North of the border with 9k kilometers for about 130-135k at a dealer.
Pretty sure US pricing about the same, 5-10% difference.

Thanks TS.

So you think that the car, referred to in OP, be worth (at say 5% difference) US$ 125-130!

Interesting! Thought 09' GT2, brand new really, would fetch US$145-150. Even if it were basic specs.

Well he did say with 9k miles. The one you describe has no miles. May or may not be a good thing..

Quick and dirty- Autotrader lists about 6 cars right now, lowest $129,997, highest $155,000, all 2008s. Add two factors- extreme low mileage and one model year newer, and I would say the asking price could be around a minimum of $160k, assuming a $145k 2008 value with $15k extra for the model year. Note, that is asking price- sold price is as low as the seller is desperate or as high as the buyer is willing to go.

Rodsky, Mepps. Thanks.

Nick. I wouldn't be wrong if I described you as 'expert' on all things 997 GT2.

May I ask: given the opportunity (and cash), to get such car as described above. How much you be willing to pay for it?

If it were white or some other exciting color (say silver, blue) I would say it's worth around the $150 range. But Ruby Red is not a good choice of color on this awesome car. Hence more conservative estimate, giving it worth $140, tops. IMHO !

Unless there is another, brand new like, 09 GT2, on sale by a Porsche dealer somewhere, may never know the true worth this car.

Aaaah, complicating what should be simple matter...if it were not for short pocket

i agree nick, as with anything....its worth what someone is willing to pay. that color of red is interesting....could be one of only a few gt2's 08 or 09 in that color....maybe the only 09? but once again....whats someone willing to pay and whats the seller willing to take?

Unique is not always a good thing... Ruby red is not my first choice either, but there's no accounting for taste, what I don't like someone else may love. As they say in the car biz, there's an *** for every seat. Preferred unique paint color ADDS $5K in my book, but there's no accounting for undesirable paint since I've never thought about it. Nonetheless, color can't be a big deterrent here since we're discussing it.

I think having a 2009 has certain advantages- 3.0 PCM, slightly updated switchgear, warranty, etc. It's not a deal breaker either way for me, but extreme low mileage is not necessarily a good thing.

One thing going for a used GT2 purchase- these things are underappreciated by the general public and enthusiasts alike, so resale prices will always be depressed, and that's always in favor of the subsequent buyers.

Plus you may have to factor what issues an almost 3 year old car may have with no miles? I'd almost factor in the costs to correct those off what you are willing to pay. I'd personally rather have an 09 with 10,000 miles and a clean PPI. So in the end , probably around $140-$145. But someone may come along who loves ruby red and wants a 0 mile 2009, just because.

Have to agree, buying a car that sat for 3 years, may not be the best choice. Not my favorite colour as well.
Whichever you choose the car is brilliant, IMHO
Best value in the current Porsche offering.
