    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    I almost bouth an Espada 5 years back. Today I bight my ass that I didn't do. The car has the Miura engine, so most of the Espadas are becoming a spare part car for the Miura. The price went sky rocket in the last 5 years.

    Did you watch the Harry Metcalfe video, BTW? He is driving the car to the Cote d'Azur, very nice video Smiley

    Yeah - I did see that video. 

    I was 5 years ago in London and stayed at the Sanderson Hotel as a guy was parking in front of it in a grey Espada. That was the moment when the car got my attention. It is so awkward that it is just beautiful. Super flat, super spacious - I really felt in love to that car. So I went for the hunt and those days there have been 3 cars available in Germany. One was only 30k and not even in that a bad of a condition but the engine needed and overhaul. The other two have been 60k and being really quiet good. Today similar cars are going for 150-200k€. So again. I basically stepped away as one of the owners told me that those cars are horrendously unreliable. They might start one morning and the day after you have to re-adjust the carburetors. Also he said that after ever 2500km the engine would need to be removed for a overhaul. Today I know that this was way too exaggerated, nevertheless I got cold feets and stepped away.

    I think you sent me an email asking me what I think about it, right? Wonderful car indeed but who could have known that prices go that up? I think I told you to get one but not because of possible price increases but the coolness factor.

    Yeah - we did discuss this those days. I really been into this car. It was also the time when we got our 356 Speedster, so it would have been in parallel. And seeing that simplicity in the Porsche compared to the complexity of the Lamob (just that armada or carburators shocked me and I kind of believed that guy when telling me that the car is hard to maintain. Still - I regret as I still adore the crazy look of this car. 


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    Didn't he ask 50 or 60k for it? Was quite the bargain.

    yep - 60k


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

     Cannot focus too much on regrets. I bought a 1974 Carrera RS 3.0 liter brand-new and sold it three years later for $25,000. That same  car of mine, several owners later, recently sold at auction for 1.4 million. yes

    You must mix something up. I didn't test ride that Espada. The car I really HATED after the testride was the 280 SL Pagode. That car was behaving like a truck. The most unsexy Roadster I ever steered. It was even worse and "bigger" behaving than my 300S Adenauer from 1953
