Let's Play: Guess How Much

Thing has some good options but park assist on a car designed and marketed as lightened? Not a fanclub member of the wheels either, you guys tell me if you think it's worth ninety.

I'm not a fan of the Spyder top, but that one is striking! I love the white seat backs and roll bar. The red accents really are a nice touch. I would want black wheels for contrast.

For me, no, it isn't worth $90k. I'm sure it is for someone.

Here is a close comp at $80K: Pre-owned Search - North America - Porsche Cars North America Inc.

I love the new Spyders! I've ridden in one on the street and on the track and they are simply amazing compared to my early 986.

I love the spiders, no way is this worth $90k you can buy them new at the dealer for less, like in the $75k-$79K range, the color of the wheels on this one are not stock, I prefer silver or BLK. rims.

I'm going to swing for the fences on this car, I hope I can afford a used spyder. If not, the bright side is shopping for one makes the S seem like a bargain, everything is relative.

No way would I pay 90K for a boxster . At that point, you're into low mileage 360 Modena territory .

I like the new Modena, the older affordable 11 year old units have the lights that don't do it for me. It's also a V8 guzzler and I'm certain a car nobody near me will service.

You're talking about the Italia? That's a little more pricey.

I don't think so, the newer modena has updated lights, I'm already wondering what it would be like asking my local Porsche dealer to enforce the warranty on an out of state internet buy, would have no where to take the prancing black horse at all...

If you go to Scottsdale to check out the Spyder they have a 2010 Italia too!

Then maybe you're talking about the F430? They're still way up in price too, they'll slide for a while now that the Italia has been introduced.

Modena:

F430:

Didn't the 430 go to the 450 which is reported to be more robust and cheaper to repair, the one I was was a spider, I'll go get it and post it.

It's the 2005 F430 spyder that I like the lights are far cooler

Yes, I've seen 360's in the 70K range. However, newer, low mileage ones are in the 80-90k plus range . My goal over the next year is to pick a pristine 2004 Challenge Stradale .

Anyone who's half knowledgeable will avoid the F1 transmission like a plague. Hence the low asking price.
