Default 991 Turbo?

Has anyone heard when the 991 Turbo will be available and what the price will be? Not getting any information from the dealer.

I've read end of 2013 or early 2014. The 991 GT3 will be unvieled next month and is supposed to be available for order shortly thereafter with deliveries beginning later this year. I'd bet Porsche will show the TT within 6 months of the GT3 as it's the next model in line, but it's just a guess.

My dealer told me the new turbo will be quite expensive...said it will be easy to get the price to over $200k...up to $225k for a Turbo S.

Historically, it's been a 2 model-year delay until the Turbo.

I am told they will start ordering in August for delivery in December. Base around 150 then how big is your wallet? S with some options was about 165k. I would expect 10 percent more than that.

I think unveiling will be at Frankfurt in September, first deliveries coming after the 1st of the year, the more equipped / mass deliveries occurring later in the summer. I remember I ordered a 2007 back when they first became available and delivery was Feb 2007 and it was a $155k window, which was a lot back then. But then again we are hearing more rumors about Turbo S being available sooner rather than later.

Thanks for the info guys....For reasons most folks would agree with I hope the price for the turbo is around 150K and not 200K ....every once in a while I check the online configuration tool to see if the site is updated for the 991 turbo but I'm guessing now that won't happen until September ...thanks again!

It seems with every recent iteration of the 911 turbo, from 996-->997-->991 the base prices are going up roughly $20-$25k. That being said, the more loaded 997 turbo s coupe variants were in the $170-$180k range, it seems likely to think that a loaded 991 turbo with ceramics etc, will be close to $200k.

Base prices for the 997.2 TT are still on the Porsche web site. A base TT is $137.5K and S is $167K. The new 991 GT3 is rumored to be about about $140K which is almost 25% more than the old one. Assuming Porsche keeps more or less the same structure to their pricing, that would put a base 991TT at about $171K and an S at $208K. The estimates by Hammer911's dealer unfortunately seem in the ballpark.

Man, that's a lot of scratch, hope it's worth it.

Here's something that makes it look like it's just about ready to roll.

My dealer had similar figures from his regional rep. He said the "normal" cars price increase is 3% and all the "special" cars, GT3 and Turbo included, will have increase base price of 27%. The turbo with a few options will indeed be $200K.

That's a good article. It pretty much confirms the tri-turbo. Frankfurt will be interesting for sure.

27% price increase is a joke, that's crazy.

just heard from my dealer... it will indeed be Frankfurt and it will be an unveiling of the TURBO S simultaneously with the Turbo!!
There will be NO delay between the two, it could even be that the turbo will come one month AFTER the TURBO S
My pre-order stands, the car should be available end of year! and since they will both be available, it will be a turbo S!

It is not said to have such a momumental price-increase...
