Hopefully they come to their senses.... Yesterday I gave my sales guy the ultimatum(in a nice way) that he needs to tell me within the next week if I will be getting one of their allocations. If not, I don't want to wait around for them and "maybe" get one, when I could be scouting out another allocation from another dealer.
There are 184 other Porsche dealers...it won't be hard to get one. Maybe the VERY first one won't happen, but you can get one down the line. Patience grasshopper.

this is the hard and unfun part of car buying, keep in mind if you don't play the games, eventually they will stop with the games. I make efforts to get my service done at dealer, I want a good relationship. I wihs Porsche would come out with each new model and omit it by time not numbers, like "we will only take orders for the next 3 mos" then you go to your dealer of choice, order your car and whenever its done you get it. No negotiation of price and payment up front or nonrefundable deposit would make this work easier. I'm glad I dont live in Cali!

I'm going to remain patient and keep adding to my piggy bank while I wait to get a GT4 and an RS. In the meanwhile, I'll have a 997.2 RS and race built Cayman to enjoy.

Worldwide
North America (PCNA)

Is it limited like the 997GT3 RS 4.0 was?
Not limited production. They're just building for a limited period of time, and will make as many as they can in that period. I was told to expect about half as many as regular GT3s.

Nothing comes easy in life...but if you want it, you'll put in the effort. If not, just pay $50k over and get on a 'list' today

I put my deposit more than two years ago. My SA told me he did not think he gets me a car.
I guess I enjoy my lowerly 997.2 RS.

918 owners get first right of refusal on allocations. That is well known. After that its the list where people have generally put down deposits. I work with two dealers that are (VERY LARGE) and have both sold 2 918s. They have both told me they expect 3-5 cars year one. However, final allocation numbers are not being given out to the dealers until April. At that point they will contact the list (after confirming the 918 owners) The one question that the dealers could not answer is whether or not any 918 owner sales would count against their allocation or be considered extra. They are hopeful it will not, and again I am only speaking about NA, not Europe.

I placed my order more than 2 years ago. Dealer put in my configuration and is just waiting to hear what date my allocation can be picked up.

I'm #1 on the list for a GT4 but the dealer just emailed me saying I could be #2 for the GT3RS. This isn't of interest (and out of my range...) but anyone interested in the location please PM me and I'll send contact info (this wasn't local for my GT4)

Wow! Unbelievable.

The local dealership here has a firm rule - they do not sell at list plus. You may have to pay list on a RS - but nothing over list.

They are a straight up honest dealership. Woodhouse Porsche of Omaha

My Tampa/St. Pete dealerships still want a $25k premium on regular GT3....I can only imagine what they will want for the RS. Forget it...I get driven away from Porsche farther and farther all the time.
