I’m after some advice from everyone !!.

The hunt is on for my next Porsche - I’m thinking a 991 and because of this I need to either part exchange or private sale my 997.1.I would be interested to hear your views on pricing , the spec is :
55 reg C4S silver Tip
Fsh/indie
99k BUT had full engine rebuild at 88k by Pie performance ( reason I bought the car!).
All the car wanted for was a front Pasm job( done before Xmas ).
She is nearly 20 years old but is in such great shape , Pie performance and Brooklands looking after it .

I would be interested on where you think she sits price wise ….. yes the miles are heavy but with the £16.000 engine rebuild under 3 years ago I think it would be a great hassle free buy !!.

Cheers

Chris

It looks like a nice car and the engine work should be seen as a bonus by an enthusiast buyer. In your position I'd be asking £23,500 initially.

having had that engine rebuild is a major positive for the next buyer, circa £25k

100k miles in 19 years seems the norm, Tips are worth a bit less
 
The biggest problem with these cars is that the value in the engine rebuild is only there for those that know. For everyone else it’ll come down to mileage and age and once a car gets over the 100k mark us UK folk tend to panic.

The easiest way to determine value is to get a quote on a px and use that as your baseline. A buyer in the know will pay more but then again some may view an engine rebuild by a company other than Hartech as a negative.

In my eyes, £25k. GLWS
 
I think that if you advertise it in the normal Autotrader type places you may struggle because people invariably look at age and miles which yours has got it going against it.

You need an enthusiast to show interest so on here is a good starting point along with numerous groups on social media related to 997 UK Facebook groups or TIPEC etc.

Price is going to be somewhere between £20-£25K but it will very much depend on what someone is prepared to pay, I imagine that PX value will be an insult.
 
Some more detail on the rebuild may alter the value dramatically.
 
Thanks for the reply’s so far - glad to see I’m not to far off the pace re the price ! … two invoices to let you all see the really though work carried out .
For info when speaking to Pie performance they did indeed use hartech but owing to the mechanics/ex Porsche techs took the work in-house .They have a mega reputation and I was more than happy to buy from them.

Again thanks for any thoughts or comments you have

Doesn't Hartech use wet alloy liners?

The invoice mentions fitting steel (and I assume dry) liner.
 
Hartech didn't do it, as the OP stated:

"For info when speaking to Pie performance they did indeed use hartech but owing to the mechanics/ex Porsche techs took the work in-house ."
 
Found a 991 !!!!!! - so got to sell pretty quick …. So saying that I have dropped the price to £24.000 ovno .

Hopefully this will be enough to get the interest going .

Cheers

Chris
 
Evening guys - hope you are all well .

I’ve taken a chance and placed a deposit on another car - a very very nice 991 !… as such I have reduced the price on my 997 for a couple of days to £23.500 ! . I don’t think there is another with the spec , condition and a 16k engine rebuild !!!!.

Give me a ring if interested - if no takers I will place it on the auto trader for the original price .

Cheers

Chris
 
Tip or not, I can’t help but think this is a bargain.

What’s the replacement?
 
Morning .
Yes I think it’s a bargain …. Think I have priced it to cheap but I’ve just put a deposit down on a 12 plate 3.4 991 so I can’t keep both !! . Worst case would be losing the deposit and keeping the 997 and taking my time to find a buyer ??.

Chris
 
If only it was a manual I’d be very tempted. Hopefully you’ll find a buyer quickly so you can move on to your next 911
