Pre Purchase Inspections have been said to be the best money you can spend on your next Porsche before you buy it. Have an expert look over what you are about to spend a large amount of money on to make sure you are getting what you think you are getting. Once you get into a car that turns out to be a lemon it can be very hard and expensive to get out of it. These classic Porsches are great cars but they can be a nightmare if you buy the wrong one.
If you are looking at a particular car and you need an independent expert to evaluate a car on your behalf then we are here to help. Your inspector has decades of buying experience on early Porsche cars. Mark Allen has personally bought well over 100 used Porsches. From working in junkyards as a teenager & buying parts cars, to a used Porsche parts store on eBay, to collision and body/paint training, to dealership management and purchasing, auction sales & purchasing - we have done it all. More than a service shop can offer we know authenticity throughout, extensive collision understanding, able to spot most all corrosion metal work, knowledge of factory Porsche panels so we can spot when a panel has been previously damaged and swapped out, market knowledge and advanced historical price trend experience gives us the upper hand when looking at a used Porsche.
All PPI focus on these areas - Quality of the car - Is the car worth buying, Accident history or major rust/structural issues, Mechanical condition, Authenticity, what is missing.
Some PPIs require addition time and increased cost to fully understand the vehicle.
