I suppose it's no surprise that like many a petrolhead, spending time cruising the classifieds is not a strange habit. It could be likened in fact to a lady window shopping in her local designer outlet village and coming home with nothing but a receipt from Pret a Manger. When you spend that much time hang out in the classifieds and coupled with a bit of talk among those in the trade you start to gauge a picture. So understanding the dynamics of used Porsche prices at the current time is not hard, but it does require some clear thinking and a bit of honesty if you are to judge the right price for a potential purchase.
Just like me you will probably also see a variety of posts on social media from folk wondering why their pride and joy hasn't sold even when advertised at 'below market price' and acting quite bewildered by this situation. Often this belief is supported and upheld by their fraternity, reaction is often a cocktail of denial and head scratching. But were somebody to suggest that said advertised car might be keenly priced, you will literally be marched to Tyburn for suggesting such an outrageous idea.
There is truth though, and it's cold and it's hard.
This year Bedford is hosting its inaugural Festival of Motoring event on the weekend of the 1st & 2nd of June. Steve (Bushman) has been doing a grand job of representing the OC in discussions with the organisers to secure a club dedicated area for up to 15 cars, on both days of the festival. It would be great if we could get a good turnout for this.
The plan will be a proper club stand with a gazebo, club banners up etc.
The event promises to be fairly impressive and would be great for the OC to be part of the event's premier. More info is below and on the official event website here: https://www.bedfordfestivalofmotoring.com

Porsche unveiled the Cayman to the world in 2005 and went on sale to the public later in that year. The Cayman was initially only available in 'S' guise with the 3.4-litre engine carried across from it's then a more junior sibling, the Boxster. The following year, in 2006 Porsche released the base model Cayman with a 2.7-litre engine and 5-speed manual gearbox.
