Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned

Procure Your Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

Are you seeking a vehicle that's Porsche Approved? This grade of labeling is in place only for pre-owned Porsche vehicles that meet the high-quality standards of the Porsche brand. With this, you can broaden your vehicle-buying options by adding a Porsche Approved vehicle to your repertoire.

The Porsche Approved Distinction


Porsche Approved vehicles are inspected by factory-trained technicians who conduct a mechanical- and cosmetic-based 100+ point inspection. Repairs adhere to the strict Porsche quality criteria. The Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned program comprises two distinct limited warranty coverages. 

  1. The limited warranty covers 6 years with unlimited mileage, so long as the vehicle is still under the new car limited warranty. 
  2. The limited warranty covers 2 years from the date of sale with unlimited mileage. 

Quality is Paramount

With a Porsche Approved vehicle, you can expect the driving pleasure, quality, safety and stability of value that you would get in an all-new Porsche. You're gaining a thoroughbred sports car with unparalleled charm.

More than 70% of all Porsche vehicles ever built are still on the road today. This record speaks for itself. To give you maximum security when buying a Porsche, all vehicles within the Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned program must pass a demanding quality inspection. An obligatory checklist with over 100 quality criteria is used for this purpose. This way, you can rest assured that your pre-owned Porsche is in perfect condition, both technically and aesthetically.

Battery Jump Start 

If your Porsche won't start, we will send an authorized servicer to "jump start" your vehicle. If your Porsche can't be started, an authorized servicer will provide towing service subject to the Emergency Towing guidelines. 

Flat Tire Service 

Should you encounter a situation that causes damage to a tire rendering the vehicle inoperable, the proper towing equipment will be dispatched to assist. Depending on your vehicle's tire/wheel specifications, it could be necessary to transport the vehicle to the nearest Porsche dealership for service. The cost to install a new tire onto the wheel or the second service call to return a repaired tire to the disabled vehicle are not part of the Porsche 24-hour Roadside Assistance program. 

Emergency Fuel Delivery 

Should you happen to run out of fuel, Porsche 24-Hour Roadside Assistance will provide enough fuel to get you to the nearest gas station. Both the delivery service and the fuel are complimentary.

Lockout Service 

Due to the unique engineering of your Porsche, gaining access to a vehicle without the vehicle key could cause damage. Should a key be locked within the vehicle, please contact your Porsche dealership or Porsche 24-hour Roadside Assistance so that arrangements can be made for you to obtain your spare key or transport your Porsche to the nearest Porsche dealership. 

Replacement Keys 

If your ignition key is lost, broken or accidentally locked in your vehicle, replacement keys must be obtained through the nearest Porsche dealership and could take up to 48 hours to obtain. Replacement keys obtained through any other source will not start the vehicle. The cost for parts and/or labor to produce replacement keys are not included as part of the Porsche 24-hour Roadside Assistance program. 

Extrication/Winch Service 

Service will be provided to extract your Porsche from mud, sand, snow or a ditch, provided that the vehicle is in an area immediately adjacent to a regularly traveled road that can be serviced with standard servicing equipment. 

Trip Interruption 

Should your Porsche become disabled more than 100 miles (US)/160 kilometers (Canada) from your residence due to a warrantable mechanical failure, you may be eligible for reimbursement of trip interruption expenses. This includes situations where the vehicle cannot be started or driven without causing damage and the local Porsche dealership is not able to repair the problem the same day. Trip interruption coverage includes reimbursement for: 

  • Meals
  • Lodging
  • Car rental
  • Alternate transportation
  • Reuniting (returning your Porsche to your work or residence)

As an alternative to a hire car, travel expenses from the site of the incident to your place of residence or destination (including return journey) or the homeward journey and return transportation of your repaired car to your place of residence are paid for.

Vehicle transport to place of residence and, if necessary, payment of hotel accommodation will be in place if the onward journey is not possible due to illness, injury or similar causes.

Expenses for return transport from abroad in case of illness for driver and/or passenger, as well as additional expenses for overnight accommodation caused by the illness, can be paid for the affected persons.
