Default 08 Turbo



Thinking of selling my nicely optioned 6 speed. Under 4500 miles. Looks and smells like it just came out of the showroom. What is a realistic number I can list it for?
Thanks

To bad you can’t keep your beautiful low mile 997.1, in a few more years, there are those that believe they’ll begin to appreciate. A low mile version like yours will be even more highly desirable. Realistically, this spring I believe your 08 would sell between $82K-$86K. Asking more than $86K may have you waiting a little longer. It does have very nice options, except for no ceramic brakes which tends to add to the resale value. If that’s an aftermarket exhaust, it can be a plus or minus, not to mention if it has a tune. The low miles and excellent cond is your marketing focus. Personally, I’d put the stock wheels on it and sale the aftermarket ones separately, you’ll make more $$$$.
Make sure you list it with some damn good pictures...focusing on the 997.1 TT.
Best of Luck...JB

Nice car. I'd be interested.

Also, what type of lift/stands are those?

Gorgeous car.... Shame it didn't get driven more.

You can list it for whatever you want, but IMHO I doubt you'll find a buyer much over $80K, maybe a few grand more if you include the second set of wheels. Shame, because if you had driven it for 25K miles or so, you'd still get $70K+ for it.

Should be a beautifully spec'd Harley V-Rod if I am not mistaken. Bonus points if the owner bought it knowing that Porsche designed the engine for it.

Did you use GR Customs for the parts? That's who I used when I had my 2013 V-Rod Nightrod Special. Awesome bike, put 13k miles on it in a year and a half! Now I have my Ducati XDiavel S with the Termignoni full system and man..that baby is hard to beat!

Wow, what a car and with a perfect spec. I am guessing you could list for high $80s and have it sell for low $80s. Due to mileage and build. Finding a clean 997.1 Turbo is not always easy anymore. You could even call around and see what Holt Motorsport or RAC Performance would give you if you want a seamless transaction without dealing with a private sale.

Looks great makbros, nice options too. Almost certainly would have bought this had you listed about 2.5 months sooner. I ended up with a low mileage ‘09 Turbo in Atlas Grey. If you don’t mind me asking why the sale?

In terms of value $80-85k, if not more, would be my estimate. Looks like a lovely example.
