This month they start on watches which wi be interesting given the amount of sharks in that business.

Watch dealers are total rip off merchants so it’ll be good to see the Bid/offer tighten up.

I think that is a fair price for a nice example of a 964RS.

As someone who has avidly followed data & prices of these cars for years, my pre close expectation was £160-165k.

Let's not forget they made over 2000 examples of the 64 RS and the current price point puts you into the territory of 997 & 991.1 GT3 RS amongst other considerations?

This is why CC is so good - it does it’s job very efficiently, cheaply and importantly quickly.

Glad you’re happy R. I think the speed element is something that is really important and not to be underestimated. Also the fact that you still have ownership/it’s in your garage and not on a dealer’ s premises....however good their reputation is.

I was on the emotional rollercoaster for you R, was really exciting watching the last minute and last second bidding, and then seeing the time extend... like a game of chicken, haha.

Congrats on sale. Look forward to see the next steed, sure it will be special. wink

It’s funny as a family we did the same pleading with either Ashgood or Pancake to bid again and extend the auction.

Good luck with the sale

GT3M / TDT thanks for your virtual support - I have to say it was quite a relief / rush when it finally started happening - lots of arm waving and shouting at the screen - would have been very funny to watch I’m sure smile

I thought the photography of your car was very good.
The detail in the numbering of the panels matched to the shell number is rarely shown ... and I think it's very unusual to have the original locking wheel nuts with keys ...
And the colour !
A very very nice car very fairly presented.
As for the price, if the consensus is that a private individual has bought well and a dealer might struggle to make a "generous" margin ... and the car is sold rather than possibly being a showroom ornament ... couldn't that be the definition of a fair deal ?

I agree - good result all round - very happy smile

Spoke to the new owner today who was lovely and I’m very excited for him - it’s a great car smile

I love what CC’s delivers.

A platform for enthusiasts cars both private and retail alike where there is no preferential treatment and the private buyer gets to compete with the trade rather than pay SOR prices which also means the seller pays no fees.

They are starting on watches shortly which will be great.

Watch dealers in my experience are thieves so tightening that market up will be just what It needs.

Only issue with watches is knowing what you’re buying due to the countless fakes out there.

I sold with CC (of all things) a completely original un-corroded 1971 Morris Minor 1000 with 15,000 genuine miles on the clock.

It didn't bring as much a I hoped ... but it did sell and the purchaser was a great enthusiast who will make more of the car than I could.

We discovered that we both shared amateur racing history and the car was better than he had hoped ... result smile

And I needed room in my garage ...

I thought the columnist’s car in Total911 this month looked familiar, yep it’s the same car as listed with CC.

TJS seemingly has an ability to sell low mileage PTS cars at prices nobody else can dream of and is happy to take as long as he needs for that one buyer to come along. The low mileage cars go to Collectors who probably will never drive them and want these pristine examples.

20 % on top - he’ll never sell that if he doesn’t adjust the price. I tried to buy it when I was looking 20 months or so ago - wouldn’t move a euro and it had already been sitting there for over a year back then.

I know I’m biased, but I do think the deal on mine was good for the buyer - no regrets from me , very happy. smile

Seems to be a common theme with CC. Great service, super speedy, enthusiastic buyers. Just a slight tinge of disappointment on the price achieved. Definitely got the job done for me with my 997 GT3, but a couple of k more would have been perfect!
