    Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    Autocar (out Today) did residual excecise with Lex and Porsche Boxster holds 54% of new cost after 3 years 60,000 miles.

    Great news!!!

    Re: Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    60,000 Miles? Well that's a good excuse to drive lots then!

    Re: Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    I am really puzzled by the different market demands. In the US, for Porsche, it is not the residuals that is the concern. It is SELLING the Boxster. Though a wonderful car, recently in the States it is looked upon with some contempt. "It is the cheap Porsche (if you can call it a Porsche) with feminine overtones."

    The reaction to the Cayman will be interesting.

    Re: Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    Nberry,

    I need my boxster to keep in touch with my feminine side...you on the other hand must be very in control of yours....saturday nights I guess!!!

    Did they do other cars too? Their figures in the back of the magazine always had the boxster as one of the top cars at 72%

    Having just been trying to sell my 2001 986 privately and not having any interest at all I am part exchanging it on saturday, when i collect my 987. I am getting 52% on a 4 year old car (19k miles), and should really have got 58% if sold privately.

    Too late for me, but how do you lot sell your cars? I started off in autotrader (magazine and website) and the only calls you get are from other magazines or services claiming they can sell it for you better.

    I have never bought a car of this kind of price or above second hand, where do people go? I have the feeling I would go to a dealer not a private seller and get a bit more piece of mind when spending that kind of money.

    Re: Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    Had the same problem, think it's verry difficult to sell any recent Porsche privately. Lot of buysers want the piece of mind they get when buying from a dealer.

    I would also not buy privately, like the service I get from the dealer, the invitations to test drive new models etc. I'm happy to pay a little extra for that.

    Re: Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    I sold my Boxster S by placing it at a local independant Porsche dealers on a sale-or-return basis. They sold it for me within 6 weeks, and returned to me the amount I would have got from a private sale. They obviously sold the car in excess of that and took their margin. I has very happy with the outcome - I didn't have to do anything apart from pick up the cheque! I'd too tried Autotrader, Top Marques etc beforehand and had no luck.

    Re: Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    It's true. He's my 02 Boxster S sitting at the dealership after being certified. It has almost 60k miles on it. Pictures were taken yesterday.

    Re: Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    Asking price was $35900

    How much do you pay for one in the US? (including options)

    Re: Boxster tops residuals shoot out!!!!

    Martin,

    Sounds familiar - I had the same problem with my Aug 2001/Y Boxster S (with 22k miles).

    No real interest, ended up trading in at PCEL for 48% of original purchase price. Wound me up at the time, but forgotten about now.
