    What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    Just ran across it and looks like a steal....but what do they say?? Too good to be true??

    MSRP'd at 103k, now starting bid at 88k

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    There must me a reserve price! That's the way ebay marketing work...

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    Not on this one. They must expect this thing to be bid on!!

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    Or they have a buddy online helping them bid up to the reserve price

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    You will not be able to touch that car for less than $98K+, there is a reserve price.

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    I don't see a reserve. Maybe you are looking at a different car?

    Porsche resale prices are not strong. Too many of them and most models look alike. He will be lucky to get something in the low 90's.

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    You can have a starting which is less than the reserve. I would assume if you bid on it, it would indicate that the reserve was not met.

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    That is not the way it works. It will state that "Reserve not met". The person currently bidding is so far the top price.

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    The 700 miles indicates it's a demo, or a car sold and then quickly returned (in which case the returnee negotiated his way out, probably lost some money in the process), so the dealer now has a whole lot more "room" to deal on it. It won't make it up to $98K, because it's been driven. Who would pay brand-new money for a car somebody else has thrashed-around who-knows-how-hard for 700 miles? I would think $92-93K would buy the car. Not a bad deal if that's the spec you're after, and you don't have to pay for transport cross-country. But why the excitement tkids? there's 8 flippin days left on this auction. Thusfar, it's just a common listing with a starting bidder, who's likely just the dealer himself getting things kicked-off.

    Re: What a deal on an Ebay C4S w/ 700 miles.

    Not really excited. Just the only true deal I have seen on Ebay for a C4S, even on its starting bid. Just posting it for what reason, I don't know. Seems like I am just spending alot of time explaing about the reserve price that is non existent.
