Again, just be sure you drive a bit in the LWBs before you discount them as uncomfortable and just cool looking. Sitting in them for just a few minutes at a dealer can be very misleading.

I you were Porsche and you intended to cease production of the NA GT3 and RS on 12/31/17, the smart thing would be to not broadcast it to anyone. After all the flipping criticism they've taken, if...

Meh. I'm paying $10k over for a configurable allocation and I don't have a problem admitting it. The car's easily worth what I'm paying for it. And even with the premium it'll still be cheaper...

Exactly. Getting a bloated dealer spec car at MSRP is the same thing as paying a moderate ADM, unless you're one of those people who just has to have the fusebox cover wrapped in leather.

That comment from your dealer makes no sense. There is no such thing as a Touring allocation. Any allocation could be either.

I didn't say I was going to be one of those angry white men. But, trust me, there are millions of them. Moot point though, because none of this nonsense is going to happen in our lifetimes.
