Hey guys, I can’t make heads or tails of the numbers I’m getting for a '23 demo Macan (mileage is 6835) for a 12/15k. Hoping for someone to chime in on my confusion. Here’s a calculator link:
The dealer is quoting me $691 a month with $3664 DAS. I can’t figure out where their number came from. Also – is it not possible to pay the PFS bank fee up front? That seems to knock down the monthly substantially. What is wrong with my calculator setup?
You need to adjust the residual due to the demo miles. I don’t know how Porsche does this but it usually something like $0.25 per mile above 5K miles.It also looks like they included you paying the acq fee upfront.
I’m not generally shopping for best effective monthly (there’s far better leases than this if so), I’m targeting a Macan for a year with optionality for purchase at the end of the lease. With that said, I’d like a Macan for under $650 a month (mental comfort thing for me). Also deal is already at 17.42% off and I think I can push to 18-19% given lease support ending.
I believe it was a broker thread and I’m starting to second guess the “inside” information. They pulled the same stunt awhile back on ending lease support for the MY23 Jeeps. Guess what, can still lease them today!
Let’s just be candid that the optionality is worthless. Just due to human nature and because any decent lease needs the RV to be overestimated, leading to the car being underwater at the end.
If you’re going to buy it, buy it on day one. Skip the ace fee and the monstrous MF and the used car loan APR at the end. Take a new car APR on day one
If you just want a Macan for a year, then be opportunistic. Last year March.April was a great time for Macan leases. No guarantee what the future holds but why jump into a lease when the programs are at their worst since then?
