116,000 is appropriate mileage for a 993 vintage car that was actually enjoyed, oil leak that is how you know it is a Porsche....... You repeatedly seem to be implying the motor is a ticking time bomb, which it hardly is......


If you want to change models..... change....... but most of us here know Porsches and see your complaints as characteristics of the car.

Bottom line they are both fun vintages but the difference between and SC and a 993 is significant.

IMO, the SC will not be as usable and in 2020 is more of a hobbyist vehicle.

Macroni gives some great advice. My 3.2 is my fun, hobby car like he said. More of a love affair with that car than something I look to as a daily driver (though I have use it for that in the past) For the day to day driving my 996 is leaps and bounds ahead of it and still gives me some of that analogue feel albeit in a more modern package (with great air conditioning) I recently took it a step further and threw in the new Porsche PCCM so now I have the modern amenities of bluetooth calling and apple car play as well. If you haven't had the chance go drive all the models you can before making any decision

Thatís why Iím doing a ppi to determine my 993s future. If the ppi checks out, Iíll keep it, and if not, I have a great excuse to throw down with a gem of an SC. Itís a no lose situation.

Kansas,

My first 911 was an '80SC. I loved it for nine years but wanted something a bit more modern. I picked up a 993 and I also love it (maybe a little more...?).

Along the way I bought an '84 Carrera, very much like the SC but a few small differences (but similar enough).

My advice: get the SC but don't sell the 993 just yet. Keep them both for a while and see what you think. You're going to love both but it will give you time to decide if you really want to sell the 993 after owning the SC. Don't be hasty selling it. Once its gone - its gone.

If you do decide to sell the 993 Transcon's idea is also a good one about picking up a 996 after the 993 is gone.

If forced to sell one I'm not sure which one I would let go. Probably the 993 because the '84 has the classic lines.

Whatís this SC worth
 
With reupholstered seats new carpet possibly new headliner $2500 detail including complete interior clean, leather conditioned and cleaned to a low sheen with a subtle finish, paint cut and color corrected, wheels off and wheelwells restored, under chassis completely cryodetailed.

$50,000 easy.

Current state Iím thinking $40,000 to $45,000.

Also with the doors open this SC looks to have bright trim work..

This will make a porschephile go weak in the knees.. Especially on a early 3.3/3.0 930..

is kansas going all Itchy Itza? ***** or wind a watch?

Geronimo 10-20-2020 05:09 AM

I can't help but feel that at $40K that car is a good buy, but will only loose money with use.

On the up side you shouldn't get slammed with $30-40K of engine and trans work.

It depends on if you are a driver or collector.
If you are a driver you will loose interest in the car if it's not driven.
Enjoying a car is driving a car and to hell with the value. IMO.

My new to me 07RS had 18K in Feb when I got it. I just hit 23K last week.

But there are the MIB guys that enjoy the collecting of rare cars.
But those people have cars they drive and cars they collect. Two different itches get scratched.
Middle class one car owners should not be collectors. Again; IMO.

Geronimo 10-20-2020 07:30 AM

OH I agree, I am not a collector at all.

I just mean that I think $40K for an SC is a high water mark, if the buyer decides in a few years to sell he will likely not get his money back. Which if he understands that going in it's all good.

The up side of this car is that he isn't loosing $50K on it like the seller.

This is a $50k car. Buying it at $40k he can drive it $10k worth before heís paying for it. $40k is nowhere near a high water mark if an SC. Thatís really nice driver money these days.

ditch the 993 ....... go minimalist.

I hear ya loud and clear. But Iíve seen the tea leaves lately, and 993 values are starting to go through the roof right now. I think Iíll keep my 993, buy this SC and sell it on BAT for $60k. Iíve got $80k in documented receipts on this car.

Geronimo 10-21-2020 03:43 AM

That might be the smart move.... FLIP IT.

Your car your right, but it would be counter to the intent of the seller. He told you he’s giving you a good deal because he thinks you want the car for yourself and you’ve just told the whole world you’re flipper scum.

Not planning on selling right away by any stretch, but I always sell my Porsches after several years of enjoyment. Not the same as flipping.

Paper trail 85k mile car and just did a top and bottom rebuild on it.
