Importing US Porsches and other cars

Some of you guys might know this already, but part of my job is importing cars from the US and selling them here (I'm a registered dealer in Ontario). We all know Porsches are cheaper in the US, and now with the dollar at par and likely to stay there, the savings are that much better.

If anyone is looking for a new car, but doesn't want to go through the work of importing, drop me a line. Fees are reasonable, and because of regulations in Ontario, you're protected buying through a registered dealer.

The level of service offered is anywhere from simply doing the import process on a car you've already found, PPI'd and purchased, to sourcing, buying, licensing and delivering right to your door.

For most cars, I inspect it in person before completing the deal, including checking paint with a paint gauge. PPI is a must on any car that's not still under factory warranty.

There's no risk involved - the car is guaranteed to be as described. The only downside to shopping this way is you don't get to test drive the car yourself. But it will be test driven, either by me personally, or as part of a PPI package.

A few recent imports:
09 Mini Cooper S from Chicago
04 Corvette C5 from Florida
Countless 08 and 09 E250 cargo vans (we rent, lease and wholesale these)
07 BMW 750i

I'm currently working on a couple Cayennes and a boxster. Corvettes are also a steal out of the US. Some Cadillac models too (CTS, DTS, but not Escalade).

Drop me a line if you want more info. Website is here: Canadian Auto Leasing & Financial

I thought the car had to be new or 6 years old or older to import. Have they changed the laws or can you by-pass that because you are a dealer?

The only types of cars that can't be imported (at least to Ontario) are vehicles under 6 months old (and even then, there are exceptions) and kit cars (can't register them in Ontario).
