The Duel: Supercar Co-Ownership vs. Leasing

Dear Supercar Enthusiasts and Members,

In today's edition, we take a close look at the pros and cons of Supercar Co-Ownership compared to traditional leasing, using the current example of the breathtaking Porsche Taycan Turbo S, available through Supercar Sharing as a co-owner vehicle. This electric supercar is immensely popular in Switzerland and is frequently leased by business owners and entrepreneurs. But is that truly the most economical choice? Let's let the numbers do the talking.

The Situation:

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is undoubtedly a dream car, costing 122,000 CHF as a used vehicle when purchased outright. But how can you, as a business-oriented individual, make the most efficient use of this luxury? Here are the two options at play:

Supercar Co-Ownership.
New to the vehicle market, but is it the smart choice?

Our Co-Ownership offering allows you to enjoy the Porsche Taycan Turbo S at a fraction of the solo purchase price. With a total price of 15,944 CHF per share, including comprehensive services such as insurance, road taxes, professional storage, management, service, and warranty, we provide you with a worry-free driving experience. You then only pay 1,874 CHF annually, covering all services, 3,000 km, and 30 days of usage per share. Upon sale, you receive the share amount minus depreciation, or you can transfer the share value to an equivalent successor vehicle.

Traditional Leasing.
Conventional, but at what cost?

In comparison, leasing the Porsche Taycan Turbo S in this calculation requires a market-standard down payment of 20% of the purchase price and a monthly leasing payment of 1,807 CHF – without included services, garage, or other extras.

Additionally, there are annual costs of 3,400 CHF for full coverage insurance, 2% of the vehicle value for service costs, and a nominal interest rate of 6.99%.

We used the leasing calculator from Cembra Bank (link to external source) with a leasing duration of 3 years to perform these calculations.

Calculation Co-Ownership | Holding period 3 years:

Initial costs for 2 shares with 6,000km and 60days of use:

15,944 CHF * 2 = 31,888 CHF

Annual costs over 3 years: (1,874 CHF * 2 shares) * 3 years = 11,244 CHF

Sales proceeds: 85,400 CHF (8,540 your unit value * 2) = 17,080 CHF
