I would never buy a car this way. I would have to have seen it, made him an offer for a direct sale and not then have to go home and battle against Mr Shill.

If it is a good car then why not just sell it with a 'Buy it now' for the price desired? It may be that the Fast food chiller case has more going for it.

It's not me trying to flog it off. Must be some serious problems with this car if a dealer doesn't try and pick it up

I imagine its all in the price / value

79k miles is a lot (comapartvely for what is perceived to be a collectors car) I'm think trade bids will be in the mid to late £40s


I might be tempted back into a 911 - this, a very decent 993 coupe man or even a 991 c2s , all similar money

Interesting. I think it’s cheap at 52.5k. I agree 79k mileage is higher than others but on PH there seems to be so many PDKs/ 4WD/ Cabs thatbit surely makes a 2WD manual stand out even more? Question

I don’t think it’s cheap...I think its a fair price If it was an OPC car with say 50k miles on it I reckon they’d have it up for £60k maybe absolute tops £63k. I don’t think an OPC would bid on this car but reckon the trade bid is £45k absolute max.

My manual GTS has got 30k miles on it....I’ve not tried to sell it but I reckon a trade bid would be £65k absolute max, maybe low £60k’s. This car with 70k miles on it is a long way back from that.

Thing is mileage has a huge huge effect on price on newer Porsche. What would you do with it? Drive it normally youre soon into Mega miles, however in twenty years it won't matter as much, as a long term investment driven as a second or third car it's absolutely rock solid, mid to late forties would seem more appropriate mind.

A friend mentioned in passing, he knew the seller,

I can't vouch for the car..but I trust my friend's judgement

so perhaps the car is "Ok"

still a bit painful at over £50k for 80k miles.
