Hi Newbie so please be gentle
I personally like the idea of the V6 but good examples seem to be rare, so is it that much better than the others? (looking to spend up to say £12,500)
Hi, welcome to the forum.
Given your budget are you looking to buy a 916 Spider (late 90's / early 00's) and have a LOT of change, or do you want to get one of the latest designs, the 946 (triple headlights)?
This section of the website is all about the 916 variant and these are usually under £3000 in a private sale. There are exceptions to this, but these are specialist dealers.
The used car market is sluggish at the moment, so it is a good time to buy.
The V6 is a nice to have, obviously the fuel consumption will be higher than that of the 2.0 TS, but hey, it's a V6!
Let us know if it is a 916 or 946 that you are after.
I am selling my 916 2.0 in the classifieds / ebay - you are welcome to come round and have a look, even if you have no intention of buying.
