This is the only “Porsche Sanctioned” extended warranty. And as with ALL warranties it is covered by a third party company, in this case Safe-Guard out of Florida.
I got this warranty from my dealer, Platinum level, $100 deductible/$0 after one year. At the time, my 2015 S’s waranty was to expire in a few weeks, this past July. Price: $4k, 3 years added to my expiring 4 year factory warranty or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.
I am a low mileage driver and had under 23k miles at purchase. Similar terms for Fidelity, which was slightly cheaper and readily accepted at my dealer. This was my SA’s first sale of this “Porsche branded” warranty. So maybe it’s a crap shoot, but I felt better that for a few hundred bucks more it said Porsche Protection Plan at the top of the contract. Less hassle with claims later?, we’ll see, but my tranny was replaced under factory warranty to a tune of $17k and I’m not taking any chances.
DONT BUY UNTIL YOUR FACTORY WARRANTY IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE or you’re about to hit 25k miles, it’s all back timed from delivery date anyway (my contract says 84 months, ie: 7 years, but the car was 48 months old at time of purchase and my coverage is for 3 more years past factory, 48+36=84.... Now if you are a high mileage driver and expect to put 30k on the odo in the first year, CONSIDER THIS: prices do go up after 25k miles AND after the first of the new year. So if your 3 years in on your car and pushing 25k on the odo, start looking around. I was going to go with Fidelity at first as I said at the top, since it’s the company my dealer regularly uses (shall I go so far as to say “sanctions”?) but the “Porsche snob” in me said pay a little more for the badge
Since I didn’t order the embossed crest on the headrest, I had plenty of money laying around for the more expensive warranty....
hope this helps and safe driving.
