Gen 1 997 turbo values

The asking price of Gen 1 turbos are all over the place at the moment.
Is anyone currently researching? After cutting past the over-priced cars, where are we at? I have a manual Gen 1 997 turbo registered '06 with 24,000 miles. What the heck is it worth right now?!
 
Thanks

    Retail or private sale? I'm seeing some cars up there and over £70K but at the Porsche Centres lower.

    I’m looking for one and have been for nearly a year, depending on spec, provenance and of course price. Is it worth a conversation? You can get me on 07736 599819

    To give you my recent experience. I bought a MY08 997.1 Turbo 6MT Cabriolet with 39.5k miles (Acaptive Sports Seats, Triple Black) for £69k from a London OPC in April 2017. My local OPC since fitted OEM Short shifter, Sports Steering Wheel, Gear Lever and Handbrake, and the Sports Option (minus the wart) for approx, £2.4k since then. I was contemplating a sale this month (clock now at 41.2 k miles) and checked out the bottom price (we buy any car) who offered £45k and a reputable specialist offered £55k, but the surprising offer of £47k came from my local OPC which was very similar to what I thought the lowest would be. PCGB valuation certificate come in at £72.5k. I no longer need to sell but I thought these numbers would be of interest.

    The margin for the OPC is outrageous, I’m still looking. There are a number of cars advertised but when you enquire, you have non OPC garages not the Porsche specialists selling with a warranty that’s not worth a salt for example one warranty had a claim limit of £500, there are service history issues, overevving data issues, cars with no documentation, condition below par, front end needs re painting and so on 
     
    as as a previous posted said provenance and ownership history are critical as well as mileage and condition
     
    ..... the search continues

    there seems to be a large price difference between some turbo's and Im not sure why, Ive been looking at prices for several months, the range is long from £55-£80, very sensitive to 
    Mileage,history,spec,colour,owners,year, so much to consider. I want to change my Carrera S for a Turbo, not for the performance but for the ownership and looks, I think £55-60k gets you a decent one from a specialist, £60-65 gets you most boxes ticked,£70k gets you an 08 1.5 which we all want. All down to budget at end of the day.

    I spent 18 months looking at cars must have seen 10 in the flesh and enquired about another 15.
     
    huge variety in quality as you suggest. I nearly gave up but then found an 09 Gen 1.5.
     
    It also depends whether you want a decent warranty as some of the specialist warranties have low claim limits 
     
    good luck with the search

    sounds nice, it doesn't surprise me it took so long to find, that's why iv'e started looking now as im not really in the market for another 6 months, I am very fussy with my cars, as im sure you are. I am interested in your opinion on carbon or standard brakes, i dont track my cars but feel the Turbo deserves them, if nothing else for the colour, what was you looking for in particular for options?
