A couple of possibilities:

1) He will attempt to convince you that your car is not worth shooting and then offer to do you a "favor" and bail you out of the money pit for $7,000

2) He likes to make cars shiny and pristine but does not care to drive them.

3) He just hates turbo's. I know a very well respected mechanic that won't work on a turbo. He just hates them. That's only his preference not a market valuation.

4) He get's a kick out of hazing people with less standing in the Porsche community.

In any case he is insane about the market value. $20,000 seems to be the bottom for a car that runs at all. People part these cars for more than that many times.

Sure, a more modern Porsche will be faster and cheaper and more convenient ... who cares? We want what we want. If we were logical about our cars we would all drive a Honda Civic or such.
