Porsche sets its recommended retail pricing - of course they know.

Like any business, Porsche prices for maximum profit.  Just like we all do.  The only thing that will reduce Porsche prices in Australia is falling demand - and I don't see that happening at a time when the company has the best product offering (either here or just around the corner) in its history.

It's safe to ignore US pricing - it isn't relevant to the factory's thinking because Australian consumers can't buy from the US.

As well to the fact Im sure Porsche sell a lot more in the US due to population. So having an extreme price point for profit is not need there as average income is lower then Australia, but the demographic is larger that they are marketing to their.
I also think it would be the fact that there is more then 3 max dealers per state. America would have 10-15 per state. So competition is there and they need to make sales and the best way to do that is to cut a little margin for a larger turn over.

This is all personal opinion with no research so I may be off.

One thing you guys have to remember is that due to the demand and size of orders Americans actually get the cars for a cheaper rate from the manufacturers.

What that discount is, I suppose we will never know....

Australia is a sucker punch for everything price wise.

I'm not sure what you do for a living but wages in general are a hell of a lot lower there than here.  It's easy to compare buying cars and houses when earning say $100k a year plus here when doing the same thing there you probably only get around a half.  I'm the first to bitch about taxes here but trust me the grass isn't always greener on the other side.  :thumbsup:

Just my 2 cents.

Totally agree hence my point about earning the same coin as I do here over there. I work for myself.
