Following the appointment of Sime Darby Auto Performance Sdn. Bhd. (SDAP) as the authorised importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia, Porsche Approved Pre-Owned Cars was established the following year, in March 2011. The objective of having this ancillary business has been to make Porsche ownership a more accessible affair, especially for those who may not be ready or require a brand new Porsche for now.
Pre-owned Porsche models acquired by SDAP are examined thoroughly and the smallest details are check so that they can be reinstated to their original condition and specifications as Porsche Approved Pre-Owned Cars. Obviously, with its direct contact to the factory in Germany, SDAP knows Porsches best and has access to the technical data for all models.
Every unit that is taken in will receive inspections in accordance with the strict procedures set by Porsche. Only certified technicians can carry out such inspections and perform any necessary rectifications or adjustments that may be needed. The inspections cover no less than 111 points and only Porsche-approved components are used if replacement is necessary.
To qualify as a Porsche Approved Pre-Owned Car, the model must be no older than 7 years, and it must have cumulative mileage that not more than 100,000 kilometres mileage from the date of original registration.
If the strict Porsche requirements have been met, the car should deliver the same level of driving pleasure and engineering integrity that a brand new Porsche from the factory delivers. Thus, as the saying goes, “there are no old Porsches, just new owners”.
Those who purchase a Porsche Approved Pre-Owned Car enjoy guarantees and benefits that include a comprehensive 24-month Porsche Pre-owned Warranty and 24-month Porsche Roadside Assistance Service. And, of course, they enjoy the full aftersales support which SDAP offers to all its customers whether they have bought brand new models or Approved Pre-Owned models.
