    Base is 209k, then 20k in options, then on roads. it probably is 244 on the road. Which is ridiculous.

    I'd say that would be a hard no at the moment.

    No idea about Porsche specifically but of the several dealerships I do work for, some are reporting bumper months!

    It's really varied. I'm working for dealers all around the country.

    Brisbane - the usual
    Northern NSW - dead
    Large Sydney Metro (15+ dealership group) - dead
    Eastern Melbourne - the usual
    Central Vic - increased sales
    Perth - dead

    In gear tests a bit of fun, nice roads, interesting comments about engagement of each car, and some trash talk from passing fat chicks at the end....

    Spoke with P South Syd, they are flat out. People racing in to get their new ride before dealers are closed down s the assumption.

    It is thei future order book that will be empty that they have to worry about. Deliveries now we're orders from months ago. The hurt is yet to come.

    I see Porsche UK have closed their dealerships for a couple of weeks.

    My dealer in Reading is closed until further notice. Not WFH - closed. Emails get an auto response. Thatís stupid. They could be on the phone and the configurator with clients. HR Owen is working WFH.

    My thoughts exactly and what I have strategised some of my dealers to do.

    Digital doesn't stop. You've got people sitting at home wasting time on the internet. Now is the time to hit them with ads and put them into your funnel.

    Interesting.

    The last 2 weeks at my Real Estate Offices in Melbourne have been mental.... not sure the next 4 will be the same.

    Also I am worried about some buyers not being able to settle.
    Is it a Bird?? Well, sort of, Yes.... 300kph+ club
