If this is a no stories car, then it surely tells us that

a) its very hard to sell right now
b) part ex prices are crazy low right now


Someone could get a really good buy there. The same car , same year but with more miles is up for as much as 86k at certain dealers. Apart from anything else, its barely been used. Best gen2 colour as well imo.

The car is very low specced though, so maybe this reflects its value?

Probably nothing. Front lift is handy. Nav never gets used in any of my cars.

Think when your spending £60k+ though you want all the toys.

It'll allow someone to get in to a gen2 for the lowest price Ive ever seen. But will they suffer come resale/trade? Or maybe its all relative (pay cheap, sell cheap)

Front lift aside, what are the toys people would want in a GT3? I'd have mine bare bones! Looks near perfect to me. I'd want full on buckets, but that's about it.

YOu think there is much of a shift at Winter for the Porsche prices?
Up and down the line ? Or just the "rare" stuff?

Looks about the right price to me?

I paid similar for my gen1 at just over 3 years old, similar mileage, in winter but from an OPC.

I reckon that car at over 2.5 years old would be worth 75k tops, even at an OPC? At 86k you would be paying too much IMHO?

As previously discussed, 10-15k worth of options will only swing the price 2-3k once second hand anyway?

In that case, where does that value this at?

Seems you paid a good price, and even came with 2 yr warranty!

2010 non RS cars not worth more than any figure with a 7 at the front.

The new car, auto or not, will knock 10k out of them the minute it is released - again all IMHO?

Certainly my experience of selling my Gen 1 GT3 this year was that it has to be pretty much the cheapest car out there to shift. There are cars that were up for sale at the same time as mine which still haven’t sold 6 months later.

its a private sale, there are very few buyers with £30k cash let alone £60k plus, if you selling private and want to sell you have to sell cheap in the current market... what do we think the trade bids are on that car?

trade bid has to be far enough adrift from 66.5k so that it was worth the hassle of the fella putting private ads up

so I say around 61-63k

I went to see this one in feb, so it's been around for a while - beautiful with carbonnfibre etc but not worth £85k hence why it has not sold.

Basically the imminent effective end of the track day season clobbers GT3 prices through the winter starting about now, so the choice is price low or wait until spring. I bought a 3.8 Clubsport last December with a sensible spec for less than £75k at a couple of weeks over a year old from an OPC. This happens every year.

Not many cars at OPC's atm though. 1 RS, and 10 non-RS's. I think with all the hype etc of the 991, prices may stay strong 'this' Winter?
