The real question is are people buying these cars at those prices? If so we all need to ride the wave. My daughter wants to do cheerleading and I just got some prices back on uniforms, training etc.

^ Based on his signature, I think he owns it.

Remember fellas, we aren't going for bargains in this thread. The argument is that we aren't basing the market on the smoking good deals. We are looking at the very top portion of the market and what someone can expect, on average, to pay for a top end car.

Great deals should be posted in the Craigslist thread.
Stephencs601 - I would like to hear more details on your car. Could I ask you to post it here, though?:

Mark - Sorry, just noticed the question in your post. See the immediately preceding post for the purpose of this thread.

Basically, if your primary concern is the highest quality 996tt you can find and you really don't care about spending a little more in order to have a top notch buying experience, what cars are out there on the market? Price is a secondary or even tertiary factor. Some people are not interested in trying to get cheapest deal. Or going to extreme lengths to squeeze the last dollar out of a seller. Or take a risk on a car because it may have an unknown provenance. It is absolutely true that one major repair on a bargain basement 996tt can push the actual or effective purchase price up into the range of the top tier of cars. So, some people prefer to focus on the top end of the market. That's who this thread is for.
Personally, I'm generally more of a bargain basement shopper for most significant purchases (I suspect that isn't a shocker). But there is wisdom in the opposite. As John Ruskin said:

“It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When
you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay
too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you
bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The
common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a
lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well
to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will
have enough to pay for something better.”

The former owner of the shop I posted from is a mate of mine... and yes they do sell for the posted prices.

Gorgeous indeed. Interesting that the rest of that dealer's inventory seems to be sub-$10k hondas and pickup trucks.

What year did they change turbo headlights, or were they always like mk2 996? Never mind I just searched 2001 pics.
