Im thinking about buying a new 2017 porsche boxster. The dealer is willing to give me approx 17% off 70k msrp. Two questions:
1.) it has about 500 miles on it, is it still considered new?
2.) dealer is saying they could get this much at an auction but is willing to sell it at a loss to make new relationship. Is 17% the max i could get?
Porsche has been running alot of drive center vehicles at auction. You would want to ensure it’s not one of those. If it is, that it’s been properly reconditioned. I looked and lowest mile car sold had 1,200mi. So just ask about prior useage.
2017 PORSCHE 718 BOXSTER 2D CONVERTIBLE
Avg Odo (mi)
There are tons of dealers with left over 718 Boxsters and Caymans.
I think you could possibly do better buying a CPO model. They still lease, and you’ll get the benefit of the longer warranty. I’ve seen a pretty big selection of 718s with only a couple thousand miles on them. Buyers remorse I would assume!
It’s easy to fall in love at the dealer and to have an unrealistic image. It’s also easy (and costly) to change the mind a few months later.
I am grateful to Porsche for the 718 fiasco. It means that a 499 lease on those is coming soon and I shall get one. The car will have limitations but within its limitations, I shall enjoy my drive over the next 36 months or whatever is available on swapalease.
Thank you Porsche for the Dud. Thanks you middle aged guys with more money than sense Thank you nagging spouses for making them ditch the car.
