Just posted interior shots.
Thanks Bobby! Oh man, that is gorgeous too!! Yeah there is no bad choice (minus yellow haha). Only diff is mine is (will be) a hardtop and i chose Carrera classic wheels, but liking yours too. Loving that black/bordeaux and nice touch with the red top too. Very classy. So we have urban chic vs classy. Decisions, decisions.

Thanks Larry! I’m very happy for those of us who finally got their 992 but just sorry to read what @Als992 wrote: « SA told me yesterday that it's getting worse before it gets better. They had 20 or so fewer cars allocated than expected this year » 😏

My own SA told me that the supply chain is now completely « broken » and they receive NO more updates from Porsche. We were lucky in our bad luck!
yeah i think i was after all you guys with my deposit in Nov'21. Still no available slot. He also told me they took deliver of ZERO sports cars last month....that's crazy. Encouraging that once you do get a slot, it moves quickly. I may need you guys as my support group.

You’re absolutely correct about the yellow, could never do that! Choices choices,. I love contrast in things that’s why I did the red convertible top with the GT silver. Make your choices carefully! I’m already thinking about the next one, no time soon but I really like that shark blue and that other deeper red color Porsche has.

I looked at the pics again as my iPhone shows them smaller . I love the plate too !! I can't get yrralis1 (too many digits) . I also think its really cool how they have a celebratory car cover unveiling . I have seen pictures of some elaborate deliveries . Here its pretty straight forward . When I took my car they let me know things are though. I know these guys for years and see how tense they are .
They have to make their money on used cars so your trade in can become desirable . Thats what had surprised me with your Boxster . They kept you in ,limbo so long after you gave it to them. I think they key is early deposits . I have seriously considered a 992.2 GTS deposit . Its just so far out and I am not so young anymore . Plus its expensive and getting any cheaper . Also note that I end up buying two at a time. My wife's Macan is adding miles . I have been driving it more too . It was a lifesaver in the storm . WE had 9 inches of rain in 24 hrs .. People are stalling out everywhere . You guys have the snow and we have the tropical stuff . My new car is right back in there garage and my 997 is at the highest point of my driveway . I am not in flood zone luckily bur I take no chances plus its postponed where a roof tile cant hit it easily if the wind kicks up.

Congrats again .
If you're seriously considering changing model in 2-3 years, you should definitely put your name on that waiting list. No obligations. You can skip your turn if not ready when the time comes. In Montreal, they only asked for a 1K deposit. But IMO, you won't get a call before 2 years!

That’s a good point thanks for the advice! How do you like the manual transmission?

I just Love it! But I’m biased because I think it just LOOKS GREAT! :love: Drove only 75 miles since I left the dealer yesterday but I can say

1. Lovely well-weighted short shifter
2. Crisp solid shifts
3. Clear engagement point (midway)
4. Gearing seems fairly long but I don’t mind
5. Clutch pedal is ideally suited

LOVE IT!

Its hard to commit to a big ticket purchase so far out . I dont know about you guys but this entire order/ wait/ plus the idea that the lack of ADM was even stressful for the dealership was totally emotionally draining . Buying a car used to not have so much drama . Thus 911 exhausted me and the thought of singing up for more hits a hard pause in me. Even buying a Macan which may have to be replaced before my 911 has me pausing .

It does make things interesting for sure!

I have been busy with the storm clean up at the lake. Lost 15 trees. It helps not to think about my delivery date. Heading to Miami next Saturday and will enjoy my cab there for couple of weeks! Hopefully no more storms there….
