You realize how you look? 100X worse and your issues are tires and a few things that I would guess you caused on trackSorry to chime in between the other cross talk in here, but no one should be disputing Porsche resale values, period. They are the best out there. I bought my 991.2 GT3 with 4400 miles on it, roll cage, exhaust, and full body PPF for $172K 1.5 years ago. I can sell it for $165K all day, even with 9200 miles on it.
My $313K MSRP 600LT with 3K miles on it? I'd be lucky to sell it for $235K. I've owned it 5 months.
McLarens are built like shit vs Porsche and their values tank faster than anything else on the market.
My 600LT is still in the shop, going on almost 3 weeks now. It's lived there for 2 out of 5 months I've owned it.
Mclaren has denied a tire warranty (due to steering shake that couldn't be balanced out) they have denied a warranty for $30 in window felt replacement (due to grease smearing) and denied a warranty to diagnose a rattle.
The 720S I have as a loaner is a car off their showroom floor, and was never used as a Demo or loaned to another customer. It rattles, the steering column makes a whine / squeels at low speeds sometime, and there's a sound of what sounds like a baseball card stuck in the spokes of a bike that you hear while driving it.
It's built like SHIT. You guys saw from the pics.
Seriously. Unmac must work for McLaren. Mclaren is TERRIBLE as a company and builds terrible products. McLaren is a dead brand to me now, period.
Here's a list of a majority of the issues I've had:
1) Cracked Windshield, replaced
2) Replacement windshield had deformities in the glass, spotting in the glass itself
3) Replaced with 2nd windshield
4) Steering wheel vibration since day I bought it, Diagnosed and balanced tires. Picked up car, problem persisted
5) 2nd attempt at steering shake issue, this time they discover the Trofeo Rs could not be road force balanced out. It sat at Newport Beach McLaren for 2 weeks while Mclaren recommended things like inflating the tires overnight and other "troubleshooting" because they denied the warranty to replace the tires.
5) Fought with the dealer and eventually got them to replace with Corsas. Noted slightly less steering shake when picked up
6) 3rd attempt at steering shake. Pending confirmation it's 100% fixed - still there for that
7) driver Window trim spontaneously cracked, replaced
8) driver Window trim spontaneously cracked 10 mins after picking up the car and driving off
9) IRIS freezing and lockups
10) Alcantara defect in steering wheel, replaced
11) excessive noise from Spider roof, determined most mounts and brackets were not torqued correctly and the hinges were rubbing metal to metal
12) undertray was causing a rattle because it was not torqued to spec
13) Rattles in center console
14) back window buzzing throughout all RPMs
15) Front fender lining, driver's side, came loose due to factory forgetting to bolt it in
16) Drivers door seal needed to be resecured, not installed correctly
17) A couple more little issues I cannot recall
Total beater. McLaren is a brand you cannot trust that you'll receive a quality product. Yes other MFGs have issues, but McLaren must be 100X more likely to have a poorly built car.
I sold my PTS GT3RS retail buyer with 1800 miles for what you claim your GT3 is worth a year ago ... you just look silly.
Mclaren tanks because of posts like these - 99% of guys will work with the dealer vs against them especially over tires which is amazing you find that Mac's fault.
As far as Porsche being superior - why do you think 918 owners hide on FB vs a forum add Ford GT owners aren't saying all their defects. Factories - all factories have their issues it's a fact. When you run around beating a drum vs working with the dealer and factory they are well aware this is not your last purchase. I assure you that the dealer has their side to tell but who cares - right. All factories work with their customers as do the dealers it's their job today and in the future. When you stop becoming a customer and become a detriment it is what it is.
I also have a Lambo SV - it's had it's issues and the Huracan is a great car but it's because of Audi - try one pre Audi.
There is a reason people don't consider a Porsche an exotic because it's not. Exotic's in any form women cars shoes animals are not for the faint of heart. I have an Austin Healey that it's 50/50 I make it home - it's not about the car breaking it's about the experience and you prefer reliability over exotic. No offense but I love when stuff breaks and work with the mechanic etc it's a car guy thing that most owners embrace. just got done putting clear bra etc on the Senna we removed the engine cover and it was easy took 10 minutes after the mechanic went and got a GTR made a video and showed us how. The mechanic can be your friend or enemy you choose the way to play not the dealer factory etc. who want their customers to smile - that's just a fact and Porsche being massive is far from the same experience from start to finish. Last note - Thank you as I was interested in a GT2RS or 600LT after this post I prefer the 600LT or maybe wait for the 750LT my CGT is the only Porsche that stays.
ps. try being nice mechanics salesman factory I'm sure will be more open to your issues.
