    They should be forced to honor the sale. Ebay is a gamble, they know that for sure. Just because there wasnt a bidding war and they didnt get as much as they wanted doesnt mean they can welsh on the deal. I would put them on blast and see what happens.

    Yes, unless they prefer $39k over bad publicity and a blow to their reputation.

    I honestly don't think it would be a huge blow though (so long as people can think about this situation logically) considering it was an honest mistake on their part. Clearly they didn't mean to leave it at that price without a reserve. Potential buyer may be a bit frustrated but they've lost nothing.

    One clown won't stop the circus. They'll explain that they forgot to place a reserve on the car and sales will go on.

    I'm on your side the dealer should have to honor the ordeal. Bad luck on their behalf but that's what happens when they gamble without fully managing their advertisement. We've had it happen before; not with a porsche but with tv's; luckily the store at least gave us credit. If anything the dealership should do something along the same lines.

    Don't you think it's a bit silly to compare TVs to $100,000+ cars? Apples to oranges.

    I do; but that's not what I'm trying to get at. I mean that if the company is going to dismay an agreement than they should at the very least try and compensate on some level; rather then completely ignoring the buyer.
    that way when the story goes viral atleast they don't look like complete douchebags.

    Look, when you're dealing with more than $100,000, you better be sure that there are no errors when listing. The OP clearly won the auction, if there was an error then that is the dealers issue to deal with. Clearly they're choosing to not take responsibility for their actions and that is appalling.

    OP, try and get some media coverage on this and possibly have an attorney write a nice letter.

Period, end of story, how is an Ebay auction any different? If they put a price on the window and put it in the lot, wouldn't that be the same thing? Maybe next time they'll pay more attention to what they're doing. The devil is in the details.

    Somebody screwed up, man up, pay for your mistake and move forward.
