Porsche 911. Buy The Dream With Care

Aug 17, 2007
For many years, the Porsche 911 has represented the epitome of true sports car driving. Generations have had childhood dreams of owning and driving their very own Porsche 911. For those wanting to finally make those childhood dreams come true by buying a high quality one owner 911, there are some things that you will need to be aware of before handing over your cheque. If you are not careful, your dream car could cost you far more than what you bargained for.

There is no doubt that driving your very own Porsche 911 is a dream worth attaining, so when you are searching for your dream Porsche 911, you must remember not to jump in too quickly. While the Porsche 911 was always built to last, you need to make sure that any one owner car that you inspect and potentially buy has been properly cared for.

Thoroughly check the service history
When you buy a Porsche 911, you need to feel confident that you are getting a car that has been expertly maintained. A Porsche 911 needs to be serviced by a Porsche specialist. Ultratune or your local mechanic will just not do. Thoroughly check the service history of the vehicle. Find out who has made mechanical repairs and serviced the car and check their Porsche credentials. If you are spending a small fortune, then feel free to contact the mechanic to discuss the service history of the vehicle.

Many Porsche 911s, especially older ones, will have had clutches and other major mechanicals replaced. Don't be turned off by this, you just need to make sure that the job has been done properly.

Has the car been raced?
There will be many Porsche 911s out there that have been put through their paces on the race track. Check for any signs that may indicate whether the car has spent time on the race track. Some of these telltale signs may include extra gauges, evidence that a roll cage has been removed and uneven tyre wear and body damage. Unless you are planning on racing yourself, then you should steer clear of any car showing such signs.

Get a professional inspection
If you buy a Porsche 911 and find that a few months down the track you need to replace anything mechanical, then you know you are going to be up for big dollars. It should go without saying that with any one owner Porsche 911 that you are serious about buying, you should get a professional inspection from somebody who knows and works on Porsches.

If you've never driven a Porsche before
If you've never driven a Porsche 911 before, or if you have spent only a small amount of time behind the wheel of one, then it will be a good idea to get some professional driving lessons as driving these cars will not be like driving your average family sedan. In the hands of an inexperienced driver testing their new car for the first time, the Porsche 911 can be a deadly weapon. This is especially the case with older Porsche 911s as the handling can really bite when you put your foot down hard, even on fairly straight roads.
