You haven't lost me yet. If I can't get close to the asking price, I'm keeping the car a bit longer. The problem for me is that I'm just not driving it much anymore and I originally bought it to be driven.

I am with you! I just won't give any of my babies away! Several of them are for sale (perpetually it seems) but I don't even bother listing them any more. If someone is looking for a car that I have available I always offer it up, but no one is interested. They think they can buy a $4k S and for $5k more have it as nice as my '84... HA! Never gonna happen, but you know how it is. Easy to spend $4k and then have it nickle and dime you for 5 years than to just drop $9k and be done with it and be proud of it and just go drive...

To help answer some possible questions

How old is the paint, Bob?
If original is the clear lifting?

The paint is great. The only blemish is that there is some bubbling on the fuel door. Remember that this car is garaged 99% of the time and only taken out in great weather.

OK, I'm lowering the price to Blue Book value at $25,500. If I can't sell it at this price, I'm going to keep it for another few years.

Actually, that is right at the Blue Book high and is the lowest price I'm willing to go. I haven't seen much success selling normally used 928's even in excellent condition. Mine looks great, but at 95K miles, it has been used -- and I got a great deal on it 11 years ago when I bought it. It's a fair price from an objective perspective in a bad economy.

That is true, we did have a bad economy 11 years ago didn't we?! Well, high blue book is always going to be off on such a low volume car as a GTS! I think it is WAY OFF, because I am sure my '94 is worth $45k and my '92 MUST be worth $50k since it is the only one in the US, and my '95 since it is the last year has to be worth $75k! LOL!

Actually, we did have a bad economy 11 years ago as well as today. We 928 owner's keep saying the car is worth more than the Blue Book, but I can't find any evidence that is true. Perhaps if the car had 10K miles on it, I could ask more, but it doesn't. I think the reason for it is the cost of repair and the fact that most Porsche people like 911's and don't like our sharks.

James, if you think my '93 is worth a lot more, I'm willing to accept a higher offer from you??????

I think they are WORTH more, but I only buy when I think I am getting a smokin' deal! LOL! I am terrible, but I subscribe to the "don't pay more than you have to" rule. My '95 w/ 104k miles was less than $23k (but needed some work...a whole lot of work after it hit a deer too I might add) and of course EURO85 was $3600 and #295 was $3750... LOL! I love it when I get my monies worth, and I think I did on each of the last 3 cars I have purchased!

Good luck with the sale and I hope you get every penny of your asking price!

You are quite correct too, there is little evidence that supports GTS's above $35k these days. Exceptions exist of course (super rare, or really low miles), but in general for the average or even the concours winning cars with 60k-ish miles on them, they just are not going for anything above $35k and those would even be rare cases.

I'd be happy with blue book on this one. I've replaced everything that has had even minor problems like the PSD and steering gear having spent about 10 grand on maintenance and goodies over the past 11 years. Even at book, this will be a fun buy for someone.

You have done pretty well at $1k/year average! That is actually GREAT by most standards! Sounds like this car will be ready to go for someone who is in the market for a good driver GTS!

I already have two interested buyers at my price. They were both blown away at the quality of the car. I'll probably let it go to one of them by this weekend unless a higher offer comes through.

Well, the buyers got cold feet. I'm going to keep the car for another few years. It's now time to invest in some maintenance, i.e., timing belt. It will be done at Powertech in a couple of weeks. They always have a backlog.

I think you will look back on your decision to keep the car for a while longer as the smart move. As James indicated, in the right scenario, your car could easily bring more than the latest asking price.
