Just saw this today in my autotrader alerts. 😄

Do you guys think we'll be able to flip our Emira FE allocations for a similar price when they arrive??? 😉

Edit: Looks like the original posting has already been taken down. (Lol)

Silly market. Who dares to post something like that for the Emira?!

"I'm selling my allocation for an amazing FE V6. The timing is uncertain so you must be patient. The gearbox should not be rushed and you can test the 2010 engine by renting a Camry. I won't post pictures because colors are difficult to capture accurately, especially the famous Darth Verdant, personally signed by George Lucas. Since you want a lot of body roll, the Tour is the version to pick. Buyers with vision 20/20 are preferred so the screen can be seen."

LOL in these days I would highly doubt if anyone (not taking about the so-called VVIP or the trolls) at the Porsche dealer could get an “normal allocation” (not those year-long waitlists things) at standard MSRP for even a 718 cayman GT4.

I already spoke to a dealer regarding my GT3RS allocation status, these guys will be banned don't worry, no one will run away with this, infact they won't get the car cause until now no official build deposit have been placed, so either they are trolls or some stupid dealer that have stupid customer.

Even my allocation not yet confirmed despite paid deposit like 3-4 years ago for it, big chance I might not get one first year and maybe not ever.

Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of capitalism. This is not that. Price gouging is not capitalism, people confuse greed as if it's an economic system. Not going through an economic speech, so I will leave it here.
You’re so silly. High demand, low supply, rich consumers etc. No greed, free market. You wouldn’t say it’s greed if it were livestock, steel or such

There is a reason why you would never see a limited run Ferrari allocation being sold online before the client even places the order. They would be banned from purchasing a Ferrari for life. It's called integrity. The listing went down fairly quickly, not because it sold.

I understand the point of supply v demand, I also get if there is someone willing to pay then that is what it is worth. Free market. However, there is still ethics in economics and if you can't understand that you can not place profits above all else, then I don't know what more to say.

You can’t apply socialism
to rando things you enjoy. Either the haves can have or they can’t . You should be mad at Porsche (and Chevrolet etc) for not adding manufacturing to satisfy demand. You’re mad at a guy who had the foresight to reserve, probably with a substantial deposit, a car that wasn’t even built yet. Are you mad at the guy who sold everything he owned to buy Google stock back in the day? I applaud him.

We already live in a pretty immoral/unethical world, full of corruption and taking advantage of others.

Just my opinion, but a life where all anyone cared about was "Money money money money money, MORE MORE MORE!" is a pretty pitiful one.
How many cars do you own? What is your stop gap you bought to tide yourself over while we wait?

Why would a VIP+ Porsche customer feel the need to flip? Presumably he/she is less concerned about making a quick profit.

That is a good gambler, not a good investor. And hopefully there some out there that measure success in other ways than $.
