What are Fair Prices For 944s2 Coupe

I'm searching for a P car and have narrowed it down to 944s2 or 911sc. I have a 98 M3 as a daily driver, and the P car will be a toy, probably no track.

Myy questions are:

1. What pushed you guys to an S2 over a 911?

2. What are "fair" price ranges for these cars these days (USA)? There is one on Ebay right now with a buy it now price of $9000. I would buy it in a heartbeat if it was not red. I'm looking at a '91 tonight, but it is priced at 12,500 with 101k miles, and 17" rims. That seems about $1500 - $2000 too high too me.

Advice please!

1. I think most of us bought a 944 for it's legendary handling and the low introductory price, some of the folks around here already own a 911 or would like to sometime in the future.

2. I don't know where you are but in the Los Angeles area S2's seem to run $6000 for beaters to $12000 for a real nice example.
Is the $12500 one the silver/cream car in Laguna Beach? I was going to take a look at that car but it does seem a little high, if you take a look at it let us know what you find, I promise not to buy the car out from under you. As the regulars around here know I am constantly torn between upgrading to a 944S2/Turbo/968 or paying off my credit card debt.

if you haven't already done so, drive both the s2 and 911. as long as they are both in good shape w/ records, they should be about equaly realiable.

both are great and both are two completely different beasts.

You may be paying a little extra for the 17" wheels. They are not that common on the 944's. About a minimum of $700 (used, ebay) to do.

See if he will take 3 magic beans for it.

I got my S2 because it cost less than a 911. I'm also a saftey freak so I had to have ABS and dual airbags (that's right I'm a bad driver).

I saw one with a for sale sign on it last weekend for $7100. I don't know anything about miles or interior condition but the outside looked nice.

Fair price is what you're willing to pay for the car.
Wheather it's 2 or 12 thousand, as long as you have the money and are happy with the car. It's all relative. I know many people who in my opinion have "overpayed" for their car, but they don't care....they love their cars...

I met a guy yesterday who paid 10K for his car then over a couple of years put another 10K into it .
Obviously he's not going to get that money back when he goes to sell the car, but from talking to him, it was obvious he enjoyed spending every dime.

I sold my 89 S2 with 145k on it in March for $7900. The car was in good shape with great paint, good tires, and full maintenance records. The dash was moderately cracked and the drivers seat was splitting on the outer bolster. The car had no immediate requirements but was begining to consume oil and was probably going to need new A arms, struts, and motor mounts in the near future.

A fellow PCA member flew out from Indiana to purchase. He felt he got a good deal and I thought I got a good price - particularly since I had paid $8500 for the car three years earlier and had put 30k miles on it with no major expenses.
