Sorry, I had to go on cars.com first to look for a cheap high mileage stripper 2014 GT3 before the owners find out.

Well done guys.

Outstanding!

Great readout Rob and a huge well done to you and the rest of the COG team.

I found it very interesting that apparently only certain engines may ever show the defect. Regardless, we're now covered either way!

+1, I signed up for it but didn't do anything more. So grateful to those that did.

Thank you
Fred

Well done to COG and to Porsche.
Now, this car deserves its right treatment, track to death and reborn again and again

When a few stepped forward tasked to speak for so many who stood idly by. What can we say, you have our respect.

Kudos to you and the group and kudos to Porsche and the GT Team. A lot of brand equity in this outcome.

Fantastic! We owe you guys huge thanks and more for your efforts.

So glad the cynics were wrong, and that you guys chose to approach this in a positive way and gave Porsche the opportunity to do the right thing, which they certainly did. Porsche is a great company - only a great company can engineer cars which reliably deliver so much performance and inspire so much passion. After 25K miles, including 7K track miles, I'm as awed and amazed with my GT3 now as I ever was. I was reminded of its brilliance on track this past weekend, and it exceeded expectations of passengers, as it always does.

My prediction was a 10yr/100K warranty, and I'm impressed that they even surpassed that. IMO, it's a completely fair and appropriate solution, since it costs Porsche nothing for the engines which are fine, fully takes care of engines which aren't fine, and puts owner's concerns at ease.

Guys, no more excuses - stop preserving the car and go drive it! I'm planning to keep my GT3 a long time, and aiming for 120K miles on the meter at the 10-year mark.

Another prediction: market value of the .1 GT3 just got propped up, and premiums on the .2 GT3 will go down - as it should be.

Again, a thousand thanks to Rob and his team, and to Porsche too!
