Feeler: '86 930

I am strongly considering selling my 930. I mean after 1 year I have not put 700 miles on the car and I just hate seeing it sit there like a piece of furniture. Not sure on prices these days so not sure what to ask. Details:

1986 930 22.5k miles 1 owner from 1987 (he bought it with 4k miles) until last year when I bought it
Guards Red, Black interior
Original paint except the rocker panels (it came with boxed ones so I bought OEM's)
I had an engine out service for a full tune up. Some other parts were replaced.
Mods: Has a larger turbo, Koklen intercooler, Borla muffler, Andal fuel enrichment.
Parts: comes with all original parts in amazing condition
I would say the condition speaks for itself. It is gorgeous but has a few stone chips as the car is 28 years old. Personally, and being picky, I would repaint the hood as there is a scratch. That's it.

I think I would ask around $90k. Will list one of these days. I need to take a few pics and will post shortly.

sounds like a fantastic car. it should bring the money. I am curious on thinking for pricing from the group?

do keep in mind however that you have a special car and it should not be grouped into high mileage, multiple owners comps.

I have no idea how to price to it. I go on ebay, high end dealers, etc. My mechanic offered me $70k which was a stretch for him big time. I think $90k is reasonable but what do I know? If this were at Marshall Goldman or a place like them it would be priced in the $100's.

Stone cold stock in pristine condition will deliver 85-90k.
Last yr I bought mine for 46, ended up doing a complete rebuild and converting it back or close to stock, got about 20k in it, been offered 80 already. I might sit on it a yr or so and trade it on a gt3. I've never had a car that actually appreciated in value, kinda nice. Of course once I sell it, I'd never be able to buy another with these prices.

Tt, you cannot sell that car! I think I remember the regrets of the sale of the slant or something along those lines. You were looking about the same time as myself. Resist and enjoy.

You're right, in reality I could never buy another one in this market.

I'm like you guys... If I sold my car at a handsome price, I'm not sure I'd spend the money to get another one. For the 90-100K range there are other cars that would tempt me more.

Chris.

just another data point...

classic showcase in san diego has an 87 w/ 65k miles and is asking $118k. I bet it will sell and not for a penny less than $110k.

before you laugh, please remember that these guys are responsible for getting >$400k for a series 1 e-type!

Very tough to market as prices are all over the map. May just toss on ebay and see the offers I get. Not sure if putting a price on this is the right way to go considering the asking prices at some dealers.

eBay and set your reserve high. If there is no need to sell then don't bother. Wait and watch the car appreciate in value in the next 5 years

Marshall Goldman selling their collection which is impressive and substantial. Their '87 930 with 28k miles is going for $125k, lower mileage cars much much more. I would bet theirs is 15-20% nicer than mine as I would have to assume theirs are flawless in every respect. So, I think I am on the money at $90-100k. Who knows. I still have not taken a picture!

don't assume that. the car at classic showcase for $118k is nice too but has 65k miles on it...I suspect you could get 6 figures for your car.

in any event, the new buyer of your car will be getting a nicely owned low mile example!!! glws!!

I hope we have been a reasonable sounding board.

I'm still debating. Thinking of just overhauling my small collection into something better suited to my needs. I have a 996TT which I use sometimes but it is set up more for the track and in that regards is a bit disappointing for the obvious reasons. So was thinking of selling both and replacing with a 993TT and a GT3.

But, considering how often I can actually get to the track these days a GT3 may be overkill and doesn't have back seats for my kids. The 993TT would be necessary due to the power loss of my 996TT (which is just awesome) while retaining my air-cooled needs.

Having been there snd done that, I'd say a 993tt suits your needs. At least on paper, in reality their prices are also sky high right now, almost to the point you couldn't mod or track the car.
Perhaps a 997tt would be the best option, ESP the 997.2tts. Bone stock it will outrun any aircooled car (or gt3) on the track, very fast. In fact the only gt3 that will touch it is the gt3rs4.0.

All good points especially about values of 993TT's. I don't want to track a 993, just want to mod it to a nice 500-550HP and be done. Nothing irreversible. Just like my 996TT but air-cooled.

As for 997TT's, I just do not want to track another turbo. Too heavy, too complicated, too much crap that goes wrong. Even though a GT3 might be slower I would rather enjoy the speed than have a heavy GT car that is prone to failure. My 996TT can run with GT3's and is far faster HP-wise, but the feel, the unreliability, etc. is a downer.

Funny, 4 years ago when I began this quest I was looking at 993TT's in the $60's and 997GT3 RS's in the $90's. My 930 has appreciated accordingly while my 996TT has remained the same. But to pay up this much in this market is tough.

I wouldn't mod a 993tt at all in the current market. Could always trade the 930 in on a 997gt3 and sell the 996 for cash. Back seats can be added to a 997.1gt3, as the mounting points are present for seats and seatbelts.
