Can anyone recommend an insurer please for a 2003 996 Turbo Coupe? 3,000m p/a. Not a daily driver. 'Joe Normal' Aged 44

So far my likely candidates based on 993 experience don't want to quote - and the TIPEC magazine doesn't seem to have helped neither. Think I've tried Hagerty, Heritage etc etc

THANK YOU (in advance)

I'm currently with Admiral for £500 a year, but C.V.I. told me to phone them at renewal time as they should be able to help me.

Thanks Lee. Sub £500 my target too. 993 was sub £300 but "that's different" as they say

In that case I can not see why you can't get the car on a reasonable classic policy unless you are over valuing it?

Cherished Vehicle Insurance (CVI) are usually very competitive on 996 and Boxster. :)

Is 2003 a 'classic' now then? :dontknow: I used to insure my '96 993 with Hagerty, until they decided '96 was not old enough!

My 2004 996 is on a Classic Policy and has been for the 3 years I have owned it. :)

Ah maybe they base the classic bit on the driver and not the car then :wink:

Hiya Geebeeman, have you tried Classicline? they insured my Boxster for around £800 when the nearest competitor was quoting £1350. I know this sounds expensive but I had just wrote off a 944S (my fault) and had only had a car license for four years.
