How can there be so many people who placed PTS orders after 1/19/18? My PTS order was from December, and dealer says itís a go for October build.

Anybody here have their order cancelled that was placed before Jan 19?

Really sorry to hear, Z- (about the PTS denial), but that ^^^ exactly is the spirit. You may not be able to have the cherry (PTS) atop the pie, but you are gonna have one helluva cake to eat regardless!

Unfortunately if your build is in October it probably will not be eligible for PTS. My understanding is Porsche is trying to finish 991.2 production at this time and PTS will slow their ability to do this.

This is why I no longer bother to purchase new porsches, too much bs with the dealer network and the process in general.

This PTS cancellation is just a poke in the eye to the NA market and will only reinforce the +30k for PTS on used GT's. Plenty of euro PTS.

Also was told the stop was due to the three top colors for 991.2 GT3 were as follows

PTS
PTS
Chalk.

She he said she was not sure what color PTS but the top two selling colors were from the PTS selection. Too much interest. She said she had five other calls to make that were v250 cars that now would not happen unless your paint had already been purchased by Porsche and was build date before end of February.

hmm. I was told by PCNA that my pts paint is ordered but my build date is in April.
also hard to believe that the two top colors are pts. see here:

unfortunately that means you no longer have PTS and need to reconfigure your build

$13k for paint, overpriced IMO. But, then again I'll be more concerned about how tires are holding up, paint chips from debris, and which pads to put on next.

Who wants to bet the PTS on the RS is north of $17-18k? And there will be another line up waiting on those.
