Exactly. Initially I was looking at a second cab, 992 4s cab. But once I realized the price was GTS category, it made me re-think it. No need for two cabs and GTS is a lot of car.
Since I only have ONE 911😉, I think the cab offers the best of both worlds. With the top up it’s remarkably quiet, has the shape and drives like a coupe. Of course, when that first sunny, somewhat warm day comes along, down comes the top, and I remember why I bought a cab in the first place. Plus, I'm having a hard time resisting this:

I found this post on Reddit dated Feb 2022. This guy is from Dallas-Fort Worth Area. Seems like things will get worse before getting any better.

Advice on finding Porsche 992 S Allocation


« Just started the process of shopping for an allocation to build a 2023 911 Carrera S. Over last two days I've contacted the two Porsche Dealerships closest to me and was told I could be added to a list with a 2-3 years wait. After initial responses, they now starting to become unresponsive to my emails ( which to some extent I understand). I wanted to seek any advice on what I can do here if I'm interested to get an allocation for a next year build? Additionally I'm in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area if that's helpful. »

Not very encouraging for those pulling the trigger now! 🥵

I was told a year if I put a deposit for a Macan. My salesman tends to round up so we probably would be less. I have al not dared to discuss in 911 because I just bought one but when I did I was simply told put a deposit . The GTS was not even announced yet. I considered a Touring and I would’ve been number 46 on the list. I gave both cars thought. I even thought about keeping my car and not going through with this. I’m glad I did but I don’t know if I’m ready for a second round with a Macan. Never in my life did I follow boats in the ocean and wonder if I was going to get the slot or have somebody try and take it away from me. I am so glad my dealership came through. They made a lifetime customer from me

That’s a long time to wait for a car but it may be worse with supply chain than we ever though. So many people still not wanting to work or left work doesn’t make it any better. I would think a deposit would be mandatory now…anyone ask you for one? My deposit on my 911 was only $2,500.

I’m thinking of our new member @DoctorFreeze. Maybe he will get his base model a little faster but the waiting period for a 911 seems to be 2-3 years now!!! 😏 Wonder what his dealer told him.

Macan and Cayenne allocations are easier to get. My SA recently said less than a year. After the 911 saga, I decided to keep my Macan S MY17 a little longer. Since I split my mileage on 2 cars during the year, the Macan only has 37K miles on it and runs perfectly. The next one will probably be electric. 😱

That is a beautiful car. Even though I can't afford an S for my "entry-level" Porsche 911, I think my base cab will look just as good. Oh, I'm also seriously considering a change of color from GT Silver to Gentian Metallic Blue. Your photo has reinforced my potential change. I do have one question for everyone, should I spring for the Sports Exhaust package or not?? It's another $3k! 😭

I placed my order in early June and just got a call yesterday that I'm next in line for a slot (I assume that is the same as an "allocation?") My SA originally told me it could take as long as a year to get my Porsche when I first ordered it last month, but he seemed confident it will be less than that given they cleared a good batch recently.

My refundable deposit was also $2,500.
