Default Thoughts on this Voodoo Blue?

seems crazy expensive for a “demo” w 2k+ miles on it. Pretty lengthy option list tho, and of course the gorgeous PTS! Wonder how hard it’s been “demo’d”...

Hope it wasn't driven in the latest "polar vortex..." Love the paint and wheels! Love my '17 GTS I just got, but a month after I got it there was a mexico blue one for sale in CA that would have looked spectacular next to my mex blue spyder... oh well.

I've got the 21" turbo wheels and would love to trade anyone for the sport classics!!

Hell, shoot 'em an offer.

(Porsche of Colorado Springs had a really nice low mile demo GTS a while ago- heavily optioned even with ceramics! Just thought that was a little overkill on a Macan!!)

Whoa that’s a nice one for sure, I like the ‘uniqueness’ of it! Well optioned with a few things not often encountered. That price though, yeah, not so sure about that. At that price as a demo I’d probably want it to have PCCBs also. Kind of interesting it doesn’t have the 18-way sports seats or the carbon fiber interior trim package (especially with it having the CF door sills). Really nice overall though!

It is a cool color that you don't see very often. Their price is only an "asking" price. Don't be afraid to low ball them.

That's a rare and stunning color. My friend just got a 718 Cayman S, all blacked out, ceramic brakes and matching yellow seat belts to the brake calipers. Looks Amazing in person and super rare.

Just submitted an inquiry to get the conversation going. mid-high 80s feels like the right ballpark for this?

Sounds good to me, let us know how this plays out! That's a fabulous Macan.

Awesome color. I wouldn't pay anywhere near that asking price for a style over substance configuration as it's got a ton of visual options (including some that don't make sense such as deleting the embroidered GTS loges from the head rests and paying for the Porsche logo embossing) but not much of the useful options (no 18 way seats, PTV+, surround view cameras, Burmester audio, etc.). Mid 80's would be a fair price for this.

Showed wifey pics (it would be a shared car between us, she hauls kids around in the minivan and I daily drive the 911) - she isn't sold on the Voodoo Blue. So other than email exchange (was dealer's personal car, babied blah blah blah) didn't want to get into price with them unless she is sold on it. Not really in any rush, may just wait until the new '19 GTS is out and spec one out to our liking and do ED with the fam. At that price point i have to imagine it's going to be sitting for a while (but then again, who knows - porsche buyers are known to do crazy things!)

What motivation would a dealer have to "baby" a car like this? LOL!

How do you check all those boxes, go with Voodoo frickin Blue and then not do the side stripe in body color? No offense to others, but I personally can't stand those black side stripes. I think all GTS at least should have them painted in body color.
