Default 997.1 turbo

Good night All
i am looking at buying my first Porsche. To be exact a 997.1 Porsche 911 turbo 2008.
After much research I found a 2008 911 turbo with 86k on it asking price is 66k and it is Tiptronic.
No modifications.
Any advice and words of wisdom from my new Family.

This is the wrong forum, but I've just gone through purchasing a later 911 and that price seems high for what you are describing. Autotrader might give you some comparables.

That actually seems a bit high of a price for a tiptronic with 86k miles. Would say lower $60s for that example, unless it is a very high optioned car.

I've had a 2001 996 Turbo Tip (just 28k miles, happens to be for sale) and have loved every minute. Can't comment on pricing for the 997 Turbos as I haven't tracked them in quite a while but I found that the 996 Turbo delivers 95% of the fun, with the same Mezger block, at a lower point of entry and is now on the upswing in prices as we approach the 25 year mark on the model. Heck of a car either way!

since it is 66k CDN it works out to 50.5KUSD

Price seems fair for a tip, cab with those miles. 50,000USD seems about market.
