Still, a coffee and a muffin is $10.
So it evens out.

It's mid 2018 and here in Australia, a manual 2006 991s (997.1) is US $80k

You can also get a 2016 manual M3 for US $70k - less than the 911 !!!

[SIZE="6"]WTF??? - there's no way that a 12 year old 997 is worth $10k more than a F80 in what looks like immaculate condition.

Interestingly, over the weekend, i saw an article in the local papers which indicated that luxury car sales are down nearly 10% on last year.
This might indicate that as the new car prices start to soften, so would the used car prices. After all, when there's not much difference between a new model and a used one, why not get a new one?

I still like the 911, but i can't see the value anymore.
It might not be worth it to you, but if someone is willing to pay that, then that's what it's worth.
well I did it!
I just pulled the trigger on a 2007 C2S silver with 24k miles.
Bought it sight unseen.
keeping the M4 - so I've got the best of both worlds

My 997 C4S back in 2011. Think of it as a swordfish wasabi, to the M4s steak and chips.

My new odd-weekend car (the M4's the even-weekend car) loaded up ready for the journey home

I still haven't seen it, so it will sort of be a surprise in a couple of weeks, when it arrives.

Coming from Sydney to Adelaide, which is 850 miles. I could have driven it over two days, about 15 hours in total, but the roads aren't very good and I didn't want to put nearly 1,000 more miles on it.

Congrats man. I am eyeing off a 997.2 S but a vert. Will be closer to $80KAUD here for about 50,000 KMS.
