3. Have at least one suspension upgrade (doesn't need to be meaningful ie strut brace)
4. Momo prototipo
5. Don't be Red, white or silver. Black is OK.
6. Pictures with a long lens with vehicle situated by trains or loading docks.
7. Copy basics:
Oil leak - Moisture
Interior shot - driver
Old boat anchor audio equip - vintage
Suspension shot - bilstein, koni
Paint hosed - original single stage
An Outlaw Prototipo would add $3k easy. A must for any true driver.

Black doesn't bring the money on BAT. Blue of any shade is worth a fortune. Faux Magnus Walker signature under the bonnet is worth $5k. High quality photos in a nice setting with lots of filter, color blending and general photoshop work is priceless.

In 2001 I paid $36k for a 40k mile RSA
In 1996 I paid $51k for a 6k mile 94 Speedster
In 2002 I paid like $33k for a 35k mile 1989 Ruf modded 930 in a stunning moss green color.

I sold all of those cars plus dozens more air cooled 911's long before the price explosion, big deal.

I am with you ADDvanced ...

We all know you bought AMZN cheap. You're starting to act like MIB with this.

10k +- 2k in today's dollars has been the bottom for most now-cool production Porsches. Speedsters, longhoods, 914-6s, SCs, Carreras, 964s. If you're looking for value your best bet is in the 10k range.

I remember looking at driver 964s for under 10k back in 2010/11 and at the time a lot of porsche enthusiasts held the opinion that they "wouldn't be caught dead in a 964."

I've looked at your historical posts and they all seem to revolve around the idea that you missed the one Porsche boat. There's been about 10 Porsche boats and there will probably be 10 more.

Yes, it's not actually Bring a Trailer... It's Boat and Trailer.

I was just making the point that most millennials can't afford a hobby car much less a Porsche at todays values. That doesn't make me one of them. 78% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck and millennials are at an even higher percentage. It is ridiculous to say every one you know could afford it (rent a house in order to have space for a hobby Porsche? Really? Backwards priorities IMO). My argument wasn't about my situation, but go ahead and infer (and insult) all you want... I already stated earlier that I am in a "professional" occupation if you were really paying attention, so I am doing ok, and I'm not currently looking to buy anything (famous last words).

You don't think that has anything to do with financing falling rocks, living in overpriced apartments, stunningly low stock market participation and business ownership rates or even avocado toast?

I think there is way too much to unpack with that one. I don't think tightening up ones budget is going to be the fix all for our generation. It obviously will help and there are some people being idiots (avocado toast), but it doesn't come close to fixing things for the majority who were told go to college, get a good job and you'll be fine. Then realized that a $50k salary doesn't even get you a home anymore, and wages are going nowhere. Oh and you now owe $300+ a month for the next ten years for something that is no longer special. Are you surprised that leads to less stock market participation and fewer business risks taken? I think even if someone budgets well, perpetual rent increases, retirement obligations (not expecting SS), student loans, and wage stagnation will make it difficult for most millennials to find couch money for a hobby car. Anyone "successful" I know all went to grad school, law school or med school, I know zero young (sub30) business owners (besides 1, ). Seems like grad school is the new undergrad if you want to actually get ahead. Or if you are willing to do work not many others want to do, vocational skills pay well.

Guys where I work complain about prices of cars or some other item they wish they could own. But they are blowing through money, what with all those necessities like huge car payments, beer, smokes, Netflix, nights out every weekend etc. Saving money is not in their wheelhouse....

The data actually says otherwise.
They are saving more than any other generation.

1 in 6 has $100k saved.
Unpacking the Stats: 1 in 6 Millennials Has Saved $100K | Fortune


According to their national study of 2,205 people, 81% of Millennials are currently saving in some capacity, compared to 74% of Generation Xers and 77% of Baby Boomers.

I'm sure previous generations never drank, smoked or went out on the weekend, that would be irresponsible.
