    Discounts on Cayman S

    How much discount should one expect on a 2006 Cayman S now that the '07s are coming out? How about on an '06 demonstrator? I found a launch model really loaded for $71k US list.

    Is it a good idea just pass on demonstrators? Or would one be worth buying with a big discount?

    Re: Discounts on Cayman S

    think big...

    You should be able to knock off at least 8% off that price. (you may have a harder time if you live on an island)

    Re: Discounts on Cayman S

    read a thread yesterday on one forum swhich stated there were 15 or more unsold 06 models at one dealer. Lucky you - you can't get 1 cent off in the UK on any model.

    Re: Discounts on Cayman S

    The way some people treat demos would make me a little queasy to buy one. Another variable is was the car broken-in correctly? A good break-in sets the car up for a good long life.

    Re: Discounts on Cayman S

    My dealer has an 06 with 900 miles on it. Short shifter, sport chrono, 19s, sport steering wheel, PASM, and a few other goodies. Asking about 61k for it.I just had a Cayman S as a loaner and it is a really good handleing car, handles better than my 997TT.

    Re: Discounts on Cayman S

    That must be about 10K off list?

    i was the first to drive that car, and it didn't rev it at all, but i'm positive that others weren't as considerate
    if you search the internet very carefully, you can even find a report from someone that drove it after me
    another thing that would keep me from getting that car is that it is sitting there in the full sun and exposed to the soot/exhaust from the area constantly
    but if you like the spec, and can get a big enough discount, it may be worth it for you
    it's not for me, though, even at a huge discount

    aloha Steve,

    Thanks. I enjoyed the test drive too, and was very gentle on the car, didn't rev even up to the limit. But I agree you, not every one was probably so gentle.

    Who's your sales person at POH.

    thanks

    When my dealer handed the Cayman keys to me he said to really wring the car out and tell him my thoughts, even to let a few friends do the same. The car had 900 miles when I picked it up. It did not have PASM, and had juice drive (yetch). Other that that it was a really sweet ride and cornered better than my 997TT. Its stopping power was good too. The other drivers came away with the same feeling, one of them is another 997TT owner. I put about 200 miles on it before I returned it. I can't wait for the 6 speed loaner.

    Re: Discounts on Cayman S

    I would be weary of any car that Steve drove

    Chip, what is the longest you have owned a Porsche? I wouldn't worry about the demo part of the launch car at the store, as long as you like the options. Having been on MANY demo's in the cars there, 99% of people underdrive them on test drives. You need to really work Darryl though

    Re: Discounts on Cayman S

    sorry, chipper, i must have missed your reply
    my salesman is now darryl
    tim palms (location: no longer hawaii) knows i don't mistreat the demos
    i bet he doesn't underdrive them, though

    Aloha Steve and Tim,

    Nice to catch up with you! Tim, I've owned my 997 almost 14 months now. Will probably keep it a minimum of two years. I'm thinking of a Cayman as my next Porsche or (if it doesn't have enough interior room) a Carrera S. Probably should have ordered the "S" the first time around, especially for PASM on Hawaii's third world roads. The demonstrator Cayman S appealed to me bec. of its many options, but it's been driven now more than 1,000 miles by countless different drivers. ???

    Thanks .... Chip
