Another possible option is to PX with an independent then get an OPC to do the Porsche check to get a warranty on the 991.1.

I sold my 991.1 C4s to Dovehouse cars in Rushden last month as their price to buy was better than I was offered by my OPC against my GTS by a fair margin. The guy who bought it just got in touch with me and apparently took it to an OPC this week to be inspected for a warranty extension. Passed with flying colours. So buying from an OPC isn't the only way to get a 991.1 with a Porsche Warranty.

Dove were excellent. I got more on sale, the new owner paid less for the car and then sorted the warranty with Porsche and Dove made money on the deal. Everyone was happy and all done within the profit margin the OPC would have taken!

I dealt with Simon at Dove. He was spot on. Maybe they would take the 997?

A mates 991.1 C4s is up for sale there right now as they offered him a better deal than he was offered on his PX as well! No idea on your budget, but I can put you in touch with the previous owner (from new);

This is a good idea. I have emailed some of the top end independents to see what they might offer to buy my car. I'm happy to try to get the Porsche warranty from an indy sale, but my understanding is that the OPC warranty is 4 figures per year when brought privately (i'd love to be corrected here). So the price would need to be at least 5% under OPC to compensate for that and the check (considering 2 years is bundled on an OPC purchase). That's possibly realistic, given the usual OPC mark up.

I've also created an advert on here - so will see if there's much private buyer interest before making a decision on how to send the 997 on to a good home.

jfyi. If you buy a car from a dealer you will have to wait 90 days before you can apply a Porsche warranty and it will cost you £216 for a 111 point check first.

The cost will be £1100+ for a 12 month warranty or £1900+ for 2 years which is one of the reasons that OPC cars are always dearer to buy.

That's about where I expected it to be. I wasn't aware of the 90 day restriction however. Although I guess you'd hope for the standard dealer warranty to cover you in the meantime.

Thanks for the info.

I must admit I don't know how Porsche dealers check this but the 90 day thing is their policy as it should be the selling dealers responsibility to provide a warranty for at least that first 90 days.
