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 European made car and we specialize in their repair and maintenance. In the Atlanta area, we are the place to go for Porsche service. We know German vehicles and have locations in Duluth, Buckhead, Alpharetta 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.
