The Porsche website is currently showing 40 new Porsches for immediate delivery.

Are the supply issues over, or is this a cunning plan to force mega-spec cars onto customers?

75K for a base 2 litre Macan seems a bit steep!

Cancelled orders due to higher interest rates and general belt-tightening?

Porsche delivered tons of new cars in December to boost 2022 delivery metrics - mine arrived a month earlier than expected and I wasn't alone. I'd assume with them being a listed company now, they are more focused on things like that now.

There are undoubtedly cancelled orders there, but in the main these are the more common 'stock' cars anyway.

At least it's a 2.5S, Edinburgh OPC have a new 2.0 base Cayman at £74k!

They seem to be specced to a ridiculous standard, for example base Macans specced to beyond GTS prices.

If specd by OPC I believe they get a lot of extras free so increases mark up?

could be the most dull selection of Porsches ever in a listing.

I suspect they may need to pass on some of those savings to sell a 2L for 75K. You’d have to really want a new one.

Agreed. Unless you wish to spend 90 grand on an SUV the list is largely without merit

wobble That's more (inc OTR) than my CGTS delivery in November! It also has PDLS+ which implies it was built some time ago

I have a 3.8 981 cayman GT4, a 4.0 718 GTS Boxster and a 2.5 718 Cayman GTS. The 2.5 is my favourite all rounder. It’s a great car and gets by far the most use. People are very quick to dismiss the four pot engine, usually those that haven’t driven one.

I know, I had a 718 2.0 before my current 4.0 GTS! Bought it new in 2018 with some nice options, cost £50k.

Sinking £74k into one would be madness. Surely there must be scope for negotiation or it's still going to be in the showroom when the EV Cayman replacement is launched!
