As far as my allocations being affected selling outside our area that is not true. Posting up information on allocations and availability in the appropriate car forum made more sense to me as how many people are in the Market Place forum looking for a new car to order? That is my take on it and of course I understand that this forum should not be spammed for business in these forums. I did post up a beautiful British Racing Green Boxster in the Market Place section which seemed appropriate for an in stock car. Hopefully some of my posts on here are informative and helpful for guys looking to place orders and have questions on availability and delays on options as well as news on upcoming products.

I have one. Sonnen is a platinum sponsor and pays for the privilege of posting we are hardly being "spammed"

You are not even a member

Just my humble opinion.

I believe their is great value to Porsche Dealers, and for that matter Porsche Executives, Technicians and Marketing executives being involved in our forums. It is only through this interchange that the opinions of
Porsche owners can be brought to the attention of those who could actually influence future models, pricing, delivery times, options and specifications. I am grateful that any dealer staff takes the time and effort to read, evaluate and respond to our often conflicting rants and often unwarranted criticism. For owners this forum is an enjoyable and information-sharing passion. For Porsche employees it is an extension of working hours often coming at a sacrifice in time otherwise spent with family and friends,
for which I am most grateful. I look upon the posting of an available unit of a new model with very limited availability for the convenience of our members seeking early delivery as a service to the forum
for which we should be thankful and in no way do I consider this as remote from our own interests.

FastLaneTurbo, I actually agree with your thoughts and viewpoint. My comments focused on the use of the forum to simply sell cars. It was in no way to discourage the exchange of valuable information, knowledge and opinion. Sales people like Brett at Sonnen have provided excellent insight and opinions and this is what these forums are for.

Carcommander, not sure what being a member (or not) or a Platinum member has to do with the discussion at hand....just my humble opinion.

What Porsche needs is a Track Turbo version with all the performance options
of the Turbo S but with a firmer "track-tuned" suspension, 5 Lug Wheels and
Steel Brakes ($2,500 vs $25,000 for brake changes) otherwise you give the DD 997 TTS owner little reason to upgrade his ride. And the new "Track Turbo S" should be offered at a commensurate reduction in price equal to the pricing differential between those removed "upgraded" components, making that track version comparable in price to the outgoing 997 TTS.

I've been on the Porsche Configuration Website and there are two options for "5 Lug Wheels" for the TTS. I assume the car can be configured without center lock wheels.

I see no harm with them advertising a slot, it benefits all interested in the car. Keep it up.

It can, but you don't save any money, so you're essentially still paying for the CLs on the TTS.

With regards to dealers posting allocations, I really appreciate it for the lower volume cars. Even if I decide not to buy from them, at least it's helpful in negotiating with your local dealer(s).

Yes, but their is no price reduction when you opt for the 5 Lug wheel option whenbuying the Turbo S while the CL wheels are an additional $3,835 on the non-S Turbo. Similarly, the PCCB Brakes add $9,210 to the Turbo. These two undesired (to me) included options on the Turbo S total $13,045. if I could eliminate both of them, with their price deducted, The Turbo S price would fall from $182,050 to $169,005. IMHO, I believe the increase in Turbo unit sales
would more than make-up for the loss of option revenue. If those options were deducted, and the price remained unchanged (as it is now), my additional loss of future resale value added to what is already a rapidly depreciating asset would kill the sale for me.

My car has been recently (a couple of days ago) delayed from Sept. 26th to Sept. 27th. (this is the day production is completed). This is only one day, so I don't think that the Turbo/Turbo S production has any issues. I expect to get it on Oct. 5th or 7th. , depending on how the dealer will "handle" the Oct. 5th embargo.

We have not seen any delay in 991 Turbo production and in fact my first two "Launch" edition 991 Turbo S models will be arriving in 4 weeks! We have a black/ black car and a black/ black-red model available if you want to get one before the ordered cars and are happy with the configuration. Pm or email me if you want the build sheets guys.

Default Turbo now on order due to posting on this thread

First post here - I was actually getting a little discouraged by lack of Turbo allocations at another dealer I had been talking to for several weeks. Nothing, nada. Then Presto! I see Brett's post while scanning through Rennlist, and I took his allocation. I for one appreciated that he posted on this thread.

Build is below- any/all comments or suggestions are welcome. Although if I make any other changes I fear Brett may jump off the Golden Gate Bridge at this point! Rennlist forum has been invaluable in figuring out what I want on this car. Target delivery late Jan/Feb.

Nice Build!!! A great combination of Max performance with Convenience and unique Design goodies. Congratulations!!!
Make sure Brett delays his jump at least until you get your car by offering to drive him to the Golden Gate Bridge with an E-Ticket Ride in your new Turbo.
