Any sense of how deep the order list is for the Turbo/Turbo S? Are there sufficient allocations for the dealers?

As I don't think there's been a big crowd 'hanging on the fence' in anticipation of the 991 Turbo S, and in view of broad sentiments the car is overpriced, I doubt there's much of a waiting list. I think dealers will be trying to sell this car. Of course, the first to arrive will be gobbled up by the 'gotta have it' folks, but otherwise I think its going to be a slow sell. Id further speculate there are a few other 'game changers' in the works. One is the 991 platform has to be nearing its 'end', especially with the great looking, though underpowered, mid-engine cayman on the rise. Another, price related pull, is one can buy a Ferrari 430 Spyder for about $150K that will titillate owners for decades versus the quick flips associated with so many overpriced and leased turbos.

How do you figure? The 991 platform is going on two (2) years, so far. You'd expect a 991.2 mid-cycle refresh soon, but it's hardly coming to an end.

I was referring to the 911, not the 991 per se. Having had 911 models for 40 years, the most recent being a 993TT, 996 RufTT, and 997TTS, I just feel it's lifetime is coming up, delayed largely by brilliant techno-gizmos to correct for a heavy powerplant over the rear wheels.. In the end, Porsche will shine among the sports car/exotic crowd with mid engine cars in the future. Just IMHO.
