This might be a dumb question, but the only time I have crossed the threshold of an OPC in 15 years of ownership is a parts department visit. So, say my local is West London, and I see an approved used car I'm interested in at the Perth OPC. Do Porsche do an Evans Halshaw type operation whereby they bring the car to the nearest centre for a buyer to look at , or is a trip required to see the car wherever it is?

I have a feeling I know what the answer is going to be . . .

My understanding is that if it's within their network ( e.g. Dicklovett), they can source it from one to the other or if the particular OPC cannot sell it .
Have you checked with the sales guys to be absolutely sure?

Not yet. Just starting to have a nose round to see what is available via the OPC network, rather than the indies.

There is no OPC used car network, rather about half a dozen separate companies under the one flag.

Both Perth and Aberdeen are owner by Peter Vardy Group. They won’t move it so come on up.
Make sure that you ask them to prepare the car fully for you. When I was looking for my Cayman GTS I went to see one in Perth which is a 5 hr round trip. It wasn’t prepared and when I said to the sales guy I would not touch with a barge pole as loads of stone chips etc he said but they are drivers cars.

I stopped in past with the one I ended up buying from Leicester and the salesman saw how they should look.
They are a nice bunch of guys and I suspect it was just the car I looked at. I have seen many nice ones there too.👍
