As the months, and now years, go on, we wait to see if the prices of 981 Porsche Cayman GT4 will finally start dropping. The 718 GT4 has been out for about six months now and judging by how many are sitting at dealers, both new and used, finding one is not difficult. So what gives? Inventory goes up, prices go down. That’s the law of supply and demand, right? Apparently Porsche GT prices apparently didn’t take that class in school.

I love the GT4 – both the 981 and the 718. I think Porsche absolutely nailed it when making these. The problem is, the 911 exists. That means I am probably never buying a GT4, at least not until until I’m at the point where I collecting GT cars just because they are different from each other. This example is up for sale in North Carolina is going on six years-old and still has an asking price of $88,000. Yes, it has 5,500 miles, but it seems like everyone else had the same idea in terms of not putting miles on it.
Thankfully there are some reasonable owners out there living in reality selling their GT4, but others still seem to think this thing will always be a $90,000 car. I’m here to argue it isn’t, but rather that mid-70s car and even less as the miles go up. At that price point, sign up me. But consider a new 718 GT4 is still in low 100s, I’m just not seeing it. Please tell me I’m not crazy here.
The GT cars just don’t seem to ever depreciate. This has been exacerbated by the rise of Porsche values in general during the pandemic. Case in point, a year ago it seems like the floor for a decent 991.1 GT3 was about 105K, today it looks like that floor is about 115K.
The 911 GT cars don’t appreciate, I’m not so sure about the Cayman and/or Boxster version
You are not crazy – the 981GT4 market is ridiculous, almost all of the cars have super low miles and all of the owners think their cars are still worth $90,000. To call it a real GT car is something of a stretch as real GT cars have always had special engines and this GT4 has a regular Carrera S engine – nothing special about it at all At some point sanity will prevail and buyers will not be willing to pay the ridiculous near MSRP asking prices for these cars. I think that day is coming soon now that the 718 GT4 and GTS are hitting the streets.
Gawd I hope you are correct. It’s a fantastic machine. Perfect drive it to the track-day, run hard all day, drive it home car. It’s still comfortable enough for daily use, and not so monstrously fast you cant enjoy it in the canyons.
I agree with you great car, but at near 90k, lots of interesting 911 models out there. I generally like blue cars, but sapphire blue does not do it for me. when I was buying my 997, I looked at sapphire blue cars and they are just a bit too sparkly for me.
just noticed that a local small dealer has a 2016GT4 in silver… 2016 Cayman GT4
11K Mi., 385 HP, 6-speed
$85,000 or offer
that would probably be a much better deal …since best offer, closer to 80
