Advice on sales price?

Possibly going to sell my ride... '01 boxster base, seal grey & black top/interior... 9.5/10 exterior, 9.5/10 interior... 40,100 miles, still on CPO warranty through porsche, transferrable, through 100k miles or 01/24/2010 whichever comes first (so 15 months or so left)...

stock except 18" cayman wheels, HID's (non-litronics), and maxspeed exhaust... plus softronics tune, includes cable (with 2 more free flashes) & diagnostics software as well...

what's a fair price (and are you thinking most likely i'm better off waiting till spring)?

Nice looking ride. Really tough time to sell a car. It would fetch $16-$17k in SoCal if you could actually find a buyer. No one is buying anything here. It would sell faster in the spring but maybe not for more dough. Good luck.

my "goal" is 20k, which i figure in spring will still have almost a full year warranty through any porsche dealer... something most used boxsters won't have...

texas is a little different in pricing than cali on them, we'll see if i can get there...

$20k is a good target. According to Kelly BB that would be full pop retail in Dallas for your car right now.

It might happen with the one right buyer.

I wouldn't compare anything to KBB. I've found over time that KBB has little to do with reality. Take a look at www.cars.com, www.autotrader.com, and eBay to see what Boxsters are actually selling for in your area. I'm guessing you'll find that you can get a Boxster S for about $20K. So I think that's a bit high for a base model. The longer you wait, the more the car will depreciate, so I wouldn't wait until Spring for the economy to get better (it won't by then) or for some better deal just because it would be getting warmer. Either way it's just a bad time to sell, especially for exotic and semi-exotic cars right now. I think you're looking at $16K at best or just wait it out if you're not in a hurry and see if you can get the $20K with time and the right buyer.

Just curious, why are you considering selling?

Its an akward time to be selling a car. You might find that there aren't a lot of buyers out there right now.

new wife, new house, and maybe a new baby in the next year or two... i feel that a car with a warranty direct through the mfg will be worth more, so selling it before that expires might be a benefit to not losing my ass... i'm not in a hurry to sell, i figure i can put it up for sale now, and let it display till it's gone... i enjoy it, but i also think i need a better car since i really just daily drive it instead of maximize its potential...
