Wow. My Dad always used to say: "If you want to know what something is worth, try to sell it." It really does pay to keep the car stock.

When a Jalopnik author writes "...One of the last truly affordable aircooled Porsches is about to get out of control, mark my words", interesting times are ahead.

I’d rather they stay cheap. I usually buy them for me, not to sell.

Funny how practical people say “look at all the great cars you could own for the same money”. This is not the rationale nor the money that drives the investment/collector market. Two totally different motivations and thought processes.

That is why the practical people don’t buy the same cars as the investors/collectors and visa versa.

"but there are so many cars that provide a much better driving experience for less"

I'm surprised they even know what a 914 is.

Way way more to the passion for the 914 than a rationale comparison to "other cars" If your making that kind of comparison you don't get it.

Actually it "pays" to not only keep a car stock, but to not drive it. One needs to be insane to not drive their car. What's the point in a fun car if you just look at it and trailer it to shows? That's not my kind of fun but I understand that some people get enjoyment out of it.

I think anyone who can afford $93K for a "mint in box" 914 can easily afford to have a second one to take out and play with. I'm glad that out of the 113K or so 914s made, that there are a handful of museum time capsules surviving. The only part that bothers me is that this is another outlier data point that pulls the resale average up and will work its way into valuations in the buyers guides.

Some of these guys have collections of 50,100,300 cars. Many of them don’t show them off like Jay Leno or Magnus Walker. More like personal museums than active garages.

My extensive collection consists of two cars total - a ‘70 six and an 88 E30 M3.

Both driver quality, both 10 footers and both driven routinely. The E30 is my Florida daily driver. Coincidently both white.

I get the collector/garage queen/investor mindset, I just don’t have it. Neither car will ever be concours restorations. Like to drive and connect with the cars in a visceral way and I find they reflect my personality as is.

I also find that when I show up at a C&C or similar type event in either car that either car is the only one of its kind there, sometimes among 100’s of other cars, especially in the 914. Always fun!

That car had hell hole rust. I was there, and I looked it over pretty well.

If it did not have the Brumos name attached, and not been sold at Goodings - that would have been a $15K car here - maybe $20k.

I doubt it was bought to drive, but it was showing signs of dry rot in the rubber. The hell hole had no more paint on it, and was rusty. I did not probe it, so I don't know how thin it was, but it looked worse then the hell hole on my car, and I still cut out the battery tray and grafted in metal on the long and firewall. No idea the state of the engine.

It is a BEAUTIFUL car, and I was looking forward to seeing it weeks before I left for Amelia. I'm glad its owner got $85K for it.

I will say this for the Goodings people - they know how to run an auction. The auctioneer was GOOD. He was funny. He knew the people there to buy had money, and he knew how to play them to wring that money out. There was energy in that room that I just did not see in other auctions that week.

I’ve shown up at c&c and gotten a bigger crowd on my 10 footer 914-4 than some of the Lambos and Ferrari’s. Either they had a 914 or grew up around one. People either connect with our cars or want to know what it is and where you keep the engine. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
