Huracan pricing bubble

I don’t know about anyone else, but these prices are getting out of control. Evos with 5k+ mileage asking for 350k plus?? Performantes in the high 300 low 400 range? 610s approaching 300? At some point this has to relax a little. I’m just some old guy venting that when he finally has enough to purchase the cars that the asking price keeps getting higher and higher.

Had six Porsches over the years. Got my first in 1982. Four of those six are worth a small fortune today if I still had them. I'll never forget the exhilarating rush of my 79 930 Turbo. For some reason looking back even today it seems as fast as anything I've ever driven even though I know it's not.

73 - 914
75 - 911S
79 - 911SC
79 - 930 Turbo
89 - 930 Turbo
2019 - GT3RS

Selling cars at MSRP with hardly any allocations or used cars won't work for very long. I don't see waiting around for a car at MSRP as a viable option going into the future. I see ADMs becoming somewhat of a survival mechanism for dealerships. With so little used cars in inventory and the trickling in of allocations and deliveries. Dealers will have to do ADMs to stay in business - just my opinion.

That $40,000 is actually closer to $5,000 when converted from nominal gain to real gain. At 10% inflation per annum, a car could depreciate at a somewhat normal historical rate in real dollars while at the exact same time appreciate in nominal dollars. Weird times we are in.
I hear what you're saying but most look at it like I paid 200k for the car and four years later I sold it for 240k therefore I made 40k. If you really want to get technical; you could add fuel costs, interest (if any), maintenance, fees, mods, insurance and it would then most likely be a loss.
