Porsche Scrappage Scheme

Currently there is no official Porsche scrappage scheme active. Porsche drivers looking to scrap their cars or vans are recommended to compare prices to maximise the payout from scrapping their vehicle.

What is the Porsche scrappage scheme?

One of the very few manufacturers to be in this position, Porsche has never supported any scrappage scheme of any type – not even the government-backed scheme seen in 2009.

Is the Porsche scrappage scheme coming back?

As Porsche has never supported a scheme up to this point, it seems unlikely that there will be any form of scrappage scheme in the near future.

How did the scrappage scheme work?

The 2009 Scrappage Scheme was set up by the Government to help the motoring industry recover following the economic crisis of 2008. Anyone who owned a car built before 31st July 1999, later extended to 29th February 2000, could receive a £2,000 discount on buying a new car, with £1,000 coming from the government and a further £1,000 coming from the manufacturer you were buying the car from.

Porsche was one of the few brands not to be involved in this scheme, however, that didn’t stop the owners of 101 Porsches from scrapping their cars as part of the incentive.

Petrol Cars:

There was no restriction on the fuel type that could be traded, as the scheme was solely based on the age of cars being scrapped.

Diesel Cars:

There was no restriction on the fuel type that could be traded, as the scheme was solely based on the age of cars being scrapped.

Electric Cars:

Porsche’s first fully electric car, the Taycan, was not available until 2019, a decade after the 2009 scrappage incentive ended, so there were no electric Porsches scrapped as part of the scheme.

Do I qualify for a Scrappage Scheme Offer?

Just because Porsche has never offered a scrappage scheme doesn’t mean that you can’t make the most of one that does exist. Three location-based scrappage schemes are currently in operations, and their eligibility rules and regulations are explained below:

  • London – available to London residents with a vehicle that is not ULEZ compliant
  • Birmingham – available to those who work 18 hours a week or more within the Birmingham CAZ, who earn £30,000 a year or less and have owned a non-compliant vehicle since 10 September 2018
  • Scotland – Available to owners of non-compliant vehicles who live within a 20km radius of a Scottish Low Emission Zone
