    Odometer readings on new 997/997S at delivery

    Typically, how many miles should be expected on odometer of a new US 997/997S expected at delivery? Do these cars undergo certain test drives at the factory before transport?

    Re: Odometer readings on new 997/997S at delivery

    46km(28miles).

    that was on my car when they delivered it to me.
    and yes they do testdrive the car in germany when it comes out from the factory line.

    Re: Odometer readings on new 997/997S at delivery

    I'd say everything between 40 to 80 km (25 to 50 mls) should be normal. The cars are loaded on trains in Zuffenhausen and brought to the ferry terminals in the North of Germany. Those distances of on- and offboarding shouldn't be too many.

    They do a testdrive on every Porsche that comes out of the factory, incl. drives in different scenarios (town, country, Autobahn). So you should rather be wondering if your odometer doesn't show any miles on it.

    Re: Odometer readings on new 997/997S at delivery

    I read the Boxsters made in Germany get 50 miles of testing. The Boxsters made in Finland get 30 miles.

    So I'd say 50 miles is about right.

    Re: Odometer readings on new 997/997S at delivery

    My GT3 arrived with 20 miles on it. Keep in mind each P car is test driven on the Autobahn just outside Zuffenhausen before they release the car. Once in a while the car goes back into the factory for an adjustment and then test driven again, thus you might see 40-50 miles on your car when it arrives. I was at the factory last October and they went through this.

    Hi

    I had just 6miles on my 2004 Cayenne S

    And.... 35miles on my 997 Carrera S when I took delivery..

    Who gives a damn about it anyway?
    25, 30 or 50 miles, what's the difference?

    people are just trying to get a "reading" here. It's good because you don't want 75-100 miles on it when you get it. You can be pretty sure those extra miles represent a heck of a beating.

    Re: Odometer readings on new 997/997S at delivery

    i got 45 km on my 997 on delivery..

    Its important because nobody wants a car that was meant for you to have been used a demo car at the dealership not even for 1 or 2 miles. It should have Porsche factory miles plus the 1 or 2 miles that the service will put on the car at the dealership.

    Re: Odometer readings on new 997/997S at delivery

    i had 28mls on my 997S which i took delivery some weeks ago at carlsen in SF.

    Re: Odometer readings on new 997/997S at delivery

    No official dealership would drive your car and then deliver it to you. It's insane. They don't need your car. They have demo cars and they are the first to actually drive a new car like the 997. If they do that, that means they are not professional and Porsche AG would kick the [censored] out of them. I mean, 1 complain from a customer and the reputation of the dealer (and porsche) would go down the toilet. Porsche AG would react and the dealer's manager (and everyone involved) would get in real trouble. A dealer would no even dare doing it
