Default How do you determine fair price of 06 "New" Boxster?

There is a Porsche dealer in my town selling 5 2006 Boxsters. They are new, in the sense that no one has owned and driven them. But, they are last year's model.

The dealer has priced them with a discount, about $5000 off the original MSRP, but I am not sure if that is correct. If I search for the used car value of a 2006, it shows up as much less than the dealer price (KBB, NADA).

So, I am wondering, is the dealer way off base on the price and should I argue that the used car value applies?

Does anyone know when the 2007 models were released (I am trying to figure out how long those 2006 models have been sitting around unsold).

If anyone is thinking of selling a 2006 Boxster with triptronic and premium plus package, please let me know.

I think the reason why the prices are different is because your comparing it to a used car that is previously owned and there for sells much less than a new car regardless of the year, 05, 06..etc.

Hi, Chris, my local dealer (Honolulu) told me that first 07 Boxster will be in town in mid March. I was going to wait for the 07 Boxster base model to come in, but I end up brought a 06 model.
I broughtthis 06 Boxster S two weeks ago. It is not new, but has only 400 miles on it. Previous owner brought itOct, 06 and decided to sell it and he brought a 110K turbo. (anyway, I heard the guy is rich, he get severl Prosche already)Since my purchase is for a preown, not new vechile, it may not be the same case as buying a new vehicle. Anyway, just wants to share some number with you.
The car that I brought (with a lots of option added), the sticker price (MSRP)is $65000 +/-, this is not including tax and all other fee, you need to add that for out the door price.
I got it for $55300, out the door (all tax, fee included) and I also get the 6 years, 100k mile warranty. (Certify)
I think I got a pretty good deal. I sure hope so!
I hope this help.
If you need any infor, please let me know again. I am glad to share.
Do you want to wait for the 07? Will you happy with an 06 model? Do yo know what differenes between the 06 & 07?
This is what I know.
07, Tire pressure monitoring in included. (I won't buy the 06 if the carwithout this option because we have no sparetire now, butmy car has that function)
07, they get rid of the thing that sticking out in the rightside of the rear trunk, it makes a truck a bit bigger.
07, more horse power. (but my Boxster S is fast enough, more than I need in most driving)
Other than that, I think the rest is the same.

when there is a dealer discount about $5000, fair price of 06' boxster is around $43000 for manual, and $44000 for automatic in Los Angeles, CA.
