I decided to have a complete pre-purchase inspection (PPI) done by a 3rd party (The Porsche Specialists) before committing to the deal and the results were great:
The car shows no signs of ever leaking or any heavy maintenance (removal, rebuild, etc) and according to the shop it seems like a beautiful, tight, like-new Porsche in terms of the mechanicals.
Tim at Holt and the shop that did the PPI found several issues that were all fixed as part of the deal:
- New tires and four wheel alignment
- New power top latch motor
- New high beam stalk to fix the high beams not coming on
- AC recharge
- Fresh air blower fixed
- Windshield washer fixed
- Windshield bullseye repair
While far from being a new car this 27 year old Porsche is in great shape and will soon be heading to Seattle by covered transport.
