Week after week, Porsche prices seem to climb further and further, with no end in sight. What is it that makes the vintage Porsches so popular? Is it the performance? The engineering? Maybe because people are nostalgic and want to get away from the bloated models like the Cayenne and Panamera, as good as a drive they may be. One Porsche that seems to be holding the line a bit when it comes to values is the 968. But even these sports cars are starting to climb their way up the value ladder, like this well preserved 968 Coupe for sales in Pennsylvania. Equipped with the desirable 6-speed manual in Guards Red, this takes me back to the good old days when I still wanted a Porsche new out of the box from the showroom floor.

The 968 Coupe is honestly one of my favorite Porsches of all time, right alongside the 911 Clubsport that appeared in the late 1980s. These just have a timeless look about them and for a car that’s over 20 years old, you would still get the occasional passerby asking “is that the new Porsche?” Approaching $35,000, this is a steep ask for a 968 Coupe with over 50,000 miles. From where we’ve seen values as of late for early 968 Coupes with a 6-speed manual, I’d say this car is maybe around $5,000 to $8,000 overpriced. A Porsche dealer is offering this car for sale, so that explains a bit of the inflation in the price. For this ask, I’d want a full set of records to come along with this car, however, it is not explained whether those exist. If someone is willing to pay full price, this would need to be a “no questions asked” kind of car. It certainly appears that way, but beauty, sometimes, can be skin deep.
That would be perhaps a fair price – for a rare color with LSD, sports seats, and 17″ factory rims – not a Guards Red base car no matter how low the miles.
That said, time may be coming when this was a good price. The 968 is the lowest production stand-alone model Porsche ever imported to the US. Most have suffered from differed maintenance. Beware too that parts for these are becoming expensive and hard to find. Lots of unique bits.
Wish I still had my Amazon Green ’93…
