#77 of 88 2012 911 pricing and discount
Jun 05, 2012 (9:33 pm)
How much would my dad be able to take off of a 2012 911 with a sticker price of $118K. The dealership in Los Angeles, CA, offered him a 5K discount, but I feel like that's very little, if I were buying any car, I'd get at least 10% off of the sticker price. That's about how much I got on my ML350 not long ago, but it did take some time and traveling.
Could someone familiar with 911 pricing voice in some comments, opinion, or suggestions regarding amount of discounts one get obtain?

If this is the redesigned 2012 991, I would consider this very good discount but if this is 997, then it is way too low. Back in September 2011, I was able to get a 7% discount on a custom order 997.
But if it is the brand new redesigned 991, don't expect too much. BTW, was your ML the new redesign or the older model.
#79 of 88 Price - 2013 911 Carrera (order)

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?
Oct 28, 2012 (12:33 pm)
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.
