I can't believe they'd make such a mistake on a new car order, what being computerized and all, but when I showed up at my local dealer to pick up my new 981 this is what happened...

But I guess as long as the monthly payments are the same as a new 981 what do I care right? :)

Well...sometimes they leave out a sport button on a GT3 and sometimes they are dyslexic with a couple numbers. You win some, you lose some.:cheers:

The destination charge is nearly $3K? That astounds me as much as the total price.

Our local dealer just took delivery of their 918. It's sold and only 2 people at the dealership are permitted to get close to it. They said the sooner it leaves the better... each wheel costs $30K.

What did you expect from a dealer named "Aristocrat Motors?" A plebian 981? For that, you need to go to the "Ferrari Wannabe" dealer!

You got me confused for a while!

1) The title shocked me because I know you'll never buy any current 981 except the GT4, if and only if.
2) The price shocked me because how could Porsche make such a mistake with a 981.
3) But in the end when I saw the car picture, I got to laugh.

Who would order a 918 in black!!! It hides much of its stunning design.

Bank error in your favor. Please collect Spyder and proceed to the nearest utility.

I'm with Hassaan, I though how could they charge so much for the 981.... Nice one, I assume you left with the car before they realized?

it could be a great deal too, sell the 918, then with that money buy the 981 and a house. All for the price of a 981. =)

Forget the price, they messed up on the color too. How could they paint it black when you had to have ordered RY? Don't accept it.

Porsche makes mistakes on the Monroney frequently.
I believe they are printed in the US as the Monroney is US law.
My 981 was incorrectly priced as they left out the custom interior paint.
The Dealer would not give me the actual Monroney(I took a iPhone snap for posterity) and had a new one Fedexed to me overnight.-Richard
