    An Amazing Collection for a Dealership!

    Possibly the top Dealer in the UK - have you been there Iain?

    Also has an interesting take on the 997.2 - last true Porsche before VW stepped in!!

    Great video; really enjoyed watching it. Thank you for sharing.

    Good link, thanks. Surprised by his 997.2 stock piling, first dealer I see doing that. Curious to see if he’s right...

    Thank you for the video.!

    Hexagon is a long standing London dealership, previously known as Hexagon of Highgate.

    Amazing collection full of nostalgia for the good times.Even the horse sculpture looks attractive to me.

    As to the 997.2 I agree that it will be a 911 to be a lot in demand as a used young-timer in the years to come. Will these cars acquire Classic status? On the basis of production numbers (76.000) no one can expect big money in the short or medium term but those that will survive in pristine condition will be cherished by enthusiasts.

    I'm left wondering if my 997.2 GTS,  the very last model in the 997 line, will be worth hanging on to - in the light of comments made in the video? yes

    I don't think 991 or 992 offer something significantly more than your car. The 997.2 esp. the GTS combines the new with the old very well. It is a modern car but with some of the rawness of older 911s. Moreover the older car's size and shape are more attractive.

    Have been to Hexagon. A superb place to hang out for a few hours and the salespeople are genuine car folk.

    My 5 year plan is to pick up a 997 from Hexagon or equivalent and store in in London for Euro road trips in the future.

    That's a very wise plan for enjoying one's life.

    They are always significantly overpriced. I was more than underwhelmed by the service too.
