Those "Optional 21" Y-Spoke Alloy Wheels at an Additional Cost of £2,990" look awful in my opinion. What on earth are they thinking?

I recently part exchanged my highly option 718S for 718GT4. I am happy with my purchase and really enjoying it and it is another experience altogether but seriously missing my Cayman S. The Cayman S lasted less than 3 days on the dealer forecourt before it got another buyer whilst their other 718GTS 4.0 had not found any interested buyers. (2022 make, only 2000 miles on the odometer and one previous owner for £62,000.00 or so).

The cheapest 2022 718 4.0 on the Porsche website is £75k and the cheapest full-stop is £67k. Not sure where your 2022 £62k car is.

Fair enough, seems a reasonable price for a two year old, very lightly/poorly optioned car from a non Porsche dealer with a fetish for hideous after-market wheels. I'm sure they've had that for at least six months.

It's not representative of the bulk of the stock in the OPCs though.

Anyone buying would need a discount so they can replace the wheels.

If the dealer had any sense, they would make the change themselves. These wheels probably rule out 95% of the potential customers.

Dealer has the standard wheels, but wants £3k or thereabouts extra for those monstrosities,,,,,

Prices (including used) are RIDICULOUS in this country, not sure how they manage to survive with that. Probably still stuck in stone age with not much understanding of economies of scale.

They've just added a 2021 Macan GTS 17k, around 10% more expensive than a brand new similar spec on the configurator.

At the same time, when I approach them with a proper car - my Manual "Sports Exhaust" 981s Boxster, the money they offer me is laughable (15% less than webuyanycar...). So sounds like they want to make a 20-30% profit on any car they buy, ridiculous.

I have just traded in my Macan at OPC. They came within £1000 of WBAC so your experience is not universal. Guess it is down to supply and demand - demand for low mileage Macan, less for 981 ‘s
which let’s face it are now getting a bit old for OPC ‘s unless they are low mileage and in exceptional condition.

I think they're very popular in some places, albeit spinners more chrome and full privacy tints would win out

Just because something might be perceived old doesn't mean one should get their trousers pulled down. It's still one of their products and a proper sports car at that, which is what Porsche were originally known for. It's a sad state of affairs when Porsche are giving better values for and prioritising their Audi Q5's.

OPC are actually trying. A lot of other brand franchised dealers would not advertise or allow on their forecourts cars of certain age

7-10 year old boxsters not really what most of their customers are after though - and, as poster above discovered, their minimum margin (which must be 5K+) is too high a % age of a cheaper car.

it’s a close tie between those and the three spoke alloys that were once on a max power vauxhall carlton for worst wheels ever.

Which dealer? Wouldn't mind a Targa GTS if its the right colour
Friend of mine was offered a crayon one by Leeds, about £145k I think, but it was about 2 weeks ago so probably gone now. Cancelled order.

Completely anecdotal but I'm sitting in my OPC and there are so many cars outside I couldn't find a parking spot.

Currently ogling a nice 991.1 GT3. Sadly I'm not here to buy that


Adding, there must be over a dozen Taycans here. I thought the waiting list was enormous?
