    How much off MSRP on new, leftover 2004 Cab?

    Dealer has new leftover 2004 Lapis Blue/Savannah Beige cab that I'm looking at. MSRP $85,700. How much of a discount should I insist on? I have my own bank financing.

    Thanks,

    Patriot

    Why not wait for the '05 cars?

    Ron - uneasiness over 1st year issues with 997 (coupe or cab), 996's are by almost all accounts bulletproof (my '01 Boxster was), and chance to save big $$ on leftover but new Cab.

    We'll see if the dealer does the deal I need him to.

    IMHO, Given that there won't be any new cabs until mid to late 2005, most good dealers will just sit on the car until spring comes and get neqar MSRP.

    Re: How much off MSRP on new, leftover 2004 Cab?

    The invoice is about $10K lower than MSRP. Start there. All they can do is say no.

    "by all accounts bulletproof"??

    what about RMS.

    Re: How much off MSRP on new, leftover 2004 Cab?

    1) Not bulletproof - same design flawed engine as always, with RMS issues.

    2) 15% is easy coming off MSRP. Dealers have 15-18% in the cars, depending on options.

    3) If it's the car you like, equipped the way you like, put an offer on the table.

    4) First year woes are prevalent. No question about it. The 997 is subject to many of the same intro problems any other first year model is. But it is no more or less safe than an '04 996 at this point, especially since Porsche, in its infinite stupidity/wisdom, has not FIXED the RMS design flaw in their M96 engine, nor the terribly flawed Becker audio component.

    Go for it!
