Who We Are

Marqued, a venture of Porsche Digital, Inc., focuses on classic and modern-classic vehicles. We provide an exciting and transparent auction platform, plus unique content from owners and experts. This is a community for enthusiasts of all types to buy and sell, gain knowledge, and share their passion.

Curated Auction Inventory

We vet every vehicle submission. Each approved listing includes extensive photos, detailed descriptions, and a vehicle history report (for 1981+ vehicles). Our Market Insider newsletter provides the latest marketplace updates--to subscribe, click here!

Two-Week Auctions

No more rushing to complete everything in just a week. Our auctions run in 14-day lots, with a new collection of vehicles launching every Tuesday. Bidders have ample time to arrange inspections and ask questions, and sellers have more flexibility to show the vehicle.

Fast Turnaround

We'll get to work as soon as you submit your vehicle. Your auction will be built quickly and go live during a time that's convenient for you.

Fair Reserves

We track the market to ensure that our reserves are accurate. Our team believes in offering reasonable reserves based on data, not opinions or haggling.

Low Fees

Our Seller's Fee is just $99 for reserve auctions and $49 for no-reserve auctions or repeat sellers.
For a limited time only, our Seller's Fee is $0 - list your vehicle for free!
Also, a low 5% Buyer's Fee capped at $5,000 means you'll receive more interest and higher bids.

Premier Content

Stories, market updates, guides, and more keep you up-to-date on the classic and modern-classic world. The Marqued Weekly newsletter keeps you up-to-date on the latest stories--to subscribe, click here!

Bidding

Ready to bid on a vehicle? We've made the process easy and secure. Here's how it works:

1. Register to Bid

  • Get familiar with our Terms of Use and see our FAQ below - this is important!

  • Register to bid. All bidders on Marqued register a credit card to cover the Buyer's Fee (5% of the winning bid - min $250, max $5,000).

2. Review the Listing

  • Review the auction page to get familiar with the vehicle being offered.

  • Ask the seller questions via the comments section or by using the Contact Seller button.

3. Place Your Bid

  • Place your bid, and we'll put a temporary hold on your credit card for the Buyer's Fee.

  • If you're outbid, return to the auction page to place another bid.

  • To keep things fair, bids placed within the auction's final 90 seconds reset the timer to 90 seconds.

4. After the Auction

  • If you're the winning bidder, we'll charge the Buyer's Fee to your credit card and connect you directly with the seller to complete the deal!

  • If you aren't the winner, we release all credit card holds as soon as the auction ends.

  • If a vehicle doesn't meet its reserve, we'll work with the highest bidder and the seller to make a deal.


Selling

Selling your vehicle on Marqued is simple and straightforward. Our dedicated team will work with you from start to finish. Here's how it works:

1. Submit Your Vehicle

  • Please submit initial information about your vehicle via our free and easy auction submission form!

  • We'll review your form to see if the vehicle is a good fit, ask any questions, and agree on reserve pricing.

  • Once approved, we'll collect more information about your vehicle, including ownership and service history and photos, and you'll pay the Seller's Fee.

2. We Build the Auction

  • We'll assign your vehicle to one of our Specialists, who builds the custom auction presentation for you.

  • Your Specialist sends their completed auction draft to an Editor, who ensures quality and accuracy.

  • We'll send you the final auction draft, which you can approve or request edits to.

3. Your Auction Goes Live

  • Once you approve the final draft, we'll schedule the auction based on your preferences and availability.

  • Your auction is live for 14 days! Users can bid, comment, and ask you questions in real-time.

4. After the Auction

  • If your vehicle sells, we'll connect you directly with the winner to complete the deal!

  • If your vehicle doesn't meet its reserve, we'll work with you and the highest bidder to make a deal.
