Supercar Bargain Anyone?

When this health scare is over, it's generally considered we're going to be in for a rough time economically.  Some of the high fliers, who normally buy aspirational motors will feel the chill and may be dropping out of the market. 
 
In a recession, cash is king, so anyone with a bob or two in their locker, could well be snapping up a bargain supercar very soon! 
 
Currently, Lambo Huracans are languishing at just around the 100K mark, even the more focussed Performante can be had for just a little bit more. Prices for McLaren 720S have tumbled to £150K and below, whilst the 600LT (which incidentally I rather like) has a sticker price of around £200k, it can be had for £150K (or less) with just a couple of hundred miles on the clock. There's no waiting list for the latest McLaren GT either - they're in the showrooms now and looking for buyers!  
 
A £110 grand Mercedes AMG GT with 10,000 miles can be bought for £50K and the hard core GTR version (£180K) is now less than £100K.
 
And whose to say these prices won't drop further once we're all free and safe to show our faces again?
 
With Italy so badly hit and seemingly in lock-down for yonks, Ferrari having closed up shop, so what price can a new F8 Tributo be bought for? Maybe down into Porsche pricing levels? - and with 7 years of free servicing that would make it an extremely attractive proposition.
 
992 Turbo S would then need to be discounted in order to compete!   Now there's a thought!!!!  
 
Regards,
 
Clive
 
Yours for around £50K!

Oh YES!Now from my avatar it can be seen I've already made the jump into what you like, a 600LT. With the massive discount on the original sticker price, a no brainer for me. Unfortunately it is spending a lot of time in the garage at the moment.

Good post Clive.   I said something similar on here recently.
 
I'll wait and see what gets 'returned' back to the Porsche Centres at the end of this crisis and see what bargains can be had.  The market is / will be flooded with unsold sock, both new and secindhand, and they will be falling over themselves to get some cashflow.
 
Whilst I feel dreadfully sorry for any of the staff in the dealerships who may lose their jobs because of this crisis the sales side have had the upper hand for too long.  Maybe the tide may change in favour of the punters at last!

Congratulations on gravitating to the dark side, Geoff. Be interested to hear how you're going along with it once lockdown is over. In the meantime, be careful not to rev it too hard in the garage - you'll set the building alight!

The "Force" is strong on the dark side. A whole different world out there. Loads of admiration, positive comments and I now get let out of side roads.
