Would you buy a leased Porsche?


Recommended Posts

I saw and sat in a used 2006 Cayman S at a local Nissan dealer. The carfax shows it spent its first two years leased. The dealer was elusive about whether it was traded on a new Nissan; I get the impression they bought the car just to draw visitors. I've told myself I would never by a prior leased vehicle - especially a Porsche - because I don't trust a short-term user to take care of the car like it's their own.

Are there any horror stories from buyers of leased Porsches? Do dealers regularly stock "foreign" (to them) performance cars on their used lot to attract visitors?

They wouldn't allow a test drive or agree to an independent mechanical evaluation unless we could agree on a price - ostensibly because doing either would add a few precious miles to the 6600 mile odometer reading. For now I've agreed to nothing and walked away only with the salesman's business card. Auto dealers: <_<

I bought a Boxster S one year and 7000 happy miles ago, from an Infiniti dealer. Yes, they do buy cars at auction to sell and to create interest in their dealership, and this dealer did admit to this type of marketing . I have had no problems. In fact, I think it was to my advantage - they were selling this Boxster S at a base Boxster price.

However, any dealer, Porsche or otherwise, should easily agree to a pre purchase inspection, otherwise, I think they are hiding something. Adding a couple of miles test driving is negligible!
