Thought I could sneak that GT2 in here, guess not

I'll keep looking.

Sad to say but that thing belongs in a museum. It's too bad there were so few made.

This one. They came down significantly on price. I plan on keeping it for 5-10 years and driving it about 2-3k per year. I wanted a really solid, low mileage car with complete service history and this one had it.

Even though it was just what I was looking for, I wasn't game at anywhere close to the asking price. They were very reasonable dealing on the price and we came to terms. The seller is located about 800 miles from me, so I will either fly in and drive it home, or trailer it with my truck (depends on the weather)!

Since I keep my cars for a long time, I always get the nicest one within my budget. Value is what I go for- a nice, solid car at a reasonable price.

Oh, and it even came with both keys!

Sweet - two keys. That part of their ad made me chuckle. That's a really striking color combo. Not that it's your primary concern, but I bet when the time does come to sell that you don't lose a dime on it. I think all of the 996's are hitting the bottom of their depreciation curve. I'm not saying that they will begin to appreciate any time soon, but I truly believe that now is the time to buy any one of the varieties of 996.
That being said, most of us don't buy as an investment, so enjoy the heck out of that beautiful car. Mine makes me smile every time I see it. Congratulations!

Thanks. I buy to drive and enjoy, but with an eye on not taking a big hit on resale. I have been on the sidelines watching patiently for a couple of years, and I agree that it seems to be a good time pick up a nice 996TT or GT3.

Congratz on your find!

Agree with kcatattorney. I've also been in the hunt for a 996tt for a while now, and have noticed 996tt prices have definitely bottomed out on the depreciation curve; comparatively 997tt appeared to have leveled out for a while as well, but I've noticed 997tt prices have actually started to drop the past few months. Not sure if it's seasonal or for what reason.

I have a PPI being conducted next week on a 996tt, so we'll see what happens

What do you guys think this one is worth? Definitely not the $59k price tag, but if it was under $50k, I would be seriously considering it.

I assume that's Canadian dollars on that cabriolet.

They can't quite seem to make up their mind if it's a coupe or a cab- but the pictures kind of give it away...

Loonies and kilos I would guess.

I called on that one while I was searching. Single owner, low miles, very well maintained- but seemed a bit high on pricing to me. I think it would be a very nice buy at a lower price point.

I don't think that price is far off. I paid over $50k to a dealer/flipper for an X50 with similar mileage.
