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.

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.
