Warranty

The 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera comes with a four-year/50,000-mile new vehicle warranty. It also has a two-year warranty that covers genuine Porsche parts, exchange parts and accessories. Finally, the Carerra gets a 12-year warranty against rust holes in the body shell.  Though this is the standard for most super luxury sports cars, the Nissan GT-R has a longer warranty. Nissan covers genuine Nissan parts and accessories with a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty. It also has a basic five-year/60,000-mile limited powertrain coverage, which is also longer than the Carrera’s warranty.
