On the plus side, Carfax indicates just 1 owner...

If someone living in FL near this dealer check it out and tell us all.
Less than $30K for C2S? Where were you when I was looking???
Is this too good to be true? Isn't WHITE suppose to have the most powerful engine next to Polar Silver?
Tan interior, most of us can live with I think...
Chrome wheel can probably be replaced easily...

If "overrated" = "worth $30K less" than you are correct.

As a daily driver I would have bought it also.

From the research I performed, it was maintained at Porsche of Orlando. I also read here in Rennlist that opportunities like this come by once in a blue moon so I jumped on it. The chrome wheels actually look good and the tires all are brand new. I am looking for an original CDR 210 to replace the Blaupunkt/Ipod/Xm radio that’s installed. It also has a front and rear radar that's going out. The 86k mileage did not bother me that much. I had seen cars with less mileage that the previous owner should have been shot for lack of maintenance among other things.
KBB!!!!!
Congratulations...you probably bought the cheapest C2S ever transacted (so far as I can acascertain anyway). I actually called the dealer this morning (it was closed yesterday when I posted) to get more details as I was getting my head wrapped around buying a tip car with chrome wheels and cashmere interior (far from ideal for me) and he told me it was sold and picked up yesterday. He also told me it was impeccable as you described. Enjoy it in good health and post pics as soon as you can!!!

There was a supercharged C4S that sold a few months back for $27K+. Not a C2S but still a WB.

I drove manuals for about 30 years or so..you can still row with the tip, just not side to side..lol

Can't see myself driving a tip either but at that price/condition my expectations clearly loosen up. What were the details on the C4S? Sounds as though there might have been issues? If so, were they related to the superchargers?

Great example of a good value on a nice C2S. Good to see, from a buyers prospective, not so good for those who are selling. Those not selling, it shouldnt make a bit of difference.

Sometimes car prices remind me a of the mortgage fraud/home values that goes on quite a bit today. "Get in quick, you will miss out before it goes up" Try to inflate the value, over appraise it, get people to buy into the hype, and the next thing you know you just relaized you bought the hype and now your F$%^*. Not really screwed but you drank the cool-aid. And then you see this C2S for like $30k and say "Oh my God, I cant believe it." Its an ego buster for some. Patience pays off when buying.

Ok, cars and homes are two opposiste sides of the spectrums but they generally are the 2 biggest purchases people tend to make and emotions play quite a bit in both.

I doubt this is an ego buster.....this car is no more a valid comp to a low mileage example than a house in Michigan is a comp to Greenwich, Ct.

A real estate analogy? No way. Not sure which one's worse--the original or yours.

Car values don't behave in any way like house values.
