What is Porsche Certified?

What can you expect?

Driving pleasure, quality, safety and stability of value. In short: A Porsche which really cannot be described as a pre-owned vehicle.

Rather, as a thoroughbred sports car the charm of which was once tasted by another driver.

The warranty seal of "Porsche Approved" stands for certified quality.
