New Porsche Panamera sedan.

Ordered last Fall. Just came in last week. (yes same guy). Not me.

Added $26,000 in options from base price. Granted. He did not pay full MSRP.

It's a car. A 4 door sedan. Porsche.

I'm not sure I get your point. Bragging that you can afford to spend north of 100k on a car? Incredulous that someone with no more sense than to pay 100k for a car is willing to pay another 26k for options and accessories? Furious that the price you paid for options would have been enough for a sensible person to spend on an entire car?

Missed the "not me" part. Same neighbor who owns the Porsche Cayenne in another post.

Porsche has always been known for expensive options. It is what it is. People still buy them.

Have you driven one? This is the best 4 door car made. Go google magazines reviews of the turbo (there’s two models of it that are faster)... It obvious you are not familiar to the Porsche world on costs and options on cars. You can customize every part of the vehicle, but it comes at a cost, this is nothing new unless you have no clue about it. But yes, some options should be standard, not actually options.

Who cares? Expensive cars have expensive options and lots of them. In other news, water is wet.

I wish I could show the neighbor these two threads! Unit is obviously obsessed with this guy's expensive cars! Who cares......Porsches are expensive to buy and maintain, signed Captain Obvious.

Heh. Back in the day, the X50 option for a Porsche 911 turbo was $17k all by itself.
