    Yeah the Macans are moving, so are the Caymans. My boss bought a leftover 911 GTS4 last year. They dropped 15k off the sticker as he walked up to it. I'm surprised the leftovers aren't budging either.

    Caymans fall neatly into a reasonable price range for a lot folk. Like the Macan, that's very attractive for those looking to get into the marquee...

    As much as she originally liked the Cayenne, besides a bit over her budget, she just felt lost in it. She's barely 5' and about 100lbs. Her CTS even feels big to her, thus the smaller SUV/crossover segment. Of course, I'm half expecting to see some type of sport coupe tester (I'm thinking SF) in the driveway when I get home today and this whole SUV thing to go right out the window...

    I wish she'd stop this nonsense to be honest, stop fuckin' around and make a damn call. And get something a little more reasonable, money wise. But who am I to talk?

    Re: Macan vs. Cayenne

    I can see the appeal to her to want to sit up higher if she's 5'... so that makes sense to want an SUV/Crossover. My wife hates large cars/SUVs/Trucks, but she got tired of not being able to see over or around cars at intersections. She's not short either. So this past year I was finally able to talk her in to a small SUV.

    Re: Macan vs. Cayenne

    Nothing new yet. She couldn't get a sales slug to so much as talk to her at the Jag dealership Thursday. Said she was there for almost an hour poking around and couldn't find a single sales rep to help her. I get the whole no pressure thing, but she said the only one she could find was heading out on a demo and he didn't know when he'd return. Almost an hour later, I think she pretty much made up her mind about the marquee...

    ...and on it goes...

    Go back more toward the end of the month, they'll be attentive. Or go on line and check out the inventory on the lot and contact the internet sales guy and set up an appt. That's how I've bought my last couple of cars. The internet guys are usually very accommodating.

    These damned sport back cars are ridiculous. I have the displeasure of sitting in the back of an Audi 7 on a regular basis and my head is tilted the whole time. Useless shit design for a sedan. Sitting up front is fine, an adult in the back is not intended I guess.

    I'm not sure why, but she's openly discussed NOT being interested in anything Audi has to offer. Doesn't matter much why, it's her call. She doesn't have any interest, that's that really...

    supply and demand, how does it work?

    When you want a luxury vehicle that is super hot right now, you probably aren't gonna beat them down on the price like its a ford taurus

    Porsche of Nashua seems to have plenty in stock. Doesn't look to me like there's an exceptional amount of demand.

    Re: Macan vs. Cayenne

    My only experience with the Jag was to park in the lot at Mt Sunapee next to one and chat with the owner while the respective kids were juggling gear. He was very enthusiastic (that I knew what it was) about it but only had 10K or so on it. Substantially larger rear seat and cargo than a Macan. The front grill is distinctive and the lines are well sculpted for this vehicle class.

    Who ever imagined Porsche and Jaguar would sell crossovers....

    The Macan hasn't been purchased yet simply because she's waiting for the right vehicle (options wise) at the right price. Yes, we've been to Nashua and yes they have a decent amount. They're far better to deal with than Stratham...

    Macans are moving at an incredible clip right now. The sales on those were up like, over 40% from last year. If I remember, it's one of their top sellers right now. She's hoping to find a low-mileage used one with the right options...

    That being said though, she flips more than I do (which is why I STILL don't have a street bike in my garage). While the Macan is anchoring this quandary, her mind quickly turns to other manu's as I've mentioned...

    Re: Macan vs. Cayenne

    And, the decision has been made. She went with the QX70. One test ride and some haggling and it was done. Yes, we all know it's a 3-year old platform. Then again, so is the Macan. Why change a good thing, right? Again, make all the comparo's and go over the spec sheet with us again, that SO impresses me. It was her call. I only asked for real experiences here so I could relay them to her...

    Although I DID get her to at least look & drive an Acadia Denali - which, in my opinion would have been a FAR better choice with much better options & user interface. And while we were there, she actually started toying around with an ATS-V. She got pretty hot for it, and I suddenly pictured it in our driveway. But we pressed on...

    One last visit to Porsche of Nashua once again confirmed that they weren't moving much on the price. Although this time, we got them to come down an extra $500 to a whopping $1000 off because of the cash down payment...

    In comparison, we got about $12K off the sticker on the QX plus the 150K mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, 2 years of preventive service, remote start and a tow package. Apples to apples and pound for pound, it was a far better deal and made WAY more sense *FOR HER*...

    So yeah - if YOU had the money / if YOU were in the market / blah-blah-blah...carry on...

    At least Infinity uses a normal transmission in the QX70 instead of absorbing the CVT from Nissan.

    If it had the CVT, it would've been a no-go. I had that in a Murano and wasn't impressed. It sucked towing even a couple ATV's, and I was warned (by a service tech) that that wasn't such a good idea...
