The biggest fear when buying a used Porsche is that your purchase turns out to be faulty or has a chequered past. With this in mind we protect you in several ways.
We inspect all Porsche thoroughly prior to offering them for sale. This is the only way we can guarantee all Porsche sold by us are of the best quality for their age, fit for purpose and any defects, excessive wear or faults are addressed before the vehicle leaves us. During our purchase process more cars end up being rejected than purchased, We ensure all Porsche purchased by us pass our strict inspection criteria, created over 2 decades of purchasing Porsche. We purchase the majority of our stock directly from private owners, previous customers, collectors, enthusiasts or Porsche Club members which in most cases have been maintained to high standards. We also work with a handful of our own selected Porsche suppliers who are just as conscious as we are of which cars they take into stock and the high standards we expect.
We look at 5 distinct areas of a car when assessing it:
We interrogate the electronic control units of our cars. This allows us to verify mileage, identify any fault codes, and gain a limited idea as to the manner in which the vehicle has been driven by assessing any engine over rev activity.
- Bodywork and structural integrity
This includes accident damage, general condition of the panel work, originality and identity (vehicle identification numbers etc.).
- Mechanical condition
An overall assessment of mechanical condition and service state. Specialist knowledge over more than 2 decades means there is little we have not seen in the past. We can also call on an extensive support network should investigative work be required.
As well as physical checks we check service documents and verify mileage with old MOT’s. We are also members of HPI and use them to check for outstanding finance, insurance claims, vehicle theft, identity cloning, previous registration numbers and so on.
Is the car in a condition consistent with age, mileage and value. The interior is a good indication of how much work a car has done for instance.
