In my journey to find a replacement for my ‘13 Focus ST, I’ve come to the realization that a 911 isn’t that unattainable. It would of course have to be a ‘low tier’ 911 ala 996 or 997.1 C2 maybe C2S.

I’d have to finance a portion, which pretty much precludes buying privately...which means a 3.2 or a 964 are out of the question. There are quite a few good looking 996/997.1 (without closer inspection) cars at dealerships that would be within budget. But this raises the question:

Even after a generally positive PPI, would you buy a used 911 from a dealership (either from a Porsche dealership or an indie dealer)?

Edit: and why?
