    MY08 price increases - why model % differences?

    I suppose this is relevant to all 997 potential buyers...

    http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=351722&an=0&page=0#351722

    Anyone have any idea as to why this is?

    Sorry to post in 2 places; perhaps an Admin could close this post in order to keep any/all replies just on one place?!

    ...just wanted to widen the audience of original post to the wise people on the 997 forum too

    Re: MY08 price increases - why model % differences?

    I thought the facelifted Cayenne model already includes an element of price increase from the previous model?

    Re: MY08 price increases - why model % differences?

    this is a bit odd - especially as the GT3/RS dont get any face lift changes !!!

    Re: MY08 price increases - why model % differences?

    AFAIK these rises are for inflation so it's not odd at all IMO. It's quite common for the basic car price to rise each year but for the option prices not to go up. If you get a few updates/improvements thrown in, it's Porsche's way of making the blow easier to take.

    Clearly PAG charges more % where it feels the market is less sensitive to price increases and so the price rise won't affect demand as much. It also helps them increase/decrease relative gaps in the whole model range.

    Re: MY08 price increases - why model % differences

    Except for the TT, this barely keeps up with inflation.

    When you consider P's economies of scale this increase is some nice icing on the cake.

    UK only

    The rest of the world may differ. And as there's no facelift for 997 in 08 it's not really relevant - it's just keeping up with inflation on materials.
