2015 Porsche Macan: Sold, But Stays Close to Home
June 24, 2015
Edmunds.com employees get first dibs to buy our long-term cars. To avoid any perception that we play favorites with employees, we offer the cars at a "no-haggle" Edmunds private-party True Market Value® price.
We offered our 2015 Porsche Macan S to employees for $49,411. It was in great condition and had just less than 21,000 miles on the odometer.
Only one employee (who wishes to remain anonymous) expressed an interest in the Macan. He had wanted to buy a new one, but found that they were still in short supply. Those that were on dealer lots were either Turbo models or loaded with options. When he saw that our reasonably-optioned Macan was priced under $50K, he said it was a no-brainer.
We paid $62,365 when we bought the Macan new last year. Our sale price of $49,411 reflects a 21 percent depreciation in value. This puts it right in line with our fleet average of about 22 percent.
And so the Porsche Macan leaves the Edmunds fleet, although we'll still see it around the garage (we may even need to bribe the new owner for another turn behind the wheel now and then). We wish its new owner well and hope he enjoys it as much as we did.
