Looks really sharp Mark!

Good lick with it!

By the way, my 930 is a out a week away from being ready to put on the block. Are you not concerned that buyers slow down in the winter months? I am wondering if I should hold mine off until spring as much as I really don't want to.

Thank you John, I really appreciate your comments.

As far as timing the sale of your 930, IMHO spring is a better time to sell, but frankly at any time of the year, you just need one person ready to buy. There are people looking at Bring a Trailer from around the world. There are many places where winter, our winter, is irrelevant.

So, your odds might be better in the spring, but nothing is definite and the market can drop between now and then too, right?
Anyway, I want to get mine out of the garage, so the timing is good for me right now.
Good luck selling your 930 !!
Take care,
Mark

The market for air-cooled Porsches is pretty stable. Serious customers are looking all year. There is not really a season. Sometimes, they even command higher prices in the winter because more people have the time to look.

Hope you were happy with the selling price! I had to dig deep in my pockets/wallet to get my 914-6 M471 several months ago.!
