You have to approach it as a car that’s more than 10 years old, one that will have normal mechanical wear and tear. Fortunately Porsche engines and gearboxes are durable and don’t unduly wear. Check for signs of a hard life; make sure the car you want to buy has been well maintained with regular servicing, and that things like brakes are not in need of immediate replacement. It’s a good idea to have a Porsche expert check it out for you.
