    997 Sales

    Had to visit three dealers this weekend to find a replacement tire for my Audi A4 (Most Porsche dealers are also Audi dealers in the US). No one had either a 997 or 997S. Sales may be slow where there is snow and not a big Porsche market, but here in Southern California, which is a large and important Porsche market, they are sold out. In fact, one dealer who has a customer who buys three Porsches a year, bought back a used one from this customer just to have a 997 on the floor.

    Agreed..we live in a different world here in So. Cal...

    Re: 997 Sales

    In Newport Beach the other day they had no new 997's except for the launch 997 cabs that had just arrived. They also buy used cars just so they have more to sell. It is odd to be at one of the largest dealers in the US and the showroom is filled with used 911's. Over the last several years they seldom have many new 911's on the floor. Sometimes in order so show you a certain model they will take you to the shop to show you one being repaired. The biggest difference between this dealer and others that the majority of their orders are customer orders and they are delivered upon arrival. Another dealer nearby orders a lot of cars for the floor. They usually have an example of each model on the floor. The reason they don't fly out the door is because they have loaded the cars up with options. So, you might be able to buy one off the floor there, but you better be prepared to buy a loaded car.

    Local dealer in upstate NY has two 997's, neither an "S", but one a cabrio with scratches on the trunk. Looks like someone cleaned off the snow with a broom or something abrasive. Damn shame!
