I just bought my third Porsche, a 99 C2. Before I tell you guys how many miles are on it, I want as many opinions as possible to tell me what they consider is high mileage on that car. Basically, I want to get a feel for when this engine and drivetrain are considered retired. I'm about to put a 1300 hundred mile trip on it and Im concerned it wont be good for the car.

Pre Thanks!!! :drive:

The engine and trans will last, well about as long as they will last. I wouldn't be concerned driving it 1000 miles. I'm sure you would accumulate that many over the course of regular driving. Crusing on the highway is much less stressful on a car than start/stop day to day driving. There are 986 owners with close to 250-300k miles on original engine.

I have 98k on my C4S... not concerned about the mileage at all. T2 on rennlist has 340k+ miles on his 996 Turbo, and a handful of members with 150k+ on their 996!


10+ pages of that high mileage information here

      Just recently purchased a 2005 Cayenne S with 303,000 kms. The vehicle runs great, small issues (bulbs, seat warmers yada yada...) and no warning lights on the dash except for brake wear sensors (!) on the vehicle info display. Should I be worried that an any time this thing will explode on me? The vehicle had been a leased car most of its life. Clean CarFax. I am a new Porsche owner never driven one before. I just need some reassurance or information on how these handle once they surpass such high kms.

      Anybody out there have any experience with decent warranty companies that would write a high mileage 2007 911 113,000 miles

      I'm coming off a great extended warranty from Vehicle One, but unfortunately they don't write Porsche over 100k. 

      I know some companies out there do.. and it might be pricey...and it might not be their top tier level of coverage, but i'm interested in it.

      Any suggestions? and / or who to stay away from ??

      I know fidelity has some good reviews. Has anyone heard of Endurance?
