My original 1991Q cost me $33,500 brand new from the dealer (MSRP was $39,000 as I recall). Heck of a reason there!
In the early Spring of 1991, we had a lot of rain here in the SF Bay Area, just about every weekend for 11 or 12 weekends straight. Frontier Infiniti had not sold a Q in 12+ weeks and had like 14 or 15 of them sitting in the lot and more were due in very soon. They were motivated to give me a heck of a deal, although I did not know it per se!
After the awesome test drive, I told them the car was too expensive, and I was really budgeting for a Nissan 300Z or Acura Legend anyway (at about $28k to $30k at the time). In the end, I got them to show me their invoice and I paid about $1500 above that - admittedly, the invoice did not include the usual dealer kick-backs,etc. The sales guy remarked many months later that it was the lowest price new Q45 that they had ever sold!
If I can get an M45 for $36k, then that is a heck of a deal! Hmmm ... maybe I need to rethink my summer car buying plans!
