A Porsche is a Porsche, no matter what anybody says. Even if its a Boxter, its still a Porsche!!! Just because its cheaper, why should it not be good enough to be a Porsche?
You can get a Mercedes for around 22,000€, but then you can also get one for 100,000€. They still carry the same brand, Mercedes, but they are in different price classes. Just like the Boxter and 911.
People with a lot of money who like the Boxter more than the 911 will buy the Boxter, not because of the price tag, but instead they buy it because they like it more.
Same thing with the Mercedes. If a wealthy person wants to have a smaller coupe, he/she will buy a CLK instead of the CL
. He/she maybe wouldn't have any problems paying for a CL
, but they may not like it.
Why buy something you don't like??
If people like the Boxter more, why give a sh*t if its the cheaper one?
