What is it worth? (My Factory Slantnose Cabriolet)

Hey guys,

I know the market has been a bit soft, but I need to find what my car is worth (divorce). It's a 1988 Porsche Turbo Cabriolet factory Slantnose (option 505).

The car is red/black. has 94,000 miles, and typical bolt-on's like K-27 turbo, B&B headers, GHL dual exhaust, B&B intercooler, and an upgraded suspension to coil overs front and rear. Wheels are BBS Motorsport Magnesium 18's and tires are shot. Leak down numbers in 2006 showed number 3=30%, 4=22%, and the rest at 10%. No engine work has been done.

The car is has not been repainted and is about a 7, interior carpet has been replaced, cloth top is a 7 as well.

Thoughts on what it would "sell" for? I know appraisals will come in higher, but I'd like to know what someone would pay for it...........

Blaine

Thanks in advance.

Don't mean to insult you, but I would say 35k given the miles, mods and leakdown.
Beautiful car.

Yep .... the leakdown is going to hurt the value. New buyer will have to figure the cost of a rebuild into his equation. 50-15 = 35

Factory slant really helps.
Leakdown really hurts.
Mods ..... helps/hurts depending on the next buyer

+$5K with factory Fuchs on it...

The only big money on these is for unmolested dead original examples with sub 50K miles. Given that almost all the 911s are going to Europe PPI may not be part of the equation for a sale- so leakdown may not matter to the new owner.

The best one on the planet is worth $80K- Worst one on the planet is still worth $30k if it is running and relatively undamaged- i would think a guards Red Cab, even with high miles could be a high $30s car, but honestly if you look at sale prices the factory Fuchs seem to add $5K. A really good one with Fuchs just sold here for $45K with half the mileage of yours. I think $35K is what you should shoot for.

I have been looking for 930s lately and one thing is asking, another is selling. If you needed to sell, maybe 30K or less. Sit and wait, you may get mid to high 30s.

Yeah but driving up the prices dramatically for those of us looking to buy here in the States... The advantage is ANY mods scare away the Germans- wrong wheels, stripped interior, engine mods- no interest from overseas. Hot Rodding seems to be a US/UK thing.

Yes it must be that the German factory built it that way so that is enough. One German buyer/ collector I know even thinks the 505 Slant nose option is not interesting to anyone he knows, however he seems interesred in the 934 and 935 cars that the factory built, and Kremer cars and some others that were build for higher than stock performance uses. Slant noses built for customer racing after the 78 Porsche built Moby Dick the last of the groupe 5 they built. So maybe certain slant nose cars were built to their liking so far, however the special whishes cars so far are
left to us along with the not quite so stock ones ( you know the ones that can really step out, so not such bad choices. I do like some of the modded ones over some of the stock ones. Best way is to be agreeable with all and get one(or more) of each.
