  1. No pictures of the interior. And headlights look like they need some restoration.
  2. Nice colour. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to sell given it's located 5 hours out of Sydney.
  3. I'm surprised the one with the Savannah interior is still on the market? What's the story there?
  4. The $65k car in Sydney came with an extensive service history with Autohaus Hamilton, lightweight wheels and a permanent IMS fix. It will be interesting to hear wht the gearbox needed an overhaul on the one in SA.
  5. What's with the wiring coming out from in between the dash paneling?
  6. Its also registered interstate so there's the headache of rego transfer to go with the general "get off my lawn" vibe.
  7. Why would climate have a big bearing on the bore scoring issue? Does Porsche spec a different grade of oil in colder climates?
  8. Perhaps with 996 being at the bottom of its deprecation schedule, you're seeing buyers who might balk at a $50-60k commitment upfront plus the yearly maintenance?
  9. I just read that inflation for Q1 is at 0%. This is Australia wide so some places are better than others. Add potential deflation to a property market going back to the tune of 10% p.a. on the east coast and you have the perfect mix of - "I reckon it will be cheaper tomorrow". This is especially true for discretionary spending like a $50k classic car purchase. The election is just the icing on that cake.
  10. The issue is the softening economy (real estate prices) along with the upcoming election. Most people are keeping their powder dry until they know which way the wind is blowing tax wise especially. With what looks like doom and gloom on the horizon, toy budgets all over the country are currently frozen. At least that's what's happening in my circle. Having said that, the price seems reasonable for the condition and servicing. Hypothetical question - what would the cost of PPI, shipping and transferring the rego of this beast from SA to NSW be... If one was able to free up the required pesos.
  11. I'm a bit curious about the 997 market. 2008 997.1 C2 Manual for $87k https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2008-Porsche-911-Carrera-997-Manual-MY08/OAG-AD-17012342 2008 997.2 C2S Manual for $151k https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2008-Porsche-911-Carrera-S-997-Series-II-Manual-MY09/SSE-AD-5788747 Same colours. Similar mileage. Good service history. Obviously we're comparing a C2 to a C2S but are the Series IIs worth that much more?
  12. Does anyone know the story behind this? Is it a member's car? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1984-porsche-911-carrera-manual/SSE-AD-5958910/?utm_campaign=price-alert&utm_source=notification-center&utm_medium=email From memory it was advertised for $115k a week ago. Placed on hold - deposit was taken etc. etc. Now it's back on sale. What's the view on the $36k engine rebuild?
  13. Who snapped this up? Check out this Porsche 911 Carrera. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2003-Porsche-911-Carrera-996-Manual-MY03/OAG-AD-16992686 It couldn't have been on the market for more than a couple of hours.
