I think if you want accurate feedback, for this car or any other, you should be including much more info namely, service history (number of oil changes), parts that have been changed as part of routine maintenance as well as preemptive repair, whether the shocks are original (ditto for control arms) if this were a higher mileage car, any options that were included, condition of the bodywork (number of panels that need addressing), condition of the top and rear window (new top is ~$1,500), condition of the rear tires, whether the car sat idle for extended periods, etc., etc., etc.

ROSENFE,

In the classified section of the Austin newspaper today (Austin American Statesman) there is a 1999 Boxster for sale with 8,600 miles.
The owner wants $19,000 for it.

I think the 25K car for $12,000 is a much better deal.

There is a reason we say, "Keep Austin Weird"

I have seen some unusually high prices for Porsches in certain cities in Texas. And cars tend not to sit for very long. It makes me think outliers.
