"I feel I must write to you a letter that you may like to put to your customers. As you know I missed on a couple of your cars because of a car I was selling . However a lovely looking car came up on trade me .It was in North Auckland. I rang the older owner and found he had brought the car off a neighbour, I asked him about any rust problems . He said any rust that was there had been cut out and repaired properly. It had just been re upholstered and as the paintwork was original he had only the mudguards resprayed. It had new tyres and new wheel cylinders and brakes relined.As it had been in storage for 8yrs it had to be certified. But where he lived he said would pose a problem for getting it to the testing station. He said would I get it done from my end. He said everything had been done and it would fly through.I said I would and got it Transported to Palmerston North. When it arrived the first thing the transporter driver said was be carefull it has very poor brakes. Then takingit up a small rise to get it into my garage the clutch was slipping badly. The paint was far from original and the mudgaurds had been sprayed with an aerosol can . These are just a few problems with the car. I rang the seller up told him how disapointed I was and said if I transport it back to him will he refund my money. He said no. As all the dealings I had with him were on the phone and nothing in writing. My hands were tied. Not all Trade Me sellers are honest. Make sure you go to Waimak Classic Cars who I know deal in quality cars."Willy and Jan Whittingham, Palmerston North, New Zealand
Porsche's attempt to move away from its traditional roots with a range of front-engined sports cars in the 1980s proved disastrous. It wasn't that the cars were bad, it's simply that die-hard Porsche fans refused to accept anything other than a car with a rear-mounted air-cooled ‘boxer' engine and sales of the front-engined cars didn't get off the ground. With that sort of background the arrival of the Boxster in 1997 was a much anticipated event.

Porsches are generally one of the most bulletproof cars on the road. Many are kept locked away in garages during the week and only brought out on sunny days, but there are also plenty that are used day in day out as round town transport.
Porsches are easily the user-friendliest sports cars on the market. They are just as happy to trundle along in everyday traffic, as they are the blast along an open road at warp speed.
They also give very little trouble. There are plenty of old Porsches on the road with 200,000-plus kilometres showing on the odometer, I've even seen a mid-1990s 911 with more than 300,000 km clocked up. The bottom line is that Porsche are built to last, and they do that with admirable reliability.
Will be sold WOF'd and Registered.
