That confusion is NOT a good thing. If you total your car, you will get
only enough $$ to buy a coupe GT. If you damage one of those $950 front
fenders, you will only get the $50 a used coupe front fender costs too.
Fortunately/unfortunately my insurance company is more sophisticated. We
pay a little less than $1000 a year for insurance of the urq. This is for
a married 30 year old guy with no tickets and no accidents on his record
(that tree incident a couple years ago is not on my record since I wasn't
cited by a cop). And living in the lowest insurance cost sector of
Portland (if you live in Portland and can get a 97219 zip code, I recommend
When I last checked, insurance for 911 turbo or a 944 turbo was
significantly less than $1000 per year.
Don't get me wrong. I love my urq. Sure wish it were an AWD 944t though! ;)
