Looking for a good Porsche mechanic you can trust?
Germany has a knack of producing cars of extraordinary quality, class, luxury, design and performance. One of the more high-end of the German performance vehicles is the Porsche.
The name Porsche is associated with horsepower, unique design and performance. Starting with the very first road-worthy 356 in 1948, Porsche has only progressed in quality and performance. The 911 is considered by many to be the greatest model ever built and the unique design of the 911 has withstood the test of time.
Porsche has continued to use the 9- model designation and has since introduced the Boxster and Cayman models. There are a lot of importers for this German made car and a lot of auto shops that specialize in their repair, make sure that whoever you are dealing with truly knows Porsche. In the Atlanta area, European Motor Cars is the place to go for Porsche service. They know German vehicles. They have locations in Duluth, Buckhead, and Sandy Springs and can always find time to inspect your intended purchase and offer advice.
Maintenance on these vehicles can be expensive, so a lot of people neglect it, then just offload the vehicle when their lack of maintenance catches up to them. Consider the following before buying a used Porsche:
The Model and Year
Porsche has a long history. With that long history comes many models, the most desirable being the 911 and Boxster series. The price can vary dramatically based off of year and model. Vehicles of the same year, but different models can be separated by thousands. Take the car to a qualified Porsche mechanic, such as our location in Buckhead so they can assist you in determining the true value.
Ensure that the Porsche service guide is up to date and stamped by reputable Porsche dealerships and Porsche repair shops. You want to know that it has seen regular Porsche tune ups. Also make sure that the mileage and VIN listed matches the vehicle.
Have your favorite Porsche mechanic in Alpharetta run a diagnostic to see that the engine and computer are running in top condition. The system will also advise you of any maintenance that needs to be done.
Walk around the car and inspect every scratch and dent. Stand at a distance and ensure that paint matches up at all panels. Also, look for alignment, if one panel is slightly off then that may be sign that bodywork has been done.
Inspect the Porsche thoroughly inside. The wear and tear of the seats should fit the vehicle’s age; ensure all instruments are in working order and inspect the roof lining.
Ensure wheels, rims, tires, exhaust and lights are in proper condition. If a recent Porsche brake repair was done, ensure that it was done properly with factory approved parts.
*Some makes and models may vary.
We dream of owning a supercar. Cars like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin are all associated with speed, performance and a streamlined car design. Of course, the name omitted from this list is the one sports car that has really withstood the test of time. With very little variance over the years, the Porsche has always stood out from the rest. Who doesn’t dream of owning a 911 or Boxster? You are one of the lucky few who actually owns one.
Maintaining a supercar like a Porsche is not cheap. Parts and labor can really add up, and if the work is not done correctly, or the parts are cheap then you end up with an even more expensive bill as you attempt to correct the first mistake. This is why you need a Porsche service center with knowledge, experience and an excellent track record. You want one that knows Porsche inside and out, someone like European Service Center.
