My mate has a similar low miler and had discussions with a couple of well respected dealers. Won't sell anywhere near that

I agree, I think the market is coming down from the peak of "silly money" for all of the Brand

I tried that once when I was in the market to buy. They couldn't be arsed to ring me back even though the car remained for sale for some time after.

Perhaps you have to sign a non-disclosure agreement and convince them that you are worthy of being a customer before they will reveal the 'big secret'. Dont know

Have to disagree - I think 9,700 miles in 20 years is wasteful

and such a low mile, high value car will be like a millstone to the new owner

I think that's spot on vroomvroom. I know the owner of this car, he's a genuine enthusiast with many cars and bikes. He's owned this C2S for less than a year. He just doesn't get to drive it much, and I think part of that reluctance is the mileage.

I bet the same money would get a very nice 993 turbo.
Let's pretend they had same number of owners and same colour etc, Would you rather have this C2s with 10k miles or a 50k mile turbo for the same money?
Difficult one - as per above - I agree with the millstone comment - what do you do with this one? Drain all fiuids out and dry store? I'd be driving it say 1-2k miles per year that surely is the better option

Question What did he pay for it I wonder? Don't understand the logic of moving it on after only 12 months unless he can't get on with the 'analogue' experience and thinks it's a pile of shoite what Sounds like an initial speculative buy to me and realising the top of the bell curve has passed. So Stephen's have it on SOR or did he off-load to them?

Personally, if I was going to spend that sort of dosh on a vintage Porsche, it would be for the following reasons:

A/ I have deep pockets
B/ I am an enthusiast
C/ A + B = I can afford an 'as new' 993 resplendent with that new Porsche smell.
D/ I drive it just like a normal car and enjoy every second.
E/ Because of A/ I can keep it tip-top forever!
F/ I couldn't care less about the thing depreciating as I'm having too much fun with my new 993

I could well have got this wrong but I reckon 9,700 miles would equate to roughly 30 tanks of fuel, or a full tank every 8 months over 20 years? So, unless the owner is doing something elaborate with charging and discharging the tank, it's been driven on an average of 4 month old fuel for 20 years or so? That just can't be good for the engine, injectors, fuel lines etc. can it?

We sold our last Carrera 'S' back in 2003 with 10K miles on it and even then we started to feel a little guilty about using the car as it was such a low mileage example - in 2017 I can imagine this feeling would be unbearable - I for one couldn't enjoy this car (assuming I had the money to buy it in the first instance). I think you would be much better with something around 50/60K miles because I don't know where you go with this one!

add that the stigma moving to 5 digit's on the odometer i.e. 10k is probably the same as moving to 6 digits and 100k
