Hi guys


I’m new to this site and would appreciate some help regarding buying a 997. 


I’m considering buying a 997 4S Tiptronic first registered in 2006 at an official Porsche dealership here in northern Italy. The car has only done 77000 km since new. I test drove it yesterday, and it feels and looks good. 


Now, looking at the service book it had a Genuine Porsche service in 2008 at 25000km, and then the next in 2016 at 74000km, also at Porsche.. Nothing in between according to the service book, which I find odd. 


If I buy the car, it will come with the Porsche approved warranty for 12 months, and go through their 111 point checklist, have new tires, brakes and drive belt etc. I saw the screenshot of the data pulled from the car, and it hasn’t over revved or had any limits exceeded. 


Is this missing service gap of eight years something I should be concerned about, or  would the Porsche dealership, and the Porsche approved seal be enough to ease my mind, that they wouldn’t touch a car that was not in good condition. 


I would greatly appreciate any comments or help regarding this, thank you.
