    Market is soft.

    My question is was that car sold by the Dutch Government in 2006 for $74,200, or is that a typo?

    An '88 TR went for $64,400 all-in.

    '74 Dino 246 GTS, $302,000 all-in.

    '98 550 Maranello, $78,400 all-in.

    '65 275 GTS, $1,300,000 all-in.

    '05 Superamerica, $280,000 all-in. 9,000 miles. Hammer estimate was $325 to $375.

    But some Porsches still seem strong for reasons I can not understand.

    $1.226.000 all in. Driver quality.

    Figure $500k for a resto if you want to.

    Or keep as is and drive it.

    Seems to be market.

    How would spending additional $500K make a car less drivable? :confused:
    Shouldn’t spending efforts & money, especially on mechanical restoration, improve a (vintage) cars drivability/usability?

    I mean, the car as is looks good enough to enjoy and drive. If you spend $500k on a resto, you might want to trailer it to concours instead of driving it. I would probably keep as is and drive it.

    Sounds right.

    I almost bought the Sophia Loren 275 GTS that needed some interior work for just over $100k in 2004. I wish I had!

    My 330 2+2 that I did buy was less than half of that!

    It was in better condition, and I had a toddler that needed a third seat. So a practical vintage Ferrari decision.

    Had I only known...

    5127 GT is going to a very good home in San Diego and will be properly restored back into original color Grigio Fumo.
