What value should I put on my Porsche 944 Turbo?

I own a Porsche 944 Turbo 1987. I have owned it since 1990 and it only has one previous owner with a mileage of 91,000. It failed its MoT for the first time this summer due to rust where the sills join the chassis, so will need new sills and some welding. But otherwise the bodywork and engine are good. I intend to sell it privately to someone who wants to restore it. I am unsure what price range I should be asking?

These cars are much sought after at the moment - ones in superb condition can often be seen on a forecourt with a price tag of £20k (or more). Because of this, we don't see a lot of projects - owners often figure that it's worth spending the money on doing them up. However, if you choose to go down this route remember that it can be a long and expensive process with costs overrunning and a lot of extra jobs cropping up either as problems are uncovered or 'while you're there...' If you are set on selling it, you'll probably be looking at something around the £3k-£4k mark - remember this is only a guide. Try to find a similar model to yours in the classifieds and set your price accordingly.
