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

    I am 65 years and 7 months. My 2005 997S Coupe is my fifth 911 and sixth Porsche. I owned a 914 - 2.0L in 1974. My 997S is the best Porsche I have owned so far.

    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.


    Guilt? That will all go away when you take delivery..

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

    Age 39, started this madness fifteen cars ago with an MG Midget at age 17.

    (funniest age-wisecrack I've ever heard -- an octogenarian friend of mine likes to say to anyone (especially women) who will listen :
    "I'm eighty-two, but I've got the body of a seventy-nine year old."

    ... guess I've got a dry sense of humor )

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

    I am 35...my first Porsche was a used 914 2.0. I then had a 2000 996. I am now picking up a 997 C4S Cab on Sunday.

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

    71! My hx includes three Porsches since 1968 (my first with six webers - last of the carb P's) - and now after assorted Chevy's, Mercs, Beemers, Jags, (and must admit to a Corvette as well) - am awaiting a 997 S....as a porschephile friend once said, "If you can - then you must!"

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

    I just placed an order for a 997S last week (age 57) and will take delivery of it in January or February, at age 58. It will be my first Porsche.

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

    Same B D =8/25====56. Ordered my CS coupe on BD. Just told it will be here on Friday.. Weather may hold out for a few days and then ,into storage.
    Average age appears to be approx. 40... But, is an internet sample.. I suspect the full demographic age profile is closer to 50. With 85% male. Married with grown kids,,,or,in high school/college . Would be interesting to have other data...incomes, geographies, types of jobs, number of times P drivers have sex per week, etc.
    Hail to the P cars ! !

    Is that # times of sex per week, or just sex in the Porsche?

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

    still 23

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

    will someone average this or we just have to guess?

    just a small question...

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

    I tallied the responses, including Grant's father (age 70) and Jake Kaufmann (who's the oldest at 71). I included those who have placed a firm order (including myself) and their respective age when they anticipate delivery of the car.

    I tried to eliminate any duplicates and could not include at least one that appeared ridiculous (one listing 97 as the age - if this is true, I apologize in advance - you should be in the Porsche records book).

    There are 166 responses so far, as of 4 November 2005. The mean (or average) age is 38.8 years, with a standard deviation of 11.06 years. With one standard deviation on each side of the mean, 2/3 rd's of the total responses (about 111) are in the 27.7 - 49.9 age bracket.

    The minimum age of an owner is 18, the maximum age is 71. Here are the numbers for the following age brackets: under age 21, 6 ; 21-30, 28 ; 31-40, 68 ; 41-50, 37 ; 51-60, 21 ; 61-70, 5 ; and over 70, 1 .

    Hope that satisfies the curious for a while.

    Not really, Kevin. One of my major fields in graduate school was econometrics, and this was a pretty simple statistical exercise. I enjoy number crunching on occasion.

    I figured as much, Jim! Good work- thanks!

    Great Work with your calculations.

    If only I had known how great a P-car is, I would have owned one much earlier.

    First and only Porsche so far is my 914 1.8 which I bought when I was 19. It happens to be my first car as well.

    I absolutely love my 914 but I want something a newer and quicker. I haven't really sorted out what I want to do for the rest of my life and my current job doesn't pay too well. Hopefully I will get that figured out soon enough and get on track for a new Porsche Any suggestions?

    40...and still no midlife crisis. No time...

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

    35 ..1st p-car myo4 986s..planning on buying 987s in 2 years..

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

    I ordered my 1st Porsche in June 1997 (Arena Red 986 (Boxster)) and got it 9 months latter (that was the wait back then). I was 30 when I picked it up. It was a sad day when the lease expired and I decided to give it up (It was a stupid lease where I could buy it for Blue book plus 5%, never making that mistake again though I was tempted to buy it anyways).

    Well 3 kids latter (and perhaps 10 pounds as well), I 'convinced' my wife that I need 'rear' seats to carry the kids so I 'needed' the 997 as the Boxster just won't do. It certainly does help that my two boys (5 and 3) are absolutely car crazy and it would really kill them if they could not sit in dad's car. So I am anxiously waiting (Nov build) on a Atlas Grey/Natural Grey Cab S (I had to get a cab after the boxster). I am 38 now. (Darn am I past middle age?)
