What would be a fair price for one of these today, assuming excellent original condition and low miles? I've been out of the market for a while.

Thanks!

Oddly enough, Hagerty's has the 851 valued at over twice that of the 888 SPO. I know there was a strictly limited number of 888's imported to the US in '93 and '94, but is it not considered collectible?

Yep. About $12k for a very nice one.

Based on what I have seen an 851 in the same condition would be perhaps 2/3 the price of an 888.

Now all I need is the 888 to go to about $60k* and I can sell my 851 and replace it with a V4 Speciale :)

*(Based on current prices of early Porsche 911 models, anything is possible)

I have an SP5 and i can confirm that I have been offered substantial money for it.

Also, I didn’t have a ‘93 SPO but a ‘94 SPO LTD and it went for a fair amount over the $12k mentioned here - although had I not had that experience, I would also have thought $12k to $15k forms very nice one. I sold it after I got the SP5.

I got more than $12k for my Limited as well, but they bring more than the '93 SPO (even though the upgrades are small).

Right in my neighborhood. And a good price--significantly less than I sold mine for.

It's one of those love it or hate it kind of bikes, I am of the former and remember when this bike operated by Polen and Foggy was the top. I always wanted one from then on. I found one in my back yard and even though it didn't make sense, its now mine and I don't think I would sell it, after all whats another Ducati for the hangar.

Buy It.......They are not making any more of them.

I've never been a huge fan of rectangular design elements on sport bikes, e.g., the headlight on the 851/888 series. These bikes however are sofa king sexy in every other way that I really could care less. If I had the cash laying around at the moment I'd be on that like a pit bull on a poodle. ;)

Yes I was in line to buy it had some e-mails back and forth
with the owner even though they were closed He promised
a salesman would get back to me today never happened.
On the plus side I really didn't need it. Also missed out on
the 916SPS that was only 36 miles from me so I am saving
quite a bit of Money this week.
