How to determine 930 sale price?

Hi, been a while since I posted here. I have a 87' 930 cabriolet that mom left me when she passed away 5 years ago with just over 48K miles. I looked all over to find what the going prices are for them and the prices are all over the place. Here is a site that I found

Used Porsche 930 for Sale | Used Cars for Sale | Oodle Marketplace

Some posts are outrageous I think like a 76' 930 with 74k for $75k, down to 86' that had 124K miles and they were asking $17k.

• Were there anything special about the 87's?
• Are Cabriolet more or less valuable then then a coupe?

In the next couple years I will be downsizing. Now that I am 40 I had second thought of starting a family so I don't need this 5 bedroom home, lots of maintenance. I just drive the car every other week to the gas station and back with a total of 8 miles there and back to keep it lubed, and the fuel fresh. I add a gallon of gas to keep everything fresh and just above empty so gas is not stored for long periods of time.

If you professionals have any idea of a good price range, I would be thankful.

Contact TruSpeed in Costa Mesa as the miles are relatively low. They should give you a good price for your car. Ask for the sales manager, Dick Shear.

Sorry to hear about your mothers passing. The 930 looks very nice with great miles. I would say $35-$38k.

Nice site for prices, damn these seem to be going up in price. Yours looks very nice. Based on those, $40K+, if it has no issues,no dings, no dents or errors. Alot of those prices are dreaming though. If not starting a family, more cars the better.

Thanks guys! That gives me a better idea. I looked at the Buyers guide and was surprised in the 930 cabriolet section. It said 2009 the HI was $51K and the low was $38K. Then the next year it went to the HI only being on $37K and the low $27K. The HI dropped $14K in 1 year? it did say that this was the price for normal wear and tear cars.

I did read the Exceptions part and it did say that cars could be worth a lot less if poorly maintained. or worth more based on their 7K-9K mires a year rating. My car should have 192K miles and has 48K. I think I might be leaning at $39,9K. I will do a little more research before I decided.

WPOZZZ - Thanks for that lead. I will give them a call next week and see.

dhg1337- Mom was a Porsche fan, I am a comfort fan. It has no power breaks, power steering, stiff clutch. Mom never said she didn't work enough before she passed. If I sell the house and the car and down size and live way under my means I can do more, stress less, work less and enjoy life

Thanks folks!

Always good to live within your means. Have good insurance if you park it at Lucky's. If I lived in a big city, I have often wished I could park one of my cars in the bad part of town, have it gone later in the day.

I cant believe how cheap these cars are in the US. In Australia you would be lucky to get that car for $70k.

If it was that easy/profitable people would be shipping them there all the time. Must be a expensive catch. I know Europe has a bit of a advantage as long as the prices they are paying are reasonable from the U.S. Sellers.

The same car RHD. Thats the catch. I was comparing it as a RHD. For the same thing in LHD you guys seem to be a good $20k less. We pay a lot more for our new Porsches also.
Over $380k for a new turbo and our dollar is worth more. To bring one out you have got the cost of conversion. However you can drive a LHD in Australia under condition
People do import porsches from the US to Australia.

Lars-

It always warms my heart when I hear of "moms" out there who had / have these things. She must have been a real hoot, sorry for your loss.

Yes, prices across the board dropped precipitously from '08-'09... have you noticed the current prolonged recession??? 8-)

Good luck w/ the sale, it's a gorgeous combo, low miles, appears in great condition and stock (save for the radio blank plate cover) - a great find for someone looking. Sometimes cab's go for less as folks shy away from their added complexity / cost of maintaining (top / mechanism). I'd put it out there tho for $42k and expect to settle ~ $39k - my gut 8-). Prices on these are still unfort somewhat softer than we'd prefer...

Counterpoint to having less / enjoying life more (sorry)... Carpe Diem baby... when the dirt's tossed over my box (or the match lit if I have my way, wifey's not keen)... the keys will probably be rigormortis'd into my fist with a Cheshire grin indellibly plastered across my face. We've all got our definitions, but to me living ain't living without LIVING 8-)...

Something fishy about that oodle site that 87 for $17000 is on ebay for $36,500 and the bidding is at $26,000 heres the link
Porsche : 930 | eBay
How could the same car be $20,000 less on a different site?

^^ That is a beast, double the HP of my stocker. To bad it can't pass smog in California. Looking at the build and condition seems like a 30K++ car.

krasuskyp - I was thinking right at $40K. Some one posted a while back that even though we go through a rescission it does not reduce the cost of a car like this but it reduces the number of people that can afford it. That was an interesting way of looking at it.

I just had it smog'd in California 2 months ago and it passed flying colors. That ebay post was interesting. It seems the more you modify the car away from stock the less it would be worth? I have a local buyer that was interested when I got it smog'd said call him if I ever want to sell it but it would break my heart to see it being driven around locally since it has been a family member since 88', 23 years. My dad passed when I was 19 and I have know this car longer then my own dad, haha. Never thought of it that way

I think in a couple weeks I will put it on market for around $40K and see what happens. I am in no huge hurry since I won't be selling the house for a few years. But it needs more TLC then I can give it these days.

Thanks!

-Lars

That's exactly the case - fewer folks can afford, so price drops.

I hear you Lars, lost my dad @ 18 and it was a profound day when I hit 36 and realized more time w/o him than with. Hence, my Carpe Diem response 8-).

I forgot to add, great that you keep it on a 1x / wk regimen - but allow me to suggest a 1x / wk EYEtalian Tune Up? One which that is greater than your current 8mi regimen. I'd suggest a min of 15, 7.5 each way. Basically you need to allow oil to warm to temp, get it WOT at least once if not more, then turn around and head home. Best thing you can do for it...

Best of luck w/ the sale, sounds like a real gem. The owned since '88 bit will help, and being stock (you're spot-on about mods, most of the time they add no value and sometimes detract - just the way it is)...

-Lars[/QUOTE]

What?? depends if you have ever driven both. If you want one that your wife is comfy with ( just based upon my experience), well then the safe way is your loss. If properly modded you will never want to eat hamburger again. worth less? modded!! your call . Get them while they are available or spend your money to do that stuff, after you drive the different cars.

But with most things there are different mods that you can do. Perhaps a mod that you think is great someone else thinks is not so great and makes the car worth less to that other person. But starting with a stock car you know what you are getting into and can customize it to what you want, and not what someone else wanted.

I think much of the concern w/ modded cars can be attributed to what the mods 'relate to'...

As in - why do you mod a car?

To hammer on it 8-)
