    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    For a 2018 model, you should be thinking around 15% off. Maybe a little more if the dealer has many 2019 models on the lot. The 2020s will be coming soon.

    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    I was offered 16% off a new 2018 Boxster recently. I wouldn’t buy for anything less than 20% off at this point.

    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    I can add my data point...
    In the fall of 2009, at the height of the stock and housing recession, there were still year 2008 987.1 Porsche Cayman S models sitting on dealer lots. The 2009 987.2 had already been out for a year and the 2010 was probably just about out too. The 2009 got the upgraded direct-inject engine, a very mild external face lift, and an interior upgrade. So, with all of that, it seems that occasionally a dealer would offer a brand new 2008 (possibly with warranty already rolling) for $48k. It didn't really seem to matter what level of equipment the cars had, but the lowest price on the S was always $48k. Anyway, I picked mine up for $48k. Sticker was $66k. My brother-in-law got his for $48k and sticker was $65k. There were no 2008 ones on offer anywhere in California (I guess dealers here were able to sell them already); mine came from Michigan on a flatbed (another $1400). I should note also that I never saw an automatic for sale this way. Automatics would have been a very tough sell, as the 2009 had the PDK instead of the conventional torque-converter setup of 2008.

    Porsche is not going back to six cylinders for the Cayman Base, S, or GTS. The emission regs won't allow it. You're more likely to see a full electric Cayman sooner rather than later.

    Sounds similar to the current heavy discount Chevy is offering on the outgoing C7...both are damn nice bargains...20% off list means you have very little depreciation to absorb for a bit.

    Well, we know there will be six-cylinder Boxsters. See https://www.carscoops.com/2019/05/porsche-to-offer-6-cylinder-touring-versions-of-718-boxster-and-cayman/. The issue isn't whether six-cylinder Boxsters are coming; the issue is where they will positioned in the line up and how expensive they will be.

    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    I believe that many outlets besides Carscoops have said that a six cylinder Cayman/Boxster is coming and I tend to believe that Porsche will introduce something in that segment, not for enthusiast but for profitability. Certainly, there is motive, not a need, to produce the car. They will sell because, to many, Porsche means 6 cylinder. The exhaust sound will be better, the performance gain probably negligible.

    Im my opinion, Porsche has to slot this in above the current 718 GTS so the starting price will have to be above the current $80K that the GTS commands. I do believe that $90K MSRP sounds like a reasonable (?) starting point for the 6 cylinder model. That should slot it in slightly below the yet to be announced 992 Carrera. Remember the 992CS starts at @113K. It's a pretty narrow slot in the current lineup.

    It should be interesting to see how Porsche markets the car and how th market reacts.

    The problem is that most of the outlets parrot each others prognostications without any real evidence (like confirmation from Porsche).

    Where there is smoke there is often fire and they may very well produce another 6 cylinder Box/Cay. I will believe it when I hear it from the only source that really matters.

    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    I think of the 718 Boxster/Cayman 6 the same way many of us have thought of the mid engine Corvette for all these years. It's out there. We've all seen pics of it. We've seen videos of them flying around the Ring. But Porsche isn't going to announce them until they are ready. And that will likely be well after the Spyder/GT4.

    Exactly. No one from Porsche has said anything that I have seen other than they are working on "something special" or words to that effect. Could be an NA flat six, or could be something else entirely. The internet, and certainly no online car rag, has any real data.

    Yep, we've seen the videos. And the few that have audio sound to my ears (and others) like turbo fours. Curiously, many of the videos have NO sound. For the past 16 months we've all been saying "we will know soon enough." And all we get is silence from Porsche.

    Definitely hard to tell based on the videos. And the GPF compounds the issue. I'm going to hedge my bet by hoping for NA but not put myself in the no way is it a turbo camp.

    I'd be OK with a turbo if it were as good as the twin turbo 3.0 in the 991.2 Carrera/T. But the 2.0 and 2.5 in the Boxster/Cayman are nowhere near that level. Maybe Porsche can get them there.

    Haha...yeah you are right. The car with the turbo four isn't balanced properly, steers terribly, has no acceleration and overall just bad performance. LMAO at you hyperbole and ignorance. But hey, don't let that stop you from polluting the internet with your assertions.

    The 2.0/2.5 turbos as standalone engines aren't on the same level as the turbo 3.0 engine.

    I own a 991.2 (and a 981 GTS) and have spent extensive time in a 718 Boxster S, 718 Cayman S, and 718 Cayman GTS. The Boxster S on the road. The Cayman S on the track. The Cayman GTS modified autocross on a track. The 2.5 turbo does not have the responsiveness of the 3.0 turbo. And, as far as turbo engines go, the 3.0 sounds better than the 2.5 (though neither match the old or current NA models). No ignorance there; just experience.

    The 718s *as a whole* are, for my money, the best cars money can buy under $100K. If my 981 GTS died today I'd be driving a 718 GTS tomorrow.

    The hyperbole (and poor attitude) is yours.

    Lighten up, I didn't see anything before this post where he said the 718 or 718 turbos were awful, he just expressed an opinion that Porsche is holding them back from being as good as the 3.0L twin turbos in the 911, which for anyone who knows Porsche's history, that has always been the case with the Cayman and Boxster, Porsche is NEVER going to give them ALL the goodies the 911 gets, just isn't going to happen. The author goes on to point out in a subsequent post his experience with the 718's and other Porsches. Remember no name calling, no attacking people, but feel free to disagree with opinions but do it in a civil manner. Thanks for your attention to this.

    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    I was looking at the 2018 inventory within a 500 mile radius of me and its frustrating how the cars are spec'd. Practically none of them have the options I'd want. So I would have to order new anyway. Even the ones over $100k still don't have LED headlights, full leather, SC, or SPASM. Its always one or the other.

    I feel your pain. I opted for a 981 GTS after the 718 already went into production. Took me 9 months to find the right car.
