Lol... umm..wut??!!?!

When did customers start forcing dealers into selling cars at a loss?! On most transactions, dealers make money on the sale of the car, the trade in, the finance fees and post purchase service. The notion that dealers operate at a loss and only profit on the sale of ADM speciality cars is absurd.

why pay more for an inferior product when you can get an e63s for no mark up instead?

Don't forget about the protection plans. They aren't making money on them, they are just worried about their customers and want them covered* before leaving the dealership.

Bullshit, they make plenty of money on cayenne and non GT cars. In fact that is how they make money, a few GT cars per dealer is just cherry on the cake and make no difference in grand scheme of things

Indeed, it is odd to hear that nonsense from somebody who actually sells cars

Oh and extended warranties, wheel and tire “protection” plans. All these revenue streams, yet they’re all losing so much money that Tesla might be considering bailing out Porsche dealerships.
