Porsche Buyers Guides

Ferdinand Magazine’s detailed Porsche buyers guides are intended to bring more people into the Porsche hobby and are our most popular pages. They are written by Porsche enthusiast and long-time motor trade expert, John Glynn.

“I bought my first car in 1985 and have worked in the motor trade, buying and selling cars ever since,” says John. “I started trading cars for major fleet and retail channels, including the biggest car supermarkets before moving into lease cars as part of Barclays Bank and then onto a decade in consumer and trade valuations with Glass’s Guide/EurotaxGlass in the UK.

“My experience helps me to quickly decide what is worth buying and what should be ignored. Applying this expertise for enthusiasts and collectors led to a career in motor trade consulting and dealer marketing, including trade and consumer publishing and also to running my own Porsche blog.

“These pages share some of my Porsche buyers guide hints and tips. Some articles have been previously published elsewhere. Due to infrequent updates, please gloss over any price content. Some classic Porsche 911 values have risen by more than 60% in the last two years, so keeping Porsche guide prices up to date every minute of every day is not something I want to attempt! Each page has a date of last edit to put prices in context.
