Hi, would appreciate any input on others who have done this.

997.1 Turbo - Typically whats the ballpark % you might expect a dealer to offer compared to equivalent cars they might be stocking currently. Im not interested in part-ex as I looking to cash in if it goes at all.

Lets say equivalent cars are in the £45-50k range for color, mileage, spec etc.
What does a dealer usually look to make on such a car, £5K , or more than 10%? Or am I way out?
Negotiating Wheel Refurb, serviceable items and bumper re-spray etc I can understand would likely be factored in.

I know the best thing to do is call them but I thought id check here first.
Thanks!

Depends on the car and how much 'prep' it may need before they can move it on. My experience is about 5 - 6k on the value you are looking at below. so you are about right in the 10% mark.... Also be warned you need to have all your paperwork in order for dealers to go anywhere near it - not just V5 but service stamps, books, second key, receipts etc all helps.

Finally the market is seemingly dead at the moment - I only know as i am in the market for a 997.2 and there seem to be a lot of cars hanging around in the 50 - 70k bracket! That said you have a turbo which are always popular - try giving Joel & Darren a call at RSJ, easy guys to deal with!

The only way you will find out is to actually ask dealers are there are so many factors to consider.. your actual car will be some of those but others will not be down to you so you can't factor those in

I recently sold a 981 BGTS back to Porsche and the offers varied by £7k across just 3 opcs is more than 10% in variance alone but in the end I got very close to private sale money as one opc just wanted it for stock as there was only one other in the OPC network which was out of my control so I snapped there hand off.

In the current market for a straight purchase I'd expect a trade offer to be about 20% less than any advertised retail price.

Dealers will expect a buyer to negotiate money off and they still have to present the car, advertise it and provide a warranty before making any profit.

They may offer more for a part-exchange as there may be some margin in the car they are selling and even more for a 'Commission Sale' as they aren't having to lay out any cash up front.

I was in a similar position 6 months ago, the only people who offered to by the car ( 997 Turbo S) outright were OPC's. They were quite open in saying they wanted a mark up of 10-12%.

Not one of the usual well regarded independents wanted to purchase outright, they all wanted to SOR.

Hi

In that price range they would be paying £7500 less than the selling / market price.

Try low balling your price on autotrader if you are willing to go that low to a dealer and I’m sure you’ll get traders calling you to buy it at the lower price. And maybe make a bit more for yourself at the same time, say list it at 8% lower than market value and see if you get any bites.

Might be worth putting an advert on Tootle where Dealers will see your car for sale & bid if interested.

Another option might be worth looking at a SOR arrangement with a reputable Porsche specialist such as 911Virgin etc.

Good luck.

I would try 2 people:

Stirling cars (Mark Pearce) he offered me just a short amount of my PX value, I would have taken it but the seller of my new car wanted mine as part of the deal for stock.

Revilo, they offered me 2.5 k less than i traded but still pretty good.

Both people offered next day collect and bank transfer subject to my car being what i said it was.

I have used Revilo and Redline Specialist cars. Both were very good. Money was transferred over straight after inspection.
