Eric, I'm sorry you made bad deals. I paid $100K exactly for mine, minus $7500 tax credit. My car has 25K miles and is in perfect condition. Green circles on the motors, perfectly functioning battery, new HVAC, etc. What do you think I could sell my car for? I bet my depreciation is less at this point than I would ever have gotten on a Panamera. I have had my car since December, 2011 and have not paid a penny for maintenance (including oil changes), repairs or even loaner cars. BTW, I'm not selling. I love my car.
I'm sorry to say Sigurd that I don't make bad deals. I extensively research each transaction before I make them. As a result I always come out ahead at purchase (and when applicable, at the sale). I paid $78K for my new Fisker in December 2012, when most buyers were still paying $95K or more for theirs. I am paying the least per month previously paid on a lease of my current vehicle...$1K/month x 36 months for a new $137K car; no money down; 12K miles/year).
It was only after having my Fisker on Autotrader.com for over a year at your imaginary (slowly depreciating) "fiskerbuzz member-inflated price" and not getting any buyers, that I came to my senses (not allowing love for an inanimate object to cloud my judgement) and sold it with 31K miles at its realistic price in the $40’s. Again, there are always foolhardy uniformed buyers who are "bitten by the bug" and make a poor decision. I wish you one when the time comes.
To answer your question, I believe with 25K miles you would currently pocket about $48-49K. I couldn’t find a 2012 Panamera on autotrader.com anywhere in the country for less than $52,895, AND that was a base V6 model with 28,500 miles (probable MSRP $90k).
When you do sell your car, please do post a copy of your bill of sale.
P.S. For the Fisker Blindly Faithful who post unknowingly:
10 Most Valuable Used Luxury Cars
. Porsche Panamera
The 4-door Porsche Panamera sports car ranks third on our list at just above $70,000. Specifically, the Turbo model comes in third, while the V8-powered Panamera S ranks a little lower. There are several reasons why the Panamera boasts such a strong resale value, including desirability, sportiness and a high-end look and feel. But maybe the top reason is its Porsche heritage.
Porsche receives 3 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards
Porsche has received three Best Resale Value Awards from KBB for the 2013 Porsche Cayenne and the 2013 Porsche Panamera, including a Top 10 Best Resale Value win. Kelley Blue Book (KBB.com) has released its 2013 picks for the Best Resale Value in various vehicle classes and two of the coveted spots have gone to Porsche for both the Cayenne SUV and the Panamera luxury car. The KBB awards are given every year based on the resale projections of the Kelley Blue Book Official Residual Value Guide, which is the most respected and influential used vehicle pricing guide on the market. Every year, awards are given by KBB to the latest-model vehicles they believe will retain their value best over the first five years of ownership. Porsche won in the Cayenne and Panamera's respective categories. In addition, the Cayenne was included in the Top 10 cars with Best Resale Value for 2013. That short list was topped by Best Brands Toyota and Lexus, but also included other brands like the Jeep Wrangler. The official list can be viewed here. The 2013 Porsche Cayenne came in #7
on the Top 10 list. The 2013 Porsche Cayenne is an all-new offering which comes with several power train options and a new S (sport) model which includes a new V8 engine offering more power and torque than the Turbo model. The 2013 Porsche Panamera is a sport sedan now offered in a new sport wagon with family-friendly seating options in a sporty car configuration. Porsche has offered concepts of the Panamera in hybrid and Sport Tourismo as well. The two Porsches are well-deserving of their KBB accolades.
Funny I couldn’t find any resale value awards for the Fisker Karma…did I miss them?
