Rancho Santa Fe Motors / Horrible Purchase Experience

1 Rancho Santa Fe, CA, United States
Contact information:

I purchased a 1987 Porsche Turbo from David Luce, President of Rancho Santa Fe Motors. Since I lived out of state, prior to purchasing the vehicle, I had multiple, very specific conversations with Mr. Luce regarding the condition of the car. He also referred me to what he considered to be the best Porsche mechanic in the area for a pre purchase inspection. I was assured the car was in close to mint condition with original paint, flawless interior and the only issues were a few minor oil leaks. I was given an estimate of $2-3K for the repairs. Based on this information, I purchase the vehicle and had it shipped to my home. Upon arrival, the first thing I noticed was a large piece of clearcoat missing from the front left fender(the shipper had this noted on the Bill of Lading). It was very evident that fender had been painted and very poorly. This was not disclosed after multiple conversations specifically about the paint/body condition. After bringing the car to my local Porsche mechanic to have the leaks fixed and over $10K later(obviously it had many more mechanical issues that were not disclosed by Mr. Luce and Mr. Lill who performed the PPI), the car is finally in proper working condition. I have attempted to contact Mr. Luce personally as well as through other channels with no response. Please do yourself a favor and do not consider buying any vehicle from this dishonest person
