Default What Message is Porsche sending GT buyers with the new touring pkg

I believe Porsche may be trting to "fix' the problems we have had. Heres my theory, people couldnt get the R, they felt they were abandoned and the best stuff was given to a few and why were the rest of us undeserving? So they made the touring pkg. You said you wanted it, well you got it. no PDK because its supposed to be a slightly slower on the track but more involving car..right? That means no PDK. You want PDK, too bad this is what you wanted so here it is. R people, no whining, it lacks the special body work you got. Speculators and flippers, too bad for you. if you really want this experience here it is. if you demanded it and now you don't buy it that means you were disingenuous when you demanded it.
Another variant means,more GT car production, without "increasing production" so the GT3 its still a limited product but I'm sure they will increase production. This way they can increase production stabilize supply and demand without shaking things up to much, kind of a stealth production increase.
This way everyone is happy, more profits to Porsche less to flippers, plus despite what some say I believe the GT3 is a money maker. as expensive as a turbo with a lot less content . Anyone else think the same?

^If they increase production fantastic, but I doubt it's going to happen as they seem to be physically limited (no?)

I posted in the other thread, but I think this will simply exasperate the issues faced by enthusiasts in the US. ADM fees and Flipping...

Exactly the opposite. Porsche just created another Eldorado for flippers. Production it limited to line capacity. And capacity is now divided with one more GT car. Good luck with GT3 allocation for MSRP from now on.

They will not increase production. They have a limited line capacity and this line is shared by all GT cars AFAIK.

If they could increase production we would all have our allocations. But most of us don't.

they could produce more cars by changing the mix of cars in S-Zuffenhausen, there is a limit to the number they can build overall, in the past they've added shifts for demand, I suspect supplier issues in the just in time production process is what really limits production of GT cars

This will in fact make it even harder to get any GT3's. Lots of guys will option this way and therefore take track guys out of the possible GT3 wing slots.

but wouldn't it be insane to offer another variant of a car that you can't keep up with demand?

Nope. It creates a hype and hype helps selling more Panameras, Cayennes and Macans.
