    Since it's sold now, originality of paint doubtful. And price reflected that.

    You are absolutely right. Fact is, the old 911 hobby will mostly go away once the baby boomers age out. Not enough people in my generation (40s) and younger who care. ESPECIALLY when the prices are comparable to to many other incredibly interesting cars.

    I disagree. Once people get more educated they gravitate to the best and most interesting.
    For example 1920's WO Bentleys. Who can relate to those in period?

    A few years ago, I asked a car guy why he was selling his 1960 MB 300SL Roadster. His answer was that he could have just as much fun for 1/10th the price with his Porsches. I agree with him 100% except for one area; you can actually have MORE fun with Porsches!

    The 356 owners have pre-dated the baby boomer 911 owners, and it seems 356 prices are just getting stronger. Shows like Luft seem to be pulling in a newer younger audience. At least that’s how I feel but curious as to what others think.

    +1.
    The current Porsche Brand worldwide is strong and that will generate a subset of younger generation of consumers that will be interested in older models (356, air-cooled 911, etc.).
    A significant part of Porsche's brand image is based on its heritage and early racing history. This will peak interest in younger Porsche-files for the older stuff.
