2008 vs. 2007 Pricing / Deals

I have begun to see a few posts from those who have ordered 2008 987's. I have been seriously considering a 2007, but have been unable to find the car I want (987S) in Meteor Gray. I have searched dealer websites from CA to IL in vain--there just don't seem to be any Meteor Gray S's available with reasonable equipment packages. I didn't realize that the 2008's would be available in August or September, so now I am considering a 2008.

My question: If you order a 2008, are dealers typically willing to negotiate 10% or so off of the MSRP? Or do you have to pay full sticker if you order a new 987? And when do the fire sales on the 2007's begin, if ever?

If you want a specific car with specific options the only thing to do is to goto a dealer and order a car with the exact options you want. Tell them you want 10% off, they're ordering you a car so its not like your taking away from their inventory and they wouldnt have a sale from you otherwise cause your not buying a car off the lot. Expect to wait at least 2 months. You could also try calling around to a few local porsche dealers and see who will give you the most % off the sticker price, then order from them.

if you're looking for something really specific like it looks like you are its best to go and order directly and get exactly what you want. of course, depending on how much money ur willing to waste, resale value is better if ur buying an older car, so in that case 2007 would work out better. theres a reason they're called stealerships...
hope you find what you're looking for

I would agree with most of this, but keep in mind that Porsches are allocated to the dealer, so you are actually taking "away" one from their inventory, even when you do a custom order. So, they have to be willing to give-up an allocation and specific build date to accept your order.

Send me a PM and I'll get you with my Porsche dealer.

Located in Cincinnati, but he'll take care of you. Personal friends of mine.
