Yeah, that's part of the dilemma. Right now, they have such great residuals on base Carreras that you may be able to lease one that's considerably more expensive than a Cayman S, but have similar monthly payments. They have been offering 76% 2yr/12k/yr residuals on the 911.
Even if not leasing, that in part reflects PFS' estimation of depreciation rates. They also want lease turn-ins that they can CPO and sell with a warranty the same as a new one.
