I'm potentially in the market for a 718 Cayman GTS and have found a few leftover 2019s across the US. There is one in particular that I'm interested at with $97k MSRP and listed with only 10 miles. I'm not sure if warranty has already start but it's listed as a demo. It was produced in September 2018 so it's been sitting at the dealer for a year and half. How much discount should I be aiming for? I was going to start at $72k, ~25% off.

Other than the fact that it's still sitting on the dealer's lot, is there anything unusual about it like an odd color combination? Recognizing it's generally a buyer's market right now, if it were me I'd offer (set an anchor) quite low and see what the dealer counters with. Your thought to start at $72K seems reasonable to me. (You could start in the 60s, 69K if you wanted to be aggressive. You'll never pay less than your initial offer!) As a final negotiating chip if the warranty is running - and I assume it is - I would ask that the car be CPO'd. It's a way for the dealer to provide value to you in terms of an extra couple of years on the warranty at a modest cost to himself given the low mileage, ie, it will need nothing.

Just my opinion of course.

I'd barely change a thing If I was configuring it for myself! Great spec! If you can afford it, don't miss out for a couple of thousand either way. Good luck!

has anyone else seen more than 25% off on a leftover GTS?

I was toying with the idea of trading in my 17 CS for a 19 GTS

Dealer offered me a slightly lower than I'm willing to accept trade in value but 24.5% off on a CPO 19 GTS with no mileage on it

they originally offered me 20% off and without any prompting they emailed me and increased the discount

I've got better discounts than that pre-COVID so I was hoping for closer to 30% but I don't have a relationship with this dealer

The best I’ve gotten is 18% off. Seems like US Porsche dealers aren’t willing to deal.

Wow I read on another P-car forum that some people were able to get 30% off in the States
I saw the same post but I believe that was winter pre-COVID. I feel since it’s summer time Porsche dealers are thinking people will want a sports car during summer months. Plus with factories being closed dealers don’t have additional cars coming in to sell. They have to make money on the cars they have.

so now they've come up to 30% off...
