Anyone have any thoughts on preliminary numbers for a Ghibli lease?
That's not too bad considering what it is, just about what I was expecting.My dealer has advise $799-$899 SQ4 no options, excluding tax, title license and acquisition fee and $5K down based on a 48 mo lease. Which is about 50% residual and 4-6% interest which is very aggressive and makes more sense using the base model. I personally am planning to spend more given options and my disbelief. $85K including $1,250 delivery, 400 license fees and $795 acquisition fee, 45% residual and 5% interest is $1,330 no cash down and $1218 with $5k Cash down. Get our your wallets boys and girls! IF they offer a 36 month lease it may actually be better as they could use more aggressive residuals.
sticker price plus the dealer's mark up will be crazy, I think on a car like this they should focus on getting as many out as possible without discouraging people with mark up's. Maserati is trying to grow after all.Going to ask but all indications are sticker price is the price. People are ordering without even seeing the car. I might ask my dealer but another already said sticker. If demands becomes crazy. God forbid could go to sticker +!! I believe the pricing is high enough to avoid that. We will see once deliveries and test drives shortly. Remember all my lease numbers are estimates only based on limited information. 5 points of residual is about 90 a month. Cannot imagine residual lower than 45 and hoping for more aggressive at 48 months!!
As far as making money goes for them, it would have probably been best if they made leasing available a year or two after just to force people to buy these cars, then as sales slow down bring in leasingWell, Maserati is in the biz of making money. I wouldn't expect them to be willing to take a loss leasing this car. My guess is they could forgo leasing altogether, the demand for this car is so great. My own preference is that they favor full purchases over leasing deals, otherwise they'll begin to lose the most attractive part of Maserati ownership -- exclusivity! If they lose that, they may as well bend over for zee Germans.
