Present price of our 930 in the Excellence Buyers guide

To my fellow enthusiasts,

I was reviewing the prices of our 930 and it seems our cars depreciated for the year 2009. It seems the 964 turbo variants are the models the have gained in price for the year 2009. Could it be that there's a renewed interest for the 964 turbo's or potential 911 turbo buyers already lost interest in the 930 .

I have not read the report you refer to. I can only mention the three sales from my stable over the past year. Keep in mind these were word of mouth sales coming from buyers that were looking for exceptional cars and I am not located in the hottest sales area for these cars. The published report you refer to most likely came from other published sales that encompass many different condition turbo's reported in the past.
Also these were the prices offered by buyers that had been looking at the turbo's being offered ( in one case over 2 years) not prices that I asked or had anything to do with setting, as these cars were not offered for sale with a asking price.
Your right that in the past I have seen slightly higher prices from the hot spots ( Barrett Jackson and other auctions etc ) however they included a 15% os so buyers/sellers premium which gets into the glass being half full or empty analysis of to what the real price was.........They were $60K for a exceptional 1988 SN 31K miles with the right options. $46K for a equally nice 1979 ( silver lobster) 30K miles and $40K for a 87 with 31K miles that had been repainted due to sand storm damage but done so well that I nor judges @ Porsche shows could tell the difference. I was offered $44k until we found, after talking to the original owner, of the repaint ( the insurance co paid over $15K to repair the sand blasting that was just to one side,however they went around the whole car. Bottom line is that exceptional cars still get great prices, even when the stock market was cut in half and the real estate market is in the toilet. I would say that they have been a good investment compared to the traditional investments at certain points in time. Not to mention the Porsche Turbo ownership benifits of saying " it's mine"

Face it. These things are old, loud, smelly, and dangerous. They're not for every one. I didn't buy mine for an investment, I bought it to drive it like I stole it. They'll have to pry my cold dead fingers of my steering wheel to get mine.

Nice collection of videos! I think I've probably seen all of them at one time or another.
The one that I get the most kick out of is the one with the red 930 that hasn't been started in several months. The dude crawls in....lights her up and she dies. Listen closely now....you can hear him "pump" the throttle 3 or 4 times to get her "primed". What, since when did CIS injection include an accelerator pump?

I sold my 964 turbo with 20k on it last December for a good price. It then ended up at TruSpeed. My True Love is my 930 as it's the epitome of a Bad Boy car, loud, rude, obnoxious and farts flames. lol

Probably a good tiime to get one, or add another one (if you've been thinking about it) as some folks may act on that analysis in the Excellence Mag ( their story not mine) and think of selling at the levels they recommend. It's up to you to figure out which are the good ones.

It all depends on the value your car brings you...

BTW, mine is priceless.

I know what you mean. I am my own best customer, especially after I drive it.
