Usually on order, most dealers won't mark up.

What burns me is when they get an ordered vehicle, the customer decides not to take it, and then the dealer marks it up exorbitantly.

I saw this with the Ford Maverick, a ~$20k hybrid truck that dealers were marking up $10k... 50%!!!

how about 100% markup (florida)!

Anyone that pays any kind of mark-up like that is a complete moron.  Next year we will be awash of new cars and people will be able to buy new cars under MSRP just like before Covid.

EU is considering banning new combustion engine vehicles in 2035.
I think it will be lucrative business to collect gas powered sports cars like Ferrari, Porsche…

That'll be fun to watch as their electric bills are crazy high due to the war and because their utility providers aren't regulated like the ones we have here in the US.  But yes, I'm keep my ICE powered GT cars as everything goes EV in the next 15-20 years.

I was lucky enough to find a Taycan GTS allocation for MSRP from someone who needed to cancel the purchase so I put my deposit down with the dealer.  Should have the car around October via delivery at PEC LA.  :D

USC sort of knows the bennies of EVs... I think he's owned a Prius at one time.

Now he gets the best of both worlds... his beloved Porsche in EV format.

I don't mind having a daily that's an EV but there will always be 1+ fun ICE powered cars in my garage.

The Prius was a plug-in so kinda got a little taste.  The car I really want as an EV is the Macan which will be out in 2025/2026.  The Taycan is a stop gap until I can get the new EV Macan.

I pick up my new Model 3 Performance this Sunday (great Father’s Day event) - super car performance for $64K. I think Tesla has locked up the supply chain so good luck to Porsche getting allocations of silicon devices and battery materials with their paltry volumes. It might be a lot longer than Oct, and like Jaguar I can see them losing so much trying to compete with lesser software/silicon/battery technology those cars will be like VW Phaetons in a few years.

The only ICE car that will sustain long term value is Ferrari as they are sought out exactly for their sound. People buy 911s because they’re wicked fast, handle like a dream and are extremely high quality, but they’re not as exclusive as F and will be a casualty of the EV transition - not enough volume. The Japanese will survive and may end up the big winners after Tesla.

I've made money off selling all of my GT3 and GT3RS Porsche.  One appreciated $80k more than I paid for it in 2013 when I sold it in 2018.  The only 2 Ferrari cars that I would even consider buying is the Speciale or the Scuderia.
