It keeps on going through the auctions, but it "looks" ok.  It is the best a 997.1 gets due to it having a PCM3.

Clean manual coupe at that price would be a bargain.
Any one knows the story behind this cab?

Wow are they that cheap these days?  Seems like a great cruiser for warm summer evenings

A lot of Porsche and classic car websites and forums are predicting upward trajectories for the 996/997 Turbo models, following skyrocketing prices for the respective GT3/GT2/RS's, and also steep rises for the 964 and 993 Turbo models.  The 996 does 0-100 in 4.2 and the 997 in 3.7, which is a hell of a lot of car for not much money these days. For example:

997 Turbo with 30,000km asking $160k

996 Turbos with 50,000km asking $95-97k

The term "Future Classic" is thrown around a lot these days, but do people think the 996 and/or 997 Turbo models fit the bill?

997.2 turbo will be sought after in the future as they are significantly better than the .1s, plus they are rarer.  I don't think a 996 turbo will ever command much of a premium.

A mate of mine is selling his 996 Turbo (auto) for $80k, which seems cheap but he has put 200,000+ kms on it.

We sold our 05 Turbo Cab manual about 18 months ago for just under $100K but most Cabrio buyers seemed to be wanting the Tiptronic.

Manual .1 vs PDk .2 which one is rarer?

.2 PDK by far.  There just aren't that many .2s around.  I am not sure if you could get a manual .2 in Australia either.

Fair enough .2's are still expensive or that's as low as they get?  $60k more than .1 manual.
Guess I will have to wait as I don't want to get rid of my other cars.
