    Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    Just informed by the OPC today that all literature that gives a price of Pounds1117.00 for full leather on a Boxster S is wrong!

    The correct price is Pounds1846.00 and is applied immediately. Anyone else heard this?

    Seems like a bit of a cock up from Porsche and now makes full leather on an S that already has partial as standard, a real expensive option. Not too pleased to be honest.

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    I'm pretty sure the Pounds1846 price has been on the Porsche GB online car configurator for at least 6 weeks or more. I hadn't seen the printed price list so I didn't know of the discrepancy. I assume if you ordered off the price list for Pounds1117 and the OPC confirmed the option price on your quotation then they have to stand by it in UK law.

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    On my Price Notification, dated 7/12/04 the Full Leather option (TG?) is 950.63+vat. I only received this in writing at the weekend though. Perhaps I should sign and send it back quick! I do have the electric seats on the list at 856.17+vat, so that might account for it? Confuses the hell out of me! Just got the 'read part of centre console in leather' option put on too, released by Porsche a couple of days ago, so was going to wait for an up-dated spec/price quote before I signed. I'll let you know what price it is on the new letter.

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    Are you sure this isnt just a misunderstanding between the boxster option and the boxster S option?

    I'm fairly sure mine was about 1100 on my S and it is printed on my order so that is what i should pay.

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    I agree. Definite misunderstanding. I have the Boxster price list booklet in front of me. Full leather (standard colours) on Boxster is Pounds1,846 and full leather (standard colours) on Boxster "S" is Pounds1,117. More on standard Boxster because the "S" comes with part leather as standard. This is also on my OPC order form. Slightly more than what was charged for the previous Boxster "S".
    Dutycalls, if that is what your dealer insists on charging, go to another dealer. Out of interest ask them what full leather would be on a 2.7 Boxster and see what answer you get.

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    I think Martin might have a jolly good point. Looking at the price list book, Full leather is Pounds1846 for the Boxster, and Pounds1117 for the Boxster S (Which already comes with Partial leather as standard (a Pounds729 option on the 2.7) Go and shout at your dealer!

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    Sorry, dutycalls, I just re-read your post. Go shout at your dealer, and let us know what they say. Myself, I'm not going to draw attention to myself as mine is at the lower price, so excuse me if I don't query it with my dealer! Which OPC was it by the way?

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    If you study the online configurator carefully, it shows the base price of the boxster S at Pounds37,923 and then lists included options at Pounds729. This is before you have begun to add your own options. The Pounds729 is for partial leather.

    If you go on to add full leather to your options at Pounds1846 and then complete the configuration, you will notice that both the price and the listed options will now not include the original Pounds729. This then means that full leather on the configurator is in effect Pounds1117 because it drops the original Pounds729.This is what all the printed price lists confirm.

    Now we know that the base price for a boxster S is Pounds38,720 which is the configurators Pounds37923 + Pounds729 (partial leather)+ Pounds68 top tint windscreen.

    Hope this makes sense, I think I have got myself in a muddle. They sure don't make it easy for us.

    I was convinced this was a mess up on the salesmans part, confusing the boxster spec with the S, but he told me today that it was an error on Porsche's part in the first place and that Porsche have today advised them of the error. I have had to turn to Porsche Customer Services to help out and see if they have indeed made the orginal error or if the salesman is just not too sharp!

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    Porsche Customer services have just confirmed to me that Full leather on the Boxster S is indeed Pounds1846.00. This is now making less and less sense. Porsche keep telling me to query the issue with the OPC and the OPC tell me they get their prices from Porsche.

    This is getting ridiculous now!

    As I said earlier, ask them what full leather would be on a standard Boxster. Everyone is giving you BS, I am sure of it.

    Re: Porsche pricing error on full leather (UK)

    Just a thought but I wonder if partial leather isn't standard on a 'S' but that Porsche UK have insisted that it's added all 'S's supplied through UK dealers.

    It could then mean that the prices that you're being quoted are for the cars without the std UK additions.

    I think Porsche in the US do something similar adding optioins the consumers must have...no choice about it.
