Anyone in the know regarding release date?

Also....

Has anyone managed to bag a slot for one of these?

And...

If any of you are thinking of buying.....

PDK or Manual?

Cheers

I'm after one. Definitely not bagged a slot. I wish.

My SE man at OPC said he'd fight my corner when he gets allocations. Not holding my breath. I'd be delighted if he manages it!

If I'm successful it'll be PDK all the way.

I'm hoping there'll be 2 new models announced:

- A GT3 (PDK only)
- A manual equivalent but branded something else and minus the rear wing, a 'cheapo' R for the masses... c'mon Porsche... you can do it .... brownie points to Porsche if they call it the ST

Very Happy

How many cars will they produce?
Im not a Porsche owner and never owned one or even a supercar and I would love the next gen GT3 but i think i have very little chance to none!!
Im holding out and if all else fails i'll wait and see if the GEN 1 prices are affected in anyway before getting one.
A few on the market but don't seem to be moving at the prices people are asking for them?

This month's EVO suggests this will be an 'unlimited' car - if this is really the case 'anyone' can have one, which has got to be the best possible news.

One would hope this would put off those people just buying one to flog it on and leave the build slots to folk that simply want one to drive. thumbsup

I hope you're right! It'll be like an RS for the masses. Well, not masses, but you get my drift... Smile

I hope the unlimited news is correct, I won't buy another new Porsche of any type until I can buy any model that I want. The stupid amount of R's they offered really p***ed me off when they knew how many people wanted them.

"Anyone " can buy a Macan. There's still a bit of a wait and there was a premium for a while i think. So maybe thats the type of unlimited supply Porsche are talking about.

Sadly I'm pretty sure that a lot of 'those people' will still blag the early build slots and sell them on at a profit to people that want to drive them as soon as they become available.

Anyone else will probably have to wait an extra 18 months.

Just spent a couple of days in the new panamera 4s diesel. Very impressed by it. Order one today and you will be lucky to see it this year Grin

Porsche have always played the 'supply and demand' game on all the previous GT cars.
I just don't see that changing anytime soon, and Andreas Preuninger has always
stuck like glue to the policy of very carefully limiting supply to enhance exclusivity...

Let's see.

Err..

and the public face of the Porsche GT department Andreas Preuninger has little sympathy. "We are not a hedge fund," shrugs Preuninger with characteristic bluntness. "We are a company that produces cars, we live because we sell cars and we have to make a profit to go on. So we cannot offer cars with a built-in promise to keep value for a small amount of chosen people, this wouldn't be fair."

Well, Volkswagen have to make an awful lot of money to cover 'Dieselgate' and
maybe Herr Pruninger has been told to open the flood gates..I just don't see it
happening.
Maybe its not also fair that his company car is half a million euros worth of
991R...as he's also one of the 'chosen people'.

I didn't appreciate the exclusivity until I looked into it more, its only now I can afford a GT3 but now I appreciate that and these cars will probably go to previous customers.
I can imagine it will be an amazing experience choosing the spec and ordering one of these cars then actually picking it up.....do dreams come true?!!

I've ordered and collected a GT3 new, it was no more of an experience than ordering a cayenne yet driving it was a better experience.

I'd prefer that they price the GT/R cars higher and make the amount they get orders for and then the price would make them exclusive and probably stop flippers.

Ive never been in the position to order a new car like a Porsche unfortunately.
Is it a 991 GT3 you have?
