Base 2018 Porsche 911

So I am currently looking for a 911 open to anything between a 2007-2018. I've been looking at used leasing, used financing, and now I am considering this lease price.

It seems the pretty cheap base price (relatively) of a 911 and nothing ridiculously out of the ordinary makes its decent. Adding kilometers and even 4wd isn't too crazy.

1299$ and 10k down.

Used Porsche 2017 prices are coming up higher for example.

the thing about Porsche is when they say base they really mean base.
Not even sure you get the steering wheel standard these days.

If he only cares to drive, why not? If I had the money, I would just add led lights and some performance bits. Don't care for navigation, heated/power seats, etc.

Someone on the forum is willing to lease an 89K car with 5k down for 1500/month. It's good deal to put 10k down to lease a 105k car for 1299/month. Op, where are you getting your numbers from?

Why are you wasting $1300 a month on a Porsche lease? Trying to impress someone?

No I think I could save money by getting like BMW or something. Purely for the joy of driving.

Look into Porsche 918 instead of 911

This seems actually very good. Wonder what a 4s comes up to.

The back seat of a 911 is good for golf clubs and that’s about it

Do it OP.
If it wasn't for family obligations, I'd be driving around in a Porsche also.

+1, this is why they make a panamera or a m5. So you can baby and drive.

2007 - 2018 is a huge range... you're basically looking at 997.1 / 997.2 / 991.1 and 991.2 ... Do you even know the difference between the 997 vs the 991? Have you researched the cost of ownership on avg for the year? For the 997.1's have you researched IMS / Bore score? What I suggest is knowing exactly what you want to spend. Knowing the model you want. Narrowing the year you want. Then go from there.

I recently went through something similar. Was looking for a 2009-2012 911 originally and started looking around October 2016. Eventually found a really good deal in Montreal (I'm in Ontario) on a 2013 Carerra with very little options. It's about as base as you can get and does without things like the power seats, Sport Chrono etc. But it was the colour I wanted, it was manual and came with CPO warranty from the dealer. Manual is getting harder and harder to find so this was pretty much my unicorn.

I wasn't considering leases so can't really comment on that, but I can tell you that the rear seats work just fine for my 11 year old. They're not ideal for adults, but not completely useless either. Also I'd tighten your search parameters by looking at 2009+ In 2009, the 997 was updated and there's quite a few nice changes including a new engine design.

Good luck! Like you I was looking for the joy of driving, and to try the rear engine layout for a change.

Oh, also a forum like Rennlist will be a great resource, I wish I had used it more before buying. There's a thread in there that covers 99% US cars but they talk about good deals in the used market.

Do have some legless friends you want to put in the back? Or maybe a toddler? It's not really a usable 4 seater. If you need 4 usable seats you'll need the Panamera. May as well get a Cayman and have more fun and save some coin.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
