Ok, so maybe I can be of help here. I bought my 2015 Turbo 2.5 years ago from the #1 Porsche dealer in Chicago.....it was a CPO car and when I went to see it in person, it was spectacular.....black/black and a brilliant shine. The sales guy said the previous owner had the entire car wrapped, ($7500 cost) and also had an aftermarket performance exhaust added. Also have some cool Porsche tray inserts in the doors.Hey guys
I found a car I like - all specs I want, the color, and it’s certified pre owned at the dealer. BUT - it has a wrap on it that I don’t want (hides the beautiful color that I know should be under there!)
It was a lease return, meaning the person who leased it returned it with a wrap. So the dealer couldn’t have seen any door dings or scratches (or heck - the car could have been keyed for all they know!).
can they CPO a car that was wrapped?
Am I protected if I remove the wrap and find something? After all, a wrap only last upwards of five years anyway - so it's not permanent!
Car was perfect, could tell the previous owner cared for it. The day I bought it there were two other parties waiting for it in case I changed my mind, which I didn't. Two and half years later the wrap is still on, and the car waxes up like new. The exhaust sounds better than any stock Macan I have seen/heard, and I have driven 60,000+ trouble free miles. My CPO expires at the end of the month, and I calculated that with my $750 monthly car allowance + 0.56 per mile reimbursement, based on my still $30k value, I have driven the car for free, and probably up $8-$10K which is crazy. I know I'm fortunate to get a car allowance but I drive my cars 35000 miles/yr, and the wrap really works. Not a single rock chip on it, although I did have to replace windshield due to flying rock. I will probably be looking to having it "de-wrapped" next year sometime, because all good things come to an end......my company is stopping the allowance gig and giving us company cars. So the Porsche will be garaged for weekends and I'm hoping it should have pristine paint when the wrap comes off. In short, maybe the wrap is a positive especially if the car checks all of the other boxes like mine did, and like you said earlier it did for you as well. Good luck, these cars are just so much fun!
