I got my 05 C at Stevens Creek Porsche, dealt with them over the internet first and then went for a test drive, drove several cars, they seem eager to help. I cannot benchmark them against others as I only worked with Stevens Creek. Starting your position dealing with invoice plus seemed to work OK.
#32 of 643 05 Cay invoice price
Nov 11, 2004 (9:55 am)
I am in the market for v6. I see some of the postings say $X over invoice for 05 model. Could you share with me where you get the invoice info? I went to many sites include Edmund but could not find 05 invoice.

I had the same issue, I ended up asking the dealer for the invoice of the car I was interested in, and then used the 2004 prices to ensure I wasn't being misled, the option prices seem pretty much the same and, as the MSRP had gone up $1100 or so, I assumed that invoice was about 85% of that increase so added it on to the 2004 invoice price, you may not be exact but you can be pretty close, the info I got from the dealer appeared accurate.

in late september you guys were very helpful while i was comparing the cay, fx45 & x5. decision was cay; by more than a nose.
had an opportunity to snag a good deal on a p supported cay but missed it by a couple hours. now another opportunity has come up - a new 04 s non metallic blue (dark sea blue) and grey (slate) interior. trbo look whls & crests, nav, elec pkg, entry & drive, cd chgr, bi-xens, moonroof. 54.5 sell. a bit more than 10k under 04 list. your thoughts are appreciated.
this deal goes in the paper tomorrow so is it worth it to snag this particular one or wait for a better deal or an '05.
thx in advance!
#35 of 643 bought 05 S

Just bought an 05 S, Titanium/Stone Gray. I paid 9% below MSRP but vehicle was loaded with stuff like carbon fiber wheel and gear shifter. Car equipped with convenience package, 19" wheels and I sprung for the SportDesign/Sport Exhause package. Looks great but stupidly expensive.

If the options are to your agreement (I like them all), don't miss the 10Koff. On the 2005, it will not be this substantial and you always have the issue if the vehicle on the lot is optioned to your preferences or not.
One thing I know is that this is one vehicle you are likely to keep for long and if the thought is around the Trade in value etc.. I will prefer to take the immediate discount vs. buying 2005 at a higher price.
Good luck and let us know what happened...
#37 of 643 04 Cayenne s
Nov 24, 2004 (6:17 am)
Just picked up my 04 S. I absolutely love it. Fairly well equiped plus the adjustable suspension. This was a must for me. I really like the flexibility. Car listed for 63 and change. I paid invoice which was about 55. I am very happy and learning about the capabilities of this great machine.
One thing head lights leak. There is a recall and will be fixed right away.
#38 of 643 Just Want a Simple V6
Nov 27, 2004 (6:18 pm)
I'm a tax law Section 179 buyer and things are getting right down to the wire (i.e., 1 Jan 05). I've been looking for a V6 in a decent color with some simple, commonsense options (maybe , Tiptronic, zenons, heated seats, not much else). The New England dealers seem to take their revenge on Porche for even having an entry level V6 Cay by loading them up with IMHO crazy options (e.g., "soft" look leather so it looks like a prom couple spent the night in your car; surround sound for $1800 to better listen to talk radio-how many Porche owners listen to rap?; NAV to find your way home from the dock, etc.)
Is the hot tip simply to call all the big-allocation dealers in FL, strike a deal and get it shipped up for $700? (I assume that the big-allocation dealers, even the self described "worlds biggest Porche dealer", have some basic Cays in stock?). Or are the warranty/service issues going to make this not a good idea.
Please advise before my wife says, not without justification, to stop this nonsense and just buy a Denali with 6 liters of cast iron American V8, ready to run out to 150K with just $19.95 oil changes (what is an oil change on a Cay? $150?), a severe duty (x-large convertor/huge fluid capacity) automatic, and parts available at every NAPA. After a while the world of Porche and its dealer body can become a pain. Must be from having to practice saying "Por-Sha" all day long.

I agree with sviniak. It seems like you have some pretty good package. I like the grey interior,,,,mine is savannah beige...which gets dirtier (visibly) easier...
I like the navigation, but the 05 has the DVD based nav...the 04 is still the CD based nav. I have no problems with my Cd based one....I don't have entry and drive, and no changer either. So it seems like a good package....
The turbo wheels are easier to wipe clean, compared to the other one, which I have. I wish I stayed with the turbo ones... sigh...
