75K miles on a 1995 911, is that OK or should I look somewhere else?

Asked by Sep 04, 2007 at 03:09 PM about the 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm looking at getting a older Porsche 911, between 1990 and 1995. I found a couple with high millage, around 75K miles. Assuming the car is in good shape is 75K miles on a 1995 911 considered "high millage" or is it "just breaking in?"

Hi there, A porsche with 75,000 miles on it would be considered high mileage in the world of Porsches. That being said the Porsche engines are typically good up to 200K before a major engine rebuild is required, but it all depends on how the car has been taken care of. I would insist on looking at the service records as well as having a Porsche shop take a look at it. It is worth the money.

I have now got nearly 130,000 miles on my 1996 993, with no major problems at all. Usual parts like brakes and tyres wear out, but the running gear and bodywork are great.

I have seen a number of '79 - mid '90s 911s with over 300K miles on them and no major rebuild or services have been required yet, but keep in mind that impeccable upkeep was done on those cars. I cant stress this enough, change the oil at most every 3K miles or youll never get that many miles out of it without having some very annoying oil leaks and such.Also you should change oil filters with every oil change and remember its not a Honda... dont drive it liike your first car lol

Don't buy it if you can't afford the up keep, I have customers who come in all the time and have flashy luxury cars trying to look good then I hand them the bill for repairs and they flip. Parts on these cars are expensive and even the simplest of parts are expensive.
