The excessive financial penalty needs sharing , in the form of accelerated depreciation, as Mclaren and the dealers have enjoyed their margin but the early customers have taken the penalty ....... there is a lack of equity.
The issue is exascerbated by......
1. Over supply ( invoicing cars to the dealers for stock)
2. Huge discounts on 12C's which get reflected in the market ( caused by Mclaren insentivising the dealers I'm sure, it is industry practice)
3. The surprise of the 650 launch and it's effect of making the 12C second choice in the market
Mclaren and the dealer made their margin from my purchase, as I paid list price, and now want to repeat that again with the 650S but want me to take the extraordinary loss on my 12C.
So there is a lack of equity in the financial balance, ie Mclaren and the dealer have their margin and I have to fund the excessive depreciation.
Thus there should some flexibility or way of assisting early adopting 12C owners to trade up to the 650S
