The air-cooled Porsche market has been very hot in recent years, with even the “less desirable” models getting large amounts of cash. It appeared that the dream of owning a classic Porsche cooled by God’s good air would forever be out of reach for most of us.
However, there are signs that the bubble may be starting to burst. While special models are keeping strong, models like the Porsche 911 SC, 911 Carrera 3.2 and 914 may be starting to go down in value.
This video from Hoovies Garage highlights this fact. He recently bought a 911 Carrera 3.2 at what may be the top of the market. Just a few months later he turned around and sold it taking a few thousand dollar loss.
While this is just one case and Tyler is known as a poor negotiator, is this a sign of the overall market slowing? According to trends from Hagerty, air-cooled 911s are still on an up trend. Along with this there are also early signs that the housing market is slowing. If this trend continues then the classic car market may not be far behind.
For perspective buyers this means that waiting a bit to see what happens may be a good plan. For folks looking to sell their classic 911, now may be a good time to get a decent price before a market downturn. Of course we could be completely wrong, as all of this is speculation.
