You can use our online value your trade tool to get a fast and accurate estimate for your car. Just fill out required information like your car year, make, and model.

You can also cross-reference your estimate against other services like Edmunds True Market Value® and Kelley Blue Book® Value

While you can just use the online tools, you may want to have your vehicle looked over if you’re not happy with your estimate. You can bring your vehicle into Porsche Fremont, and we’ll have a Porsche expert review your vehicle. Combining an up-close inspection with their experience with the local market demands and the knowledge of what’s already on our lot, they’ll be able to determine the value of your vehicle.

After the estimate and/or appraisal process is complete, you’ll need to decide if you’re ready to commit to the next step. If you’re not sure if you want to trade-in your vehicle for the price offered, you have the option to negotiate or walk away. If you need some time to think things over, our trade-in offer is good for up to 150 miles or 7 days, whichever comes first. 

To finalize your trade-in in the Bay Area, you’ll need to bring a few things with you to the dealership, such as the vehicle’s title and registration, all keys/keyfobs, a copy of your offer, and some personal identification. Using these, we’ll be able to quickly finalize your trade-in, leaving you with more in your bank account or to use for a new vehicle.
