agree.

i think true 3 pedal manuals will hold their value in the 911 range. for me, it's two factors --the first is rarity and the second is the prohibitive cost of PDK transmissions which cannot be repaired, but need to be replaced.

and most owners will not change the fluids every 50,000 miles.

the NA engines also should hold a premium.

i fully recognize that PDK cars are faster. and the 3.0TT motors are much better for AUC power.

Oh yes, agreed, itís a paradox of the market generally but the 911 market specifically that the cars that sell quickly when new (silver/black, PDK) are worth substantially less used than the cars with three pedals painted more adventurous colors.

Great price on that. I agree the colors wouldn't be my first choice, but solid car.

It's the simple reality that the buyers of old cars are buying them because they are interesting. If you're buying for interesting, you'll want interesting features like cool colors.
