I bet the vast majority of Porsche owners still trade their cars in at wholesale prices when they are ready to move on. Selling a car yourself is a PITA and most folks would rather just take the hit and let the dealers do their thing.

agree. selling at least hi mileage modded turbo is not worth doing yourself if at all possible to avoid.

Yes, just look at mobile.de and also other countries, values are very high, even for cars with 60k> miles.

I think something that's really interesting is that the cars are not only showing up in some of these higher end auctions and not just going through without bids, they are getting snatched up.

Regarding the higher mileage cars. I believe that there is a big difference between a well documented and maintained higher mileage car vs a high mileage car without up to date maintenance. If a seller doesn't want to take the time to present the car as best as possible with records, receipts, etc, and has no patience to sell themselves then of course they will be getting less for their cars since the dealer or wholesaler has to make money, no way around that ( and of course they will sell them for more than they paid).

I found two more 996TT. These are from 2015 Russo & Steele Auctions.

Please note that the silver one is a Tiptronic and has a mileage discrepancy in the documents that are displayed in the auction listing. Carfax shows 20,200 miles in 2012, service document shows 22,844 in 2013, and then 22,352 miles in a service document from 2014.


Russo & Steele Jan 2015
Lot 2245
2002 911 Turbo
Tiptronic
23,000 (claimed) mileage discrepancy
SOLD - $44,000

Russo & Steele Jan 2015
Lot 2544
2003 911 Turbo (MANY MODS + Evoms GT700)
manual
41,000 miles
SOLD - $57,200

that would be me! i maintain my car bi-weekly needed or not professionally, although admittedly some of the things done to my car such as MAKING a hose to replace an intake one needed might make some squeamish, but i keep no records, and know my car is as mechanically sound and parts as new and within acceptable spec as can possibly be for a car with 132,500 miles.

i just sure wouldn't wanna be there guy standing there answering craigslist tire kicker calls if I were selling LOL. just shoot me

In the past when the transatlantic discrepancies have occurred Europe starts shipping cars over there. Has anything changed to alter this?

lmao, I hear you. Well there's always ebay or one of these auction houses above. There does seem to be an interest in these cars. Mine's not for sale, I don't think yours is either right?? So we can just sit around (drive around) and observe

HELL to the NO, sell?? for what? its like a nickel on the paid dollar lol. and those that care about me wont let me even take the hit to turn into the 997.1, but i am my own boss so we shall see..

my issue is my cars take such cosmetic nicks/dings/rocks/boulders etc, that it doesn't make "sense" for me to have a "street pretty cars and coffee" head turner, because i drive the snot out of it and there's a LOT of debris in unpopulated canyon two lane blacktops.

you know what i mean. i'm afraid even to upgrade/paint the front for fear it'll last a week w perfect paint no nicks etc! its like,.. do i wanna DRIVE IT!??.. or stare at it?! lol cheers!

That's why you can wrap it, it does a pretty good job at protecting the car.

i almost wish i was back east so i could justify garaging it for half the year! lol

it's just funny, though, as i was just saying ( to myself lol ) that the condition of most everyones cars here from that picture thread is incredible! and to get mine back in any kind of shape like they look, it's gonna take FULL paint and some minor body work! so can YOU tell me? how do one does spend 10k on a car worth 25?! i mean cosmetically? if i needed a MOTOR of course, i'd do it in a heartbeat

now it's like every new ding is beginning to make me crazy. so can anyone help? whats new paint on a car cost these days? anyone know? done "reasonably" not showroom, just a good ( not earl scheib lol ) but ya know.. decent? probably 8k done right? yeah...?!

just thinkin' about it drives me ( even more ) nuts
