To qualify, individuals phoning 1-800-PORSCHE are simply required to identify themselves by presenting their valid provincial hospital-issued identification until May 31, 2020.

Porsche extends warranty for three months
Toronto: Porsche is extending the new car warranty by three months for all vehicles with a new car warranty expiring between March 1, 2020 and May 31, 2020. This measure is free of charge for customers.The sports car manufacturer is responding with this measure in light of the recent greatly restricted business at many Porsche Centres.
“We understand that recent events may have caused extenuating circumstances for some of our customers,” says Marc Ouayoun, President & CEO of Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. “As such, we wanted to offer the benefit of added flexibility so that they have the option to focus on other priorities.” The new expiry date for the warranty will be calculated from the end of the current period. If the new car warranty expires on March 20, 2020, for example, the extension will apply for a further three months until June 20, 2020.
The new car warranty in Canada is valid for four years and starts on the day the car is delivered to the customer, while the Porsche Approved for pre-owned vehicles covers a period of two years. Warranty claims can be made at any authorized Porsche Centre in Canada. Furthermore, Porsche Financial Services Canada (PFSC) is doing its part in financing the mobility needs of its customers.
