    Is this possible with a watercooled porsche automobile ??

    ...a living example with high mileage (>100K miles) and low to modest maintenance??

    If no then maybe being a "garage queen" is not good for these cars. What do you think?

    Zedd06,

    Welcome to the site.

    I think it depends on how you drive. If you are hard on the car, it may not last that long. If you do a lot of highway driving, around 70-80 mph, and if you maintain it properly with the oil and changes of various filters, it could easily last longer than 100K.

    I had that kind of experience with a '92 Ford Taurus SHO. I just junked the car last November, with nearly 303,000 miles on it, most of them highway. Maintenance costs were high, but still a lot cheaper than getting a new, or even a good used, car. Frankly, that's what helped me save enough to get a 911S.

    So take care of your car by maintaining it properly. The rest is a function of your driving.

    I think there is no problem if you let the engine heat up properly before to push, and if you do the services as often as adviced.

    A hard (but well) driven 911 should last at least 150 000 km(94 000 miles) without ANY major problem.

    Mine had 140'000 km over 2 years ago:

    At 217'000 km, an oil leak would have cost mucho to be fixed, so I spent a bit more and got a new engine.

    I'm now at about 235'000 km. Running strong...
