If a car is even slightly funky smelling...it's hard to get past the crowd of folks on this and our sister forum. We are a small, tight congregation, gotta look out for each other don't-cha-be-know'n. And that goes for the up-n-coming newbies as well!

Always make sure that you are "buyer beware" or you had better be buyer aware.

The spoiler is a little much for me. That dealership has a ton of nice cars, what's the story?
I recently saw a nice black 930 cab, now that looked like a cool weekend car!

That dealer had a 930 that was flipped on Rennlist for an excellent sum of money. So they do carry some nice cars. In the end it's a dealer...a ppi is a must(not always 100% fool proof). Due diligence is the key.

It's interesting that every car dealer I call has someone else interested in the car "BUT" they will take your deposit for a quicker sale.

i haven't heard good things about this dealer, I am local to it.

I've checked into some of their cars that had undisclosed accidents. I would be very careful. They had a Aqua Blue 2012 Boxster for sale a while ago with "minor" damage but a salvage title. Their ebay ad, if I remember correctly, said it was minor and that the owner just wanted the car totaled.

I was able to trace the vin and I found pictures of it completely damaged, totaled, air bags blown the whole nine yards on another website.

I would stay clear of this dealer, just my opinion

I have had a completely different experience with them. Recently my cousin and a buddy bought cars there and one traded in a 930. So far both couldn't be happier! One friend bought a 98 c2s and the other a 97c4s, one was not ppi'd (he's very impulsive). So far after 2 months of ownership couldn't be happier. The other was ppi'd, sean one of the owners agreed to drop off at shop of our choice. While sean was driving the car to the shop for the ppi he noticed clutch didn't feel right(slipping)and immediately contacted my buddy to let him know and if he wanted to move forward with ppi. He did move forward with ppi and it resulted with needing a clutch in addition to a bunch of other little things. Sean then paid for a new clutch in addition to a bunch of other items. Top gear is more of a wholesale operation which is why they are not that receptive to the general public. There location is off the beaten path and they don't have normal retail working hrs, appointments are needed but if you get an appointment with them i guarrantee you will be very impressed with there inventory and there prices are very fair. The owners are also great guys and real porsche guys like all of us. I too was a little apprehensive from what I have read but after meeting them seeing there cars and having a couple of first hand deals with them and numerous discussions about air cooled porsches my view is completely different. They also don't forget about you after the purchase, if something goes that's within reason they will most likely make it right.

Talking Hi Dan

Never got a refundable deposit so we can proceed to a PPI. I don't understand how we can proceed without some kind of commitment. I will sell this car to a fellow Rennlister for $31,500 and PPI's are welcomed and encouraged.
