Which Porsche warranty are you talking about? The Porsche Approved warranty can be subscribed up to 15 years / 200 000 km (125 000 miles). And in the various countries I've been all the Porsche dealer told me the same: it's a worldwide warranty. Can be subscribed anywhere (as long as your car qualifies: regular maintenance at official dealerships and no crazy mods for example) and you can bring your car in any Porsche dealership in the world should you have an issue covered by the warranty. FWIW on mine I've got a warranty subscribed in germany although I don't have german plates and I've brought it to a spanish dealership under warranty (although the car doesn't have spanish plates either). Everywhere they told me the same: it's a worldwide warranty.

Cool. The 7/85k option was what the selling dealer told me was available as an extension. Said it was a Porsche warranty though who knows. They're remote so I won't be dealing with them in any case. When my 4/50k factory warranty is coming due I'll ask my local dealer about this. Great to know thanks! Though I've not kept a car longer than 8 years (ever) I really love the PTT ST so if it proves relatively reliable and the love affair lasts I may keep it for a long time, making the extended warranty an absolute must.

If you want to slum down to a GTS, I have a 2015, black with beautiful full leather interior in Cognac, Sport Chrono, Sport Exhaust, Turbo Wheels, 17 K original miles with original warranty until Sept 2019 and transferable CPO 2 yr unlimited miles warranty following that. Originally a corporate car, California owned and operated. Bought it a month ago instead of a 911 thinking I needed to hauling capacity. But it's just larger than I'd like for everyday driving and I have an old BMW 325 station wagon that I am going to keep for the dog, lumberyard, etc. So I am looking to sell the Panamera. I paid 74K for it - will of course take a hit on the sales tax & tags, but would love to sell privately rather than taking the abuse of trading it in. So any reasonable offer entertained. Reply or PM me if interested. I am in San Francisco area (Napa, CA).

Thanks but am looking for a Sport Turismo. Still toying with the idea of a Turbo S vs. Turbo but not sure that I am fully comfortable with the battery technology given I tend to keep cars for 100+k miles (would be out of warranty and would have to worry about diminishing battery holding a charge). I know there are a couple huge eHybrid fans around but also some detractors who have not owned.

GLWS and a private transaction transfers the CPO, correct? PS nothing slumming about a GTS, especially a naturally aspirated one.

I get the idea of the ST if you have a lot of hauling to do. Original warranty and CPO do transfer in a private sale. The CPO is nullified if sold through a third party like CarMax. The one trade in quote I have gotten thus far from a Porsche dealer doesn't seem to take the CPO into account, although I believe it would transfer in that situation w/o additional cost to the dealer. Prevailing logic is the dealer pays $3500 to offer a car CPO, so that will most likely be added to their asking price. Give the Pano a good test drive - it's 14 inches LOA and 5 in wheelbase longer than the Macan (we have an '18). Feels quite a bit different. Good luck in your search!

Quick update. Took delivery last night of this highly optioned 2018 beauty after a 4-month search. Not a great day for the inaugural test run. First planned stop is over to CanvasBack Custom Liners to see if they can custom make a cargo liner so the dogs can join in the fun. Lots to go through and learn. I should get a chance to clean up and take better photos and car/transaction details over the long weekend.






Many thanks to all forum members whom I have reached out to or helped provide assistance including SUPWAGON , pokingaround , Pana TJ , MKC91 , louver , jnolan , cometguy , jsfried18 , Johnny5Alive , mllarson FC356 and others I have forgotten to mention
