Thinking about buying 2007 Carrera 22K for $44k CPO


Recommended Posts

Found a used 2007 Carrera on my local CL with 22,000 miles. Seller says it comes with CPO warranty that is transferable to new buyer. Lapis Blue, Tiptronic, Bose, Leather, and not much more above standard kit. 2nd owner only had it for 6 months and less than 4,000 miles but is moving so needs to sell. Its in pretty good condition - just a bit dirty and she did not service it while she had it since it was only 4,000 miles.

I am wondering if $44k is a good price for it. She says she got it for $48k from the dealer in November and same dealer is offering her $44k for it now. Seems like its good deal. I took it for test drive and it seems to be in order (except for a bit dirty and paint has some minor imperfections and chips and strangely she never got license plates for the car). Anything I should do before buying besides pre-purchase inspection? She didn't have the previous service records, can you get those from the dealership?

Thanks in advance.

If you have a good realtionship with your dealer they will be able to tell you what service has been done. If you can't get service history I would walk away from the car. Typically a CPO warranty is NOT transferrable.. You should get the right information for the dealer. She doesn't seem to know what she is talking about..

I may sound like a pig but i would never but a P car from a woman. I have seen how they drive them and care for them..:censored:

That is a good price for a CPO car. But if there are a lot of flaws in the paint maybe it's not a good price.

Find out if it's a CPO car form the dealer. Give them the vin # and ask them if it's transferrable.. I doubt it...

Good luck and be careful.

Thanks guys. I ended up passing on the car since too many small things felt a bit off so they added up to a red flag.

Back to looking. Also considering a 2003 Carrera Turbo since its in the same price range and always wanted a 911 turbo =p

I found this on CPO: http://www.porsche.com/usa/pre-owned-vehicles/approved/faq/ - sounds like the CPO is transferable.

CPO is indeed transferrable.

If you don't mind the tiptronic I wouldn't necessarily walk away from this car because it had a female owner for a short time. The tiptronic will also mean the engine is relatively protected form overrev. I would still get the PPI and a DME scan, and have the previous owner sign off on giving you the service records (Privacy laws are usually the reason a dealer can't release them). $44k is a pretty decent dealer price for a CPO car right now imo. I see a few passing around for under $40k but usually with a few more miles, and the same sort of issues. I was shopping for about 4 months, and last month bought a rennlist member 06 C2S. Just as a data point, it was $42K, no CPO, and loaded, including FSH and X51 package and full leather, but had high miles (64K). Perfect DME scan and PPI and car was very clean and well maintained.

Wow! I stand corrected.. Thanks for pointing that out to me.. I have always been told they are not transferrable. Good to know that they are! Good luck in your search for a car.. If you get the 03 turbo at least you wont have to worry about the IMS issue..Different engine..
