    Today, in Automotive News:

    Porsche to hike car prices in June
    FRANKFURT (Reuters) -- Porsche will raise prices in all markets for specific models by up to 2.8 percent this year due to strong demand for its lineup, the German luxury car maker said on Friday.

    Re: Breaking news on Porsche pricing. Glad I bought early!!

    Great news for the share holders I guess...

    Re: Breaking news on Porsche pricing. Glad I bought early!!

    Whoa...
    Mine would have cost me an additional $3000!

    How do they determine which cars get the increase and which dont ? Guess it must be based on the model year right? With the 06's getting the hike ?

    Re: Breaking news on Porsche pricing. Glad I bought early!!

    2% for the 997 starting August 1st.

    >>Reuters / May 20, 2005
    FRANKFURT -- Porsche will raise prices in all markets for specific models by up to 2.8 percent this year due to strong demand for its lineup, the German luxury car maker said on Friday.

    Starting June 1, Porsche will charge 2.8 percent more for the Cayenne S offroader, although customers will continue to pay the same amount for the Cayenne base version and the Cayenne Turbo.

    Two months later, the price for the entry-level Boxster will rise by 0.5 percent and for the more powerful Boxster S by 1.8 percent.

    The next-generation 911 sports cars, also known as the 997, will also cost more starting Aug. 1. Buyers will have to add on 2 percent to the current base price to get their hands on a 997-generation 911.

    The news further demonstrates that while most other carmakers need to resort to incentives to sell their products, Porsche's iconic image helps it to improve its pricing power even in the midst of a difficult market.

    This comes despite Wednesday's news that its quality continued to be rated among the worst in the industry according to a J.D. Power survey.

    Porsche's poor ranking, 32 out of 36 surveyed brands, remains linked to complaints from U.S. buyers relating to its Cayenne SUV.

    A spokesman for Porsche said late on Thursday that customers were unhappy with the Cayenne's harder suspension compared to other rivals and had also reported problems with its radio remote control functions, which are now being analyzed.<<

    Man! I'm soooooo glad I ordered my 2006 car for delivery this September! To think, if I were to order a 2007 car I would have to pay even more!! Pity the poor baastard who buys a 2010 car!



    I just consider it a fee paid to Porsche to get all the bugs out of the new-model 2005 so I don't have to worry as much.

    Does anyone find this survey a little strange? Toyota at the top yes, but GM???? Makes you wonder who are the ones greasing the wheel the most

    May 18 (Bloomberg) -- Toyota Motor Corp. led 10 of 18 car and truck categories and General Motors Corp. was best in five, putting the world's two largest automakers at the top of an annual industry quality study.

    Must the the surcharge for that expensive mp3 hardware in the PCMs!

    Re: Breaking news on Porsche pricing. Glad I bought early!!

    Not hard to believe. These measures have less to do with craftsmanship, more to do with driving off the dealer's lot and never having to come back. GM makes a pretty reliable and bulletproof tool. It's just not a tool anybody cares to own as much as they used to. Don't fall for urban stereotypes, as they're often undeserved lingering relics from gone generations. Just ask Jaguar... And Mercedes will be catching sh** for it's recent quality glitches for decades, far past when they actually shore-up the problems.

    I guess we got the early bird special

    Re: Breaking news on Porsche pricing. Glad I bought early!!

    Hey, i am new to this forum! Well, I am glad to buy my car early too. One question, since the price for the new C4s would be around 88000, will there also be an increase in price for this?

    Re: Breaking news on Porsche pricing. Glad I bought early!!

    What is 2%? In GBP is going to cost and additional Pounds1k. Not a major issue when you have 60k to invest in a car.
