    Bobby (or other Porsche-heads), what do you think a car like this 928S should sell for?



    Description:
    Pristine 1984 Porsche 928S with 35,000 original miles. Black exterior, black interior. All services done by Porsche dealerships and completely up to date. New wheels, tires and Brembo disc brakes. Not a scratch

    I think only one of those questions is actually important to you. The first step is admitting you have a problem?

    Funny, didn't say if it was manual or not. I had just assumed it was. Forgot that it could be automatic.

    I am certainly assuming it is not RHD. AFAIK car was purchased and has always been in the U.S.

    Manual or Auto is a big determining factor. Bromo might have a better idea of value. Those are coming back into popularity and so the price is going up.

    So the wheels are off a center lock car or supposed to look like it. And new aftermarket brakes. Neither help the "value" if the car but were likely cheaper and better options than OEM.

    Id say low 20s shooting from the hip. Id have to do some research as I have never had one.

    OK, interesting. That's lower than I expected. I assume if manual a little higher price? I thought the 928S was supposed to be pretty good (as in, I was expecting it to command more money).

    I really don't trust 80s and 90s cars with low mileage. Cars should be driven for optimal performance. Seals and moving parts will wear better. I would rather have a 100k mile Porsche than a 30k mile Porsche from just about any era.

    Then again most BAT peeps just want the status and not the maintenance of a classic car. As a DIY guy I just don't get not driving these cars.

    I drove one of those. Owner took my 944 turbo. Testarossa could not keep up with the 944T. It was badass though, sounded amazing, was uncomfortable to drive.

    Manual def more $$. But 928 autos are still loved by the enthusiasts as it's a GT car. Basinbeater just restored and sold one last year so he's better than me on pricing for 928s. Initially I thought low 30s but the 84s had less power in the US... maybe low 20s or so given nice condition and low mileage. If there're a bunch of receipts mapping out the condition of cooling/engine/drivetrain then maybe add a few thousand.

    Yeah, there's a bit of a double-edged sword on the classics. Run them regularly and they're reliable for use but require more $$ in regular maintenance. Or run them less to minimize wear & tear, but that means they're less reliable & more prone to something that can leave you stranded. With my 996 I drove it nonstop & ate the maintenance. Very reliable on long trips... that thing loved to run on the highway. Kinda want to buy another one to be honest. It's such a fun car to get in every day. Requires several grand/year to run em though.

    Thanks. At that price I guess I can't afford not to buy it.

    No, I was aware--sarcasm meter gone awry? Don't worry, though--no judgments.

    Ah.

    At least I was able to finally step up and admit I have a problem, so thank you for that.

    They feel like a dump truck by modern standards.

    Some think Bmills just took a break from TRG but he was actually feeding the addiction in Lima.

    I loved the 928. Mine was an auto. It was a fantastic daily commuter car, and it hauled ass for extended periods across southern Idaho, and was very comfortable. Loved it.
    The electrical systems on these are crazy. But often a good cleaning of all the grounds will bring stuff back to life. Very maintenance intensive, crazy timing belt jobs, transaxle clutch jobs, auto flex plate tensioning. But very satisfying to drive.

    This car also eats up the miles with similar aplomb in a vintage style with V8 power. Manual tranmissions are a little more affordable than the 928, and the electrical systems are WAY more down to earth, ( and generally quite reliable). Just took this thing down to Torrey UT at sustained high speeds and it was fantastic.
    Into this car about $4500. 95 540i 6 speed trans. 4.0 V8. Not really in Bobby's wheelhouse. But squarely in mine.

    Ok, maybe not exact same then...

    He actually had three. The black e34 540i V8 6MT was the first, and 100% factory. Really great car. It was replaced by an e39 sedan with an M62TU V8. Still fast, but it felt big. That was replaced by E61 wagon with the I6 (boring, but practical).
