I just happened to spot this for sale and it seems cheap to me. I already have a C4S so not looking to buy but just like occasionally checking values and what else is available.

https://www.motor-hub.co.uk/used-cars/porsche-911-3-6-996-carrera-4s-awd-2dr-keighley-201904177071580

Does the mileage and the fact its been stood lower the price this much??

Price looks about right for the mileage, and nice looking car. Shame they fitted a ceramic bearing...
Would definitely look at this if in the market for a higher mileage 4s though a boroscope would be a must !

I paid less than that for a manual C4S last month, with almost everything done except a new pair of exhaust boxes needed. Under 100K miles.

But I would say I got lucky, and the private seller was incentivised to sell. When my Indy did the PPI they valued the car at 18-19K, so I guess 17K from a dealer could be the right money if the car needs some work (which I’m sure it will) given the mileage.

Ad doesn’t say anything about hard brake lines being replaced for example. That can get pricey. The car has PSE - that will no doubt be knackered by now, so that’s a fortune or a third party switchable replacement.

Maybe this is a rare case where the dealer has got the price about right? Very Happy

That car was sold at auction recently, £14,500 inc premium.
It was considered fair-ish value at that.

Speaking as an owner of a 114k mile 4S I'd say it is criminally cheap!
Very Happy

Motor Hub have a bit of a 'reputation' on various forums.

Now that is forum speak to be fair, and if you listened to the forums the 996 engine failure rate is about 90%!

Thumb True the reviews make terrible if amusing reading.

This review is the best

That review certainly is the best!! Floor

Although I wasn't really asking about the dealer and was only concerned with the actual price of the car (which I thought was low), I spotted this yesterday.

http://cardealermagazine.co.uk/publish/reckless-used-car-dealer-ordered-pay-53000-misleading-consumers/170781

So a dealer from hell by the sounds of it, stay well clear!
