I am looking to get a 2012 gtr but seems like there isn't going to be a whole lot left. What is the benefit of ordering a car vs going to the dealer and picking it up. I know if you order, you can get the options you want out of the car. My main question is price. Can you still negoate the price? Are you paying msrp or invoice? Any other benefit in ordering a car?

Hi and welcome to the forum. You cannot order 2012 anymore you'll have to wait until 2013. I highly highly doubt you'll get anything below MSRP regardless if you order or buy off the lot just because of the rarity of the car.

Also, you won't find any 2012 Premiums left only 2012 Black Edition so if you want the new car now, then 2012 BE it is. 2013 pricing comes out in like 8 weeks and then I think dealerships will take deposits.

Good luck.

I would wait for the 2013, and once you decide between a premium or BE the only options are floor mats and a back up camera which most cars have.

Shop around there are cars for less than msrp you just have to find a good dealer even of that means having the car shipped to you.

I would like to get a gtr by then end of this year. From what I have been told that the 2013 will have a HP bump, but also the price will be too. I think the 2012 power/price is just fine for me. That why I really don't care for the 2013. Just wondering, if you get a deal, when you order vs pick one up form the stealership. Anyone know any on the market right now?

Check the for sale section, cars.com, autotrader.com. Like I said before, you'll only find 2012 Black Editions around. Rule of thumb, never pay more than MSRP unless of course you don't mind.

If you can't find a 2012 well below MSRP it may be wiser to try to get a good deal on a 2013. Refusing to be patient compromises your concern about price. Want a good price? You're may get a better deal in advance on a 2013 than what's left of the 2012 unless you go used...

Damn, it's slowly creeping out of my price range
yeah... I have toiled over that too. While other cars at that price range lack the GT-Rs raw performance, I'd have to seriously consider other used options (R8, GT3, etc) if the price of a new GT-R crested $100K. That said, there are always options to buy a used one, save a wad of dough and start modding with your extra cash.

2012's can no longer be ordered.....the cars only come with 2 options anyways so "ordering" a car really doesn't matter much......you will probably get the best price on a new 2013 from a solid dealership that sells between invoice and MSRP....they are around but for the most part do not have 2012's left.....the dealers that do are looking for sticker or higher.....

with a reputable dealer, ordering means guarantee you get the car you want (in the case of the GT-R that mainly means Premium/BE and/or color of your choice) at a price you find acceptable. The downside is having to wait for it arrive. I tend to look at the latter part as an excuse for me to save more money up for the impending arrival

To help answer your (OP) question... I ended up doing both ordering and buying directly from the dealer. I put an order in with my local dealer for '12 back last December, ended up agreeing to MSRP for a BE. Made sense to me at the time, didn't have a problem paying MSRP to guarantee my place in line. My car was destroyed in the Tsunami so I ended up back on the market if you will. I moved quickly and purchased a premium over the phone getting a couple k off of MSRP. There aren't many options with this vehicle so that is really not an attraction to ordering. I think you can get a better deal on vehicles that are actually phyisically on the dealer's properties, but the other side of that arguement is that the if the dealer can sell the vehicle before it reaches him, it is more profitable to him... either way you go you won't be sorry.

If you are dead set on it and know exactly what you want, and want it as soon as possible, I would put an order in. If you are okay with a little uncertainty leading up to the purchase, wait and buy off the lot.
