Want to sell your Porsche?
Autohaus Lancaster will buy it.

Are you starting to get the itch to sell your current Porsche? Maybe trade a coupe for a convertible, or vice versa? Why not? The time has never been better. Porsche values are at all-time highs, and yours is probably worth more than you think. Owners of classic 911 s, for instance, may be able to trade for a new 718 Boxster or Cayman, with all the amenities, comforts, reliability and technological upgrades that entails, and walk away with extra cash in pocket.

Private-party sales mean inviting strangers to your home, or going to theirs with your Porsche, letting drivers of unknown skill take your Porsche for a test spin, and then wasting time with bargain-hunters seeking to take advantage of you. If you would like to sell your Porsche, simply and quickly, and get proper value for it, our dedicated customer service team will do the work for you.


What is the Trade-In Value of My Porsche?
If you’re wondering, “What is my used car worth,” the answer is just a few clicks away! Using our handy value your trade-in calculator, you can get an estimated car trade-in value from the comfort of your home or office. Simply input some information about your car into the trade-in value calculator, as well as your contact information, and you’ll have an estimate right away. Keep in mind, there are a few factors that affect trade-in value, including:

  • Mileage
  • Mechanical condition
  • Car features
  • Exterior/Interior condition
  • Market landscape


How Do You Trade in a Car?
After you’ve received your trade-in estimate, it’s time for an appraisal of your vehicle! Our Lancaster dealership can take care of this step for you. We’ll examine the condition of your car and make sure it’s a good fit for our used car inventory. When you visit for your car’s appraisal, be sure to bring your trade-in estimate!

Once we’ve examined your car, you can negotiate or accept our offer and finalize the sale. We pride ourselves on offering the fairest possible offer on trade-in vehicles, aiming to make the trade-in process transparent and simple. In fact, there are a couple of major advantages to selling your car to a dealership, including:

You can haggle at a dealership. We encourage our customers to always do their own research to make sure they’re getting the most reasonable trade-in offers.
Can you trade in a car you still owe on? You can with a dealership. If you’re upside down on your car loan, you can consolidate what’s owed on your current car with the price of your new ride.


Value Your Trade-In: FAQs
Q: Can you trade in a financed car?
A: Yes, you can. If you have positive equity on the car (as in it’s worth more than what you currently owe), you can trade it in easily. The dealer will purchase the car and pay off the loan, then they’ll put what’s left toward the new vehicle price, giving you a major advantage. If you have negative equity on the car (as in it’s worth less than what you currently owe), the dealer may still buy the car and pay off the loan, but the difference will be rolled into your new car loan — meaning you’ll still need to pay it off eventually.

Q: How soon can you trade in a financed car?
A: There’s no time limit that’s set in stone, but it’s a good idea to wait until you have positive equity.

Q: What does it mean to be “upside down” on a car loan?
A: Being “upside down” on a car loan is the same thing as having negative equity. If, for example, you owe $30,000 on a car that’s worth $25,000, you have negative equity.

Q: Can I trade in my car for a cheaper car?
A: If you still owe money on the car, you can trade it in for a cheaper one. If, for example, you owe $15,000 and the car is worth $20,000, the dealer can purchase the car as a trade-in, pay off the loan, and put the $5,000 toward your new auto loan as equity. If you don’t owe money on the car an
d own it outright, there’s nothing stopping you from trading it in for a cheaper car; you can do what you’d like with it.
