2007-reg Petrol, Owner for less than a year

Hard to tell given short time of ownership, however porsche are not known for making un-reliable cars. Considering the performance package the car offers and the type of driving I do in it economy isn't really a major factor for me, however my partner lives some 80 miles away so setting the cruise control on the motorway and seeing 26 mpg returned is a bonus, I do however come from a string of high bhp tuned japanese cars and a range rover v8, so it doesn't take much to impress me.

The only failure that has resulted in a breakdown was the battery dying - this was replaced and there have been no other problems. Given the performance of the car the fuel consumption is more than acceptable. tyres are expensive ~ ł1000 per set, the rears at ł600 per pair last about 12,000 miles. spare parts are not unreasonable given the premium nature of the car - comparable with audi and bmw.

MUCH MUCH Better than I even expected.
This car costs no more than newer second hand saloon/hatch, but it makes almost every journey a pleasure, people smile when you drive past & it looks great even in a car park.
There is also an added advantage... Anyone who gets in the way and wants to act a fool, quickly dispatched to a position behind the 911 very quickly & easily.

Performance, handling, braking excellent. Ride reasonable, but seats not adjustable enough for long drives. After only 7000 miles and 3 years there was an oil leak (£1000 but free) and a water leak (£400 only 50% covered by Porsche). Not good enough for a £74k car at that mileage after being well looked after. Previous Porsches were much cheaper and more reliable.

Not owned very long. previous car of same type was very reliable, only one issue in 4 years. For the performance it gives I have no complaints. parts are quite reasonably priced, but labour ratesat main dealers are excessive at over ł100 per hour.

I've had one intermittent fault, porsche cleared it the first time and its appeared twice since and then cleared itself. Its expensive, but its a high performance car, it's probably pretty much what I expected - but you do need deep pockets.

One problem with the high pressure fuel pump but porsche fixed it free of charge under warranty. Everything is expensive, tyres do not last long, insurance etc but I did understand this in buying a performance car.

911 Absolutely Brilliant ............. its a smile every time I get in it.

I have a BMW 118D for everyday use which I do 20,000 miles a year in ... my 911 is for the pleasure of driving.

No issues to stop the car working, only annoying oil leaks. It's a 911, so not exactly a ford. fixed service costs from porsche main dealers helps though.

I've had no problems with 6500 miles on the clock. It's a sports performance car so the fuel consumption wasn't that much of a consideration when buying.
