Hi all! I am about to buy a 996 C2 and since my last porsche experience is about 10 years old, I was wondering if there is a way to determine the real miles/kms a car has. Is a Porsche dealer able to tell you or there are ways to clock the car that cannot be detected (eg BMW cars can be clocked in ways that cannot be detected).

Unfortunately clocking of German imports here in Greece is very common practice, and I want to know what I am paying for.

In Spain it's a very common practise.

Manipulate real kms. to have a good image is very frequent in South Europe

If you want to bay a good car try to look for it without any harry up. Be patient, and get a meticolous search.

IMHO the best warranty is to buy your 996 to a German Porsche Zentrum directly.

If you get into the german web, you can find your as you want (colour, equipment..) There are lots of them , and they are provided with Porsche Approved warranty.

Enter here:


Then click on 'Gebrauchtwagensuche'

If you want to be sure that your Porsche has the real kms, just buy it in a German dealer. Do the managment to import the car according to the Greece Law and you'll never be regretful about it

Perhaps it will cost a bit more than buying in Greece , but it worths the trouble :D

In Spain there are lots of imports dealers, and most of them are not as serious as we'd like
