    Year or Registration

     Conundrum time...Smiley

    To those of you that live in countries where the "year of registration" is a big thing - or in say, the UK, where there is a new registration letter that denotes the year:  my question is, how long can you bear waiting..?!

    I'm due for delivery of my Carrera GTS some time in November. Smiley I can use a "temporary" plate for 4 weeks, so I can take delivery in the 1st week of December and still register it as a 2012 car.  Helps in resale value - although it's stupid, I know.  Especially as Porsche cars "years" change in July.  But not everyone that looks at pre-owned Porsches will know that when I come to sell (in about 2036!)

    So... if it comes in early November, I'll have the unbearable knowledge that it's sitting at the Porsche Centre waiting for me..!  (Apparently visiting hours are 9am-5pm!Smiley)

    Has anyone been in this predicament..?!  What should it be - head or heart..!  Smiley

    Answers on a post card please!!!!


    Re: Year or Registration

    IMO if you don't plan to sell for over 4-5 years, then it will make little difference. The biggest factor is the depreciation that comes from a mixture of age, mileage and new models/facelifts etc i.e. the introduction of the 991 will have its affect on resale price.

    If you are not going to sell for many years, I would just get it sooner rather than later so you can just get on with enjoying it
