Waiting for confirmation from my local OPC of the details

That would be awesome news.... Would that be on new Vehicles only though or retrospective?

The 15 years applies to the "Extended Warranty" moved up from 10 yrs. Will help some early 997s etc. thumbsup

That's great news for owners and OPC but not so good for some of the indies?

Hmm, interesting. Can't imagine Porsche or the Warranty Co losing money on this, so maybe the whole engine issue thing is a bit overdone...?

Given the cost per year and the fact that is simply an insurance product, this clearly makes financial sense for Porsche - if they were loosing out then they would not have been doing it!.

Not that good news for indies perhaps, but until the detail is out I suspect as the years roll by there may be an ever increasing list of exclusions.

For me if I was in the position of having an OPC warranty and the requirement to have it serviced at an OPC to keep the warranty I would probably not be able to afford to run the car!.

Since I doubt I will ever be in a position to buy a new Porsche and the list of secondhand one's from an OPC that I would swap mine for is equally out of reach I'll leave the celebrations to those who are fortunate to be in a position to benefit.

Its ends at 15 years or 100,000 miles. Whichever happens first.

Remember a number of OPC's offer to match service prices from Indies
and the 2 year service interval.
a 2/3 hour drive to have a car serviced starts to make sense

You do not have to have your car serviced by a OPC to keep the warranty valid. You will only encounter problems if any fault can be directly attributed to the servicing or maintenance. Same applies to parts and as wiper blades, tyres, batteries, pads and discs, shocks, clutch, belts, plugs etc, etc aren't covered then unless the part can impact on other systems then no need to go genuine, i'e discs an pads.

If this is true ......... Dance .........

'Double Bubble'

I'll be able to keep my 997T longer than I thought AND the value will be kept more buoyant by still having an official warranty when I sell.

My aim of swapping into a 991.1 Carrera S for no extra cash looks even more achievable. Thumb

So does that mean I could, if I wanted have an extended warranty on my 2005 - 996 Turbo S ?

I dont see why not iceboy. Providing you pass the opc 111 point check , have less than 100k on the clock and pay £1100 for a year warranty or £1980 for 2 years.and lastly do not have any moody rev ranges stored in the dashboard.

Its about £200 plus vat for 111 point check.

I am very tempted to purchase the porsche e warranty myself. Almost a no brainer for an owner of 8 yrs and older standard car. Imo.

Are you tempted iceboy ?

This should push up the prices of 996 turbos further.

Good news for owners

I am tempted.

The cars is looked after by Reading and I will ask if they will carry out the 111 point check at the next service which is a major one I think.

Having said all that, my car covers 3000 miles pa at most...actually this year it has covered 900 miles...........I know don't shout at me but I work in the city and travel a fair deal......but when the weather is good and I'm home, boy oh boy does she get a spanking!!

Then I think maybe I don't put enough miles on her to justify the £1980 over 2 years......

Could someone tell me what the warranty does not cover?

LOL
IceBoy

PS. The Porsche website still states 9 years?!...anybody have a link?

Apart from the cost of a 111 point inspection, there is the additional cost of putting anything/everything right they identify at the inspection before they will issue a warranty.

If you have modified the car in any way, OPC will ask for it to be changed back to standard - including a battery change if it doesn't have the Porsche (Moll) battery fitted. Essentially they want the car as it left the factory.

Then once the warranty is issued, you are committed to using genuine Porsche parts for repairs and services (if using an indy) or to Porsche servicing and repairs becasue they use only Porsche parts not OEM from Euro Car Parts and such like.

Having said that, there isn't another warranty that can come close to an OPC warranty is what I've heard. I dont have it and although mine is factory standard, I will not consider having such a warranty because it is probably not cost-effective for me according to the condition of the car reported by OPC and my indy.

My car had the 111 point check done at the same time as a major service and I was charged £65 (i.e half an hours labour at a discounted rate) on top.

What 'cheshire911' has said above about the requirements for the warranty to be issued and the cover it provides are correct. Everything not deemed to be 'consumables' will be replaced if they fail.

The £1100 I paid in February has been paid back about 15 times* over so far this year and I won't be hesitating to renew next month.
