I'm sure all the speculators who will tuck them away and then job them on for a profit will be delighted, along with the three actual enthusiasts who managed to get in the queue. Rolling Eyes

2011 Porsche 997 Turbo S

It's all rather academic really, if you really want one as a track car, then I suggest you order a LHD one from the continent...

Otherwise, it's not really getting rave reviews, for it's everyday ride comfort on UK roads imo..

...imho, i'd email the dealer and try and get in the queue for a PTS colour.
The window for that will open first in the States, the UK window will then
open very soon afterwards....but it'll only be live for three weeks or so. My tip
would be mid May. Grin

Ps...trust me on this, your dealer will not have a clue when this is likely to
happen. There is though, a far better range of colours available from launch
which is a good call.

Not brave enough for PTS. I always have GT Silver for my 911's but fancied a change.

Hoping to receive my PEC invite before lock down so I can see what the colours are like in the flesh.

I think my dream car would be a new GT3 in Maritime blue or Viper green-
Don't the pts colours normally have even better residuals?

Curious to know what the reviews say about the manual - seems we'll need to wait until Sept/Oct to find out!
