Stk#11177

*Plus tax, tag and $599 admin fee. 5,000 miles per year. $5995 due at signing. With Approved Credit.

If rather wait until 2015 to get a 2013, by then the payments for purchasing would be $500 a month with unlimited mileage.

I havent' driven either yet, but apparently the difference between the sandard and S model this time around are like night and day.

I heard some stories that makes it sound to me as if the dealers are using the base 981 to upsell the Carrera. A guy comes in curious about the new Boxster and is also considering the more expenisve 991 Carrera. After the Boxster test drive the buyer isn't really overwhelmed by the power so the salesman then puts the buyer into the 991 Carrera with 350 HP for a spin. Pretty clever. With interest rates so low more expensive cars can be packaged very attractively and of course more sales/commissions.

If he tests the Boxster S and standard Carrera back to back not such a big difference. The salesman can't roll out the Carrera S to test against the Boxster because those can easily come in over $120K with options, and that's way above traditional Boxster pricing.


p.s.
How long is that lease? Depending on your credit rating, it may not really be worth fronting the lease down payment.

Two year lease!! That means after two years I'm out $20k, come to think of it I might be out that much after two years of purchasing one new

I got some numbers for a 12k miles a year lease, with around $3k down it was something like $850 for a manual 2013 Boxster base. PDK and a few other options easily add another hundred. And the S, forget about it - easily over $1k lease.

Really beautiful cars, but I think for that much, it's better to wait and buy one used. You can get it paid off much quicker were as with the lease you sort of pay for a lot more of the depreciation too if you bought it out after the lease end.

Instead of leasing for $850 a month, you can probably pay off a $25-$30k car in the same 3 years, albeit it will likely be a 2008 or 2009 at best.

That's the way a lease works , you're essentially paying the depreciation, taxes, and a little extra. Always better buying a 2+ year old model unless its the type of car that has unusually low depreciation.
