Porsche has long been a symbol of luxury and performance worldwide. The founder, Ferdinand Porsche, was once chief engineer at Mercedes Benz, but left in 1930 to begin his own company to produce cars that have become legendary for their performance and quality. To this day, Porsche has maintained its status in the automotive industry as a producer of unparalleled super cars and racing innovation.
This brand revolutionized the industry with the release of the 911 Turbo in 1995, which was the first vehicle to have onboard computer diagnostics. We were there then, and continue to maintain our reputation as Santa Fe’s top Porsche repair and service technicians.
Do Porsches require a lot of maintenance?
Like all vehicles luxury or not, require regular maintenance to keep them running efficiently and to help prevent serious issues. These vehicles are known for their performance and luxurious quality. As luxury cars, they may require more frequent or specialized maintenance than some other vehicles.
Keep in mind, the maintenance schedule and requirements will vary depending on the specific model and how the luxury car is used. It is always recommended to follow the manufacturer’s recommended service intervals and guidelines to ensure your Porsche is running optimally and to prevent potential issues.
How often does a Porsche need servicing?
Porsche recommends service intervals for their vehicles based on time or mileage, whichever comes first. The specific schedule for your car’s model can be found in the owner’s manual or by consulting a Porsche dealer.
