    How long do u plan on keeping your 911 turbo?

    I'm just wondering since I'm thinking of getting either the 911S or 911 Turbo and have perviously never kept a car longer then 3 years. Though i think i would defintely keep the Turbo for a good 5 years at least.

    Also I was wondering when do you think you will see used 997 Turbos on the market in the U.S? Since i will be keeping my 987 boxster till january 2007 in which time i could wait but not too long i hope.

    I'm thinking of a lease for 3 years. Maybe 4.

    I would expect to see used cars within as little as 6 months after intro. Maybe less.

    Re: How long do u plan on keeping your 911 turbo?

    I would have thought only a few weeks until there are used 911tt's on the market.

    Re: How long do u plan on keeping your 911 turbo?

    You're right. I forgot about the possiblity of people flipping their 997TT's if the market value is significantly higher than the MSRP. In that case, you'll see used ones on the market immediately, my guess.

    Re: How long do u plan on keeping your 911 turbo?

    how much depreciation will you see for a year old Turbo with about 7 000 miles.

    I really hope theres no market value hike.

    Actually, if the 997 Turbo stands up to the expectations people have (or even better), I don't see many used Turbo available in the first year of production, at least not at much below MSRP. I even predict that over the first months after introduction, some people will need to pay a premium to get a new or slightly used 997 Turbo.

    It really depends on how succesful the Turbo is, it depends on the "coolness" factor and it depends on how much cars will be available in the first year of production.

    I doubt that you'll get a used 997 Turbo with low mileage below MSRP in the first year of production but like I said before, it really depends on expecations of customers and if the 997 Turbo really meets them.

    How long do I plan to keep my car? Well, since it is going to be a business car, I need to take a five year lease because the 997 Turbo won't be a bargain. Over the years, I'll try to add the powerkit and if not possible, some sort of other "upgrade" but nothing really spectacular, only just to keep up with the competition over the next few years.
