Porsche 911 Lease Questions

    Does anyone have any more information on this $1,000 prepaid MasterCard incentive? I can only find it listed on aol autos here: ncentives/

    No dealer has mentioned it yet, and I haven't heard any confirmation from anyone receiving it. Worth the shot if it is still good.

    Hey guys, thanks for all the help. Put down a deposit on a 2013 C2 coupe thanks to the advice from here. MSRP 100,640, discount 8% + conquest (only $1,352) with $5k down in cash/trade equity covering fees and first mo. payment. Came out to $764/mo before tax ($817 for us Floridians). This is the 24mo lease with 7,500 miles using 78% (PDK rate) and .00200 MF.

    Car is Dark Blue with Grey interior and has Prem. Plus pkg, Bose pkg, multi fxn steering wheel, PDK, 14-way sport seats, PDLS, and SportTechno wheels..

    Nice work - enjoy the ride (same color as my one - love it!)!

    Good to see you managed to work it all out for what you wanted.

    Have fun - puts a smile on my face every day :)

    Hi Carman,

    I'm looking at leasing a used 2012 911S cab that was originally sold in january 2012. I'm trying to figure out if the residual should be based on when the car was originally sold (which based on what I've read here for January 2012 would've been around 59% for a 36 mo 10k lease or 52% for a 48 mo 10k lease) or should it be based on something different related to the current date.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi there, I am looking at getting a 2 year, 12,000 mile lease. From what I have read, the rates are as follows:

    MF: 0.002
    C2 with PDK Residual: 78%
    C2S with PDK Residual: 73%

    Also, my local dealer will not discount off MSRP for a 2013, has anybody got any experience or recommendations on buying out of state?

    Hi Ron912,

    I found that Daniel Lee with Park Place Porsche in Dallas was very agressive. Their customer service was awesome. I bought a 2013 Red C2 ($103,840 sticker) for $94,900 with conquest cash (7 series lease gave me $3228 off w conquest). They gave me the .002 mf and my residual was 75% for 27 months with 10k per year. I paid first month and $200 in fees down and ended up at $1010/mo before AZ sales tax of 8.95%. They arranged the shipping of my vehicle to my home in Scottsdale. Tell him Ryan from Scottsdale sent you. He's a nice guy. Good luck.

    Not negotiating off of sticker is ridiculous, I wouldn't even get your oil changed there once you get one from somewhere else. As I mentioned before I got 8% off msrp without having to negotiate, another dealership said 6% off before we even walked in the door. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

    Agreed... ANY dealer should/can give you 5% off right off the bat. Even here in SoCal dealers are willing to work on price and most I have spoken with are very fair.

    I was about to lease a 911, but then had some things come up that have postponed my purchase. Was getting a great deal, but I think that the current lease program expired 7/1. Anybody know if the 911 lease described above is still valid?

    I got 8.5% off plus an additional $2,400 off on an approx. 123.5k C2S on a lease the last day of June. MF was 0.002. The 27-mo residual resulted in about a $25/month lower payment than the 24-mo residual in my case. Did not have to bargain hard and did everything on the phone from a different state and everything went pretty smoothly. I can't say I got a killer deal, but got a pretty decent deal on a car that was very close to what I wanted options-wise.
  • dalemadalema Posts: 60
    Nice work - and sounds like a nice car! What did you option on it?

    I was going to do the 27 month but the SA convinced me not to due to paying the 3rd year registration. It does work out to the best lease payment though.

    Anyone knowmif porsche continued through with the same residuals, MF and lease conquest post June 30?

    Thanks! True about the third year registration but in my state it's only $80. Here is what my car has:

    Agate Grey
    PASM Sport Suspension
    Window trim high gloss Alum
    Porsche Dynamic Light System
    ParkAssist (rear)
    Sport Chrono Package
    Sunroof in glass
    Sport Design steering wheel
    Two-tone leather interior (Agate Grey/Pebble Grey)
    Model designation on doors
    Power Sport Seats (14-way)
    BOSE Audio Package
    Premium Package Plus
    Online Services
    Clear glass tail lights
    Ornamental Porsche Crest

    The two cosmetic options that I like the most are the clear taillights and the two-tone interior. The clear taillights go really well with Agate Grey. The dealer also had a white with clear taillights but I was not very sure how well they went with white. I do like the car a lot and have already put 800 miles on it in three days :) .

    On June 30, I signed a 27 month lease for a 2013 C4S. During the negotiation, I checked with different dealers in various states and was quoted varying residual values for the same equipment. It was my understanding that residual is set by PFS and that no dealership has the ability to change them. Does anyone know 1) whether this is true 2) if PFS sets different residuals for different regions (e.g. Is the 27 month residual in Texas different than California) and 3) can someone post the residual table (if anyone has it) applicable on 6/30/13.

    At my insistence, the leasing manager showed me a printout of "PFS Program 991420" but refused to give me a copy or let me take a photo claiming that it was proprietary. Assuming what they showed me was valid and given the many numbers on the page and dealership's reluctance to show them, my eyes focused on what was relevant to my lease deal for 27 months: 68% for 12K, 71% for 10K and 72% for 7.5K. However, I noticed some earlier posts in this forum referencing higher residuals for same term and higher mileage. Can anyone clarify?
  • kapkanimdkapkanimd Posts: 126
    I have never heard of anyone changing residuals, but I guess anything is possible. They are set by PFS and as long as you are confident you know what you are doing they will usually fold and admit the real numbers. As far as earlier residual numbers, they can change every month. Just need someone to confirm what they are for July, but in general you cannot assume they are the same as last month
  • speedwellspeedwell Posts: 6
    Thanks for this. The story of my car actually just begins with the speculation about residuals. However, I thought it would be too much to include everything in one post.

