Hi Folks,

Quick question to the Porsche driving and buying community. I'm thinking of getting myself into a Carrera GTS and therefore would like to sell my trusty Carrera S. Sad but true because I'm not made of money :-). The thing is that speaking for myself I would be loathe to buy a car like that from a private seller - I'd want the reassurance of gettingit from a dealer. Also I'm not too sure whether I'd want people turning up at my place to scope out an expensive car - you never know how might turn up! Sowhat I'm getting round to is can you guys think of any other options apart from selling it to or through the dealer on consignment or chopping it in against a new one? It such a shame to have it devalued by such a huge amount when sellingto a dealer. If I did decide to go down the private sale route can you guys suggest any good mediums? I will look into the New Jersey owner's club mag Ithink as a way just to reach out to genuinely interested enthusiasts - anyone got any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Hold on to it until the market improves.

Sell your car to a consignment dealer.

Nice thing about going through a dealer would be funds will clear. No worries about bad checks. Also, most states you save on sales tax. You only pay sales tax on the diiference in price of the cars and not the total on the new car. This can be a few thousand dollar in some states.

Not in California!!!

I sold a Honda (not a Porsche) via Craig's List with very good experience. I talked with the buyer over the phone for long enough to see what kind of person he was. We went down to a branch of his bank and got a certified check. Everyone was happy (and the cash helped out on a new Cayenne S).
