    Yes but once you got one the value drops faster than a apple from a tree. As from 6 years old the car basically becomes your furniture as you will not get it traded in on something else. I have this experience and is very disappointed. Will not recommend buying Porsche brand.

    Had the same experience as above blogger with 4 Porsches.
    Is it true that now when sold the guarantee of a Porsche must be bought by the new owner?

    • There are certain requirements for the maintenance plan or warranty to be transferred to a new owner when not sold through a dealership. It seems to basically comes down to a dealer having to sign that all is well with the car, which would also help the buyer regarding the CPA and voetstoots clause.

      • Johan S says:

        Are there any costs involved with this “signing” if so it looks like forcing a seller to sell through the dealer and as such paying a hefty commission.

        • That’s a good question Johan. The car would probably have to be booked for a service, in which they will hand over the signed document. So, if the car is still under motor plan, it wouldn’t cost anything I assume…
