  1. I also have a 2012 S. I purchased used with 64k Miles in sept 2016. I made sure before purchasing that the transfer case had been replaced under warranty with the original owner. Turns out it was replaced in April 2016 with appro 62k miles. So I assumed I was in the clear right? WRONG! Now at 84k miles and less than 2 years the transfer case has gone out again. My dealer was able to get Porsche to “goodwill” the part but I still need to pay $900 labor. They said this fix will include a new vent for moisture that they believe could be contributing to the problem. Can’t say that I have a warm fuzzy that it won’t fail again. As much as I like this SUV I’m not sure I can afford to take the chance again. With so many failures you would think there would be a better solution. Oh, by the way my symptom happens when shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear. There is a shudder about 4-5 times until it finally shifts into 4th. Doesn’t happen when it’s cold though. Porsche did say that the new TC will have a 2 year parts and labor warranty. As someone else mentioned since the car was under a CPO warranty when the first Tc went out, it wasn’t under the 2 year parts and labor. Anyway just wanted to provide my info in hopes it may help others.
