Stay away, it is really bad news......Surprised




It is not the same car that was for sale (SOR) at a prestigious dealership last year, but when it didn't sell, the owner traded it in instead.

And I didn't speak with the place it was for sale at, who didn't tell me it was a really nice car, and I don't have the full spec and a number of lovely photos of it.

That's a different car altogether, and I am definitely not planning to be at the auction on Tuesday bidding on it ..... NOT AT ALL Hand

1st link is a damaged repaired car, 2nd is a club sport (so more valuable).

I think the auction car should be early to mid £50s + £2k buyers fees

It didn't sell last year at early £60s, lot of interest at late £50s, but I think the mkt has cooled a little since.

I'll try not and bid you up too much Mr. Green There's a nice looking 997 turbo going through at the same time.

Don't suppose anyone knows how much the 996 GT2 went for a couple of weeks ago?

Here is the ad for the Gt3 from last year, I spoke with the garage, they said it was a lovely car, might have needed a clutch soonish.

https://www.autostoresales.co.uk/porsche996gt3comfort


With regards the GT2 (996 black?) there is a long thread on Piston Heads about it, its been through BCA at least 5 times in the past year. I was out for lunch today with its first owner (Appollo), he really rated the car (however he owned it well over a decade ago), within the first few months of his ownership he blew the engine up (so it has a replacement engine fitted).

Once again (like the GT3 ) the GT2 was considered good enough to have been on the forecourt of a respected dealership earlier last year.

Some suggest the best bid on it to date has been £75k others suggest £120k ???

They started the bidding at £75k in the Hall. Not a single bid in person or online... £120k to buy-it-as-seen at BCA would never happen... not in a million years...

Not the best repair either by the look of it. Panel gaps around n/s wings are off, miles out between wing and sill. Torx bolts holding wing on under the bonnet are a different colour to the wing indicating the wing is not original paint.

Did the car mentioned in the first post go to auction today then?

Any takers?

I’m watching most of the GT3s on the market at the minute and it’s very stagnant.
Not talking it down at all, I have my budget and I’ll buy the car I deem best value.

I’m just going to watch for a month or two and see what cars shift and what ones don’t. None are moving at the moment and thanks to Y2K above having searched and bought his GR996.2 last year he has all the info on what cars have been up for how long etc. It’s actually quite eye opening as a buyer to see how long some of them have been up for. 18 months to 2 years isn’t uncommon. Surprised

987 Spyder is still a close second choice for me as it’s £15k less outlay and a good sense of occasion with them.

I guess it is not uncommon for some of these sellers to put these type of cars 'for sale' as soon as they get them, at a profit of course, sort of if it sells it sells, if it doesn't then I will drive it a little longer?? and that is why some are around for a while, and of course, like the ebay one some have a dubious past Surprised
Ragpicker has had his for sale on here since November, nothing at all wrong with the car, indeed quite the opposite but you need the right car for you, at the correct price for you, to strike the deal, so yeah I completely agree with you on watching and waiting, good luck Thumb

Totally agree when talking about private sellers. As you say if someone’s happy with their car but just fancies a change then they can just leave it listed and see what happens.

It’s the dealers I’m surprised at as they’re living is made from shifting stuff.
A lot of it is SOR though so as mentioned on other threads there’s no massive risk or incentive to the dealer.

Black one at Autostore has been in since last year. Parr have had that mk1 for 18 months+, etc etc.

Most dealers who actually own their stock are eager to try and strike a fair deal. RPM were.

When I’m speaking to dealers I’m letting them know that I can do any items they were going to do as prep, I’m not bothered about it being detailed for £500, etc. All I want if buying from a dealer is 3 months warranty so I can prove the engine and box are sound. I’m not bothered if a window switch or something minor like that goes as it wouldn’t be worth trailing back down south for it anyway.

As I say the dealers I’ve spoken to are very accommodating with regards to a common sense deal.

The black car at Autostore is SOR. The silver RPM car is theirs obviously.

That one was for sale at Parr since around Sept 2016 as I remember emailing them about it before I bought my 1M. It was an old advert and they didn't respond so I assumed they had sold it but obviously didn't. I keep an eye on the market but not fully committed since I always end up finding something else but lots of stuff has been sticking around for ages.

Reminds me of 911V and when they used to offer a millennium bug price as well as pucker retail price. Very Happy

Hi Pindi. Wow 2016!
I knew it was at least 18 months but wow, that’s a long time.

Hey Vroom. Yes the old millennium bug price. Grin

That’s weird you mention that. I was just thinking about it the other day whilst browsing their site and wondering if they’d still do it just for me. Very Happy

They’ve got some nice stuff in at the moment. GT3 and 987 Spyder.
Ironically I sold my mates Spyder to Tom at 911v a few years ago. Great to deal with, so I’d be keen to buy from him.

Has no one bought the subject of this thread yet then?
Comfort seats rule it out for me.
