What is a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and Why is it Important to Have?
WHAT IS A PORSCHE CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY? -
A Porsche Certificate of Authenticity is a valuable document that comes directly from the Porsche factory. Included on the document is the original build information specific to your Porsche. It includes your Porsche's original factory specs (options you ordered with your car), your Porsche's Birth Date or production completion date and the MSRP or manufacturers suggested retail price.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE? -
It doesn't matter if you have an older (antique) Porsche or a newer model, all Porsche cars are collectible (as far as I'm concerned). A Certificate of Authenticity can be valuable for resale, restoration and on the concourse. As certain model Porsches become more and more collectible, a Certificate of Authenticity is a must.
I have ordered one for each of my P-cars and I've always been glad to have them.
HOW MUCH DO THEY COST? -
For model year 1948 to 1979 they are $110.00
For model year 1980 to present they are $95.00
You can get a $10.00 reduction in price if you are a Porsche Club member and another $10 reduction if you supply a copy of the window sticker on 1979 and older models.
