Beautiful car, and a Testarossa next to it! Quoted the photo because I love dark blue Ferraris.You beat me to it. 550 Maranello, with the gated shifter that goes clackity clack when you row the gears, please.
i was just at a shop that specializes in some of these things...

This is Pozzi Blue (my favorite, a non metallic dark blue) with the Bordeux red interior, so I have not just the model, but the specific example in mind of the “worth a stretch” car.
I’ll more likely than not wind up with an air cooled 911 at some point, since those are reasonable, but the Ferrari here is perfect if possible.
Porsche of Warrington had a nice 996 turbo for sale a few years ago in silver/black with under 40k miles for $35k or thereabouts. When I test drove it, it was so boring to drive that I passed. I think you need to go the DeckMan route and convert it to RWD and give it a set of Ohlins coilovers before it becomes "sports car" like. It's a fast, cushy GT in stock form, but really boring.Yeah, prices are definitely on the upswing, though you can still find some reasonably priced if you're ok with miles. But yeah, these aren't the rumored $45k 996 turbo of years past. If you find a 991 that puts a smile on your face and that you can afford, it's a great choice. The thing with 911s it seems is that they transcend years and miles. It's basically about finding one that fits your interests and passion.
