Had the phone call from the dealer today offering deal for my 991.2 at 2.5yrs 50k miles and reserving order for the 992 for 1st April collection... release and confirmation of build detail February.

Roll on the Nov LA motor show.

Am liking that the base carrera will have the same wide body as the rest of the range.

You got way more details than me!
I’ve just pre ordered a 4S and been told “2nd quarter”.
Already a little bit impatient!

They want to wait till delivery month for a part ex value on mine.

Yup, needless to say nothing firm, but a sensible ball-park.

Sideways, that's the way OPC's play it. I placed my order for 997 in first quarter 2004 when images appeared in Autocar magazine. They will offer you buttons on your Porsche trade in and there attitude is "You owe us £70K next week its up to you how you pay it so take px or bank transfer full amount".

Ha! So right Gary.
I’m tempted to offer it around earlier and force their hand. I have other cars so a month or two in March/April without a 911 won’t be too hard.

Indeed. And for one obvious reason, 1st April 2019 might, or might not look very different for UK businesses, particularly one importing from the EU.

Anyone know if the Manual will be 6-speed or 7-speed?

If they go back to 6-speed and get rid of the "slant", it would be a lot more tempting than it's predecessor 991.

I don't know the answer but 7 is better than 6... right! Grin

991R went back to 6, so I think 6 must be better.

Deposit placed... undecided if to order for summer or to wait for 1st sept and swap out at the 3yr point of my 991.2... Build slot queue for now...

I'm thinking GT Silver, with black leather, contrast yellow stitching, yellow seat belts.

Just sent my spec to the dealer, but I cant decide on the wheels... i'm torn between Carrera Exclusive Design wheels and the Classic's.
Straw poll of opinions?

Engaging full Tigger mode!

I went Classics with Matt black inside paint d. I liked them all and found it was really hard to make a decision. Great problem to have I suppose!

That’s great news! When do you have to lock your spec by? My lock date is mid feb and build in March with delivery start of April.

I’m torn between getting an S in April, or a Carrera in June.

Same dilemma as I had last time... the car is for road use, I won’t be taking it on a track, the Carrera is blooming blisteringly fast!... for the extra £10k, aside from the top trumps of a bit more boost pressure to add about 40 horses, with the body shells now the same, what do you get for the extra £10k?

I’ve specced up an S on the configurator, to be same spec as my current car... list is £93, plus £12 of bits, takes it to £105. My 991.2 car was £79, plus £12 of bits taking it to £91. So I assume the price increase of 992 is about £4K so I have a choice of £95 or £105... for practically the same car.

Such a dilemma.
