Thanks for the feedback.

It's just an itch I'm now able to scratch (that I never thought I would) apart from the garaging/storage at the moment.

It will be a 2nd/3rd car. I plan to keep the RS.

Was going to buy a 911 turbo S as 2nd car initially.

Just was treated badly by porsche colchester, and very well by ferrari colchester.

Wierdly they are opposite each other and owned by the same company.

Customer of both. Equally happy with both.

Just bear in mind, maybe stating obvious, used prices are inflated right now, F not as badly impacted by supply as others, the depreciation will return. And it’s not small, maybe not a factor but do not go in eyes closed. Also consider servicing costs, they are significant and annual. Oh, and the fuel. 90 litres of v bastert best part of 150 notes, and gets you 200-250 miles. Less if rev limit tested.

Hi, yeah fully aware so my problem is likely to help me? Who knows.

Seems Porsche treat actual customers better than potential ones.

I approached them 3 times, never got back to me so their loss. Treated me with scorn it felt like? Ferrari have been totally different. Porsche colchester won't be getting my business.

Even so, it’s a whole new level of consumption.

Just go in eyes open, F experience is wonderful, don’t let it blinker!
