Many having just had the Installation Service performed and detailing work done, why so many?

Are these the boys, who buy run for a month or two and then look for the next flavour of the month car etc etc...

Even noticed one chap was willing to Part Ex for a Focus RS:runaway:

more fezzas, porkers and lambos available though ;)

from a quick examination most seem to be with independent / specialist dealers, which in some cases is not a bad thing.

I suspect wider availability/ re-sale reflects; some who couldn't really afford it, some speculators and some whose circumstances have changed.

I think a lot of people that bought one to sell on are now looking at a small loss or break even and chipping them on for this reason. I don't think there are many people that are that disapointed with their cars. There is always the financial side of the coin but I do not think there are that many being sold by people that canny afford them.

Couldn't agree more. If you've bought one and genuinely wanted it in the first place, the idea of selling it is the absolute furthest thing from your mind. It's a truly sensational car - full stop.

Yip i am 1 of those people mines is for sale just now on Pistonheads and Ebay.

None of the reasons above i am afraid.

I absolutely LOVE the car however i have been offered a car i missed out on 2 years ago and i want to try and grab it if i can and i need to move quickly.

Zed Ed is absolutely bang on the button

White (Only 10 in the world in white) Lambo Superleggera. These have now taken a very nice healthy drop in price and are there for the taking.

It will be used purely for track use and apart from the clutch costs will probably be cheaper to run on track than the GTR and dare i say it probably more reliable with a lot less worry about Transmission temps and pre and post inspections etc.........:(

If my GTR does not sell then i will gladly keep her, my outlook is nice and simple, what is meant to be is meant to be.

I am the one who has priced my car at the Pre Increase level as i want to give someone a genuine chance of buying it, it makes me sick all these "Stealers" and private individuals pricing them at new prices (When they have Pre Increase Cars) trying to make a profit.

Ok the dealers have overheads etc, what are the excuses of the "So called" GTR enthusiasts trying to make a profit?????

It is a nice feeling not having to sell, i am lucky in that i put a nice healthy deposit down, if she does not get any interest i will keep her and when the baloon is due will pay it off.

Regards

is the GTR that much flakier than it's peers?

to me it seems to be just a little highly strung, like all other supercars

I was reading the other day about some big issue with Porkers, where there was a big warranty ding dong a while back; 'rear main seal' failure or something.... lead to engne failures and denied warranty claims:rolleyes: sounds familiar:chuckle:

my only niggle with the GTR is that I have foregone owning an iconic car, like a porker, fezza or lambo:chuckle:

RMS Real Main Seal - this an issue with the engine in the 911 full stop and the caymen. I had both the 911 and the Caymen serviced before they were sold and Porsche done them both under warranty - now it may be that it was just the dealer being quiet selling cars and was trying to make money wherever it could but at the same time you cannot get away from the fact that it is just an issue waiting to happen. I am sure the reason that Porsche have never sorted it is due to the amount of extended warranties they sell off the back of it.

As for a porker, fezza or lambo being more iconic - I would say to the masses yes but to the petrol head only the Rarri is a more meaningful brand than the "GTR" brand, even then it only means that on the track you are coming in behind the GTR that has jsut whipped your arse and cost less than half the price.

Ah yes, I presume Nissan is currently cooking up an insurance extended warranty scheme to give us piece of mind when the tranny is getting on a bit

Very rarely does a RMS (rear main seal) on a porsche cause an engine failure, mostly just a few drips of oil on the garage floor!!!

aint selling mine lol

gets more attention than most of the exotica ferrari's/porkers and the like!

although the down side of the attention has been some T**Ts filiming me in a most dangerous manner on a dual carrigeway...accelarating right up to me....dropping off to the side....then to the rear....holding a phone cam whilst driving....idiots!

Must be a week for them Lamborghini : 2008 Superleggera (E-Gear)

I would have to say I would be very tempted to let the GTR go for one - they are one of the sexiest cards on the planet and the V10 sounds awesome.

Hi kp,

That 1 has been for sale for a while, very much over priced to be honest.

She started her advert at 125k and brought it down to 120k, she has now dropped it again to 116k i believe.

Closer the 100k mark is more realistic.

There is either 2 or 3 in white in the UK, different Lambo dealers all tell you a different number.

Defo only 10 in white in the world though.......

The white is stunning!!
