My Two Cents on Porsche Values

I was reading an issue of GT Purely Porsche Magazine on a flight recently and came across a letter written by a reader titled “Cost of Everything, Value of Nothing”. He talks about the downward spiral of car values and specifically Porsches latest involvement in that trend. Evidently there are people who actually believe (or […]

Dealership of the Century: Gran Prix Imports

This is a bit off the usual topic, but I have to jump on the Compliment Soapbox for a minute and talk about Gran Prix Imports in Wilsonville, Oregon. I just swung by there to ask Jay Bernard, their Service Manager, a couple of Ferrari questions. I took my daughter with me who is absolutely […]

Tempting Porsches #9

I have two for this round. Both are pretty amazing cars, but a bit on the higher end. Thanks to Joe for getting the first one below on the radar. Tempting Porsche #1 The first is a 2006 911 Carrera 4S that Joe, one of our fine readers, sent our way. The car looks […]

Tempting Porsches #7

Here’s the latest findings that tempt me to go out and find some cash to buy. Tempting Porsche #1 “Get Your Sweetheart a Porsche This Year!” At least the ad title was catchy. I’d love to find a 928S or 928S4 to buy some day. This one is tempting because even with the crapola pictures, […]

Drive a Porsche for Free

I have a buddy that used to buy and sell used cars. He would always find a great deal on all kinds of cars. Some of my favorites were several Porsches (a 944, a slant nose 911 Turbo look, and a 911SC), a Corvette, and a Mercedes 450SL. The amazing thing was his ability to […]

Another Porsche Trade

I’m always amazed at what people want to trade for a Porsche or for their Porsche. Today the stakes are a bit higher. Looking to get rid of your newer Porsche? If so, you’re in for a treat. You could be the proud owner of a 2007 Bobcat. Here are the details: perfect condition, just […]

New Member of the Family Has Arrived!

A pretty exciting day has arrived for me. The love affair with Porsche that started with a test drive in a white 944 when I was 15 resulting in a nearly 24 year pursuit of Porsche ownership, has finally culminated in a monumentous event: The purchase of a Porsche! After months of looking, numerous test […]

Used Porsche Prices Round 2

I’m still a little baffled at some of the prices I’m seeing for used Porsches. Especially older ones. Here’s a couple of examples: This is a 1982 911 with this as the ad: A very nice car. All has been rebuilt and upgraded. I would prefer to trade for property or Porsche 993. He’s asking […]

Tempting Porsches #6

I’m sure I’m a glutton for punishment, but I keep seeing these old 911s and 912s that are straight and relatively complete, and think “Wouldn’t it be great to buy one of those and fix it up.” I’m not necessarily looking for a car to restore, that’d require way more ambition than I have. But […]

Buying A Used Porsche – Books To Check Out

I picked up a couple of Porsche books as a refresher on buying a used Porsche. Both are longtime staples in the book world on the topic of Porsche and worth reading. Even if you’ve purchased a used Porsche in the past, consider grabbing one or both of these to remind you of things you […]
