Well bravo. You circumvented the swear filter and used bad language on quite a friendly forum to make a childish point. Have a groan.
groaning at each post in this thread and posting negative rep is not childish? ok...enjoy same..

Gents any chance of keeping this mildly on topic.

There is no way on God's green earth I am going to buy a 4x4 with summer approaching.

2004 GT3. Cheapest I can find on Autoscout is 85k (and that is a yellow one and awful); yours for 70k odd (with haggle and taxes).

Thanks - unfortunately I've managed to get gf approval on the basis that it is 4wd, has back seats and a soft top.

If I were in the UK, a GT3 would be very tempting though...

Thank you for the advice. I am only interested in having a Porsche from an official Porsche centre. The model I want in the right colour, with reasonable mileage isn't available in the whole of CH right now. I have had problems in the past from buying cars from non-main dealers, when there have been warranty problems. Also nowhere else is offering a 2 year global warranty - with a car like this that is very important to me. Importing a car from the US would also have this problem, as well as the conversion issues and frankly I'm not sure a purchase of this magnitude is done over the phone/email.

Wrt to parking. Not really an issue - I will rent a garage next to my apartment and live close to the centre of Zurich, so would still continue to use the tram/S-Bahn to get into the city centre.

I think this thread is derailing into a discussion about the merits of the Cayenne, Range Rovers etc. So let me try to pull it back.

Tough luck on the tt - but I guess these things happens.

If a 996tt is what you want, then you would probably regret picking up the 4s, even though it is a nice car. If I were in your shoes, I would hold out for the tt - there seems to be plenty around...

Re: Car leasing residual value

Can not find a Porsche !!!???
Have a look here: http://www.porsche-zentrum.com/pch-z...ales/usedcars/

I personaly wouldn`t buy a second hand car, you never know what they did in it before. It is realy anoying driving a car someone else used it and thinking about where and how those blotches come from.

Also 320 horsepower is not realy that much if you have to overtake al those snails. At least it should be a GT 3, a BMW M6 or Alpina is worth to think about too. I had a Dodge Viper until i minced a cow with it, it is a great car with 500 horsepower below 1700kg with a moderate price tag. Or get the newer Viper ACR. With this car you won`t need an excuse for not driving your mother in law around.

You mean the one with an advanced driving licence, whose daily driver in the UK was a Clio 172 cup. Don't tar all women with the same brush.

Wow. Where to start with this...

I am looking at a 911 (996) turbo cabriolet, which isn't grey/silver and hasn't got astronomical milage on it from a Porsche main dealer at a reasonable price. Trust me, there aren't any other than the one which is no longer available.

As previously stated a GT3 isn't an option here. A 911 turbo will destroy an M6 or Alpina. Incidentally the turbo has 420bhp not 320bhp. Vipers are agricultural, so no thanks.

Oh and weren't you the one who earlier told me that I should look at older cars, which were more within my reach?

Not everyone knows the details of the Clio Cup I guess.. Maybe we are sorting the "talk about cars" out from the "know about cars"
