The first car to be delivered under the pre-approved program was a bright green Porsche GT3 4.0. As per the Porsche approved guidelines, the vehicle’s quality has been assured after it passed a 111-point check and met the standards set by Porsche to get the ‘approved’ tag. The car was handed over to its new owner, Ajai Joseph who opted to get the car repainted in ‘Lizard Green’ from its original black colour. Out of the factory, the GT3’s 4.0-litre 6-cylinder produces about 500 PS of power and 460 Nm of torque.
Existing owners of Porsche cars in India can enroll their vehicles into the program if they fulfill the following criteria. The program covers used Porsche cars that are up to six years old and are under the 2,00,000 km mark. Once these cars have undergone Porsche’s 111-point check, they can be found by prospective the brand’s official India website, under the Porsche Finder tab. Featured cars are covered under a minimum 12-month warranty and customers will also get access to Porsche’s 24-hour roadside assistance.
