32.5K is the fair price for that C2.

Porsche Crest

Hey guys, decided to keep the car for a while longer! I didn't know mileage was such a factor for older Porsches, I guess my thoughts were that a machine that's run every day would probably run be healthier and more reliable and thus offset a bit of the price reduction due to the higher mileage. I'll just be looking for a second car to daily! Thanks for all the input!





Fixed the front bumper and gave the paint a shine in one day, then realized it wasn't worth selling!

Good call. I would do the the same.

A few years ago I drove a local 1990 C2 manual coupe baltic blue with blue interior and factory sports seats. 226k miles and 2 or 3 minor hits. It was a UK model imported to Canada. What a great car to drive. You wouldn't know it had that kind of mileage. Unfortunately the mechanicals and body were completely neglected and it needed a lot of money dumped into it.

I remember the owner lowered his price to $12k USD firm otherwise was taking it back to the UK with him since he was moving back. I tried to get it for 10k USD but he wouldn't budge and I wasn't prepared to put a lot of money into a car that would never have much resale value.

Now I really wish I had that car back as a project and a driver!

Just wait for Petrolicious to put up another video of The Growler and put it on BAT and you'll probably get 40k all day.

Good for you - the front bumper looks ok.

When seeing a 300k mile car, I am compelled to bump this thesis.....from a depreciation stand point.
Is daily driving your low mileage 911 cheaper than also owning a new commuter car?

Depends on what daily driver you have and how low mls your 911 is.

When you start worrying about the miles you're putting on your 911 and how much it's costing you in depreciation, it's time to get a new hobby (or car).

Shortly after that was made Alex decided that the car wasn’t perfect enough and put $20k into making the gearbox more on par with the engine.

i know this is a late to the party reply, but to the OP, I value your 300K 911 over most garage queens that don't do what they were built to do. What an amazing history of use, and something you can jump in a tear up a mountain road anytime you want without fretting that your paint is getting blown the wrong way.
My oldest son bought a 1986 3.2 with 311K miles on it in high school. I still regret not buying it from him when he sold it, one of the best sorted drivers you could imagine.
Drivers and owners are not alway synonymous. Don't be just the later.
