When dealers mark things up like that, I hope they choke on it, and eventually go under.  It reminds me of the early 1990s when Ferrari dealers marked up the then new 348TS to twice its MRSP.  They eventually couldn't sell them, any idiot or paid that lost a boatload, and Ferrari eventually cleaned house and nixed their contracts with lots of dealers.  However, today I'm sure some tech billionaire playboy will buy that 911R since its pocket change to them.

I think the tech billionaires all drive Prius's'z and Segways and that. Only a few aim to get a proper supercar

Yep, so another $800k in pure profit. Unknown if it goes to the dealer or if this is one of the 918 guys flipping a car on consignment. Their ad now says "contact us for price" but a rennlister took a screenshot of what the ad used to say:

I talked about this before but this markup is done to see how much they can get people to bite on. It's kind of a way around the fact that they can't just take the car to Barrett Jackson.

The salespeople always tell me "oh, that's just a starting point" and immediately start lowering the markup if they sense I really like the car (like with the M2 I posted earlier). But it doesn't change the fact that it gives them terrible press. One of the Penske principals was quoted when he opened that dealership that "we don't mark up over msrp". I'm sure they'll say, oh but this is a used car and msrp doesn't apply, but it still looks slimy.

The M4 GTS I posted on Friday apparently had a $100k "adjustment for market value" before it sold. I am guessing (hoping?) that they got a markup, but not the 100k they wanted. I'm even skeptical that it's sold - I did a little Internet research and that sold sign has been on it since at least August 12

That edit was faster than your GT3! lol8[1].gif

Got a walkaround of this at the mall. Confirmed what I already thought: like a gaptoothed Latina smokeshow, you're all about the rear-end and silhouette while kinda 'meh' on the mug.

My local Porsche dealer has 2 "used" GT4s in the showroom. They want $165k for each. With this in mind, I shouldn't have been surprised when they tried to cover up the fact the 911 I was interested in had significant front-end damage (undisclosed).

FMoV has an Aperta they are trying to move for 7 figures.

RE Amemiya is selling one of their "one off" build cars for 35k. And it would smoke a M4 whatever. Hand built from the ground up by proffesionals using the very best parts they can procure/fabricate. Legit supercar territory.
Their 13B powered Miata.

Nice. If I had a piece like this I'd basically just leave Billy Ocean in the tape deck at all times.

I have no plans of parting with my GT4 but if someone cut me a check for $165k I would cover shipping anywhere in the country. Plus a handjob

I'd raise your asking price by 10k (keep the hand job on the table, but get some negotiating leverage from it) or so as you do have the carbon ceramic brakes. You certainly don't want to be fleeced in this deal.

I thought the going rate for an HJ was like $100?

You'd be surprised. They usually have the Everyman car for appearances - which very often is a Prius or a Leaf, a family car, and a few fun cars.
