Adrian
Unless you have a history of GT cars from new at your dealer of choice, then I highly doubt you'll get a chance. Even if you offered to pay up front in full you'd still struggle at a guess.
I hope you find a sympathetic dealer principal that will listen to why you should get an allocation.
Good luck Thumb

I'd say yes by about 4 years, half a dozen Macans and and 2 gt3's.

More chance of Lord Lucan serving you coffee at Starbucks.

Gosh - I thought it would have been much worse than that, probably 10 x 911's but the most credible explanation I've yet heard involved Freemasonry and funny handshakes! worship

Maybe I’m confused but at 2x the price of a regular gt3 and nearly 2,000 in the making, I would have thought it’s easier to buy but obviously what do I know

I have no problem cashing the purchase but seems like they prefer to let it go to flippers or worse, sometimes flipping themselves.

Would it be helpful if I put up a trade in like a 993RS or a 993 turbo S? Or would I get ripped off to the extent I should forget about it too haha

You would think so but I was told yesterday that an OPC that would normally have several 'premier' customers in line for a car like this had been allocated only two.

interesting indeed

997 they only made 356 vs 1964 on the 991 and at a huge premium too. Maybe the world is in a very good shape at the moment. What trade war. What brexit. Show me the speedster!

Talked to the dealer last week, he said if you’d bought c.40 Porsches over the years you *might* be able to get *on the waiting list* for a *possible* allocation. He thought it was mad as well...

All of them have been allocated - happened last week.

I know some 918 owners who didn't get one this time either. And the grey market is only about 50k over at the moment, so not really sure it is a flipper market, because that grey market could evaporate very quickly.

Even if there were some left, it would be pointless trading what you suggested. I suspect subject to spec you could pick up one up for not much overs and frankly paying the overs is cheaper than buying short terms 10 cayennes etc etc.

what Ken said, easier enough to pick one slightly over list rather than having to buy a Cayenne, Macan, Carrera T, GT3 and GT4 at inflated prices with weak trade in prices

Fascinating... looks like Porsche priced this one dead on.

Yes I didn’t think ~2,000 at £211k would create a huge flippers market

And very surprised 918 owners didn’t get one

I just wish I had the luxury to spec my own car rather than buying someone’s used when I’m paying £2xx but oh well it is what it is

What’s the U.K. share likely to be? Maybe 40-50 cars?

According to PCGB, the following numbers were imported into the U.K. for previous speedsters:

3.2 Carrera - 64 (2104 built)
964 - 12 (936 built)
993 - 0 (2 built)
997 - 19 (356 built)

https://www.porscheclubgb.com/regions-registers/registers/classic/speedster

Given those numbers, there’s probably no more than 50 coming to the UK.
