2013. I bought my 996.1 C2 LSD/GT3 aerokit/M030 for £8700

I bought my non aero, non M030, non LSD C2 in 2014 for £11k and I thought I got a bargain, that’s a great price!

The front lights grew on me as I owned my turbo, actually id be interested in a deal with one of the good manual c2 or c4s against an E320 Sportline cabriolet I own if anyone wants a change. It's on the classic chrome website.

Yeah, I thought it was a bargain too, but there was a serious gearbox problem, I've replaced all of the suspension (which many less cheap 996s of this age will have needed anyway), It turned out the AOS was leaking and I was lied to about it having a lightweight flywheel. It also needed an RMS and the manifold bolts were in terrible condition, and the aircon didn't work, and one of the GT3 wheels it had was slightly bent.

So it wasn't a free lunch, but the LSD still works, and I've remedied everything above. The thing was, I did my research and was already pretty handy with the spanners so was mostly able to see what I was getting into, and the aero kit and LSD were both must haves that were hard to find in the same car.

I was looking around 2006/2007 for a 996 when the bottom of the market was around £13k. In the end I decided to spend the money motor racing instead. Fast forward to 2013 and the bottom of the market had dropped to about £7k. I bought my 996.1 C2 LSD/GT3 aerokit/M030 for £8700 and I reckon it's probably worth between £12/14k now depending on the buyer and what suspension I let them take it with (I have H&R coilovers as well as the M030). I've done a considerable amount of preventative maintenance and lightening, and it drives brilliantly. I hope never to sell, but if I do then it will probably have washed its face in terms of maintenance costs, but that's only because I've done everything myself.


Failing to mention that the gearbox was knackered when you bought it for this price doesn't help people. nooo

I asked previously what sort of 996 you could have bought for £13k in 2006/2007 and can only conclude that this was a broken car too as in 2007 there were very few 996s on the market for under £18k.

The gearbox had a serious fault but it was far from knackered and didn't affect the driveability of the car in any way. Hand

As you previously had suggested, the bottom of the market in 2007 that I mentioned was around £13k was indeed repaired Cat Ds, or high mileage cars. That's what the bottom of the market for any car generally looks like. I class anything that's running, driving and with a current MOT, that will not need serious work in the immediate future to keep it running as being within that bracket. I did go and view and drive a £5k 996 but it needed so much work that it was outside that bracket.

Yours looked good value, you sorted the old suspension too? That's another nice thing to buy a car with. Centre of gravity overhaul will not be cheap.
