My understanding is you can buy from outside the network, get a porsche inspection and then porsche warranty? Would look fully into all that before purchase.
I think you're right. Footers has been looking at a Panny and trying to get the garage to send it to Porsche to get an inspection so he can get Porsche warranty.

Like nardo, the colour that looks like they forgot to paint it but Porsche charge twice the price of metallic for !

He knows I’m kidding as I bottled getting mine in that colour!

My dealer had 991 TTS in crayon with lots of black accents. It looked awesome

The sweet spot for 911's is normally the 'GTS' range, 997 GTS/991.1 GTS, both manual. Also these will be the best to hold value over time, although the 997 version is becoming vary rare/expensive to the point its closing in on 991.. Obviously the GT3's are better, but with that you lose rear seats and gain more raw power, if you're after something special, then GT3. Turbo's in the 991/2 are great all rounders but you lose the feel as they have ALOT of driver tech, unless you go 997.1 TT .. All of the turbo's are very fast.

So 997 if you want old school feel, 991 if you want more modern. Dont bother with 991.2 onwards they all went 3.0T, the 991.1's were still 3.4 non S and 3.8 s N/A. 992's are just to fat :)
