Well, actually, the idea was to buy one for less in a bad color, change the color, add x73, all for way less than a new 718 4.0 gts

Go to the 981 page on Rennlist and put out a feeler. There is always someone on the fence that could be swayed for the right offer.

I agree 100%, prices are crazy right now on 981 S

Karen thinks I should wait until fall to get one, but you won’t find that dream car if your not looking

At the same time, no point in over paying

Right now I don’t have a street p-car, and that makes me sad

Prices will not be cheaper in the fall. Inflation numbers out today, used car prices in general are up 7% month over month in May 2021 and up 10% month over month in April 2021. Porsche’s are up…

What are you looking for, options price range etc?

Nearly impossible to get right now. Easier to get a GT3! At least you can pay for one of those.

i know, i know

that is why it is so frustrating

the epa stop sale on 981/991 sport chrono cars has resulted in a more limited supply and inflated prices

as much as i want a 981 S, and am considering a 718 (982) S, because the 981 S prices are so over inflated right now

karen says just wait until the right car at the right price comes along

so i keep looking

Noticed a flood of new Boxster 981 listings

I assume the EPA issues have been resolved, does anyone know?

Wondering if the $1B fine VW and BMW just got hit with has anything to do with it

I also noticed some listing price drops, but I think they are still about $5K too high after

In the mean time I showed Karen the 25th anniversary edition Boxster, which I should not have done

I configured one on the Porsche web site, but was very disappointed I could not get the hoops painted in that snappy gold trim color - an oversight on an otherwise gorgeous special edition car

I suggested gt silver, black leather, black top but Karen likes the gt silver / red / red

With only 1250 count world wide, not likely to happen anyway, but one can dream!
