I’m willing to bet there’s a huge subset of people who don’t give a damn about the model and just look at the Porsche logo on the car before thinking, “wow that’s a Porsche”. So if vanity is a reason, it is reasonable to expect the purchase of a lower cost model. If not, then I guess not. Nothing against OP, we’re all human :D
from my experience on or around black friday. Next years models are coming out soon and are often already announced so you dealers are in hurry to get rid of their inventory + manufacturers give huge incentives due to black friday.
