Coverage in case of a total loss

What is GAP?

In the event your Porsche is declared a total loss due to an accident, theft, or natural disaster, your insurance company might reimburse you only for your vehicle’s assessed value. As a result, there could be a significant gap between what your insurer pays and the balance you owe on your Retail Contract plus your insurance deductible.

Porsche GAP Protection safeguards you by waiving the difference between your primary insurance settlement and the outstanding balance on your vehicle’s financing.

Considering the risks associated with theft, collision, and natural disasters, Porsche GAP can help put Retail Contract deficiencies and insurance deductibles behind you in the event of a total loss.1

Porsche Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) is available on new, pre-owned, and Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned vehicles on Porsche Financial Services Retail Installment Sale Contracts at the time of vehicle purchase only.

How GAP protects your investment:

 

Here is an example of how Porsche GAP might cover a vehicle declared a total loss:

Outstanding Retail Contract balance   $75,000
Insurance assessment of vehicle’s
Actual Cash Value4
$66,500
Amount You Owe = $8,500
Primary insurance deductible2 + $1,500
Your potential expense   $10,000
Waived by GAP $10,000
Amount you owe   $0
