Dial 911

With all of the various perseveration threads we have out there, I don't think we have one for the random 911s that we come across, think we should buy, but eventually do not.

Here, let me start:

Yeah, that checks most of the boxes. It's missing sport chrono and leather dash, but presumably you can live without those.

I've been looking for a 2010-2011 911 GTS but haven't found many that are priced reasonably. Seem like a sweet spot for the 997s.

No Sport Plus. Pass.

I'm still annoyed at that white one I missed.

Edit:
And, yeah, I too really want a GTS. Just not willing to spend $70+.

Is $60k a good price for a 2009 Carrera S with 25k miles and almost no factory options?

I don't think it's a bad price. These cars remain stupidly expensive. They bottomed out a few years ago--I think when I was looking in 2011 you could get a 3 year old car for about this price.

They haven't been that cheap since.

It seems really high. That or the cayman and boxster are a screaming bargain.

Or?

I think it's "and."

Though it has always been the case that the Boxster/Cayman are insanely better values than the 911, year for year, even brand new.

It's definitely on the high end. I would expect it to be in the low 50's, but bubble pricing and all that....

edit:
I only see maybe (4) within 100 miles listed cheaper.

I know i'm in the minority, but the only reason I even consider lusting after a 911 is all the hype this board gives it and the idea that owning a Porsche is supposed to be cool. That car is bleh to me.
