Independent Porsche Consultancy Services
A class-leading, personal service for prospective drivers of pre-owned Porsche sports cars that will save you money! We aim to be the leading provider of private client Porsche pre-purchase inspection services in the UK. Within our defined central, southern England operational area and required safety conditions, we go to wherever the car is located.
As well as the mainstream sports cars, we have specific in-depth experience of the early and classic 911s and the faster contemporary 911s (996/997 GT2/3, Turbo, etc). We use Porsche PIWIS 2 diagnostic software and data to establish authenticity, originality and actual mileage of the post 1997 models.
Please note that we only inspect Porsche sports cars and so cannot help with Cayennes, Panameras or Macans.
