Can Porsche reset the odometer?

I am currently looking for the Cayenne and I just found an extremely low mileage 2015 Cayenne S. Dealer says it is from Porsche North America headquarters and it was used to run errands. Car's MSRP was almost $100k and they are asking for $60k... and mileage on odo is.... just 350miles. And since it wasnt ever titled, it is being sold as new with new car warranty. Catch here is that the photos dont look all that new to me. Maybe they run hundreds of single digit mile errands over two years, but I'm not so convinced. I just wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience as such. Do you guys think I should commit to it?

Sounds unusual but you are getting a 4 year new vehicle warranty, right?

That vehicle with standard equipment and that mileage Blue Books at about 52k, that is with a title so an untitled one with new car warranty, I'd say 60k or a little less is probably what they came up with.

Go look at it in person if you can, if not, ask for detailed pics of condition.

Sounds like a deal. I'd be all over it...

I'd just look all over it for unclaimed damage. Just make sure one of their lot attendant hunkies didn't wreck it, where they fixed the damage themselves without turning in a claim.

Agreed. My guess is that unreported damage and repair is more likely than a Porsche dealer rolling back miles. You can always get a pre-purchase inspection from an independent party to check for damage if concerned. If it checks out that there is no significant damage / repairs and you have a new car 4-year warranty, seems like a pretty good opportunity.

If you decide you don't want it post details because someone else might be interested.

It's possible it was used at corporate, there's a handful of vettes that are passed around at the Tech Center that only accumulate a couple hundred miles before being sold off or what have you.

What does Carfax say on the VIN?

Odometer is correct. It was just very, very dirty from sitting a while.

So I checked out the car this morning, and it definitely looks bit shady.
First of all, there's no new car scent at all. In fact, it smells older than my 30k old car.
Second, there are wears on the driver's seat bolster and pedals. Considering it is a full leather car, I can hardly believe this wear happened during 300~miles.
Thirdly, passenger side dashboard has popped, or cracked along the windshield. I couldn't clearly see what exactly was the damage because of the angle but dash definitely isn't sitting right. SA said they just placed an order for the new dash to replace.
Lastly, air suspension operation wasn't quite or smooth. Perhaps it's due to long storage time but who knows.

Like someone said previously, I think it might have involved in an accident and they fixed without filing a claim.
$60k isn't something I would pay to test my luck.

Thanks all for your inputs.

Car was being washed as I was arriving and it STILL was dirty and I can only assume worse if you looked at it before the wash.

Accordingly to them, it was a corporate fleet used by Porsche NA.
