Ridiculous, nothig exceptional about it.

Seems that a lot of dealers are way unrealistic with the C4S prices at the moment lots of cars above the 30k which seems to stay on there for ages.

I was genuilly interested in the following car myself. But after enquiries, the car has 2 long service history gaps and no real signs of regulr oil changes. Only 3 stamps from a now closed non porsche specialist garage in NI, no IMS upgrade, no clutch and no warranty provided...seems a little crazy.

That will hang around - not even a manual. I would say it's about £10k too much and only then assuming it is perfect (which I doubt it is). They certainly have some very expensive cars and lots of Porsches, so perhaps they are hoping someone with more money than sense (there is no shortage of money round there) sees it as an "investment" Porsche and get caught up in the sales bullsh*t...

How about a £50k C4S here, with 15k miles and a 5 year service gap 2008 to 2013 and last serviced in 2015:

It's that insane 'mileage over everything else' thing, isn't it.

2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Wed Mar 21, 2018 8:33 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I remember when a few dealers started asking big money for 993s. I thought it would never catch on, being as I'd previously sold a lovely low miles manual Targa for £26k... Sad

The best examples might fetch decent money... the 996 4S was the last 'turbo bodied' 911 in the genre of the 3.2 Supersport, 964 Anniversary and 993 S so has some cachet if nothing like the rarity... then others may get pulled up a bit. Which would be no bad thing as it helps me justify my ongoing programme of works to mine!

Don't really care what dealers ask for them. If they fetch the prices, good for them.

The 15k mile car was in the H&H auction yesterday at guide price £40-£50k and wasn't sold as it only got to £38k...

Am I the only one who thinks that, if you are going to try and take the pi$$ and advertise a car like that for that price you'd at least get the cracked reflector replaced first....

It just goes to show the contempt that some dealers have towards buyers PC

Only £38k!! That's nuts for a C4s.

I'm not sure - what would a turbo with 15k miles on it fetch - £55-60k? In that context it looks not bad value and this will no doubt be a speculator/collector car not a driver.

It wasn't a stupid question and know typically 2006 would be a 997, however the thread is a 996 sub forum discussing 996C4S values....When you mentioned your red 2006C4S I also noticed your profile image is of a 996?? I thought was it some rare late registered car which happens. Ive seen 996C4S's on an 05.

I dint mention it was a stupid question (peace)

I reckon my 997 is not far of 40k
So surely a 996 is 30-34k ?

But then,it’s worth what some one is willing
To pay.ive sold stuff on eBay that has gone far
Beyond what a thought it was worth,normally
To a overseas buyer

So neigh sayers aside, it seems quite conclusive that 996 values are strong....with this in mind, which do you think will be the real chart mover in value - C4S or Turbo? Or will it just be relative?
