    44 First Pcar is a 997. Waiting for this for 20 years. First House 83, First kid 86 , second house 87, third house 89 , second kid 89 , 90 to 2003 Life, first kid off to university 04(engineering - hopefully he'll make an even better pcar) and finally 29/06/05 delivery/pickup first p car after all financial affairs have been taken care of - purchased with my debit card!

    I have found nirvana!! 5500 km and counting - man this is fun.



    Pic911....well done. You started early purchasing a home at 23 or so. Patience was rewarded after 20 yrs.

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    30 years old. Just took delivery of a 987S. First Porsche

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    20... Dont have my car just yet.

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    I feel guilty bought many new Porsches before my first house

    P.S. BC997J if you live in Cape town make a Kite and Kite-board your next purchase .

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    Thx cwb. 20 years of waiting was well worth it. Every time I get in my car I get a big smile on my face. My wife gave me a hard time with it (and still kinda does) but I have no guilty feelings about this indulgence, maybe its because I waited so long and feel satisfied that I've taken care of the family first and I don't feel the pressure of payments etc etc.

    People should do whatever they feel comfortable with as far as their financial affairs are concerned but I for one will promote financial stability before purchasing what is an over the top indulgence like this. If you are blessed with having the means to buy one of these cars at a young age ie your 20's the only advice I could give is .. be safe with it and appreciate what you have. I know if I got this car in my 20's I may have not reached this age as I, like many younger people took speed for granted.

    In fact when I was in my 21 I got in a horrific car crash (hit black ice by myself) and ended up with cracked c5-c6 vertebrae and in a halo vest for 3 months. Let me tell you, do I ever appreciate this car.

    These cars are so much fun to drive but be safe out there everyone please. Know your driving limitations, when you can speed and when not to and don't put anyone in your car or others on the road at risk.

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    I'm 38 and bought my first Porsche, a 997. I waited 22 years since getting the porsche bug and worth the wait!

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    First Porsche (911SC) in 1979, 2nd one (Carrera) in 1985, 3rd one in the early '90's, and at long last a new '06 997S as a 47th B-day present to myself. I've had a bunch of other fun cars in between - but, nothing that compares to the new 997!

    My 997 Cabrio had its birthday on 9/14 and by the time I get it the weather will be perfect in Florida. So I will be looking forward to the warm winter nights here! I am leaving for South Africa on Thursday where its Spring. I am covering all the seasons this fall.

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    35 - but still waiting for the right moment when my circumstances will permit me to get my first Porsche. I hope it's a fully loaded 997S.

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    59, my 1st P-car 997 C2 is on order. Delvry approx. Jan-Feb '06.
    Mercedes since '78 (but NO MORE!)

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    47, bought a used 914 around age 20, then bought a used 1972 911T 2.4 followed by a used 1982 911 SC (only 2000 miles on odometer but still used), and then 22 years later purchased my first new 997S in November of last year and plan to stick with Mr. P. for some time. There is nothing like a Porsche and I've owned quite a few automobiles except exotics to campare it to (anything over $100K is exotic to me).

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    28

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    51. First one was 993 C back in '94. Now it is 11 years old and to be traded in for the '06 Carrera S very soon.

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    23 and lovin it, first time p-car owner, 997s cab arrives in
    3 weeks

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    Ordered at 33, should arrive when I'm 34.

    Will pay cash, and it was after very hard work in setting-up an IT company that eventually did well after struggling with business for couple of years, but now things are great.

    So I guess I deserve a little indulgence, although I do feel a bit of guilt every once in a while for ordering it. I don't think I'll let clients see me in the 997, that's why I'm keeping my 5-series.

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    I am 44 and going strong still

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    Turned 60 August 25th (same b-day as Elvis Costello) and ordered on 8/26.
    Am I the oldest? Haven't read the entire thread.

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    55 shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !

    Re: How Old is everyone on here? Average Age of P Car Owner

    Most of the Porsche (911) owners I see around here are older than I am, and I am 52. I think the people on this board tend to be younger - not that its a problem, but it kind of skews the statistics.
