Congrats on your incoming 992!

New member here in So Cal & I had similar situation waiting on allocation on C2S build since early November '21 and was informed I'd probably be waiting until late this year '22 when I decided to pull plug and look at R8's. Luckily, I was fortunate enough to have allocation awarded from east coast dealer on GTS and now have production date scheduled for 2/25! Couldn't be more excited!
Welcome @leftwing818 and congrats on your incoming 992! To be honest, after more than 12 months waiting, I'm considering pulling the plug myself despite everybody's encouragement. Anyways, it's freezing cold here in Montreal so my shrink will help me wait a little longer. 馃槄

The last message from my dealer was that they "think" they could get me a build date for June! They probalby don't want me to look at the R8's! LOL!

I just started researching a 992 and am wondering in addition to having to wait a long time to get one - are the dealers marking them up a ton over MSRP or can I expect to pay what I build it for on the Porsche website

I'm here in Los Angeles and when I originally spec'd and desired a C2S local dealers were $20-40K over sticker!
I was lucky enough to get allocation for GTS from east coast dealer but only had to pay $10K over...a bargain imo.

Welcome @23109VC! Here in Canada, after overpromising and NEVER delivering, dealers are now finally telling the truth to their clients and the wait is 18-24 months!!! 馃槺 Can't help you regarding the ADM since it's illegal in Canada.

Maybe you could create a post as a new member and ask your fellow americans what are the most recent news. After delays, chips shortages, Covid and more recently a fire on a ship, who knows what the future has in store for Porsche enthusiasts. Getting an allocation from the East coast to LA like @leftwing818 was able to get seems miraculous!

Good luck!

Yes @CH61 miraculous is an understatement! I had been given the run around after placing a deposit on C2S back in Aug '21 for a early '22 promised allocation that turned into a "maybe late '22" allocation. I had already thrown in towel and started shopping for R8's when I was given guaranteed allocation for a '22 GTS which I now have starting production via TYD on Feb 25th! This is my first Porsche 911 so obviously I'm thrilled however @CH61 is correct that some states have very undetermined deliveries but perhaps luck will fall again out there!

You were definetely born under a lucky star @leftwing818 and I'm so happy for you! I still don't understand how you managed. Before the shortage, dealers used to swap allocations between them (GTS for a 4S cab, etc.) and everybody was happy. But not anymore since dealerships prefer to sell to their local customers. How can a dealer in the East Coast accomodate you in LA when his queue is endless? You must be VIP and don't know it! 馃槈

And now we hear that some members met disaster on the Felicity Ace...with no date of next possible production to replace it! See @Eagle1 on other thread (Fire on cargo ship affecting delays). Sad, sad news! :(

I am finally thinking of getting a Porsche after wanting one for many yeas. It took until I was about 50 to feel that I am in a position where I can responsibly afford one - not a Turbo car鈥ut a base or lightly optioned S. I called my Local dealer and was told that they only currently had an allocation available for a base car and to expect to pay approx $20k over MSRP. I am not going to buy until the end of the year and this car woudl be available in August, which is too soon. I will likely wait, and am hoping that prices will start to drop closer in Time to when I am ready to buy.

Anyone here think pricing may improve later in 2022 or early 2023? It鈥檚 nuts to think that a base could cost $120 when I know people who picked up ultra low mileage turbo cars several years ago for that kind of money.

Just took delivery of mt Carrera S Manual last Friday and if/when you decide you wont be disappointed! The 20K over is horrible! I actually did not pay sticker and they discounted the car. I ordered it last October and I have a relationship with my dealer for 6/7 years when I bought my first Porsche, Boxster 981. I would shop around but it will have to get better eventually. What goes up must come down!

That's a beautiful Carrera S @BobbyG congratulations! I love the red roof you chose. What color are the seats?

Welcome to the forum @AnnnnnZ! Yeah all the supply chain issues facing car companies still haven't fixed themselves. What color combo are you thinking for your Turbo?

I would definitely call other dealers and try and find one that won't charge a markup. I wouldn't pay $20K above sticker either.

Thank you! I'm happy that there's some place where we can discuss our dream cars together. I still didnt made up my mind on the color combinition yet. I really like the Mojave Beige color, but it only comes with two tone where the dashboard and some other parts is black, while I just prefer interior leather one tone color (just want to have a different color on the steering wheel too). So that would leave me to choose b/w Agave Green and Truffle Brown since I'm not considering Red. But for exterior, I'd definitely go with GT silver. Here is my code PNQMI8J0. Still have lots of lots of time to make a decision :)

I really like contrast so for me there was no hesitation and it鈥檚 a throwback to classic Porsche. You鈥檒l decide on the right one soon enough!
