911 996 warranty advise

Morning all,
Having recently purchased my first 911 I'm keen to take out some warranty on it.
Its a 996 with 77k on the clock. Could anyone recommend a good warranty policy.
Many thanks, Phil

Hi Phil,
And welcome and congrats. Did your dealer offer you one at all? If it was a Porsche Indy, maybe see what they do and offer. An OPC will do checks on a car ad you need to meet certain criteria from what I understand, RE condition, correct Nrated tyres etc, so may be worth speaking to them. I know there are a few generic car warranty people out there, so read the small print of what it may or may not cover, the IMS for example, if that hasn't been done.
Best price doesnt always mean best cover, so shop around. Is there anything specific you are concerned about?

According to Porsche GB's website I don't think that you'll be eligible for the Porsche Extended Warranty since:
To be eligible to purchase a policy your vehicle must have less than 125,000 miles and be under 14 years old for a 1 year insurance policy or 13 years old for a 2 year insurance policy.
Companies like Warranty Direct and Warrantywise will be happy to quote for an extended warranty, but as with all insurance policiies the cover provided is all in the detail and you'll need to be very careful in selecting the level of cover with which you're comfortable. I'm sure though that you'll be able to haggle.!

Not sure where you are located. Hartech who are in the northwest have a compelling warranty offer for 996 and 997.1s.

Thanks Mark, The dealer has offered me Warrantywise Classic car cover. Just seeing what else is around as they have said if I didn't want this one they would be happy to put the money towards an alternative.
Regards, Phil

Hi had an autoprotec on mine when I bought it from Porsche Cardiff
Paid out £900 for water pump with no issues
Might be worth a look but not cheap.  Sooner or later you will need to run without a warranty
You can’t warranty against everything in life
