The Total 911 team’s dream £150,000 Porsche 911 garage
If £100,000 gets you a nearly new Porsche 911 and £250,000 can put an established halo car in your dream garage, £150,000 seems to be the point in the Porsche 911 market where a number of future stars currently sit.
Here are the two vastly different Porsche 911s that the Total 911 team would choose with a theoretical budget of £150,000 ($235,000). Do you approve?
As you’ll have read from our ‘Rennsport Masters’ cover story in issue 125, the 997.2 GT3 RS is an exquisite Porsche 911 that simply comes alive on track (and is equally sensational on the road).
A true 911 that responds best to being hustled through each corner, that the 3.8-litre RS is still £150,000 – less than half that of a RHD RS 4.0 – is comparatively miraculous, so I’d not hesitate in snapping one up before they climb north of that.
I’ve had a good look around the example for sale at Hexagon, so that’d be my first port of call – after a quick visit to the bank manager, of course!
I couldn’t choose anything else, could I? At the end of last year, I proclaimed that the Porsche 911 2.2S was my number one drive of 2014. It’s a simply magnificent machine that exemplifies everything fantastic about pre-impact bumper Porsche 911s.
Its lithe and nimble with a peaky, sonorous flat six to provide the power and soundtrack and, being part of the fabled 911S legacy, prices are only ever going to go one way meaning I can love driving it while not having to worry about my investment.
Buying a pre-impact bumper Porsche 911 means I wouldn’t look far from these two Blood Orange examples at acclaimed specialist, Autofarm.
