I have usually kept my autos for upwards of 120-150k miles. In buying my 2003 C2, i did not see many cars from 2000-on that had more than 50k miles. Does anyone have experience with keeping these cars long term?

No exact experience. I put a 100k miles on a 911 over nine years and felt I got my money out of it when my ex totaled it. I've had my Six for over 30 years. And plan to keep my 986 forever.

2000 and on is only six years and that 50k mileage sounds reasonable.

You can get an idea about value by tracking the work of Keith Martin in his market letter or Bruce Anderson in Excellence magazine. I'm betting your car will slowly decline for 20-25 years and then start to appreciate if in good condition.

120-150k miles over 10 years is value IMO. Over 3 years followed by trade-in or sale, probly not. Can you have :censored: out-of-warranty disasters? Sure.
