Consumer preferences are evolving

What if consumers sought out your brand not only because of the vehicles you and your partners offer, but also because of how you offer them? Some people enjoy owning their vehicles. Some prefer to lease them. Now, there’s a third option emerging— subscription services that put idle inventory to work profitably.

The Clutch advantage, from customers who’ve put it to the test

“We are trying to be as customer-centric as possible. We’ve done our homework, studied the data, and we think that we’ve designed an offering that gives the customer exactly what they are looking for. Younger generations are not so convinced to buy into a Porsche through ownership. Instead, they want access to the brand without being locked into a three-year lease. They want to get in and out just like they feel.”
