Sorry to hear.

If I am reading correctly, they have been holding $100k of your money for over a year? Wow.

I assume they never gave you anything in writing...?

This is an easy one ****, but not pleasant.

Any good attorney will remedy your situation in court and very likely prevail unless you signed something that said you will pay over MSRP when you made your good faith agreement. Its unfortunate that they will loose their money, their time, their reputation, and attorney's fees.

I don't recall ever learning the exception to "always do the right thing" *unless there is a lot of money involved.

Say nothing else on line.

Wow man what a crap situation!
Get em! Legally, publicly and everything in between.
If I was ever thinking of doing business with Porsche MAIN LINE, which I was at one point, it is out of the question now. That's straight extortion.
By the way bro next time charge them interest or something for the 100K. Jeez.

Going from MSRP to +$250,000 with a "congrats" thrown in, wow, what a bag of dicks.

Holy crap. This is the epitome of greed. Horrible story. I wish you the best of luck with a good outcome. As stories like this get out, I truly hope others take notice and move business to reputable dealers. It would be one thing if you walked in off street and they shot you that quote; but to have an agreement and your cash, thrn completely ream your a-hole is just shocking.

More and more dealers are doing this as they can get away with it. Porsche of arlington did it to me with a gt3rs and I had a signed buyers order. PCNA didn't car, Rosenthal corporate(who owns porsche of arlington) didn't care and suggested I buy cars from other dealers... F them all. I personally am done putting my name and deposits on lists or even caring about ordering a new porsche. I'll stick to my f12 for now and may look at Mclaren's

I have also dealt with this dealer and found them to be fabulous. I would suggest you speak to the GM or Mr DiStanislao, I think you will get a different answer.

I am really sorry to hear about your experience. But I can't say I'm surprised after my conversation with the manager at a Porsche dealer in the northeast after seeing this ad on their website:




Available to the public! Anyone can go buy it today! How much do they want? They want you to sign a second *contract* that promises you will pay them whatever over MSRP the cars are trading for "on the second hand market" at the time of delivery. I had to ask the manager to repeat this with examples 3 times, as I was in disbelief. So if a car REPORTEDLY sells for $850,000 anywhere in the world, you owe them an additional half million dollars for your brand new car.

I can't even imagine this is legal. This is not a stock; there is no agreed market value. How can they ask you to sign a contract like that? I am sure others here have come across this dealership.

I honestly have half a mind to report these people to PCNA.

Might as well say which dealer it is...
