Classic Porsche Seller’s Tips
- Prepare your classic Porsche for sale
Properly preparing your car for sale will help you sell it faster and for a higher value. If your classic Porsche is an unfinished restoration project, for example, be sure to have all the spare parts, components and documentation available for potential buyers. On the other hand, this may mean washing and detailing the car, taking pictures, or gathering ownership and restoration records.
- Understand the current market
Understand the current market by doing research on other classic Porsche models that are similar to yours, paying close attention to sales prices and those that have been sitting on the market for a long time. You can always contact the Alex Manos team to learn more about the value of your classic Porsche in today’s market.
- Define Authenticity
Obtain a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche, which includes your vehicle’s original factory specifications, birth date and MSRP. This can prove invaluable for restoration, resale and for displaying your Porsche at concours events, and can give potential buyers confidence in your particular model. This is exceptionally valuable for early model classic Porsches like the 356.
- Decide to sell
Take the emotion out of the sale. While selling a classic car can be an emotional time, it is important to look at the sale as objectively as possible. This will help ensure that you do not pass up an opportunity to accept a great value on your car.
- Be accurate with your description and representation of quality
Be sure to list and explain any additional options that may increase the value of your classic. Porsche offered a diverse selection of options throughout the early years. From Fuchs wheels on the 911 to rear luggage racks, electric clocks, and sunroofs on the 356, additional factory options such as these can help set your Porsche apart from others being offered for sale.
