Time to move on - 993 pricing advice

I've decided that 993 ownership is no longer for me and I want to put my 1998 C2S for sale. The complication is that because it's tiptronic, It's hard for me to know what to price it at.

1998 C2S
Tiptronic
60k miles
Blue/tan
Motorsound
full leather interior (dash, center console, doors)
All maintenance done this year with records & photos (plugs, cables, belts, filters, fluids, etc.)
Bilstein coilovers, adjustable toe links, corner balance
New Speedlines & tires
While mechanically needing nothing, there has been paintwork and it has been a year round driver, so body is 6/10

I can't decide if to insure/pay for storage over winter to sell in spring, or take a lesser amount by posting now.

Could I get a quick sale at $60k? Fire sale at $55k? The cheapest widebody I've seen transact was $50k and it had double the mileage and more issues (albeit, manual):

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Henry - I'm moving this to the Marketplace Discussion section where users can comment on current market value.

Mea culpa, but I wouldn't pay 55k for your car.
Actually, I don't think I'd even buy it. Period.
Tip kills it big time for me.

6/10 - how bad can it bewith that milage!? Post pics?

Tip is a -20% for most, but if you find the right pirate with a peg leg to the left your car could be around 75k. Again, too little info to give a serious guess.

I think that car is $50k all day long. I am not a tip fan by any stretch, but that car, mileage and color combo should fetch $50k no problem.

I'm being conservative. It was a driver, so some chips up front, light scratches that are visible even after detail, etc. From 5 feet obviously great looking.

I think its worth 50k. Narrow body tips are sub 40k...probably could ask 60 and see how much response you get.

Hard to tell without pics especially with the bodywork and 6/10. Being in a hurry to sell is another hit no pun intended to your valuation. List it for 55k and go from there.

A few reasons to like a Tiptronic:

- A Tiptronic cannot "mechanically" over-rev the engine as the computer won't allow a downshift until safe revs have been reached for the gear chosen.
A missed downshift, usually 5th-2nd when 4th was desired, has caused the demise of more than a few engines in manual cars.
The Tiptronic won't assist overzealous gear rowing

- A Tiptronic cannot over-rev going up the gears as the computer won't allow that either.

It does leave a bit of the visceral nature of the car on the table but it's not a terrible trade off.

The Tip is a real killer.
In fact it has driven the manuals up, because for years Porsche made no automatic from 1974 to 1989. There frankly was no market for them for Porsche to mess with....
Then 964 and 993 came with a tip to meet some demand from weekend drivers or something...

But because Tip numbers adds to the manual being harder to find.....because anyone with a brain wants a air cooled manual...sorry not funny...

But look for prices to be flat for a long while, the worst combo is a Tip Cab...good luck $35k
Fat or not...

Seller of the red 89k mi DC craigslist car above said he had a 58k offer. That's somewhat reassuring

Put on ebay - I sold my tippy back in April on there. Got a lot of bottom feeders on the pcar forums.
