Thanks Onno. There is an agent here bit they are ostensibly simple cars. Chain driven cams, manual gearbox so hopefully it will be reliable.
On the Maserati side, the Granturismo is really useable. I have been a passenger in the rear and although I am not tall (1.81m), I was really comfortable. The DB9 is very pretty but I suspect the rear seats are pretty useless.
As an alternative, the 996 has rear seats and an anomaly with most of the South African 996 GT3s is that whilst it doesn't have rear seats, it has rear seat belts. This means that there is actually more space than in the standard 996. The rear seatbelts can be easily retro fitted to the GT3.
