Your idea of "mint" and mine don't seem to be in the same hemisphere, and to make the reference even less relevant its a Targa???

And it's a sort after model, not a sought after model, not sure, does that makes it worth more??

Tyre kickers, advice sought....

 

What are perceptions on current values and perceived future values between:

- 1981 911SC Targa in excellent condition, minor restoration work done

compared to 

- 996 turbo manual low k's, good condition

 

Pricing seems comparable, where do peoples crystal balls see these two items heading?

 

I'm obviously not in it to make a $ but do like to know that I purchased well.  As in buying a 991 Carrera S 2 years ago would leave me feeling like I did my dough unnecessarily as they seem to be depreciating hard.

Perhaps  if not done so already, to answer your question you  need to driven a stock manual 996 turbo back to back with a targa and then drive a tweaked 996 turboo whilst keeping the boost gauge at zero so it's a fair comparison with the targa performance wise whilst rowing through the gears  but then stepping it up to see at least a 1 on the boost guage dial and then reflected on which one has the WOW factor and is the 6 figure car all day every day in normal economic conditions when your behind the wheel.

And based on such a vague description you will probably be lucky to get a tyre kickers advice, not sure if it will be worth anything though. Polar opposite cars in terms of ownership.

  Surely an 81 Targa isn't in the same price range as a 996 Turbo? If it is, I wouldn't say the Targa is exactly cheap! 😳

He’s asking which one is going to drop more vs the other, or which one will go up the most.

i say the 996 ‘tis the buy.  930s languished for a long time at only a minor price margin over 911s.  That was because of cost of repairs.  You see that now with 996t vs c4s.  It won’t always be like that.

Targas have a soft future in my crystal ball.

Yikes! I wasn’t having a dig, just posting a nice looking 2.7 for some fellow tyre kickers to discuss.

I was ready to call and say I'll have it then the amended add popped up.   What a bargain it was for 10 minutes

Thanks for the opinions everyone,  good to have a think about options.  As always i'll probably get paralysis by analysis and will stay put with that I have got!

Very helpful of you, I would suggest that your post didn't need to quote me in that case.

Has anyone looked at this or know anything about this car? Would it be a candidate for a weekend hot rod ( not rallying or racing)?

Yes, if it has the usual compliance plates etc? might depend on state, I could get just about anything registered here

Does anyone know the history of this car? @DJM when did you see it offered before?

My gut says a couple of years ago.  Really not sure but just remember seeing it for sale and pretty sure saw it out at Phillip Island circuit too.

The blue car is a WA car. Have seen it out at club events. Has been largely parked up the last couple of years. Has set some cracking lap times. Is a very well put together car. Very clean and tidy. Could easily make a great weekend hot rod, track day car or more serious racer. 

 

It has reg plates on it. Just aren’t sure if it’s rally reg or full road reg. They get the same number plates in WA.

Guess I should have read the ad :)  

Qld you would probably get road reg as it. Might need the front half of the cage cut out elsewhere.

@DJM.  How about another gt2 just fast forward another six years. First time in the flesh that  I have sighted a  997 My08 gt2 ( 23k on the odometer and a lazy 680Nm of torque) which was out of the corner of my eye ( headlights first and then spoiler) that looked well out of place stuck half way between  Barbagello's Ferrari showroom and their Maserati showroom in Perth.   Not much change from 340k in terms of sticker price.

Meh GT2 was fun for a while.  Only useful on track though and too expensive for that!  My "new" track RX7 will be faster and more raw than the GT2 was and about 85% cheaper.
