California coupe in a nice color having been lovingly cared for by a member of this community, not to many miles, hitting the right buttons, with records of service to round it out.
As of now 35K if not more is my guess.
Sell it on BAT.

Ya know, some of you local Pelicans out there should reach out and ensure she gets all money out of that car. Rare color, original paint, unmolested - all if's... the car is worth a small fortune.

At least that's what I would do if she was on the other coast,,,, just sayin.

Gina if you'd like to discuss the sale of the car to a good home please let me know I would be interested. I've owned Porsche cars for a while and not a flipper nor a dealer. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to discuss. I'll send you a PM

Sell it on BAT.
140K is what you consider "not too many miles"?

Love the color though and looking forward to seeing more detailed pics or interior, motor, underbody, etc.

911's with the nickel seal cylinders will easily go over 250,000 miles and I have pulled apart many sc/Carreras with well over 300,000 and the lower ends needed nothing and the cylinders still had the cross hatch on them.
But market wise sub 100,000 is considered low miles
100 to 200K I would think is normal for this age car, and not a problem as long as head work/studs were addressed.
Over 200k I would consider high miles but does not scare me on coupes with good service.
So, yes, not to many miles on this car.

Methinks the sharks are smelling blood.

OP in SoCal? Consider a consignment or brokered sale to avoid the bum rush.

South Bay Area, near Scotts Valley. Would Canepa take a car like this?

I wouldn't take less than $30k for that car unless there are some engine, hidden accidents or other problems that pop up in a Pre Purchase Inspection (PPI). I would also consider listing it on Bring A Trailer (bringatrailer.com). Check out their site. I would recommend having someone help you list it and deal with the auction. It's worth the commission IMO and you'll get top $$$. Best of luck with the sale and take your time.

Even with the 140k miles, assuming maintenance is as thorough as it seems to be, a California coupe in a rare colour would likely fetch $40k at the right venue.

It's a perfect Bring A Trailer car if some local folks here can help Gina sort out all the details and pore through the receipts.

I agree. Gina needs a local boy scout. Anybody?

Don't forget that Gina has a life. Maybe she just wants to put it up for sale here for a fair price and be done with it. Putting it on BAT becomes a part time job for a week. Then all the questions, photo requests etc... by people who won't even place a bid. Selling here might be a better idea for her.

Interesting sentiment I have heard quite a bit before.
I always ask these people who express this belief what the actual numbers are for their time? What would you do for let's say $5,000.00? would you be willing to do a part time job for a week answering questions about your car?
Some times if you put real numbers on the conveyance of a broker are quick sale people change their view.

Gina that is a beautiful example, if your husband went to a mechanic that you TRUST you may want them to help you sell the car if you aren't familiar with selling- This car could fetch anywhere from 25-35 all depending on a few factors. My advice as someone in the business is

1-If you have a family member familiar with cars have them help you & goto a TRUSTED mechanic if you have one, have them give you a pre purchase inspection report. Also Find as many records as you can, i'm sure your husband had maintenance records- organize them in a file.

2-Have someone familiar with these cars take many pics interior / exterior and while its at the mechanic pics of the undercarriage. The more transparent you are even with problems the car has the better, and it will sell quicker- remember MANY DETAILED PICS!

3-Think of a number you feel comfortable with and take into account how much time/work you want to put into making the deal, the more time & effort you put the more $$ you will get. This color should fetch a little extra $ as its a special color.

4-Screen buyers, if anyone sound like a low baller or shady do not deal with them, you may get some overseas inquiries, don't shy away, but be very careful, do NOT release car or title until you have money in your bank account CLEARED (you could make a new bank account just for this transaction)

5- some People on this forum especially hate dealers & will tell you your car is worth a million dollars but they aren't ready to put their money where their mouth is, so if you get a dealer offering you a quick fair deal and you want to be done with the car, then go for it after being sure you are getting a good value for your car. Some of the big dealers (not small niche operation like mine) do pay big money for these cars as they don't mind them sitting on their lots for a while to sell.

Good luck & if you have any questions ask us here!

That’s a $35-40k car. Who serviced it when your husband didn’t do it himself?

That's a beautiful car there Gina. Your husband really took excellent care of it and it shows. Thank you for sharing the additional photos.

Was this owned by your husband from new? If not, how many years has it been in the family?

What are the service records like? Have the head studs been taken care of?

Despite the decent mileage I think your bottom is no lower than the $35-40k range. I concur with others that listing this on BAT (bringatrailer.com) will help it be seen by a majority of Porsche enthusiasts and help bring out all of the money the community has to offer.
