Is the guide worth the money? For under $35 (less than ?20) it may save you buying a lemon and getting conned out of thousands. If it saves you from having a no hoper inspected....or saves one wasted journey to look at an inaccurately described 911 it is  money well invested.

What is in the guide? The manual contains the tips and techniques that I have learnt from actually buying 100's of Porsche year in, year out, not just theory....practical, real life tips that you can easily apply. Each 911 guide is different, all models have their quirks and weaknesses. 

Why not get a professional inspection? Before arranging a professional inspection you will need to identify the right Porsche, otherwise you can waste hundreds. Using the guide means you don't have to totally rely on the inspection.

Buying a Porsche from someone you great, but everyone can make a it still pays to know what you are doing, even if only to confirm your judgement of the person with the Porsche 911 for sale.

Magazine buyers guides  are unlikely to be able to cover the subject in detail and are often compiled from various different sources. I have seen some pretty dodgy advice written.

Worldwide. The principles and information are relevant wherever you are looking for a 911. I have customers successfully using the guide all over the World.
