Actually an Infiniti dealer in Denver, Colorado is giving new meaning to “remove the obstacles” in it’s sales process of new Infiniti cars. An employee claims he was asked by his boss to steal a customer’s Porsche Cayman. Say what?!
The plan was actually pretty simple. The Porsche Cayman, whose owner was sick of making monthly payments for the car, goes away freeing him up to buy a new Infiniti from the dealer. BAM! The way is paved for a sale. “Genious” you might say. Well, until the employee refuses and gets fired.
His boss even told him it wouldn’t count as theft because the keys would be left in the vehicle. Really doesn’t even come close to adding up or making any logical sense whatsoever. Now the dealership is claiming that the fired employee was actually responsible for 5 cars that disappeared from the lot. I’d hate to be the judge on that case.
All of this reminds me of an experience my parents had with a new Toyota Camry they bought new a few years ago. One morning, about 2 months after buying the car, they climbed in to drive my mom to work and my dad says “Uh, there’s no steering wheel.” Turns out someone had come during the night and stripped specific parts from the car. Like they were looking to fill a particular parts list.
The car wasn’t trashed and things like the stereo were not taken. It was obvious that professional thieves or mechanics did the work since it was meticulously done. Of course no prints or any other evidence left. We’ve always wondered if the dealership had some part in the theft either for themselves or were supplying info to other shops. Makes you wonder.
