Thinking of buying 2007 CPO C2S

Recommended Posts


I am thinking of buying a 2007 C2S Cab with 38,450 miles, I owner, from a Porsche Dealer. I was reviewing the carfax and noticed that at 12,558 miles, the "driveshaft seal was replaced" and "front crankshaft oil seal was replaced'? Excuse my ignorance, but are these things that I need to be concerned about given the fact that it is under CPO warrantly? We negoitated on $63K down from $64295.

Additional info from service records:

at 38,434 miles and part of the certification process, dealer replaced RMS and IMS flange due to leaks. I think I should be okay?

The rear main seal (RMS) is probably what the carfax refers to as the "driveshaft seal." The intermediate shaft flange is the piece that holds your intermediate shaft; the IMS bearing underneath (as I imagine you have read) is prone to fail on earlier models, but I've read a reinforced bearing was introduced in the 2006 MY that should lessen the risk.

The newer Porsche CPO is roughly equivalent to the new car warranty in terms of coverage, which is nice. I know values have crept back up, but your dealer's pricing is probably the top end of the market. Prior to certification, it's likely that they took the car in for $10-12k less than their advertised price. I'd push harder on price, considering it's still a buyer's market and the C2S is the volume 911. There's plenty of nice examples out there.

Good luck!

I don't mean to pry, but why don't you give us an idea of how much the dealer is asking for the car and possibly we can guide you further. Mark is right about the $10 - $12K above what they took it in for so you should have some "wiggle" room versus their asking price. My guess is maybe around $55K or so on the asking price?

63k is too much for that car. I agree that mid to high fifties is more reasonable. Keep looking like Number9ine says. Lots of cars out there. Don't shy away from an 06 with low miles either. There were no upgrades from 06 to 07.

For me a CPO car is the way to go..

Good luck and be patient..
