FAQ’s P9 Registry
What is P9 Registry?
Originally created as ‘PORS’, a common short hand for Porsche® throughout the world and an acronym for Porsche® Owner’s Registry Site, it is the world’s largest vehicle database and registry for Porsche® GT, Turbo and Limited Series 9** models originally sold in North America. Our applications provide unparalled access to market data associated with the VINs in the database.
The P9 Registry is operated by Concours By Appointment.

Are there comparable services to P9 Registry?
No. There are no comps for P9 Registry – bulk valuation sources are too high level, non-current and non-specific to accurately reflect values of high end marques. As disclosed in the NADA guide as regards high end vehicles … ‘The NADA guide’s value is an attempt to value the daily-driven vehicle, not the quasi-collectible you possess.’
KBB, Edmunds, Hagerty and other non marque specialists employ teams of statisticians to analyze data purchased in bulk and cannot drill down as required to value low production specialized vehicles. We do not buy data, all of our data is self-harvested by our proprietary P9 Spider software application.
