Goes back to a point I made on another thread....Lazy is Shady! Some are claiming that its just the dealer being lazy and not removing customer ordered cars that are sold ( that's what you see ) IMO this is a bait and switch tactic used to drive website hits and phone traffic. Just as you did you posted the name of the dealer based on misinformation. Nothing wrong with this practice as long as you are not the person on the other end having your hopes raised just to find out the cars are not available.I just checked the website of Hennesey Porsche in Atlanta and it is showing three GT4s available from $98K to $113K. Is this possible --- I thought that all of the production for the U.S. was already sold out.
Listing something for sale that is already sold.My opinion but I don't see any evil intent here from Hennesey Porsche
I found my Cayman on the website also and the SA explained that the Porsche Dealer website is controlled by Porsche USA rather than the actual dealer. When I found my Cayman I had already taken delivery. Since these GT4s haven't been produced yet, it is strange that they are even shown on the Porsche Dealer website.
Agreed! I am not positive, but I believe the same is true here...Listing something for sale that is already sold.
Evil - maybe not
Ethical - probably not
Illegal - would be were I live!
We have a "bait and switch" rule. You cant even advertise if you have low quantity unless you make that clear. Listing individual cars that are not for sale is the ultimate bait and switch - there is 0 supply and they know it.
From my understanding, which mirrors what Holy Grail said above, the dealer can choose whether to make those cars visible to the general public or not. This is lazy at best, shady at worst. I would not be happy to see my car showing up as available to the general public.
