This was a good one. Sold it in 2009 to a BA pilot - who must've sold it on in 2010 to this owner. In fact, the current advert reads as I wrote it when I sold it! Plagiarism!

Lovely car. I bought it from Strasse - then sold it before I went to live in USA and then bought the black one when I got back.
I put those Gert exhausts on - I loved it.
Insane money IMO, but the market speaks! Think I got £32k for it.....

That would is lovely, hope it goes to a good home.

Random question, those seat backs were they factory or do you know if they were refinished?

Def factory.
The white dials are aftermarket - but they weren't done by me.
 
For the record if anyone wants to save themselves a bag you can have mine for £92k just PM me :eek:

That's been up for 6 months or so. I spoke with him a while back.

Hey! Long, long time. You still have your black 2S? Yours was the only other one on this forum if I remember correctly...
Were you thinking about getting another one..?

I tried to buy your black one off you when you sold it in 2013 but from memory you sold it to a dealer for full asking :?: ....it made my mind up to get one quick as the market was only going one way :grin:

I remember - You called me up and said you'd pay me my asking price, and I didn't quite believe you! Sorry mate - i thought it was a try on.
I was already quite far down the line with someone. i sold privately - for pretty much asking IIRC, but that was still 'only' £37k. Would probably be north of £80k now I imagine. He still owns it.

Oh how I miss it....

...to these eyes it's a brave man that sinks £90k plus into a 993...I simply cant see the value in them...?

Might just be me but can't see how the market can sustain this value...it certainly hasn't for the doyen of Singer the 964?

Because they are:

- rare (all but especially WB)
- desirable
- one of the big 3 classics sports car (Ferrari, Lambo, Porsche)
- relatively cheap to maintain
- undervalued (yes in the historic supercar market)
