My husband is now happier than a camel on hump day! His truck had started going downhill and started having more issues Thursday afternoon when he was returning to work after lunch hour. It had 167,000 miles on it and was a 2007 model. This sure didn’t make him happy, but the outcome was fantastic!
He was able to drive his truck to Carmax and they offered him a sufficient amount of money in order for him to sell it to them. We started our vehicle hunt Thursday night and continued again Friday afternoon when he found an amazing deal on a 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 online. This was a great deal because it was through their internet sales which meant there wasn’t a floor salesman involved, so no one to collect a commission off the sale of this car. It was a take it or leave it deal.
We were given the keys for a test drive and told that they would have their best deal ready for us once we returned. The sticker on the car was higher in the lot than the online pricing and the manager even dropped the price another $1,500 for us. The final purchase price of this car came in $7,000 under Kelly Blue Book pricing!
Keep in mind, this is a 2001 and it only has 45,000 miles and is in immaculate condition.
The interior was perfect and no scratches or dings in the paint. This car must have been someone’s toy that stayed under a cover in the garage. I was all for this car purchase! My husband loved his 2007 Ford F150 truck and kept upgrading it. This Porsche will save us money in the huge gas bills and maintenance on his truck because the truck only got 8 – 10 mpg in town after he upgraded his front bumper.
He was SOOO sad to have to sell this but he is SOOO happy that now he can drive a Porsche 911 Carrera 4, even if it is a 2001 model. Keep this story in mind and shop for your next vehicle online before walking through the dealership.
