Regarding one's ability to "[s]et the reserve high enough," a friend recently tried to sell a limited edition 911 on BaT and the car was rejected by them because they thought his reserve was too high. Thus, I don't know what freedom a seller actually has on BaT to set the reserve where he/she sees fit. If BaT doesn't see eye-to-eye with you, then you're SOL as I understand it. Not sure I like someone else dictating to me what the reserve should be, although I can understand BaT's desire/motivation to sell cars and weed out sellers who have an unrealistic sense of what their car is worth.
I didn't know that but still even with that quite a few cars don't make reserve. I'm curious to see where this car ends up in any event.
And I agree of course; if they wouldn't let me set the reserve I wanted I wouldn't list there either.

Wow cheap, did have 20,000 miles though. Either way, wonder if that was above reserve... sounds like it was!

That's $88,200 with the 5% buyer's fee.
Seems reasonable. Good deal for both the buyer and seller.

That price seems about right given the auction setting, mileage, lack of CPO, and the options list for a $100.9K car. I bet it would've fetched mid to high $90K's if CPO with half the miles. Great color combo and the sought-after LWB carbon bucket seats. I can hardly bring myself to blink when I look at these cars for fear of missing something. They are so intoxicating.

Oh wow, didn't realize that. Alright. So half the mileage and CPO easily probably mid-high 90's with buyers fee.

Either way, agreed.... good deal.

Fair for buyer and seller considering mileage and properly optioned.

Curious to see if the buyer pops up here.

Seasonality also comes into play on a car like this.

I agree. If I lived in a warm weather area where I could have the top down all the time, I would have been first in line to buy one. The Spyder is about the best handling car that one can buy, regardless of price. I absolutely love the car, but I'm too dam lazy to fight that top.I got accustomed to just hitting a button.

Not with that many miles on the car. Don't think it's a great deal at all at $88k with the premium. Fair maybe, but not great.

Yep, mileage is the killer. I assume that the original buyer paid $102K for the car and it sold for $88K or about a 14% reduction in two years. I have a 2013 BS which cost me $65K after a significant discount. In 2015 I was offered $55K from a co-worker who fell in love with the car. That is about a 15% reduction in two years. The big difference was mileage. My car had only 3800 miles when the offer was made. I suspect that if the Spyder had only 3800 miles, the price would have been in the upper $90Ks.

There have been a few here for that price! I haven't seen a sale in awhile. A similar car at Porsche San Diego went for $97k w/CPO and 4,000 miles last week, so the price is ballpark. The market for the Spyder has definitely weakened.

I'd say the buyer made a killing.

I bought a 3 year old MB CLS550 with 6k miles on it (and the computer showed average speed since new of 19 mph) for 42% less than original sticker. And that was CPO.

Agreed. Car is two model years old now, new GT3 is out, and it's winter. I think it's expected (or should be anyway?).
