Personally, if I was going to spend that sort of dosh on a vintage Porsche, it would be for the following reasons:

A/ I have deep pockets
B/ I am an enthusiast
C/ A + B = I can afford an 'as new' 993 resplendent with that new Porsche smell.
D/ I drive it just like a normal car and enjoy every second.
E/ Because of A/ I can keep it tip-top forever!
F/ I couldn't care less about the thing depreciating as I'm having too much fun with my new 993
Grin


Exactly this. I'd drive it lots and not care that it may be worth less money. And I'd rather have this over a Turbo.

Pointless buying a low mileage car and not using it, however it happens all the time now. In 2006 we bought a 1987 Mercedes 300SL ( R107) with 7003 miles for £22k, my first foray into classics, after 11 years the mileage is still relatively low at 25,000 and its value has rocketed. A 20,000 mile example has just sold at a dealer for close to £67k. We never bought it as an investment but it nice to know that if we ever sold it's value has increased significantly.

As a consequence of getting a low mileage car the benefits are reflected in firstly the condition, the bodywork will need no attention, secondly the interior should be un-marked, thirdly as long as servicing has taken place you can rest assurred reliability is, well almost guaranteed.
Later purchases of mine after the R107 and with the lowest mileage in my price range, came in the form of a 1966 Mercedes saloon (W108) with 35,000 miles, bought in 2008 and sold this year with 43,000 miles and I almost doubled my outlay. In 2010 another low mileage car, a 1987 Mercedes 420SE with 35,000 miles and presently this car has only done 47,000 miles and is not getting enough use now, its value has increased to the point that I may sell.
My 993 with 57,000 miles, a high miler by my past buying history came at a decent price and was the colour I really preferred, I could have afforded a little more but would I have got a better car?

Zingari is in a constant state of denial, its a perfecting normal self defense mechanism when one has missed the boat on so many levels

Surely the values spoken about for 964 Celebrations are 'Smoke and mirrors '? Thumb

When we have the buyer offering himself up (presumably after he's checked ou of The Priory) then I'll believe it Grin

I'm in London next month it appears where I will hopefully have the opportunity to talk values with Madalaa. I know it will be London Fashion Week but if you can escape modelling the socks and sandals for the Spring2018 catwalk why not pop along for an audience Thumb

Haha. Let me know the date and I shall do my best to attend Thumb

I think these values are real. But the sort of person who pays all the money for the cars now are probably not tinkerers, nor forum participants. More likely they lock them away and/or add them to their 'collections' to enjoy Dont know

In summary, they are still a weird bunch, but in a different way to us lot Grin

Any idea of the number achieved chum?

Also was it actually a minter, or just a car with very low miles?

I'll start at 25 bags as I don't know anything about it and it could still be tired if it's only done a few miles every weekend to the local shop for a pint of milk and the Sunday papers. Those with rose tinted goggles will have a different view and treat it as if its the second coming despite having not seen it Rolling Eyes
