930 value going up fast

I know most of you guys are in the US.
However you may find it of interest.
Looking over 30 or so 930s for sale in Australia, 10 are going for over $90k.
I saw six at $100k or more.
With the Australian dollar and the US on par, I thought it interesting.
A nice twin turbo 930 up for $120k, but most of the big dollar cars are stock.

And the 996s are dropping just as fast.

I was in the market for a 930 in Australia last year and a lot of the ones I saw were asking amounts you indicate, but were sat on the market for month and months. What people want and advertise for versus what cars end up changing hands for are sometimes very different. I ended up importing out of the UK for much less on road for a mint 88.

Same thing's happening with the 964 Turbo.
Prices have increased 25% in the last 6 months.
Great if you are an owner; not so good if you are a buyer.

Pricing pressure has been on the upside. Inventory is shrinking. Demand has been constant for quality unmolested examples. Market buzz is now starting to talk about these cars. All positive developments for us.

Wow. I guess if they continue to climb particularly in the range of the Aussie prices I will eventually be saying goodbye to my 78 930...

Prices for good examples, good being stock or gently modded, have increased about 10% in the US over the last year. I believe this is fueled by European demand and slightly better US economy.

Are all these cars (in Australia) right hand drive or is there a market for left hand drive cars?
No, I'm not selling my cars, can't believe you even thought that.

No market for LHD.
I was just making the point that the value was going up.
A few have been selling for over 100k.

These cars will go up, only a matter of time. Hopefully I'll be around to enjoy it....

Well its the same in the U/K market as well. A good four speed around 25k a five speed 25k-30k .

The trouble is finding a good one, as so many people that own one do not spend money on them.

They use them for a while then sell them on.
Then what happens a lot of 930's turn up that need money spent on them right away.

I wonder what my car is worth, red/black with 256k miles, but with a fresh '94 T3.6 engine: what a hoot!

There is one at a dealer, in the U/K at just under 50k with around 59000 miles 89 model.

Most private sales are around the 25k-30k+.

I know I am the oddball but I hate to see the 930's going up in value. I have 5 and love them for the car they are and not for the $$$'s.

That same thing happened to me with my 69 Camaro SS-396. I bought it when it was reasonable and then the price skyrocketed. Then somebody wanted it real bad and stole it and now it is gone forever.

+1 It's nice to have cars worth enough to make maintaining them worthwhile. But not so much that it's too financially onerous (insurance, parts/maintenance, not wanting to leave it parked unattended, etc) to drive them around.

It looks like they could become the out of reach car, for some people due to the increase in value maybe?.

The 930 market is small you must really want one in the first place to buy one.
Many turn up on the market, due to the fact some people buy them use them spend no money on them then sell them on? Hence so many tried examples turn up for sale?

These cars need money spend on there upkeep runnning cost etc, parts get worn out.
Items like shocks, bushes are so often overlooked and not replaced by owners.


Plus five years ago you could find one maybe for 15k-20k not anymore unless it needs a lot of work right away. The market has pushed up prices the buyer is now looking at 25k + so its not the same type of person buying one now.

I maybe wrong its just IMO
