Default Where's The Love?

Is it just me, or does it seem like much of the talk and interest has waned somewhat on the early 930's? A few years ago it seemed that there was a lot of activity around these cars; nowadays not so much - or is it just my imagination?

For me, there always has and always will be love regardless if it is the 'in' car at the moment.

The "love" waxed and waned with market valuations. Most Porsche guys never really understood the early turbo's until they got valuable.

I think the value is kind of a two-edged sword - as the cars become more valuable they get used less, then their visibility decreases and we don’t hear much about the normal maintenance and use issues. Probably not too many of the early cars running around on the track these days because folks don’t want to risk an expensive car. It’s one thing when it’s a $25,000 car; quite another when it’s $100,000...

they came up in value.
But alot were dogs with fleas. They needed a lot of work. Scared a lot of people away and perhaps the market in general was due for a cool down.

Good cars still fetch money.
