Today’s Tempting Porsches were both sent in by PorschePerfect.com readers. A couple of VERY tempting buys here.
Tempting Porsche #1
The first Tempting Porsche was sent in by “wolfy” (hopefully you know who you are). It’s a 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera. Looked like a decent car from the pictures. Nothing super special, but a nice Guards Red mid-80’s 911. Check out the Craigslist description:
I’m having to sell this car because of divorce. There are just some things asshole husbands shouldn’t be able to take away from you. Don’t even consider contacting me if you aren’t willing to take very special care of this car. The price is ridiculously low and not negotiable. She is red with black leather interior and a black convertible top. She has 83,960 miles. After market Sony Explode AM/FM/CD stereo w/detachable faceplate & Memphis speakers. Convertible top and carpeting replaced in 2005.
Shouldn’t people work things out so the Porsche doesn’t have to suffer? Come on, people do it for their kids. The one thing I’d be a little leary of is the “Explode” stereo. Hopefully the wife didn’t add that with other motives in mind.
Price: $9850. A dang good deal if the car is in decent condition. I’m regularly seeing these cars go for the mid-$15k range in the Portland area. Sometimes higher and this one has pretty low mileage.
Tempting Porsche #2
The second Tempting Porsche was submitted by Tim. This one was on a local car dealer lot in the Portland, OR area. It’s a 2000 Porsche Carrera with only 29,000 miles on it. Here are some details on the car:
Clean Carfax Shows 1 Carful owner with only 29K original miles. Paint, leather like new runs and drives outstanding. Rare to find this nice with this low miles. Bright blue with Grey leather Chrome alloys. Outstanding car.
First of all, I need to pull different Carfax reports on cars I look at, because I didn’t know they showed how careful or not an owner was.
I don’t love the blue. Ever since I got rid of the blue minivan a few years ago, that color has always felt a bit dated to me. This car also carries what I call the “Sid” factor. The Porsches on Sid’s lot tend to be very competitively priced, but almost every one of them need some work to bring them up to snuff. Oftentimes it’s just cosmetic stuff, but still gotta put some cash into them. Still could be a great deal at the advertised price of $24,000.
