I’d also be worried about the earlier engines. Whether it’s overstated or not, the lingering fear of a 10k bill would probably spoil the experience. It’s bad enough with a Z4m!

Absolutely love a 987. I've put 60k miles on my daily 987.2 PDK S and it's just laughed it off. Drove it non stop from North of Scotland to West Wales and then down to Chichester recently. Don't think I'll ever sell mine and the 981 steering was such a disappointment in comparison when I looked at changing when the 981 was released. The 718 is a great car but has lost some of the 987 analogue old school balance.

Those aren't the turbo wheels however, they're 19" Carrera wheels, I have the same.

great looking 987 mate! :) I am just seriously discussing with my girlfriend to "upgrade" from our e85 to 987, because 987 is the only option, as it is a proper Porsche.

I wish you manny happy and accident-free miles!
