Test drove a 2003 911 today....holy crap. From someone who LOVES the M3, this was a different and equally (if not more) cool experience. I felt like I was driving a go-kart with a jetpack on it. Very close to the ground, very racey, great engine sound... LOVED the shift of the manual stick.

Dealer only want $67,000 for this car... sticker is near $80k. Explanation is that most people coming in the door want a 2004 model and they have to move out their inventory.

With a typical M3 sticker at about 55k-60k, this seems like a STEAL... comments?

this may seem directed to you but it's not.

HOLY CRAP enough of this porsche crap already, it seems some ppl see a topic and beats it to death! M3 & 996 all have their pro's and con's, it is all up to the individual to select the right car for him/her....what more is there to comment about? <img src="">

highest profit margin of any cars sold. Plus it's an '03 four months into the '04 MY, no surpise they'd want to dump it near invoice.

dealer have given as much as 8k off msrp to move last year model.

now the one he drove is listed at 80k with options, so 67k is a great price if those are good options. but if it is BS options(like footwell lights for $500 or color seatbelt for $800 and etc), then 67k is a normal price.

over that. They will sell it if their desperate.

however, the car is pretty much how i would order it - very plain...

Besides, as we all know, one can't trust the mileage a car shows these days... Also, with 100 miles on, I would assume it was -under the best possible scanrio- the demo that everyone who wanted or pretended to buy a porche test drove around. My experience tells me that no-one test drives a demo car within the break-in rules, rather abuse it as much as possible, trying to "explore" its capabilities.

Although $20k is a really big difference to justify between a new and a 100 mile car, I would be really really careful.

But what the hack is there to talk about with E46 M3s anyway that hasn't been discussed a million times before? Ha ha ha Seriously, talk about legitimate competition like 911s is fair game!

How's the wheel enterprise going? You incorporate yet?<img src="" height=320 width=410>

I'm never sure if Porsche gets the "supply vs. demand" thing quite right, but there seems to be an abundance of 911s out there. I agree with you, $80,000 they are kinda expensive for what you are the $60's, though, now you are talking close to Boxster S money. That's a steal. It may be the best time (now before the 997 comes out) to pick one of these things up! (And talk about reduced depreciation!)

It says nothing about the mine, it's awesome, and it's a lot less money than even a discounted 911. Neverthless, I'm not sure how anyone could be a car guy and have a pulse and not dream of owning at least one 911 in their life!<img src="" height=320 width=410>
