I appreciate appreciation

Seems like strong money for a low mileage '02 S. Maybe we are all gonna be rich someday?

IMO low mileage=unloved
Hopefully the new owner does it justice.

That is a fat stack of cash, though.

Yep. The seller should be really happy with that. I was too.
I bought this one:

Never regretted buying this car with its particular options, but glad to see I wasn’t absolute top of market.

I bought my '04 a few years ago with ~13k on the clock and have given it tons of DD love ever since!

BAT sales always bring a premium in price. Not sure exactly why (when an equivalent car can often be bought at a much lower price from a private party), but there is no doubt that they do.

As such, I don't consider BAT sales to be indicative of the market or where the market is going (I consider them outliers). But that's just me.

Auctions are dangerous things! Years ago I bought and sold high-end computer video cards on eBay. The best way to sell was always by auction. People who have little/no auction experience see the red fog and don't want to lose!

Yeah, there's a guy in FL who breaks every rule in my Wheeler Dealer book yet he still sells his Porsches on BAT for good money. He sells very high mileage Porsches, many times with accident damage. Sure, he's not bagging top, top dollar, but he is getting good numbers. I'm sure he was able to buy those cars for a song. If I had a high mileage Porsche with accident damage, I wouldn't even get a phone call. I SMH and admire his stones (most of his auctions are no reserve), but he has a cult following and always seems to get good money for what he has for sale. I have no plans to dip my toe into his niche. Too risky for me.

Another strong price on BAT for a well sorted Boxster.

I have been tracking Porsche sales on BAT for several years. I have been anticipating a drop in number of auctions and prices given are current state of things. Good cars are still commanding large numbers. 2008 RS 60 Spyder w/28K miles sold at $32K.
