If you are reading this then you must be interested in purchasing a Porsche 356, there is a considerable amount of demand for this model of Porsche so we are going to provide you with some easy to follow tips that should make the overall experience easier. The preliminary step is to first determine whether you can afford the vehicle. It is not just merely paying the asking price, you also need to service it regularly and store it in the winter time if you are living in a colder climate.
Paying for the Porsche of Your Dreams
Unless you are independently wealthy you will need to finance the purchase of the Porsche so prior to even going to look at any 356’s that are for sale you should find out how much financing you would qualify for by going to your local bank. Aside from your local bank, there are organizations that specialize in financing the purchase of exotic cars but they tend to charge higher interest than what the banks do so it would be prudent to always shop around. When you have the financing aspect addressed the subsequent step is to start booking meetings with prospective sellers and take the 356 for a drive. While going for the test drive it will become pretty clear whether this particular vehicle is the right one for you, Porsche has a great reputation for quality vehicles but the test drive is always necessary.
You should perform a title search on the Porsche before you actually agree to buy it. This title search will make sure the seller actually owns it free and clear. If you bought the 356 without doing the title search you could find yourself losing the car to whoever has a lien on it so this is one step you cannot overlook.