    Does anyone know what should happen if the dealership agrees to terms with one residual and then claims that they misquoted the residual (even though it had been mutually agreed to multiple times in a long string of emails). This happened to me after an epic and oftentimes tense negotiation. Crazy but true story...

    I started the process toward the end of last month, at which time the dealership wanted to sell me a car but kept nickel and diming me on terms - first the negotiated price and then the MF. Even after I had sent them my best and final, they countered at which point I had enough. I emailed the salesperson the morning of 6/28 (Friday), writing that my terms were final and if they didn't agree by 5pm, I would pursue my Plan B (a Mercedes at an unaffiliated dealership). They conceded and the mutually agreed upon terms were 7.5% off MSRP, .0020 MF, 72% residual for 27 month lease @10000 miles/year.

    The day before I was scheduled to pick up the car, I received a call from the salesperson informing me that he had made a mistake and the 27 month residual for 10K/year was actually 71% not 72% and that they could still offer me the car but for 7500 miles/year instead of 10000. While a mistake like this is always possible, it seemed all to convenient for it to happen now given the tension during our negotiation. I expressed my displeasure to the salesperson and offered to "think about it" then hung up and immediately called PFS customer service only to be told that although my lease application had been processed and approved they did not have a record for me in their system yet (so they couldn't talk to me about anything). After trying several different lines of questioning, I was finally told even if they did have me set up in the system they still couldn't discuss residual with me since "the dealership was their customer and any information I wanted needed to be obtained from them". When I mentioned that a dealership that they had authorized to negotiate on their behalf could possibly be making a mistake that they might have to honor given the authority PFS had bestowed - they didn't seem to care and I was told that PFS gives dealerships the exclusive right to communicate residual terms.

    Less than thrilled with the circumstances, I went to the dealership the following day and signed the lease agreement including the following language handwritten on the lease form "Buyer's agreement predicated on prior mutual acceptance of different residual value for vehicle at end of lease term". When I handed it back to the lease manager, she told me that PFS would not accept it that way but if we executed a clean lease she was certain that PFS would hear me out. I chuckled and told her that the day before PFS had insisted to me that only the dealership could have that conversation with me and she was now saying the opposite. Against my better judgment, I signed the lease anyway knowing that I had a series of emails from the dealership proving my claim.

    I have the car and love it :D so giving it back wouldn't be my first choice. I've also checked with the State Attorney General's Office and was told that once dealership has "given the financial details of an agreement, under the Bushing Law they cannot change the terms" but the person I spoke with was unclear on whether an emailed term sheet qualified as a valid agreement and advised me to call back during normal business hours to speak with an attorney. Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions about the legality of what the dealer did and what might be a fair resolution?

    Does anyone know why the Payment Estimator function on the Porsche configuration site has been "unavailable" for several days, while the Build Your Porsche function is still operational? Thanks,

    I just asked my dealer for some numbers today, but unfortunately, not on the C4S. 2014 C4 2 years 10K 73% residual mf .0026. The C2s residual is 75% for the same period. Both are with PDK.

    My expectation would be to negotiate a 5% discount, although that will be harder until the 2013's are gone.

    I have heard nothing about any extra money on the 2013's or 2014's.

    If you consider a 2013, the C2 has a whopping 77% residual. The C4 residual is 73% and interestingly enough the C2S is 71%..

    Given the few (if any) changes in the 2014, the best deal (24 mos) is the base C2. If you want a CS2, you will save money getting a 2014.

    I'm sure they made a mistake somewhere, but that's what the manager told me.

    I thought all porsches had the same finance charge, currently .0026, but I just saw a post in the panamera section with a mf of .0016 on a three year lease. Lots of mysteries.

    Hopefully carman will clarify, if I was given bad info.

    Where is that CarMan?

    The Porsche Lease rates have gotten really hard to come by. I've been looking everywhere, can't find them...
  • jy22jy22 Posts: 1
    Agree. Been searching high and low. The 2013's are still around but less and less so.

    Still getting great 8-10% off MSRP but the MF - can't get below 0.00225. It seems the 0.00200 is hard to get now although we had seen them around according to the discussions here. The 0.00200 is still the base MF so perhaps the dealers are getting more resistant!
  • mp1512mp1512 Posts: 10
    Motor trend still shows the money factor at 200.

    They have all the information posted for the 13's.

    i just don't know if these residuals are for 10K, 12K, or 15K. Do you?
  • fq1fq1 Posts: 56

    These are 15k mile residuals. Right now the sweet spot is the 27-month residual, which is 69% for 15k miles (for the PDK) and results in a payment about $25-30 lower than the 24-month.

    This is one of the best times to lease a 911 with high residuals and pretty good discounts available. You can lease a 110-120k C2S for about 1300-1400/month with nothing down other than first month, title and registration fees (with most states's tax included). A C2 is an even better deal as long as you can live with the lower power.

    Thanks. Still happy with yours? Trying to decide if I can give up my M5.
