As the lock down drags on and we find ourselves with extra time on our hands, many of us are on the hunt for the Porsche we’ve always wanted.
If you’ve identified a Porsche that you ticks all your boxes, getting a vehicle Pre Purchase Inspection (PPI) can give you both peace of mind, and added confidence when negotiating the purchase price. A Pre Purchase Inspection will provide a detailed report identifying any small or large issues, and gives you reassurance that you really understand the condition of the vehicle.
For the best outcome, it’s important to get the Pre Purchase Inspection undertaken by a mechanic with a detailed knowledge of the car make and model you are considering purchasing. This also gives you the added benefit of being able to tap into their expertise so you’re better equipped to understand the likely outlays associated to fix any identified issues, and build this knowledge into price negotiations.
At NINEAUTO we offer a Pre Purchase Inspections Service for all Porsche models, where we thoroughly inspect the vehicle’s exterior, interior, mechanical workings, perform a diagnostic scan if applicable and also perform a road test. The inspection takes around 4 hour and costs $550 including GST. For modern Porsche models after 1997 (996 and Boxster 986 onwards), we always begin the PPI with a Rev Range Check to understand if the engine has recorded any over revs. (See previous NINEAUTO post on Rev Range Check Prior to Purchase for more information.)
Once the PPI is complete we’ll provide you with a detailed report, and guide you through the inspection results so you can make your vehicle purchase with confidence. Being well informed of the overall condition of the vehicle, and the likely pitfalls on a particular model is likely to save you money in the long run, and enable you to make a more informed decision.
