligned tiptronic option, so plenty went for the manual.
The 997.1 was predominantly sold as a manual. It is indeed only after the dual clutch PDK came to the market that they started selling better. The tiptronic box made the engine labour too much which didn't help the reliability.

Is OP still looking for one?

Re: Porsche 911 Carrera (997)

Iím selling my 997.2 4S in the spring (not yet!). Sadly it is PDK but only had 90,000km and is a 03/2009 build. Will include winter tires and rims and trickle charger for ~48,500chf. Again wonít be until spring 2019.

OP: Could probably get a high mileage 997.1 manual early model year in 30k range.
