    what is the profit margin on, say, a $120,000 porsche after all the fees?

    what portion of buyers would you say have ruined their finances to get a car they cant afford, and what are the craziest (i.e. most unwise) financing options that the dealership offered to help finance the car?

    ratio of visitors to window shoppers?

    Yes and no. The next model will still have the Base and S have a 4 Turbo, while the GTS and GT4/Spyder will have NA 6. Next generation however, around 2023, should by hybrid or electric.

    Not that often tbh. We do get dreamers but they are generally aware of their financial position and don't waste your time.

    ratio of visitors to window shoppers?
    Profits are around 10% on the car's price, and around 20% on options. So it really does depend on your spec. We don't do that many crazy leases or financing, Porsche is very very conservative. However we have people buying through leasing companies who will boost the residuals to ridiculous amount. Customer always get f*cked on the back end because they're responsible for it.

    Ratio varies depending on lead type. Email leads i'd say 80% window shoppers, phone leads around 50%, walk-ins around 20%. It's not that bad. Most people think they can afford it until they actually get the prices. This is the most common

    996 are the best he can get in this price range, i'd look for a 4S they look the best with the Turbo body. Have the engine inspected since the cylinders are prone to scoring and have the IMS bearing replaced, should run him around 1-1.5k but it can prevent the engine from blowing up

    used Cayenne's are in abundance and super cheap and I'm tempted to buy my dad one as a bday gift.

    how risky a buy is a 08 Cayenne with 100K miles and solid service record?

    Reason for a Cayenne specifically is because he loves Porsche's but only likes driving SUVs. The Macan was too small when we rented it and used ones are still $30K+ and the Panamera S wasn't fun or functional enough when we rented that.

    Go to rennlist.com and search the stickied threads on the top of the cayenne forum. The 08-10 Cayennes are generally reliable.

    I know most people hate 996s but i think the 996 c4s is one of the best looking 911s of any generation.

    Maybe it's just me, but I find all Porsche models look feminine as fuk. If I was dropping 100k+ it would probably be the last brand I'd buy (even after 100k domestics)
    Way too curvy, kind of like a woman.

    definitely curvy and definitely a matter of taste.


    for me, this suits my taste:

    i don't dig them and i'd spend the money elsewhere but you have to give credit where it's due. they've been around forever and are a symbol of something most other brands wish they could be. you know one when you see one. feminine is not the right word for them.

    Like crazy. We already have 150 pre-sold, this car is going to have a 6-8 months waiting list minimum for the next 3 years.

    I wouldn't touch them personally. They're cool cars but the 11+ are just such better cars. You should be able to find one at a really decent price, i'd guess 15k in the states? Just find one where the transfer case was replaced if you're not getting a warranty.

    I'm not posting anything I can't have released, not worried at all.

    I get that from a lot of people, that for their price they're not flashy enough. That's where it shines. The value is in the driving dynamics, and emotion. True car guys love 911s, people who want a nice car to flash don't. Until you've driven one extensively you can't really judge IMO.
