456 maintenance costs

We have found a lovely 30000 mile 1997 456GTA, Going for PPI this week.
Here's the question
Given that the maintenance will be brought up to date and that no major problems arise at the PPI... what should we expect the average yearly maintenance budget to be? We will be driving the car once or twice weekly, highway driving mostly.... I'd guesstimate roughly 3000 miles/year.

Hi Steve,

If its close to what I've been told for my F355, I'd say $1-2k a year on maintainence, and around $3-4k for the 3 yr maintainence, (please correct me otherwise). But of course that's scheduled maintainence, it doesn't take into account unexpected repairs,,.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS - black with orange accents - wife's car
F355 Berlinetta - Giallo Modena, 6-speed manual, carbon sport seats -recently traded in

Mike- That is about correct, closer to $1K for annuals, and does not include tires, which usually last 6-10K miles. The 456 does need to have the valve clearances checked every 15,000 miles, but that can line up with the 3-5 year belt changes. If your car has the late tensioner pulley brackets, no reason belt changes cannot be made at 5 year intervals, like the 575M.

if you can go for the scooter SR hoses. yours sounds like a newer model and less miles so I think not many problems ....for now .

Darn phone spelling checker. That would be Helm's Scuderia Rosa Innovation hoses. Not scooter.

Having to 'dump' the 456 so posting this vid for the future buyer who wanted to see it from all angles and in action. Me in the Mondial T and she in the 456. Taken in CA on way to Sacramento WAY before it was unlawful to use cells while driving.

Gonna' miss that car.
