SOUNDS like a bargain. if I was after a useable manual 993 Targa I’d certainly look into it further.

It was the sort of money I was hoping to spend when I was looking and ended up paying far more for mine a year ago (not sure the mileage would have bothered me that much either)

........and the engine starts, even when its freezing!

No MOT since the 3rd May this year and had done 150,000 miles in 2008 so not many miles for his daily or an MOT!

Not at all - probably a lovely car but something doesn't ring true with it being his daily driver with no MOT and a sketchy history - if he has owned for the last 4 years he has done 5000 miles in it - that's less than jonttt!

Might be worth a punt for someone but not me......

I would think a Manual 993 in any form must be worth £25k'ish in parts alone? Engine & Box highly sought after for 70's & 80's hot rods.

Considering what G Series & 964 Targa's are going for, this could be a bargain.

Always amuses me when people get excited about ebay auction cars that have just been listed. "Oooh bargain!!" they cry.

Overlooking the fact that 1) it's an auction 2) the price they're talking about is only the starting price and 3) it has over 8 days left to run.

Anyway, fingers crossed though that nobody else bids and someone gets it for a maiden bid of £26k. Then and only then can it be described a bargain.

I dread to think how people would behave if it were listed starting at 99p...
Spitting out their stout and tripping over their sandals to fire off emails and get bidding I should think Very Happy

Can you blame someone who might want a 993 getting a little excited. Most manual 993s are the other side of 40k. As stated I’d certainly have been very interested before I bought mine. It may be a dog but no need to sneer because it’s on eBay at a low starting price.

I won’t be bidding but I’ll definitely be watching to see if it even sells.

With so long still to go on the auction - there really isn't any reason to get excited. In the last hour of bidding it will almost certainly end up somewhat less of a bargain and more a representative number I suspect... Hand

I've not sneered at the car. In fact I didn't pass comment at all on the car itself - I think you've missed the essence of my post. The car actually looks a pretty good example, especially given the mileage.

I was just saying I don't see how people can say a car is cheap without actually establishing the selling price - it's an auction. And it's got 8 days still to run. It's great that someone's posted the link, but to get so excited so early on seems a little premature. If in 8 days' time it's still sat at £26k then some excitement would be expected.

You even state yourself that most manual 993's are the other side of £40k, so unless it is a dog why will it sell for its starting price (which is heavily suggested by people's excitement)???

I too have added it to the watch list and will watch with interest.

Hand I won't be surprised if some 'shill' bidding takes place to artificially inflate the price beyond its true worth.

Breaking one of these for parts (excluding the use of the DVB calculator Rolling Eyes ) you're talking c12k-14k but you may have some parts and a garage full of shiote for a long time. Wiper widget would probably go first Thumb

It's 'worth' less than 30 bags, end of. Otherwise you could do your dough what

The engine & box will be worth £12-15k, even with those miles. Wheels, Seats, Steering Wheel, Lights, Brakes, Mirrors and interior parts would also go quite quickly IMO.
Panels, suspension parts etc. would obviously take longer but the key would be to sell them via auction and not at a classified price with the inflated value that most sellers seem to dream up...! Lots of sellers with Steering Wheels, Alloys & Panels at ridiculous prices that have been around for weeks, months & years in some cases!

Anyway, back to the car in question. Fingers crossed there's no shill bidding. If it sells for near the asking then someone gets a good base Targa for depreciation proof hooning. If it sells for strong money then woohoo, 993's are finally showing their worth compared to G Series & 964 cars. Thumb
