Brett, are you getting any sense of why people aren't as excited about the TT and TT-S? Is it the pricing, or are the initial buyers preferring to custom order cars?

I think most buyers would prefer to custom build their cars. The two builds we have coming in I built to make them I think easier to sell. I have 5-6 clients that are actually waiting on driving the new model before replacing their current cars...which may never happen if we have all of our allocation pre-sold....

Do you have any clients that are interested in the Turbo instead of the Turbo S? I was at my dealership here in Switzerland this afternoon and they have sold 19 Turbo S so far and not one Turbo. I was wondering if that applies to the U.S. market too.

The car drives fantastic BTW. I drove the Turbo S last week and I was totally blown away, against my own predictions.... I didn't like Turbo 911s untill now.

I think when you spec the Turbo with all the goodies that come standard on the Turbo S, the price difference is so small, that it is attractive to upgrade to the Turbo S. Unless someone doesn't want the PCCBs. The switch from CL wheels to the Turbo wheels is a no cost option on the Turbo S, so that can't be a problem. As a bonus you get the additional power and a nicer exhaust note and the option to get the two-tone black-carrera interior.

My salesman didn't expect to sell much Turbos. And I think he is right.

Funny. I ordered a plain Turbo with center locks. The dif was 25k. I did not want the ceramics. If I had I would of just gotten the S. Interesting that the center locks are a 3.5k add , I think, on a turbo but not a credit on a Turbo S.

That's a bigger difference than I would expect. You did also opt the LED, PDCC and Sport Chrono? Without the ceramics, the price difference here is about 20k, but with the ceramics it's only 7k.

I'm planning on ordering mid-next year,....and mine will be a Turbo only, no S.

Don't need or want the ceramics. Nor do I like the yellow calipers for them.
Don't want PDCC (too artificial feeling, weight & complexity) After trying it several times I decided against it on my 991 S, don't miss it, same here.
Don't want the center locks. Sure I can remove them for "no cost", but if I decided to get them on the plain Turbo I'd pay $4K for them,...so why can't I get a $4K discount without them on an S? Gotta luv Porsche.
520 HP is just fine with me, don't need the extra 10th of a second here or there.
Planning on ordering the "black" xenons for the look, not the LEDs. Wish they had black look LEDs, but not yet.

Sport Chrono is the only thing standard on the TTS that I will get on the TT.

So for me there is a pretty big difference in price when I spec the two out to my liking,....and most if not all of that difference is the stuff I don't need or want,....so why pay for an S.

Not surprising, would have made more sense to delay the S for a year.

I got PDCC and Sport Chrono. I did not get the LED lights. I have ceramics on my 458. I don't think they offer anything over steel brakes on the street and one rock or tire change can ruin your whole day. They have a certain cool factor I guess.

I thought it odd too. Maybe they thought the appetite for 200k turbos would be greatest at the launch. If they waited a year a lot of the demand would be filled by a standard turbo.

Short life cycle on the 991 is the reason. That's why we have Turbo S, Targa, GT3, GT3RS, GT2, GT2 RS all coming out very soon.
