"Relationships" are nice to have; but, realistically, in a business transaction, a distant second place. IMO

One of the ways to convince a dealer he has the wrong price on the car you want is to tell him other Porsche dealers are selling the same car for sticker. (If you're negotiating for sticker)....

Odd that dealers claiming to sell at MSRP don't have cars to sell. While dealers selling with ADM do have cars to sell.

Something seems wrong with that picture. Probably just my cynicism showing...

That's not correct.

I know of dealers who will order a car for you (V070 demand order) and will sell you the car at MSRP if they assign an allocation to you.

That "if" part is, in a manner of...

No.

You are through step 1, i.e., the dealer has committed an allocation to you.

Now, step 2, the hard part. Wait for it!..... the price. The dealer has to commit to you on a price.

Another dealer who can't fire sale his own cars?

Sounds like you got his final price.

Did you offer a no trade, cash only deal? I'm not saying it would have done you any good; but, trade deals, sometimes, are not that welcomed by the dealer.

No, it's not normal.

Obviously, the sales manager feels empowered to set himself up on a high moral perch from where he can judge the fitness of his GT customers. And kissing his ### may be part...

I do not believe dealers know how many GT cars are planned for production. Nor do I think they need to know. Their job is, simply, to sell cars. And that's tough enough.

As far as planned numbers...
