Like you, we are appalled at the pricing and negotiating practices of typical car dealers. As a result, we don’t pad our prices to experience the “thrill” of negotiating. We price our cars at what we believe to be their “market value.” We will openly share our research with you, and provide you with the documentation that supports the value of the car.
Our Rating System
A very well-presented Porsche, driven lightly and not fully detailed, that will bring home trophies in local or regional/zone concours.
Show and Display
A well-presented Porsche, driven frequently but constantly maintained, that anyone would be proud to own and display either in low-key shows, people’s choice shows, and display paddocks.
A Porsche that is driven a lot, looks good from 10 or 20 feet, has paint chips or flaws, decent chrome, clean interior, not prepared or detailed.
A Porsche that is exceptionally well preserved from new, all numbers matching, with original paint (touch ups okay), interior with original patina, engine, well maintained (with records). It is important to have the factory Kardex or a PCNA Certificate of Authenticity and fulsome maintenence records to prove mileage and originality.
A special (perhaps only to its owner) Porsche that needs a little of everything — paint, interior, engine and suspension, i.e. time and money — but that is a good base car on which major expenditures make sense.
A Porsche that has major or structural rust, missing parts, where the cost of restoratiuon exceeds any prospective upside in value, aka “the dream is over.”
