Ah yes... nothing like a $50K 996 Cabriolet, I swear I saw 996 cabbies going for $32K minimum on CS just 7 months ago and this is supposed to the cheapest cab for sale right now.

Gotta be quick in the dips hey!  It's an asking price - offer $33k and see how you go... What's the worst that could happen? Seller says "no". What if he says "yes"?

It's had the IMS Solution fitted, so you could say a non-IMS'd 996 tip cab is $45k (asking price).

That one has been for sale for a couple of years. It was priced at $39,995 until a couple of months ago it inexplicably went up $10k!

Why would you have a 996 when instead you can have a Yaris?  Or 2 Yariseses for your C4S.  Obvious really.

Or 3 even for your Turbo!

Fishcop Its a scenario where the PO has become unfortunately disillusioned and frustrated with the market, the vehicle was 1st listed in June 2020 at $103,5k then reduced and then reduced again .. it appears few buyers were willing to meet the PO’s price expectation and although offers have been made a gap remains in achieving the right price for the PO.

PO values the vehicle as the best on the market currently available and therefore reasonably priced, however market doesn’t seem to agree, hence a no transaction of sale.

As such the PO has sought dealer advice in the last week with dealer said to have displayed astonishment it hasn’t sold over the last 7 months and suggesting to seller it maybe priced too low for genuine enthusiast pcar buyers, so PO has opted to follow the advice, pricing it at current level now hence the $10k increase.. it was mentioned that if the latest exercise doesn’t work it’s likely to be withdrawn from CS and likely to be readvertised later at some point. The vehicle isn’t being driven but just sitting idle in storage.

In this case the game theory in price increase is driven by a Dealers advice, and as we all know Dealers appreciate strategic competition 😁

yep, they want competition priced as highly as possible. 

it's a pity carsales doesn't list what prices cars actually move at.

C4s is a bit stellar atm.

Great thing about Porsche, they gain a second wave of appreciation, when that model outgrows it's cycle another model gets it. Some rise at the same time. 

Go get one.

Very happy with my C4S purchase (the mob behind it don’t own it thankfully 😂)

Only managed 2k km on it last year. Planning on getting the PCCM+ done in Melb around the F1s if they have them in and the boarders open! Then onwards to Omeo Hwy

It's a shame he feels that way. I remember it for sale when I bought my C4S 5 months ago. It was priced in the low $90's .. that was so far above what others were listed and selling at that I didn't even bother to call and discuss it. I figured that we were just so far apart that I couldn't be bothered trying to bridge the gap.

There has probably been 7 or 8 sold around his at the right price. If a seller can't see that, then there is no hope and I obviously made the right decision not to call. Shame as I would have been genuinely interested and was a enthusiast buyer ...

I think this is fair valued

This would definitely be my choice!

May I suggest getting the engine number to determine whether this one can be IMS'd. Sorry, but I'm not up with which year(s) need the case split to change

Good luck!

Me likey! ... 😍

Just be aware that the IMS in the 997.1 (this car) can still go .. although nowhere near as common as the 996. The issue is that the case has to be split in order to change it. With the 996, only the gearbox needs to be dropped.

Don’t really want to get into the whole IMS thing, and I don't think it’s a reason not to buy one, but its good to go in eyes wide open and make an informed decision.

What is this $70k 996 ye speak of?? ...

hey @Fishcop - is this one of interest..? 

I realise it has been well discussed, just curious if it is a consideration?

Very much so, but not so much at that price...  I know they've had a little run in value, but I'm not putting his kids through private school.

Totally agree.

This one lives a couple of doors down from where I used to live.  Street parked, the guy has a 991 as well.  Seemed to treat it ok.

That's where I am too.  I also quite like the midnight/terracotta tippy, but would definitely prefer manual.
