Why Not to Buy a Porsche – The Worst Sports Car


rev up your engines!Porsche’s they’re beautiful cars, they have great handling and quickacceleration, and today I’m going to tell you why you should never buy one, a customer of minejust purchased this one as a toy, he paid about $7000 for it, it’s only got68 thousand miles on it and it looks beautiful, but somebody paid over fiftythousand dollars for this car when it was brand new, so why oh why did it lose 43thousand dollars of its 50 thousand dollar value, when it still looks so goodand still runs decently, and here comes the answer, it’s got a mid-engine whichis great for handling, but horrible for repair, as you can see in this picturethe engine is way up front here in the middle, it’s very hard to work on, youcan’t even see it without taking a body off, so in an actual car that’s allhidden way down in here, say something like a water pump goes out and when welook under the car, needless to say there’s not too much working room upthere in the engine, this thing is really something to work on when you have anengine problem, well in a normal car with the engine in the front, I can do mostwater pumps in an hour or so, might cost you two or three hundred bucks, but on thisthing, just changing out a water pump is going to cost you well over a thousanddollars, and literally that’s just the tip of the iceberg, I had a customer with a911 Porsche, it needed two catalytic converters, and the bill would have beenover seventy four hundred dollars to replace them, he just got rid of the carinstead, now yes they aren’t really fun cars to drive and my customer was smart, hegot a standard transmission, because they’re pretty reliable but theautomatics, they’re very unreliable as they age and cost a fortune to rebuildand while they do corner and drive quite well, they actually have a very roughride, especially with these low profile tires, every time I get one and I’m doneroad testing it, I asked my wife if she wants to go for a ride, she says nothanks I hate those things they ride like go-karts, now if your looking forstyle, hey this might be for you, a lot of people say they’re beautiful lawnornaments, now Janis Joplin sang about how all her friends drove Porsches, butreally, following Janis Joplin’s lifestyle may not be sucha smart choice, and remember if you’ve got any car questions just visit theScotty Kilmer channel,so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember toring that Bell!
