I would say that the gap is closer to $40k if both cars are ultra low mileage (less than 10k miles).

That is true. ‘S’ is now overused; just like ‘M’ on BMW’s.

Back to some real cars: https://www.jbamotors.com/2005-Porsc...esa-AZ/6559041

This is a real 2005 Turbo S, with the techno rims, which many value.

I drove this last weekend and it ran nearly perfect, but it was just a little rough. Just some minor wear inside but no major scratches. It had an original half clear bra but the left fender clearbra was removed as the dealer said it started to peel so they removed. It. The car had a few knicks, but the headlights has some wear and micro scratches which tell me it may have been left outside. I could not get past the color either, just not for me. The x50 tip turbo lag is a real thing, but it's a beast once spooled up. I think it's priced accordingly.

In certain circumstances I would agree.

When you say it runs a little rough are you talking a hesitation or miss? Or something else?
Just curious, I'd like a cab at some point.

I remember seeing that color first appear on a 993 turbo ad that said 'Kills bugs fast'... I wrote Porsche and they sent me a poster of it.

Poor wording on my part...the mechanicals were nearly perfect other than the x50 tip turbo lag; the interior and exterior were just a bit rough for a 40K mile car by my standard, not bad but just not good enough. I would say decent driver quality.

Ok. Good you could test drive it.
​​​​ I like it, but I need another Porsche like a hole in the head. The tip doesn't bother me, I have several manual shifters now.

I decided to fill my need for a Cab by going with a drop top other than a Porsche, because like you I didn't need another Porsche. I've owned the Cab I have now for over ten years, and have no plans of ever getting rid of it.

I say it depends. Mileage is only part of the story, more so the higher in miles you go. If the 95k miles S was a one-ownerz OCD maintenance with every receipt for every gas fill and impeccably maintained, I'd take that any day over a 60mile or even lower non-s with unknown history which has been flipped many times over.

I'd probably take a 100k mile OCD car over a leap-of-faith 40k mile, even, for the same price.

15 year old original rubbers. Wow.
All that power and potential, and it just sat and sat.

It’s best for the next fool to collect and let sit for another 15 years, till the tires permanently stick to the garage floor.
