2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4

Everyone wants options. Not the options in terms of life, I’m talking about optional equipment for cars. “Fully loaded!” “Every option!” I’m sure you’ve seen those phrases throw around a million times when looking at cars when the reality of it is it’s configured like the majority of them for sale. Naturally, Porsche takes this to another level by offering a boat load of options that you didn’t even know were possible and then ever went a step further by offering their special customers whatever they wanted, as long as they paid an eye-watering amount of money.

But what if you ordered a car with no options? Crazy. Who would go into a Porsche dealer and specifically order a car with nothing? Just standard equipment and that’s it. Well, that seems to be what happened with this new 718 Cayman GT4.

2020 Porsche Cayman GT4. XPel clear bra just installed. Condition is Like New. Private Party owned with clear title. Available now! No waiting.

Vehicle will not be released until your funds clear my bank. Thank you for your interest.

I’m really surprised here. Generally dealers want a reasonable amount of options on a car to justify a selling price and naturally try to pad their profit a little, so I’m thinking this one was ordered by the seller. They didn’t even spring for the metallic white, just the standard white. And that’s it. No special stitching, no audio package, no lighting upgrades, nothing. Just a window sticker with a $99,220, a handling fee of $1,350, and a total price of $100,500.

Of course you know the seller is asking not asking that. Nope. We get a $15,000 mark-up for the pleasuring of having it right now. I know the seller can do whatever they want, but there is probably a reason he cover the original selling dealer on the window sticker photo. If a dealer gives you a special allocation, they really don’t appreciate it if you drive it home and then try to flip it. Its not like hes even making a clean $15,000 on this one either. He paid his $8,000 in tax when buying it, so now hes down to just $7,000 plus whatever other fees he had to pay out. It’s a bold and also a strange way to tie up a bunch of capital for a small return.

  1. Seller seems like a real jerk. I hate passive aggressive car ads with lines like “no test drives unless the car is paid for”. Just say “no test drives” and explain the reason why. When I see language like this in the ad, I don’t even bother dealing with this type of seller.

  2. 106 miles on the car so no test drives. I get it. And while seller feedback is 100%, it’s on smaller goods. $115K without a thorough vetting (aka no test drive) is a Big Ask, and a bigger “Trust Me”.

    Trust and verify…a reliable PPI and proper documentation is a must even with only 106 miles.

    That said, I like it. Zero-options is not a deterrent, and makes it a little bit unique IMNTBHO. 🙂 Somebody is going to like this a lot.

  3. I love the fact that it has zero options ! This is exactly how I would have spec’d it out except for the color…..the car has so much going for it already that it doesn’t need more stuff.

  4. Also a GT4 touring would be sweet ! I guess the GTS 4.0 maybe serves that purpose 90%……

  5. a great start for a hod rod…

  6. Lol…all the comments here about how it’s great that it’s zero spec’d, yet none of them mentioned they put a bid in. Yeah, good luck with the sale, I suspect he’s in for a rude awakening…lol.
