Yes, i read your ordeal on PH. it's dissappointing and lets the brand down IMHO. I would bet if they changed their attitude there would be a net gain in customer retention rather than any increased costs.

Ive not renewed mine this time. If i self insure i wont refuse myself any claims Floor


Yep threw my warranty in the bin after spending something like £10,000 on OPC warranties and instead spent a load of money with 9e on some lovely upgrades. Who needs the flipping hassle of an adversarial warranty claim process? Life too short. I always used to eulogise about the Porsche warranty being a complete no brainer but its scandalous the way they treat customers when a meaningful claim is put in.

I think a bit of common sense when reporting a fault with regard to the circumstances of the failure would help to oil the wheels of administration when making a claim.

By 'common sense', do you 'telling lies'?

Ok...rings bells, but I do remember a 997 cup car losing a Center lock
wheel at Brands.
I'm sure Danny will come up with the data...lol.

This reminds me of the ceramic brake debacles many years ago.

Porsche hailed them as the best things since slice bread for road or track and yet when owners rolled up with fried discs Porsche did not want to know and said that will be £10k plus vat please.

Warranties have more holes and gotchas written into them than a tea bag.

That 991 GT3 engine will prove to be a dog as the miles rise on them.

http://blog.caranddriver.com/some-porsche-911-gt3s-are-getting-new-engines-again/

"The repaired engines will be used by Porsche in development testing."

Aka chucked in the scrap pile.

Do you really want to track one of these?

The latest problems don't destroy the engines. Porsche and/or the aftermarket will resolve the issue and the cars will be fine.

Yes I have a 991GT3 so I would say that, I also have a warranty for two years which is renewable upto 15 years old so I'm good until 2029 by which time I'll be 63.

I can't say I'm that worried.

Alternatively to the car being considered a dog it might be that post a permanent fix its considered to the one to have as it will rev to 9k.

You could be right, I could be right but its all conjecture. Meanwhile I'll keep enjoying my car, just like the E60 M5 I had that was apparently going to grenade itself and have huge clutch issues. In that case I paid £93 a month for a warranty and whilst I did use it on occasion those issues which scared people crazy never occurred.

This is one of the risk of car buying now, potential lots of problems as they are just too complex. I had a nightmare with a Shogun the wife wanted a few years ago, repair bill over £10k which took a few months to get Mitsubishi to accept and a friend had an XC70 which fried quite a number of the ECU's in the car, eye watering cost to fix.
