210,409Did they give you a selling price or CAP cost?

How about the residual percentage or dollar amount?

How much is due at signing?

Does that include tax? If so, what is your state and tax rate?

Edmunds Moderator7selling price: $71,420

fees: $256

tax (6% PA): $4,285.20

net sale price: $75,961.20

residual %: n/a (will ask)

Tax already included in the monthly payment and it's $1,080.34 due at signing.

210,409PA taxes the monthly payment, and it's 3% higher than your local rate (so, 9%)

Let's assume the fee total is $1300, including the ones you listed and the acquisition fee.

$71420+$1300 = $72,720 adjusted CAP.

Your pretax payment is $991.14 (+9% tax)

At 59% residual, I get $985/mo.+tax

At 58% residual, I get $1005/mo.+tax

If my estimated adjusted CAP was correct (of course, it isn't, it's estimated), then the numbers would match up exactly with one of those residual percentages.

Of course, if the residual is a lot higher than that, then they are padding the payment, somewhere.

Edmunds Moderator7let's assume that your estimate (59% residual, $985/mo.+tax) is correct. Is this a good deal? i am not sure if 8% discount is good enough for this model as they will introduce the all new Cayenne by the end of this year. what about the money factor? is it something that can I negotiate or not? However, I will contact the dealer and ask for more details on the tax and fees.

thank you.

Can anyone tell me if this a good deal for 2017 Cayenne platinum edition?

thank you in advance.

210,409To get that residual with 63%, the MSRP would have to be $74,200.

If their MSRP, CAP cost and residual percentage were correct, the payment would be about $975, including 9% tax.

So, we can't check their numbers, if the basic variables they give you are incorrect.

One thing to check. On a new car, the residual is always an exact full percentage of the MSRP. No fractions.

Possibilities? Maybe one or more of these:

1) The residual isn't 63% (though I think it might be)

2) $77,630 is not the actual MSRP (substituted a different vehicle?)

3) You aren't getting 8% off

4) Maybe a demo model with extra mileage? (lowering the residual)

Ask them to reconcile that residual amount with the MSRP and residual percentage. That math is as simple as it gets, and is at the root of why their payment is far off.

Edmunds Moderator7"The residual is 63% of MSRP in most leases. Because Porsche has such a vast array of options, Porsche limits the residualized MSRP of their leases. This is called MRM (Maximum Residualized MSRP).

In the case of the Cayenne Platinum, the maximum allowed MSRP to be residualized is $74200 (This is a number Porsche generates. We have no say in the figure). Porsche’s residual calculation is $46746 at the end of this lease."

So, if what they explain is true, do you still think that it's a good deal or not?

7210,409Man... I'd want a model that didn't sticker for more than $74,200!

Anyway, using these numbers--

$77630 MSRP

$72415 CAP

$46746 residual (I substituted 60.217% to get to that number)

$951.34/mo.+tax

$1036.96 total.

$43/mo. off their quote.

Now, they can explain where the other $1500 is coming from. lol

I'll guess doc/dmv fees, etc, etc.. are they charging you for that maintenance plan?

Really, the only explanation left is that $72,415 isn't really the adjusted CAP cost. That there is something else added in there.
