January 2017
manual avg - $76,500 with 31k avg miles
auto avg - $71,500 with 29k avg miles

August 2018
manual avg - $83,800 with 34k avg miles
automa avg - $71,000 with 34k avg miles

difference between autos and manuals grew
Awesome work! Thanks for the information.

Good makes me feel better about modifying my undesirable tip/cab...Instead of looking at it I'll be driving

Thanks for the info and makes perfect sense for manual nostalgia

Keep us posted!

NJB997 is an unknown quantity at this point
A couple thoughts...

I agree that the manual transmission is a huge value issue and these cars with low miles, right color, excellent condition, and sensible mods if any...are holding value and even going up. Also, if a person appropriately addresses the coolant fitting issue (welding BBI fittings and add Sharkwerks kit) and has both cam sleeves "pinned"...you will add even more value to any buyers who do their research.

I agree 100%

I don't ever see myself "upgrading" to a 991 as I just love the 6spd driving experience.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see $85-$100k 997tt 6spd prices as a norm.

Look at how high gated Ferraris have gone, and those cars suck!

The involment a 6 speed manual Turbo (996/997) gives a spirited driver it's very intoxicating.
Best if accentuaded by conservative mods (Exhaust, ECU upgrade, Short Shifter).
Some wheel spacers and those beautiful Fabspeed quad-tips for looks don't hurt none either.
Yes, prices on 996T/997T with 6 speed trannys will continue to rise. Bullet proof cars all around.

There is no shortage of $85,000 plus 07-08 turbos for sale right now. Between Autotrader and Car GurusI would say at least a dozen or so. None are selling just sitting for sale.

people buy these cars in the spring so they can enjoy during the summer. less buyers in fall/winter. also most companies pay their commissions/bonuses at YE, so buyers have more money to put to work at that time of year vs now

This has me thinking.......................

If I found a high mile, well serviced tip coupe.......on the CHEAP

I'd daily it all day long while lovingly embracing the patina that comes from years and years and years of high miles.

I think I'll begin my hunt... In January.

and so began the tradition of owning two 997tt in the garage, thereby increasing the tip values over time

you know it buddy.

I'm seeing a couple nice examples on autotrader with mid 50's ASK


If there is one to be had for low 40's I'm there.

A little accident history and paint work.... NO PROBLEM

The title should be changed to “997.1 tiptronics.” Opposed to “997” as the 997.1 manuals and 997.2’s have increased in price significantly, and continue to do so...
