How long do ads run for?
Ads run for 90 days. You are provided with a special delete link you can use to remove your ad at any time, should your Porsche sell before the 90 days has expired, or you decide to take the car off the market.
Do you accept ads for parts, wheels, tires, accessories, etc?
No, we no longer provide space for parts and accessory ads, only vehicles for sale.
Do you accept “wanted” ads?
No, we do not provide space for “wanted” ads.
Do you accept ads for auctions?
No, we do not accept ads for autions. Ads should be for a car for sale with a reasonable asking price that would be accepted today, if offered in the absense of better offers.
Can I edit my ad?
You can only edit your ad prior to submitting it for approval. After that, you are only able to delete and resubmit the ad. However, we can make changes for you – reply to your approval email and describe the changes you would like made and we will update your ad.
We can also reset your ad to the pre-submitted state so you can edit it again. This will take your ad off the site until it is approved again, but once it is re-approved, it will be a new ad, starting a new 90 day run on the site. If you’d like to do this, just reply to your approval email and ask for your ad to be reset for editing.
How do I remove my ad?
In your approval email there is a special delete link you can use to remove your ad at any time. If you have lost your approval email, send an email or contact us requesting your delete link and we will resend it.
Why are you requiring me to list my Porsches for sale as a “dealer?”
By our definition, anyone listing more than 2 cars for sale a year, or more than 1 car at a time, is a dealer and must identify as such for your ads to be approved.
Why do you have your own definition of a “dealer?”
We’re not so concerned about what a dealer is as we are about who is a private seller. Our definition of a dealer is broad so as to include brokers, agents, restorers and modifiers. Any time a buyer is dealing with a business we consider the seller not to be a “private seller.”
But I’m not a business, just a collector, why do I have to list as a “dealer?”
Occasionally, enthusiast collectors want to sell multiple cars at a time, or more during a year. When this happens, they meet our definition of a dealer, despite not being a business. They are also required to list as a dealer, but we allow a clarifying statement in the ad’s description.
Can I place an ad for my Porsche for sale in the Excellence print magazine?
We moved the Porsches for sale classifieds from the print magazine to the web some time ago, but you are still welcome to place an ad in the print magazine. For info on placing an ad, contact the Excellence Advertising Director.
