Default Question about buying a demo. car that has a Gas Guzzler tax.

Friend of mine is looking at a Demo. model of a 996TT which gets hit with the Gas Guzzler tax.

As it is an ex. demo, wouldn't the dealer have to pay the GG tax on the car to use as a demo, thus absolving him from having to pay it?

No, as it was never actually "sold".

Hmm ... I thought I'd seen demo models before with 'Luxury tax paid', etc. I guess that's just a dealer trying to sweeten the deal.

if your friend has enough money to buy a 996TT, im sure a gas guzzler tax wont hurt his pocket that much. if hes worried about a few G's or however much it is, tell him to just get something cheaper

He's not worried about it... trust me. It was me asking the question, not him.

If you are a repeat customer of a dealership, you can pretty much demo any car you want.
