Edit: please do not PM to ask about the dealer. I will share the contact, if they agree, once ink is dry on my contract.
Adding data point on the Macan loaners:
Probably could’ve done a little better but was fine with the deal they were offering. I tried to explain the 10k waiver for Porsche miles for the month but without any documentation or guidance on that, I couldn’t really convince them of this program’s existence, cost another ~$500. I also liked the options on this one, ACC, Surround, PP+, and nicer rims. Will post pics once I have the car.
Negotiated only the selling price first, then introduced the lease perspective, as taught by LH. Given the mileage penalty unsure of how exactly to handle the calc but my total one pay is $6511 for a $69,490 MSRP. Low doc fee ($250) and base MF helped as well. Dealer is pretty easy to deal with, once I’ve wrapped up docs I’ll follow up and ask if they want to share their info as they’ve got a few more. PS. they took a $2500 deposit on CC which helped get me across the line for a $1000+ sign-up bonus.
Figured it will keep me busy for 6 months, get better gas mileage for my grocery runs than the 4xes (GC or Wrangler) which I had nowhere to charge free anymore, and eventually i’ll put it on SAL and move into the next thing. I’ve always wanted a Porsche and this feels like a good entry-level deal to get into a baby Porsche
I’ve got 2 out of 3 and I’m starting to feel like that’s the best I’m going to do for the color I want at-least. Got a lower doc fee and good discount, but I have yet to find one dealer who won’t bump the rate. At least this one only bumped it .00020 instead of .00040.
No it did not. Is there any doc I can point them to to prove the mileage penalty should be waived? PFS guy at dealer is new but I’m sure they’d do it if I can actually show them that it should be waived
DAMN IT! My Mom had a 2011 & 2016 Cayenne which she absolutely LOVED. She wanted a Macan so badly, but in the past drove way too much once we figured in the cost of maintenance with her driving over 20K miles per year. She’s a year (and 20K) into her 2nd RX350 which she is slowly warming up to. A 12 month lease keeps her under warranty and she’d only be on the hook for the 10K and 20K service. Not the expensive 30K service or 40K service which requires a spark plug change and most likely a set of 4 pads & rotors.
That is the major major problem with these cars, service costs
I had a family member who had several Porsche and he got rid of both of them because of service costs. Financially they could afford it, they just got tired of the ridiculousness of the cost of everything. If I remember correctly the final straw was a prematurely failed battery that wasn’t covered under warranty that was something ridiculous like $1000+.
