Ah well, I'll have to keep slumming it in my turbo. It's faster anyway.... Bitter? Moi?


This may sound a little nuts but I may be interested in a Gen 2 turbo / 991 GT3 trade of some kind. As much as I love my GT3, I do wish I could use it daily. Got an M5 for that at mo....

That's from a UK OPC I assume given your location is London ? That's the latest build slot I have read about being confirmed. I a hopefully due to get a 2018 build slot so am keeping an eye on this with some interest !

Porsche Retail gave an early slot to the nice guy who runs Omologato watches, who has never had a new 911 or Gt3 before.

Others we hear are being pressured into buying Turbo S's etc before even being considered ....

Anyone hoping for a PTS slot in the UK is going to be disappointed...no PTS cars coming to the UK. Sounds like Porsche GB policy. No idea why but gutted as I really wanted to go PTS!

It's from a European OPC apparently.

Also it's the way of the world now whether its handbags or cars....people that have a social media presence get things others can't.

Ford publicly stated that the criteria for an allocation for the new GT included among other things social media activity.

I was just on the configurator, and they aren't doing Riviera anymore Question

They do Miami blue instead which doesn't look anywhere near as good. Why did they do that I wonder... I'm sure you must still be able to get whatever colour you want though for double the price or something?

TBH the full PTS window should be open by now, maybe it's off the agenda ?

I'm surprised I always thought Rivi was a classic Porsche colour - clearly it was just me that thought that then Grin

I read somewhere else that PTS is a no-no on UK 991.2 GT3s and that only late build slots will be able to specify manual as well. It would be interesting to know if anyone could confirm or deny ... Question

Yup...no PTS slots in the UK. I've seen the e-mail that Porsche GB sent to OPC's...it sounded very final. They did the same with the R....no PTS for the UK but available elsewhere.

My guess is they is they just can't be bothered...as the cars will sell here anyway and they probably get something in return from Porsche AG for giving up their share of PTS slots.
