Since I reside in California I will have to say they are the best cars and worth double the price, haha. From my experience we have little rust, nice weather most of the year and a huge car culture so I think people take better care of their cars. Just my 2 cents.

Like I said, people in California think they are Mary Poppins 'practically perfect in every way'

Thanks all for giving up the unrusted & well serviced Porsches ( many from CA, Texas, Arizona) I got over the decades that I have delivered to the under serviced and neglected sport car affectionados of Wisconsin and surrounding areas. . I still have many favorites I've kept now I have retired but as you know ( can't take them with you ) so maybe some will be going back. ( shameless plug for website VoitureLTD.com ) for your ( hopefully far into future ) reference. Stay tuned. Thanks, Tony @ VoitureLTD

Here is another Example of a car advertised as a "California car" , and of course it is rusty.
It is California rust. and of course that must be a better rust. maybe it is easier to weld than other rust?

The car in another state would look like this over the same amount of time. Your choice.




$53k body work or $73k body work? You decide

My choice is to not buy rusty cars from any state even, California.

How do you choose when rust is not visible on the surface ?

Do you really want to learn something or are you just being your usual combative self?

I'm just a hobbyist, not a pro or business !

How do you avoid a rusty p-car when the rust is not obvious ?

Then you are a hobbyist who does not want to learn anything and argues with anybody even pro's or people in the business about Porsches which they know much more than you do, as a hobbyist, as you admit.
You have no real desire to know anything you do not already believe.
So it would pointless for me to share my experience. I already of have in this thread, but you have dismissed it. That's your prerogative. So you have made you decision and I do not feel like getting in a pointless argument with you just for arguments sake.
Because that is what it would be.

I know nothing. I can't see rust when it isn't obvious unlike the two shining examples you have put forth.

CA car is a benefit from the corrosion standpoint as already extensively discussed. Also good for keeping engines closer to stock if its newer than '75.

I'm also curious why sellers feel the need to point out the prior owner was a physician/pilot/engineer.

Because everyone wants to believe that their car was owned by a flat top fighter pilot or a College Professor with a tweed coat and leather elbows. I have a friend who is trying to sell a Speedster and guy's keep calling him asking about the "story" of the car. There is no story, at least not one that he knows, it changed hands five times and ended up at his shop, where he restored it. But if it was owned by a physician/pilot/engineer well then it would be sooooo much more interesting. People who put that stuff in the ad are only giving the buyer's what they crave, it's just good marketing. A story/provenance goes a long way to selling a car. I just sold a 73S project for over $70,000, I can guarantee you the provenance of that car helped with the sale.
