Hmmm 85k, alrighty then...
My old slant was resold for like 85k recently, now that's a kick in the old nut bag, but I digress.
If you have one, consider yourself lucky. The most entry level 930 that would have fetched low 30s a yr ago are now trading in the 50s, anything decent is in the 60-70k range, holy cow!

It's fun to watch values go up on something you own, but I bought mine for one reason, to drive it with a big ol smile on my face. My year, mods and mileage (82k) will keep it from being a high flyer, but value was never one of my criteria for owning this car. Floor it, hear the wastegate dump pipe, hang on and smile. Now that be some car criteria right there boys.

I have been rebuilding an SC that I plan to sell this spring, so I'm all in favor of that one riding the air cooled price wave

Amazing that you can buy a car, drive it for thirty something years, use - but never abused - the crap out of it, take it to the track, take it to concurses, put on over 100k miles, and still sell it for more money than you paid for, assuming it has been properly maintained... I like it!

Yes true, have received offers from pelican members, Fchat ect and a quite a few from Europe. There is even a gentlemen in Norway who inquired. I never thought this cars audience was stateside or even on the this board but overseas and ebay.de. If the car dose not sell I will be just as happy I know Id miss it.

Asking and getting are two different things. I can't imagine actually paying anything close to these asking prices unless using bitcoins. The world economy remains in turmoil with no end in sight.

Heck, these prices wouldn't even buy a tank of gas for the private jets the Pebble Beach buyers fly in on.

Regardless of the economy, these cars are trading at record high prices today.

You'd miss driving 0.685mi per day?

You address this... but, did you revise your ebay ad regarding the "100% original bit"? Ironic statement after all the valuation / VIN banter here lately... priceless.

I think everyone here is stuck in Porsche-land and are dumbstruck by the increased valuations of everything Porsche. However, every single worthy car of relatively modern vintage are up huge. I was looking at Acura NSX's a few years ago and they have increased by 50-100% since then. In 2007 I put a deposit on a Ferrari Dino 246 GTS with "Chairs and Flairs" for $88k. That car now? Nearly $400k. Talk about regret. This is not just a Porsche phenomenon.

In the end, if there is a car bubble it will eventually pop. If you buy cars to enjoy you won't care. If you buy them to make money and you mortgage the house to finance an automotive investment I would be nervous.

Nobody can predict the future but the past is a very good barometer.

So if we believe cars are actually selling at these prices what has changed economically in the past 6 years? Not much from where I sit.

the stock market is up significantly the past few years off the lows and home prices are rebounding nicely in some areas. both create the feeling of wealth and having some money to spend.

If you haven't seen anything that's changed economically in the past 6 years then you must be living in a cave. Really, no offense but that is a ridiculous statement.

Try looking at the past 5 years increase in the stock market and envision the increase in wealth that has generated. It may not have been equally distributed but it certainly increased dramatically.

Economics, the rich are still rich and now our cars are 25+ years old making them classics instead of just old Porsche's. Limited production numbers are also driving prices up, I know someone will say a lot were built, it's perspective thing.

Compared to Chevy Cavaliers, more of those were built in a week than all 911 Turbos for all years production combined.

Brian, the rebound after the 09 economy crisis is notorious, just look around the house building market which is a perfect indicative of economy growth. Another key indicator is the overall energy comsumption and powerhouses construction, we are at a decade record as we speak... Things are definitely looking up and we all should recognize it be glad of it!!!

Sorry but I don't see it. The middle class has been decimated and they are the ones who spend the money that runs the economy.
The stock market has nothing to do with the working class as they do not participate in it.
I do observe an upswing though, just don't know where the money is coming from. It sure is not from middle class spending.
But I digress ...

The price seems a little high for having over 50,000 miles, but otherwise, it's a pretty nice car. My car had 81,000 miles when I bought it, and it only cost about $42,000.

However, you're in the market if you have any sort of retirement acct or 401k. Everytime consumers use a product they strengthen the company, economy and the market responds in kind.
Every consumer is in the market one way or another.
What you may not be seeing are 930s at tge bargain basement prices of 5-10 yrs ago and the guys who bought at 20k for ex bc those cars just aren't available at that price point anymore. I saw the same thing in the muscle car market, which did collapse but for different reasons.
