Thank you guys!
Hi Rob,

I see your question is also about “longevity”, not just pricing and market. Given the mileage some are getting out of their Carreras, there will be no discernible difference in longevity. You may even get more trouble free miles out of the higher mileage car assuming decent service and clean PPI. Sitting is hard on cars and the red one has barely done 1000 miles a year.

Resale value on the other hand will be a good bit different. Assuming excellent care while in your ownership, the red car will certainly get the extra you paid back, and more I would dare to say. The red car will still be a fairly low mileage car even if you put 25000 miles on it. That would take years and years if you are like most of us.

Bottom line, you probably can’t go wrong with either one. If you like the gray one better and it is comparable in all but mileage, go for it.
