Well you own it now so it really doesnt matter. If you must know, if I think its a fair deal. Thats depending on service records, prevenative maintenace, overall condition, options, color combination and clean title. If your buying it to drive, then even after 2 or 3 years of average driving it should still be considered a low mileage car and you will probly do good when you sell it, if its properly maintained. If you purchased for a flip or investment then I dont think its a big money car. So drive and enjoy my friend.

Kelley Blue Book values it at $25,315. Without knowing the color I choose red and stuck with the standard equipment. So you're definitely in the ballpark. Did you get a good deal? I think so. Porsches are really cool cars. As Michael said, drive and enjoy it!! HTH. -Jim

You are now a owner. Drive and enjoy your Porsche. The population luv's low mile cars. You can enjoy for a couple of years and sell. Because of age, a low mile car may be due 25, 30, 40 K service all at once. So be it... Don't become discourage and sell the car after the above investment. If that happens, enjoy the car for a few more years to capture a ROI. Again, enjoy the car. Avoid owning a garage queen. Happy driving.

I personally prefer higher mileage cars with good maintenance records, I find they make better and more reliable drivers

You bring up a good point Andrew. With only 13,500 miles on the car and it being 15 years most of the parts are probably original. It would be a good idea to have things like the belts, hoses, tires, and brakes looked at. For safety's sake in addition to reliability. A tune up may be in order too. If the car was stored in a climate controlled garage these things will be in better condition. But should still be looked at. HTH. -Jim


All depends How about the IMS bearing Have that checked out . Could blow engine.


Given that mileage, I would certainly advise upgrading the IMS bearing, and installing the IMS guardian.
