Like I said, they're out there, you just really have to look continously for them.

This is the original thread. I was just going through the pictures in the registry when I found a red 93 GTS sitting in front of a Chambers Motorcars sign. It looks like they posted it before selling it.

They added it to the Registry meaning they most have known about the true present value of the GTS and still they advertised it for $23k which is close to the wholesale black value. No wonder the sale is pending with a friend of the dealer rather than an internet customer. This could be a good way for the dealer to pocket some tax free ching ching in their pocket. And its easily justifiable since they advertised the GTS on 2 separate sites. Am I wrong?

Here's the latest low down on this car. I'm probably stupid for haggling over $300 but it's a matter of principal to me which the sale guy doesn't have.

Whoever was buying the car for $23.5k couldn't come up with the financial so I made them the highest offer of $27k which is still pretty good to me. The final offer was $27,300 with opened trailer transportation from them. I decided to use enclosed transportation on my own and they refuse to contribute the $300 to the cost. I already put $3k in down payment to which I already talked my credit card company. So because of $300, the deal went south.

So the car is back for sale. They had seven other offers previously.

The car was traded in by a 65-year old man for an E350. The trade in value was no where near the $23.5k. They are making a killing even at this great price.

Hop on this now if you want the car.

I would not go anything above $23,500 based on principle.

Wholesale (or loan value) is $21k and trade in is $21,240.

Principle? On the 8th you said $23K was near the wholesale book value. I'm confused.

Wholesale values changes all the time, sometimes daily.

Yeah, right. Now you sound like me quoting interest rates to clients. We should both be ashamed.

Every now and then a nice 928 would show up at Zimbrick Porsche in Madison Wisconsin. Everytime they would keep it on the showroom. Not all dealerships are the same, last time I pulled up to Bergstrom Porsche in Appleton, Wisconsin - every sales guy game outside to check out my car. Sait it's been a while since they've seen a 928. Having one with headers & open pipes usually draws attention though.

Maybe the guy wasn't clued in but i was just told that it has been sold to an out of stater.

At least he knew enough to say it was in a class by itself.
