    Precisely, I think now might be a good time. I assume when the predecessor is released there will be a market value drop of the current one.

    CS or GT4 I know which one I would rather have :muttley:

    My thinking exactly regarding prices dropping when new one is released. I think it’s having the 4.0 na motor iirc so should be absolutely epic. Someone did make a valid pint on another thread regarding 981 gt4 prices holding firm though due to the fact that there will be a large price difference between the new and old models on the “second hand” market. And with them being hard to get hold of new it probably won’t have too much downward pressure on the previous model.

    RSK21 - if thats the case are you not just better off paying somewhat of a reasonable premium and buying from someone else and not bother with wasting your money "buying the range" in order to show loyalty?

    All depends on what you think is reasonable !

    Current 911 GT3 RS is trading at £100k+ over list

    Also depends on just how many special Porsches you want as the more you spend with the dealer the more chance you have of getting allocated the unicorns.

    Agree, it's stupid. Why buy 10 cars you don't really want so that you can buy the car you ACTUALLY wanted in the first place! :confused: Loyalty my ar$e, I should be able to buy cars as I please at fair prices not 100k over list.
    Rant over. :muttley:

    Find a dealer and go through the range of cars they have, buy then trade in for another model etc, once you have built a relationship and they can see you're keen on the brand I'm sure they'll give you allocation slots.

    I was sorely tempted by a Porsche Cayman, but then only a GT4 would do. Not paying £75k for the privilege of looking like a complete ****. I can do that for much cheaper! :D
    So the answer to all this is very simple... don't get a Porsche. Or buy an SUV like everyone else. ;)

    I would agree, I don’t see last gen GT4 dropping on the arrival of the new one for the very reasons you outline.

    Makes sense, especially if they are expected to retail around 120k :eek: double the last gen.

    Porsche are not only protecting their own interests but the interests of their customers by supplying a product that will hold it's value like few others will. Yes, it may cost more to get into initially but you can almost guarantee minimal depreciation over the term of ownership and in some cases a healthy profit over list.

    Compare this to say Mclaren and their astronomical depreciation on their cars from new as they do not restrict most model's supply!

    Ferrari and Porsche are both very smart with their production and if you buy ito them, they will 'look after you'... and make money from you at the same time.

    Yes I agree 100%.

    It’s a very clever business model those two brands in particular hold as opposed to the others like Lamborghini, McLaren etc
