What Is Certified Pre-Owned?

Some drivers may think that pre-owned and certified pre-owned models are one and the same. While they share similarities—like having been owned and operated by at least one other driver—there are some major differences that set these types of cars apart.

For starters, only select models are eligible for the Porsche Approved CPO program.

Porsche Approved CPO Requirements:

  • Must be within 13 model years
  • Must have fewer than 124,000 miles on the odometer
  • Must pass a 111-point inspection
  • Must be outfitted with Genuine Porsche parts

These strict criteria help ensure that Porsche Approved CPO models look and operate like they just rolled off the factory line.


What’s Checked During the Multi-Point Inspection

Both the appearance of a Porsche and its mechanical components are checked during the multi-point inspection. Paint and upholstery are just a few of the appearance-based features checked during this inspection. A thorough examination of the tech and safety features is also performed.

Some of the mechanical checks include:

  • Transmission
  • Brake system
  • Engine
  • Chassis

A road test is also performed to ensure the vehicle feels its best, and is worthy of the prestigious honor of wearing a Porsche Approved CPO badge.

It’s important to note that only Porsche-trained technicians can perform the multi-point inspection. As individuals who are specially trained to know Porsche vehicles like the back of their hand, they have a firm grasp on how these vehicles should operate.

Benefits of Buying Certified Pre-Owned

Only after a Porsche meets all of the requirements will it come with such additional benefits as Porsche 24-Hour Roadside Assistance for 2 years/unlimited mileage, which provides peace of mind while you’re on the go. Under this coverage, things like a battery jump start, emergency fuel delivery, and lockout services are covered 24/7.

On top of Roadside Assistance, another Porsche Approved CPO benefit is 2-Year/Unlimited-Mile Warranty Coverage. This coverage is available after any remaining coverage on the New Vehicle Limited Warranty has expired.

You also have the option to extend the warranty coverage with the CPO +1 Warranty Extension Program. This additional year of coverage kicks in the day your standard 2-Year/Unlimited-Mile Warranty Coverage ends.

As a result, you’ll have up to three years of peace of mind while driving your Porsche.
