If you are going to try to get at GTS at some point, maybe now is the time to sell?

I'm definitely curious what this ends up going for so I know how much money I left on the table by not wanting to deal with BaT

My car is the value hole of the Porsche lineup. Even assuming I could get top money for it, I couldn't get anywhere near enough to replace it with anything interesting.

And I don't believe that I'll ever actually be able to buy a GTS.

Oh ye of little faith.

You may be right. But I have a hard time believing Porsche will fail to sell every GTS for which there is a buyer. It just might take until 2025.

Only a couple of hours left on that black one. Still stuck at 28.

And yeah, JV, I think you’re being overly optimistic on production of these cars.

Sold for 33250, which seems like a steal (though that's 35K with buyer's premium). JV may not have left that much on the table, after all.

Maybe it doesn't matter with Boxsters, but this black one is a fairly low-option car. I'm biased of course, but ours was a better spec in a more interesting color plus it was two model years newer. This one did have heated seats which I would have loved to have in ours Mine had some tire-mounting damage to the clear coat on the wheels and some rock chips, this car looked maybe a touch cleaner?

Either way I have no regrets selling it to the people who bought it; they were amazingly easy to deal with and lovely people. We both seemed to be happy about the price which is about all one can ask for.
