Exclamation GT3 Dealer Allocation Thread

Figured I'd get the ball rolling by starting this thread. So who's already got the call for their allocations?

Martin are you selling one of the cars for the .2 GT3? Thinking of selling the GT4 for one.

Worth asking from which dealer/country as well? If folks are willing to share.

Allocations already out? If so what is the build dates? The engine got me thinking to upgrade the GT4.

No call, but my dealer is totally incompetent. The only saving grace is I'm #1 after the 918 customers. Not sure if both are still in the program, but I think so. They are both very wealthy collectors.

My dealer is pretty useless too. I am number #1 but they don't get many cars and they will be little help with information if past history is any indication

I am #1 on the list @ msrp (after 918 guys) but the dealership said they are still waiting on allocations to be released. They said I can submit a build but it won't mean anything until I'm actually assigned an allocation.

Yeah, the only issue with such dealers are that it's an arm wrestling match to do things other dealers do as standard protocol. Things like show me my config, when am I locking options etc? Now imagine asking them to push your allocation down the line until the manual transmission comes available, that won't happen simply because it's easier for them to just flip your MSRP allocation to the next highest bidder- argh!!

This is why I have a back-up allocation, but it's 6th at a small dealer.

Here's hoping manual is available with first allocations or soon after!

I'll keep the GT4 until I replace it with a GT4RS PDK.

Local dealer says when we get one we will announce - in other words ask a high price and let it sell to the highest offer.

It's worse than the Ferrari dealers.

If you're #1 at sunset, it'll most likely be a pdk allocation. I'm #7 there and didn't bother to get in line at Bend porsche (maybe i should have)

Last update i got from sunset was that they is only one 918 owner at the top of the list

When people say that manual will be available in september. Do they mean september delivery or september build order?
