  1. Ye definately. I'd prefer something with minimal work required. Back to my original question. In the current market what kind of price would you be expected to pay for something like the following: Aussie delivered, good paint and body, recently rebuilt and fully documented history. Either an SC or a 3.2?
  2. The body needs work. It's priced OK. I didn't bother checking it mechanically. Would rather wait for one that's a bit cleaner. When things go bad with the economy, the first thing people tend to offload are their toys. Working in the property industry, I see so many people leveraged up to their eyeballs, which is a recipe for disaster. I'd really like to get into a 911, but am a bit sceptical considering. I think we will see more of the repercussions from all this come September. I think 911s are a like the housing market at the moment, which at best will hold current values, but even that's optimistic. Just my 2c anyway.
  3. Market has definitely slowed and in my opinion I think it will only get worse. NSX are selling for 20k less than what I sold mine in November (manual ones that is). Anything over $100k tends to sit on carsales for months. Majority of the movement seems to be happening at around $85k on average for decent models from what I can see. That being said, this is my observation and I've started this thread to get some feedback from others. Personally I wouldn't pay over $100k for either an SC or a 3.2, unless there was a recent rebuilt and the body and paint were in great condition, because you'd have to price it in. I almost took the plunge on an aussie delivered slate blue 85' model a few years ago, which had 180,000kms, a recent rebuild and a fresh respray at $98k, but the NSX came up at a price I couldn't refuse. I'm kind of using that as a price point when looking now too, but again it's been a while since I've looked, so some feedback would be good. I've had about 6 offered to me in the last week, of which 1 is advertised online. I think there's alot of off market sellers at the moment. Was the same last time I was looking. If you're interested I can ask to pass on details. Just send me a pm.
  4. Hi all, I was in the market for 911 a few years ago, but ended up coming across a NSX which I couldn't pass up on. I've since sold this and am back in the market for a 911. I'm looking at either an SC or a 3.2. The criteria that is non negotiable for me is a coupe that doesn't require much work if anything, very straight, matching numbers and Australian delivered. I've started monitoring the market again over the last few months and values look to be a bit up and down compared to last time around. Anywhere from $80-$130k. That being said, I've noticed the higher end of that bracket has been selling for significantly lower than advertised and the ones that maintain the asking price aren't moving. I was close to biting the bullet on an 85' model a month ago, but they won't budge from $110k which I think is a bitch ritch at the moment. I could be wrong though, but the car is still for sale.. Can anyone offer some feedback on valuations for both models.

  6. Curious to see what everyone thinks about the pricing on these? Both at $99k. I've been eyeing the green one for a while, but I think the price is still a bit excessive even without the current market conditions.
  7. Congratulations @Bluegus73. The car looks great! Funny about the red one. Everyone was saying at that price, you buy without a PPI. 2 weeks in the PPI looks to have turned up only minor issues and still hasn't sold. Seller tried to call me, but I didn't get back to him, no doubt to try and sell it to me. Had not heard from him since I asked for interior and engine bay pics that he never sent, but later uploaded to carsales. I think he might have been regretting turning back interstate buyers.
  8. Driving a manual 996 Turbo definitely through a spanner in the works of my SC and 3.2 search. I've been waiting for one to come up for sale, but there's nothing. I was set on either an SC or 3.2, but have taken a step back now after driving one and am just watching a few different models. See what comes up first! If you haven't driven one I'd suggest you do. I had a grin ear to ear.
  9. It would be very interesting to see how you compare them. Great value for money.
  10. Have you driven a 996 turbo @bear924? From what I can see, it's harder finding a 996 turbo as opposed to a G-series. Doesn't like they change hands too often.

    I don't really like the colour combo enough to jump on it. If the interior wasn't tan, I might have made a move. The right car will come up eventually.
  12. I've seen quite a few pics now with low km cars. You can definitely tell if they've been done. Although there is some slight variance, they're all consistent with the sealer and alignment. I've seen 4 cars now and the only one that is consistent and I'm confident that neither panel has been replaced is an example with 80,000kms.
  13. What are you going to replace this with @hugh?
  14. Dyson is the way to. Just put the small attachment on the cordless and it makes it quite easy.
