From what I understand, it varies largely dependent on the condition of the engine. Only way to get a good idea is to talk to someone at Sharkwerks directly.

Someone on here is selling a 30-40k mile Pumpkin for $130k. Doug at Switchcars has a 997.1 GT3RS, Black with Orange Graphics for $160k. He could also help you find what you are looking for. Just watch what you buy, plenty of good cars out there but plenty of bad ones that I wouldn't want to touch. Get a good PPI and paint meter on it at the least. Plenty of cars with undisclosed damage and clean carfax reports.

Iíve got Doug looking for me. Also looking on my own. Learned to get a current DME, repair history and Carfax and to do some digging. Iíve already seen one for sale with a clean carfax but undisclosed damage.

Btw, this forum has been a huge help.

Sounds like you are doing everything right. Best of luck with the purchase.

What are your order of color preferences and options?
I would be happy to forward on if something may be the right fit for you...

Q for everyone - and sorry, not meant to hi-jack!

Any idea on value of a 2007 GT3RS pumpkin w/1200 miles?

Colors. Since it was asked, I would prefer white, silver, grey/black in that order. Pumpkin is a maybe. Condition is more important to me than options and to some degree, color, at this point. Higher mileage is fine. In fact, might be preferable considering Iím planning on sending the car to Sharkwerks.

Thanks for any help you all can give in my journey to find the ďright ď car.

Selling price, as long as condition is as good as the low miles (no overrevs/paintwork), I would say $180-200k.

07-08 White, Silver, Black in that order. Orange is a maybe. Green unlikely. But again, condition for the mileage is the most important.

Green can't be had for a good car at a price to make this reasonable. On .1s you'll do best with black or silver and once the orange is removed (just my opinion) you may have the best colors for the best price. Check out Spyrexs silver .1 sans graphics / orange. Looks awesome. Perfect.
