#79 of 88 Price - 2013 911 Carrera (order)
Sep 17, 2012 (5:59 pm)
I started with Costco and was given the name of a dealer in Silver Spring, MD. With an MSRP of 95,590 for an order, the sales rep gave me a discounted price of 93,800. Wow - not even a 2% discount! When Costco contacted me regarding my experience, I told them it wasn't worth my time.
I am now working with a dealer in Charlottesville, VA. Should I expect a 7% discount or higher? Thanks!

I am seeing significant discounts right now and 7-8% should definitely be doable.

Thank you for responding so quickly. Today the dealership in Charlottesville, VA quoted me a 5% discount, much better than 2% from the Silver Spring, MD dealer. I'll keep at it!

#84 of 88 991 Manual or PDK transmission?

I am planing to order my first 991 and I am between going with a Base 991 7 speed manual transmission or a PDK transmission.
I test drove both and felt that the clutch pedal is pretty hard and was wondering how does it fell on every day driving. I appreciate if anyone can share your opinions.

I was really torn but decided to go with the manual. I must say i was disappointed at first because the clutch was so stiff. After about 10,000 miles, it opened up and now it's a lot easier. I think by 15,000 miles, i will be fine.
It's such a personal decision. You should trust your gut. In retrospect, i would prefer the PDK because i live in the city and sometimes, i get tired of shifting but i have to admit, I'm really starting to enjoy the shifting. Keep test driving but the problem is that you will have a whole different car after 10,000 miles.

Thank you guys. I decided to go with the PDK, yes it's going to cost me more but I don't want to worry about when my wife drives the car. Not to mention that with 7 speed manual I am afraid I will have to speed more than I should just to make use of the 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7th gears

Hi, all ...
I am considering buying a 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S. It has 77k miles, and is all stock. The seller is asking $28,900.
Any thoughts, pros, cons and other feedback regarding this particular model would be greatly appreciated.
