Summer weather has been rather disappointing here in the UK but Porsche sales have been steady during what is usually a quiet time of year. Air-cooled cars in the best condition continue to enjoy a strong following from both UK and overseas buyers. We’ve just added two 964 Turbos and two superb 993 Turbos (one in paint to sample Smoke Silver) to our showroom, so we will see how they fare.
As the wet end to July continued into August, we find ourselves with a few more drop tops than this time last year. The UK often gets a late ‘Indian summer’ as September arrives and, while our business does not rely on the weather gods, some late summer sun would give soft tops a bit of a boost. We’ve got fingers lightly crossed for warmer weather, but the cars are well priced and all easily amongst the best available, so no panic just yet.
Enquiries are already being received for Gen 2 991 GT3 and 991 GT2 RS models when they come to market. Rumours of £40k and £100k respective premiums over list may be well and truly undercooked: it will be interesting to see where asking prices start when the cars eventually arrive.
996 GT3 RS is still super hot and we’ve just added a superb 9k mile example to the showroom. Both 996 and 997 GT2s are also very desirable and we’ve just brought a superb 13k-mile 997 GT2 first owned by Eric Clapton into stock: that will definitely not hang around!
What we’re buying
We’re about to offer a nice Carrera GTS Coupe for sale and are always hunting top notch non-GT 911s. If you’ve got a bread-and-butter 911 coupe – Carrera 2 or 4 or any Carrera S model – we would be very interested in buying it.
We’ve got enquiries on all 996 and 997 Turbo cars and a lovely 30k-mile 996 Turbo coupe on the horizon, but we always want Turbo manual coupes – contact us if you are selling.
We never stop looking for top quality cars to satisfy existing enquiries. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss anything you might have available!
Upcoming changes at JZM Porsche
The next few months will be very busy at JZM, as we further extend our premises to add a storage facility and carry out other improvements across the property. Our regular communications will also be changing, to a quarterly email containing the market report, but more video content online. We hope our subscribers will enjoy the new formats.
