A Porsche 911 Carrera G50 Coupe selling for under $50,000 is a rarity but this Guards Red over Champagne model selling on Bring-a-Trailer (BAT) is tracking to do just that.
It is currently bid to $20,911 with three days left in the auction. Based on BAT auction history, the car may double in price at this point, making it a $40,000 - $50,000 car. It would be unusual for the price to increase three times at this point to match the more market correct price of $67,500 achieved by a similarly equipped 1988 Carrera sold on BAT just last week.
What is holding the price down on this 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera G50?
There are several factors that may be holding this car back from gaining its fair price compared to the previously sold Carrera with the G50 transmission:
Repaint from the original Carmine Red to Guards Red
Spoiler painted incorrectly (vents should be painted black instead of body color)
Mileage is unknown due to speedometer repair but showing 108,000 miles
Overall the car is just not gaining much attention, with below average number of comments on it. Is a Guards Red Porsche 911 just too common on the market?
The previous sale of the Porsche 911 Carrera featured a black over black car that is always popular and in demand for a Porsche 911. The already sold black Carrera G50 was a stock, original, one-owner car without the front and rear spoiler. It was presented very well and gained a lot of attention from Porsche commentators. The attractiveness and resulting strong price of the Black G50 911 was:
Color Combination of Black over black
Originality of a one-owner car
Classic 911 look without the spoilers
