The Bitter Chocolate over Gold 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 Coupe we featured back in early July is back up for sale, this time as a no reserve auction. With the starting bid set at $77,000 this is priced higher than where the previous reserve auction we featured ultimately finished ($71,100), but the price isn’t too far off so I imagine there will be interest here. While the market for the US-spec Carrera 2.7 is not nearly as white hot as that for the Euro Carrera 2.7 MFI, these cars still are performing quite well and might be one of the examples that continues to increase in value as the market takes further notice of the mid-year 911.
All posts in Revisit
This is somewhat of a long-term revisit as we originally featured this beautiful Ruby Red Metallic 1983 Porsche 911SC back in April 2014 and it has now come back up for auction. Looking at our original post it looks like this 911SC was bid up to about $31K, but then the listing was ended prior to auction’s end. Perhaps the seller wasn’t getting as much bidding as hoped, but either way it is back. Air-cooled 911 values have continued their upward trajectory over the past year, though at a more gradual pace than when this car was first for sale. As I wrote before, the combination of low miles and an excellent exterior color should garner this SC plenty of attention and should it sell I imagine it will make its new owner very happy!

The Grey 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe we featured in early July has come back up for auction. This time the starting bid has been lowered from $49,500 to $39,500, but it is up as a reserve auction rather than with no reserve. The seller probably will not have budged much on price, but hopefully we’ll at least see some bids this time around. Whether it will meet the seller’s reserve, we will have to see.

The 1988 BMW M5 we featured last month did not sell at an ask of almost $70,000. Now the seller has reduced the price by $5,000. Are we closer to the mark or perhaps testing the parameters of the current market?

The Cassis Red over Burgundy 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe we featured in late June has come around for another reserve auction so we’ll see if this very attractive color scheme can find itself a new owner. The previous auction received quite a bit of attention, but bidding ended short of the reserve at $36,402. With this auction currently sitting at $32,099 we may be in store for another missed sale.
