My old 968 cabrio is up for sale at Brookspeed...

We sold it 3 years ago for £10K less than it is up for - should have kept it!

Yep, my 994 s2 was up for sale at double the price I sold it for a few years back. I hate to think what my 993 would be up for on a forecourt today but you can't keep them all so keep the photos and the memories and move on!

Yep we all have our "one that got away". frustrated Grin

I sold my 964T for £25k in 2012. It was up for £100k last year at RPM.
And I sold my GT3 mk1 CS for £42k in 2014.

I think I miss the 964T more as a road car and for looks.

Timely thread though mike as I'm constantly searching the ads following 968 cab prices and R129 Merc prices. Either of those would make a great everyday classic from March to October. I'm not serious for a year or two but they're my top two at the moment. Thumb

My old 968 was a great introduction to Porsches - under-rated car and was a bargain when I bought it

Yes they're great cars. I couldn't stomach paying £25k mind.
It'd have to be a high miler or something and cost about £12k.

I remember when CS's were £16k. £40k these days. Crazy really.

I have a 968 that I have had for nearly 20 years and consider selling it most winters. I put very little mileage on it and it suffers because of it, even though it is stored undercover. I have had more niggles with it than my Alfa GTV!

I notice that although there are some very high priced ones being advertised, they don’t shift very quickly. Some have been up for sale for a year or so.

Must be the most under rated Porsche out there, even 944s seem to be more desirable even though the 968 is a better car.

So few were made, they handle really well but seem to be under the radar
and plenty of people haven’t got a clue what it is or how old they are now.

If it’s not a Club Sport they don’t appear to be that desired.

I think it safe to say that they are not considered very “cool” by anyone but aficianados unless they are the vaunted Club Sport.

2001 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

I would love a 968 but I disagree about it being the better car than the 944. The later 944 Turbo at least is a much better car IMHO and which is why they are so popular. As I understand it a lot of the 968s came with tiptronic which is also what puts off most potential buyers who want a fun weekend car / track car.

Dealer prices for anything Porsche are extremely exageratted and I've seen the same 968s, 944s and 928s for sale for 12 months+ at inflated prices. A more realistic view is to have a look what average cars on going for on ebay.

Had a look at a 928 S4 late last year where they wanted £16k, there were leaks everywhere, bits missing from the interior and little to no history.
