    Uncle has a 2013 Cayenne GTS and just did the transfer case for $6k at the dealership (extended warranty covered it). Car has 46k miles on it. Do you think it's better to trade in for something newer or does it still have a good amount of life left?

    The new replacement transfer cases have fixed the main thing that caused the previous problem. There was a vent that was getting water splashed into it that would get into the fluid and degrade it.

    That is the only issue for those. He should be good to for a very long time now. People are putting well over 100k miles on those vehicles.

    What he should also start as soon as it is out of warranty is changing the transfer case fluid every other oil change. The fluid is $80 or so and its a 5-minute job. Porsche calls it a lifetime fluid, but its not. Everyone who has been doing this has completely eliminated the transfer case issue.

    And if he doesn't want it, I'll buy it real cheap from him.

    Not to mention, until the new Cayenne GTS comes out, it's the only gen available with a V8 that's relatively recent. These things sound absolutely insane and i'd have one over the 16-18 GTS's anyday

    We have a 16 GTS but its because it was specced too awesome to pass up. Meteor gray, black trim, platinum satin wheels, garnet and black full leather, sport chrono. its awesome. That being said, the V8 GTSs sound do much better. I have a hard time with the tail end of the 11-15 cayennes though lol.

    Same with the V8 Panameras. GTS sounds so freaking amazing...but can't deal with the tail end.

    I too am not crazy of the tail lights and rear end. The answer lies in the new gens, the new Panamera and new Cayenne both look amazing, and they're back to (i'm assuming the Cayenne too) to a V8. They sound awesome

    They hit it out of the park with the new Panamera design. The rear end looks super. Patiently waiting for a 2017 to get into my price range lol.

    Nope, and anybody that says they do is an idiot. I had a black guy dressed like he was homeless, with dreads, ripped clothes, come in in a beat up 2012 RAV4 literally last year. He bought a Macan GTS in 10 mins. I thought the chances of him passing credit for the lease were close to none. Plot twist he was a psychiatrist raking in 700k a year. Every sales guy has those stories, they sound classic but they're damn true. Never treat anyone differently

    It won't be long. My advice, wait as much as you need to and snatch a hybrid. These cars are a RIOT. By far my favorite panamera

    Quad sports exhaust with the rear light bar is pure sex. I've found a few super nice examples for $30k and am very tempted to sell my Audi S3 for one of them. If I get one with 50k miles and it's had its IMS issues resolved and all that, how long can I drive it before any significant issues pop up? 50k miles?

    My parents bought a Macan GTS in 2017. They've put 30k miles on it and it looks BRAND NEW. The build quality on Porsche is something other-worldly. Yeah you spend a ton of money up front, but they hold their value for a reason.

    You need to get it inspected at a dealership or specialised independant shop. You have to check the ims bearing, and any cylinder scoring that might have happened. If the car's good on both these issues you're good to go for a really long time. Here these cars still drive well after 120-130k km

    LOL my buddy's dad walked into our local Porsche dealership wearing camo and hadn't shaved in a week. He drove up in an old pickup truck. They treated him like chit and ignored him.

    He drove an hour up the road to the next closest dealership.

    Plot twist: He is a cardiologist who had been hunting all week and he was there to buy a 911, cash.

    Classic story. Any true professional will have the exact same approach with everyone, no matter what they're thinking internally.

    That being said, people are really intolerant towards sales people in general. If they come in the dealership, most will expect to be met and answered within a minute, or else they'll leave out of anger. Sometimes we really just don't see people, or are too busy and need a few minutes to come and spend the hour and a half you need to look at all the cars you're interested in

    What if this same guy just walks in like a homeless and asks to take a spin in a GT3 RS. Would you let him if you know nothing about him?

    Most likely not. We usually don't test drive them, let alone on a walk-in just like that. 99% of the people who buy these cars don't need to test drive it, they know that's what they want.
