£3k

Balance on collection.

If your OPC is wanting more cash buy from a different OPC.

After you place a deposit the info also gets forwarded to Silverstone PEC who will invite you to a free 1/2 day on the tracks there driving a car similar to what you have ordered.

Presumably that’s only if you are paying cash?

I think there is some confusion here between the deposit required to secure an order and the deposit sum needed for a finance agreement. It seems this dealer is suggesting a £10k deposit is about normal for their PCP customers but it can be lower if the customer wants as 10% is the minimum.

I have a Porsche order form in front of me because I just revised my spec and had to resign it. I'd post an image if I new how, but the official Porsche line on deposits appears to be:

£3k for Boxter, Cayman, Macan, Cayanne
£5k for Taycan, Panamera, All 911 (excluding Turbo and GT Models)
£10k for 911 Turbo and GT models

Yes that’s the deposit required for order placement but the finance deposit can be completely different.

I paid on finance, and paid the £3k as a deposit as per the chart. That is the actual deposit amount irrespective of how you are paying (cash or finance).

Finance allows you to pay as much or as little of the total as you want, and finance the rest. The only caveat being that the original deposit and the amount your are financing must be at least 10% of the value of the car. So if you are buying a £60k Macan the min is £3k dealer deposit then £3k on top of that when you get a build date to bring it up to £6k or 10% of the total purchase price.

I think we've done that to death now.

Finance allows you to pay as much or as little of the total as you want, and finance the rest. The only caveat being that the original deposit and the amount your are financing must combine to be at least 10% of the value of the car. So if you are buying a £60k Macan the min is £3k dealer deposit then £3k on top of that when you get a build date to bring it up to £6k or 10% of the total purchase price.

I think you have just repeated it all again!!

My point was that the deposit being suggested by the OP’s dealer was in relation to a recommended amount for a finance deal. Others then started to talk of the £3k deposit to place an order.

Anyone, as you say done to death
