My Ride: Porsche 997 S
I took in a C5 automatic coupe on trade once for 7,500 with 99k miles from a guy who daily drove it since he had bought it from the PO with low miles.

I contemplated buying it and driving it daily because at the time I had a long commute. I ended up not doing it because I really didn't like the auto tranny it had. Or that it was black/black in south florida.

That being said, NO. 14k is a mother f'in RIP off! He traded it in for a low mile C6 coupe with intentions of driving it up to 100k, too fwiw.

we had one on our lot for $19,900 with similar miles 2002, pretty clean. Guy came in and tried to get $600 off the price of the car and management said no. I'd say 14 is a decent price for a clean c5, I'd still haggle with him.
I wouldn't be ****ing with anything less than an LS3 C6 though.
