A newly appointed member of FastGerman has purchased this fine example of a late 3.0 911 SC. Having spent some considerable time searching for service history, Porsche UK seem unable to help in our search due the car being registered prior to 1984 and that is how far their systems go back, so I’m told.

The ultimate garage is a petrol heads dream and must feature on any self-made millionaire’s ‘to-do’ list. Having read a number of forums and watched several TV shows on this subject, it seems the Ultimate Garage is more of a showroom. From Jay Leno’s garage to Nick Mason’s collection, they are all extremely impressive and I am very envious, but, where is the car lift and the tool boxes? Continue reading Ultimate Garage

Having experienced driving 3 x Panamera’s over the past couple of years; I thought it time to reflect on my initial thoughts about this car on UK roads.
The Panamera is 100% too big for the UK on country roads, villages and town centers. The only time I have found the Panamera experience enjoyable is driving long distances on motorways, here is the Panamera’s habitat.
Porsche – you need to do a ‘Macan’ on the Panamera – that would be near the top of my list. Continue reading Porsche Panamera Over Time
Our Classifieds section is now live, it’s currently in a basic form but functionality will be added over the coming months.
I’ve always wondered about car finance/lease/pcp and the reason why so few people review the rates of bank loans prior to this. For example – VWFS (Volkswagen Financial Services) who provide finance for Porsche also; are quoting 12% APR on a £25k car on their approved used site.
For a 48 month duration, HSBC will provide £25k at 3.9% APR, which translates into £562.60 pm and a total payment of £27,004.73 over 4 years. There are no additional booking fees on top of this.
The VWFS example on a £25k car is £580.29 pm, deposit of £2,499.90, acceptance fee of £155, option to purchase fee of £60 and a total amount of £30,568.82 paid.
Therefore a £3.5k saving with a bank loan – Worth considering ;-).
