Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP)

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

Available on new, pre-owned, and Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned vehicles on Porsche Financial Services Retail Installment Sales Contracts at the time of vehicle purchase only.

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.¹⁹
