in my country you wont even get any porsche at 86k, well maybe a used 03' cayenne S
carreras with full option cost 230k ++

Gotcha! Nice work! I just saw under the avatar it said Dallas and you leased it in Dallas, no idea how Florida came into play! Enjoy the car!

Nice choice to go with 7-speed manual. Really miss the 6-speed from the 997.

Yeah even with GAP insurance you just walk away without funding the deficit...but you are correct in that the down payment is down the tubes.

OP - nice ride!

As a car salesman, I can say the "best" deal is in the eye of the beholder... All that matters is that you are happy!

I think your salesman is pretty happy too

Great looking car, sounds like a horrible deal from an objective financial standpoint.

Have you ever driven one? Take a Cayman S out on a winding road or mash the go pedal on a 911 coming out of a turn. They're all about handling and feel combined with excellent build quality.

Well I drove the cayene, and panamera, they haven't impressed me. In my x6m I feel much better. But then again I never drove 911 turbo or any of those.

That is why everyone isn't driving around in a Porsche.

BMW leases are hilarious. They basically rent their cars for nothing, then get them back and jack up the prices on CPO sales.
