Retail value of a reconditioned 3.6 / 3.8 l Carrera

  • Hello everyone,


    How many of you have had the engine of your 997 3.6 l (M96.05) or 3.8 l (M97.01) Carrera overhauled in a recognized specialist workshop, i.e. addressed the problem of scoring in the running surfaces, and then sold the car at some point? How did the investment in the overhaul (I estimate that this amounts to around 12 - 15 kEUR if you optimize all 6 Lokasil cylinders) affect the selling price?


    (Please do not discuss which is the best revision method or company)


    Thanks for your feedback :thumbsup: and I'm looking forward to it!

    997 VFL 3,6 l Coupé als Handschalter.


    911er sind einige der wenigen Kunstwerke, die schneller als 250 km/h fahren !

  • Albert gave me a revised 4.0 engine in the 997, which was a lot of fun, but I didn't get any significant extra money for the "trade-in". I didn't expect that either. Unfortunately, there aren't enough people who know what they're talking about and I don't feel like waiting for someone who does.

  • The question is what you want to compare.

    With a vehicle with high mileage and a new revision, you will be able to sell the vehicle more easily, but never with a 15k premium.

    An engine overhaul does not turn an old car into a new one.

    It's even more difficult with a vehicle with low mileage. Here I prefer to buy the unrepaired one and put the money back for the worst case.

  • The risk with used cars is borne by the current owner (not everyone is an owner...;-) ).

    As a buyer, I expect a car in good working order. I assume that it has been properly serviced and repaired. I don't consider other vehicles...so the overall condition and history before overhaul or not describe the price for me.

  • I had my 3.6 Mezger in the 997.1TT overhauled by a renowned workshop for almost €28,000.

    I would never get that back from the purchase price.

    Most of the time you do it for yourself as reassurance to prevent major engine damage or because noises can already be heard or something has been found using an endoscope.

  • And I'm not giving the car away anyway. It's going into the estate :old:...

    In a GT model or was that a boosted Carrera engine?

  • It was a normal 325 hp engine, which then supposedly had 370 hp.

  • It was a normal 325PS engine, which then supposedly had 370PS.

    OT: So you basically turned the 3.4 into a 4.0?


    Can you tell us about your experiences? Character of the engine? Was it worth it?

    TT engines always cost more, of course - can you tell us where you had it done and how satisfied you are; how many kilometers have you driven so far?
