People are idiots of they want to pay ADM in this economy. RS' can be had at msrp and GT3's under now. When the market corrects and economy dips, the car market will plummet.

What your not taking into account is that there are people in the US that consider $100,000-$200,000 chum change (I'm not one of them). Paying that much over MSRP is nothing to them. They'll get a car that will be worth more money in several years.
They'll happily pay it and the dealers know it.

if only 200 in NA, then I consider myself very lucky to get one at MSRP as I don't have a 918.

I guess 20+ years of Porsche loyalty means something

looked at it once and picked about $20K of options, mainly leather cosmetic stuffs

will revise it this weekend and then submit

I usually don't spend too much on options, but willing to with Speedster as likely this may be my last "real" sport car purchase

future cars will be "appliance" electric sedan or SUV etc

will pick Miami blue to match the other 3 blue 911s I have

Do you have an estimated delivery date? You're going to be the toast of Vancouver. I wonder how Whoopsy (Nick) would feel about that.

Whoopsy likes older Speedster. He doesn't care about this new one.

No delivery date. I have not submitted my code yet. No rush. I don't have time to drive it.

Correct. It’s truly amazing how many people don’t get this.

I think it could be a $400-$450k car. Speedster msrp came in at $50k-70k over my estimate so I think initially ADM is limited to around $100-$125k. Even at msrp it's beyond my comfort threshold but would probably stretch for a low optioned Speedster if my allocation comes through. A little bummed out that the horsepower and maybe the sound is artificially limited so that USA cars have no more output than EU models.

I'm speaking to a dealer about a .2 3RS currently. During that discussion the Speedster came up and he threw out a $200k ADM.

This dealer is asking for a 30K ADM on the 3RS with CPO. I told him thanks but no thanks.

It will be interesting to visit this thread in a year or so. When you say $100K is chump change to some, which is absolutely correct, what that really means is that they can afford to lose $100K for just the privilege of early access. Technically that’s a lack of (retained) value.

What *you're not taking into account is that when the next correction hits, these will not be worth “more” in several years. If several years in 10+, maybe. Notice any trends with pricing and inventory as of late? Wonder why all these high value cars are showing up in spades to the auctions?
