    Mileage on your 997 new?

    How many miles did your car have on it when new? What's the approximate range for miles if the car was NOT test driven?

    Thanks

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    mine had 20-something miles at delivery. u should not get high miles at delivery, even if test driven

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    Yes but what is an "acceptable" range of miles to be on the car?

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    i personally will not accept a car with more than 35 miles on it. otherwise, something could be out of place.

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    Mine had 7 miles on it at time of delivery. Around 35 or so is probably fine -- more than that is certainly questionable.

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    My new '06 (which I just took delivery of last night) had 96 miles on it (when I told my sales guy that I was interested). It was in the showroom, and probably had been test driven most of those miles. At delivery last night it had 104 miles. They sent it out for tint (clear bra was done on the premises).

    Agreed. Mine had about 8-9. If it has more it could be Porsche detected something which needed tweeking, and additional test driving, before they shipped the car.

    However, I'm not sure how to differentiate if the extra mileage was accumulated because of Porsche tweeking the car OR if it was beaten to sh*t by a dealer test drive... .

    If I remember correctly in the 996 and 986 era *all* the cars had 30-50 miles on them because they all got longer test drives.

    997 tt - delivery to dealer 25

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    7 miles at pick up on my 987S

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    60 miles, bought it off the lot

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    Ok thanks for the responses thusfar. I've been hunting for a car for several months and after several changes of mind I've settled on a 997S coupe. I'm seeking an 07 order but they keep hitting me with deals on 06's so I thought I should at least consider it. If so, I don't want one that has had the break-in procedure violated on several occasions.

    BTW is anyone else hunting for the same car? Best I'm finding is $6k off lot models, and 3% on 07 orders. I know I can do better!


    Thanks

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    4 miles. 20 is a good number I believe but how can you know even a car with 10 miles could have been test driven.

    Denver seems to be a tight market. I was really interested in ordering an '07 to my specs yet the '06 I just bought was spec'ed pretty much as I liked. I got them to add Nav and Sport Shifter for almost no additional cost. I think that works out to be about a 4% discount.

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    Sounds like a good deal. The funny thing is that most of the models left have "weird" options, such as sport shifter & exhaust but no Sport Chrono, or no performance features at all.

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    4 miles (6 kms) upon delivery at Zuffenhausen.

    After looking more closely at the window sticker from my new C2 I can see why the car has as many miles on it as it does. It appears the car was a dealer swap/purchase. The original dealer of destination was Porsche of Lexington (Kentucky).

    Oddly, my local dealer must have bought about 10 cars from Lexington! I take it as my dealer was almost out of units, and hadn't planned well on their ordering, and Lexington is more then happy to sell (easily) a bunch of MY06 units as they are waiting (or even getting) their MY07 units.

    Ah, the car biz!

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    4 miles on factory pick-up, and an additional 5 miles on dealer delivery.

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    I had about 8 miles on mine when I picked it up.

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    7 miles on it when I took delivery of my new 997S. I told the salesman I didn't want it used as a demo before I took delivery.

    I would probably have accepted it with up to 20 or 25 miles on it. If it had over 50, I would not have taken delivery.

    Re: Mileage on your 997 new?

    47 on 997s
