I'm looking at an '09 C2S, PDK, 15K miles/in-service date 9/08 being sold by an independent dealer. If I purchase it can I request my Porsche dealer to consider the car for CPO?

I've read discrepant info with a couple of folks saying that they HAVE had it done and others saying - no - you can't.

A dealer might consider CPO'ing a car such as yours. However, the car cannot be CPO'ed unless the dealer has title (legally owns) the car. Thus, you would have to sell the car to the dealer, pay for the CPO inspection, pay to have any defects repaired (either directly or in the re-purchase price), pay for the CPO policy (~$2,000) and repurchase the car....paying sales tax, registration, etc., etc. And, that is if you can find a dealer willing to do it. A dealership that had originally sold the car, and maintained it, would be the best prospect, if it exists.

Further, when purchasing an already CPO'ed car, if the seller isn't a Porsche dealer or the private party owner of the car, the CPO warrenty becomes void. Thus, a third party dealer can't make a claim that a Porsche it may have for sale comes with a CPO warranty. A CPO warranty can be transferred from private party seller to private party buyer for a ~$50 fee.

I think it depends on the dealer.. I bought my Turbo from an independent dealer but this dealer has a very good relationship with my official Porsche dealer. I got an additional 2 year / 100k CPO and the dealer waived the inspection charge. The warranty cost me $3,400.. It covers everything except wear items (brakes, clutch etc.) and fluids.

I'm not so worried about engine failure but I have already had a work on the PCM and replaced the clutch accumulator.. Just the PCM probably was as much as the warranty..:rolleyes:

It is true they do have to take title of the car but only on their books.. They have to add your car to their inventory so when Porsche approves the warranty they see it in the dealers stock.. They don't take title in reality.....

It really depends on your releationship with your dealer...

Good luck..
