I’m turning 50 later this year as well and have started the “process” of looking into a 911. I am turned off by how high the prices have gone from pre-covid…but like you… you only live once and turning 50 is a nice time to move up to a 911.I am approaching my 50th birthday so I decided to finally pull the trigger on a Porsche 911. I always wanted a Cab so that's what I'm going with. My basic question is whether it is worth paying more for a Carrera S over the base Carrera? Of course I would love the extra power, but don't know when or how often I would even need it.
Thanks for any insights. Btw, I think I'm going with the GT Silver with black top. Also I think I must get the Sports Chrono package right?
I am also considering a cab, but I want a stick..which means having to go to an S model..pricing for an S cab plus my dealer’s 20-25k markup puts the car at a pretty heavy premium. I have a buddy who bought a super low mileage CPO 991.1 TURBO for 120k just a few years ago. Now that barely gets you a CPO base.. 🤑
Happy Birthday to us. It is a good problem to have to be “worried” about how much to spend on your new 911. . No one will feel sorry for us. Ha!
