New Porsche Pricing
 
Never thought I would open this can of worms but here goes. I know nothing about Porsches, questions follow. Please advise on other questions to ask.
How firm are new Porsche prices? Is it a mistake to own one out of warranty? Are parts and maintenance stupid expensive? Will they last as long as modern common vehicles?
Thoughts are a base Panamera 4 Sport Turismo. The self adjusting LED headlight system and infrared night vision are intriguing, anyone have experience with these options?
The website mentions a New Panamera but very little information on it.
Thanks

You need to remove the front bumper and headlights to change the air filter......

Need I say more?

Does that model remind anybody of a sportscar station wagon?

Screams station wagon to me.

Much better looking models of Porsche out there.

No, you don't.
I wonder if this bizarre engineering fail has been addressed on the New Panamera.

Understood, I'm not inspired by the look either. When I spoke with the salesman after giving him my priorities he recommended the Panamera knowing my thoughts on it's looks.
I recently rediscovered my love of high milage days. The long wheelbase of the Panamera will yield a much less choppy ride than the sporty, attractive models.
We also have two large, hairy family members that love to go with us hence the station wagon.

Nicks pretty cool . Here's what thought process he went thru buying his 911 . Maybe it will help . I would think they'd be a lot of wiggle in a Pamamera .

Just for kicks

That was great! Thanks.

One of the more reliable cars you can buy even out of Warranty, its not like your typical German manufactures.

Happy Nick and I could help . I must had been crossed eyed looking for that video for 10 minutes when it was right in front of me thinking I'm doing this for nothing . Glad it wasn't for nothing :thumbsup:

stupid to own out of warranty -yes The problem is the a Porsche doesn't have all of those nigglies that break alot, so you don't go to the dealer very much....but don't know about Panamericas or similar. My porsche mechanic is close by and wears hand-me-downs, because he doesn't make enough money to but new ;)

awesome and fun to drive -yes yes

My cardiologist has an older Ferrari Tesstarossa, a late model Lamborghini and a bunch of thoroughbred cars. It takes the Ferrari dealership a week removing the rear end of the Ferrari just to adjust the valves every year.

And his every day driver is a Porsche 911. It's about the only supercar that actually durable and roadworthy every day. And it's the only ultra high performance car that has an engine that will last 550,000 miles if properly maintained. And they're worth every cent of what they cost.

Think they cost too much? Get a new mid engine Corvette.

I call bullshit that there is a late model Porsche anywhere with 550,000 on original engine.

Buy a special package and trade in every year. Looks like the best way to buy a Porsche, they go for stupid money second hand for some reason.

I looked long and hard at a used one for my toy car, 1-2 year old models were more than new on the kind of cars I was looking at.

Ooh! Now that is my kind of thinking. Upgrade to a better handling car with 30+ mph on top of the base car for similar money. Now I have to look at insurance rates.

Porsche out of warranty? Not to bad. Not as bad as others.

BMW out of warranty? Hell no. Includes everything everything they have had their hands in. Mini and RR.

Land Rover/Jaguar? Hell no in or out of warranty.

Yes, parts and service are expensive at the dealer. Find a good independent mechanic and enjoy the best cars money can buy. Have had 4 of them over the past year or two.

I usually buy them CPO and get 6 year, unlimited mile Porsche factory warranty. It’s good for piece of mind and resale.
