If the deposit I was invited to place last week does turn into an allocation I'll be going "R Spec" though am tempted to go with the Cage because on 991.1 and 997.2 it makes such a huge difference to prices.

Objectively, if you have bucket seats then you have to be pretty insane not to specify Clubsport in my opinion. The reason is of course because it is one of very few things that Porsche do not charge you extra for and because the cage bolts in. If you don't want a cage : spec it, tell them to unbolt it before handover then store it along with the harness and extinguisher (which arrive at the OPC in boxes anyway). Should you resell : you have a Clubsport (which is important as a non-CS doesn't have the mounting plates for the cage) for the premium residual and it has cost you nothing more than a corner of your garage. Or you can sell the cage, harness and extinguisher on eBay for free money and your car still has the option code and cage mounting points if you subsequently sell.

That's a good point and certainly worth considering if my deposit turns into an firm allocation.

Main decision will be

Cage/No Cage
Folding/Full Buckets

First world problems!

Interesting my OPC sales chap said everyone who either has an allocation or is in with a shout wants a manual car.

Lol - if that is strictly true then perhaps the rare PDK version will be worth more on the used market Smile

...I agree overall though. Every forum I look at seems to be leading on the manual option. For me its the clear differentiator Porsche have at the moment over the rest of the market.

Evening chaps,

Can you spec parking sensors on the Gen 2? Trivial as it may sound but backing a GT3 into a tight space whilst peering through a cage and spoiler isn't much fun!

Oh and for what it's worth despite having an OPC 991.1 GT3 both my letters of intent fell on deaf ears. And yes, I would go manual if I had the choice! Thumb

No sensors but a reversing camera is available.
