    No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    I placed my order for a GT3 in March. I have just been told by the sales manager of my dealer that Porsche cannot fulfill my order. They apparently have more orders than the number of cars they are willing to produce. He has offered me a refund of my deposit or, of course, an alternative 911 with early delivery date. Also, the salesman I dealt with has left!
    Not sure what to think of this. I am wondering why it has taken my dealer two months to advise me this? It it true?? Will it be any different at any other dealer?
    Anyone experienced this same problem? Any ideas?

    I wish you would of posted earlier. There was a silver gt3 fully loaded one that was available and did make a referral. He bought the car. Are you in the US, if so I can look into it for you. There might be one or two available.

    He is in Essex in the UK....

    Sorry, can't help you with that. Good luck though.

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    Lu which dealer told you this
    I got a 997GT3 from your local colchester OPC only 2months ago

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    I put my order with Brendan at Colchester. He has now aparently gone and I was told by sales manager mr Coleman.
    How long was you on order for? If yours is a GT silver vcar then Brendan sent me a phot of it just before you collected.

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    I was told today that the Uk allocation for MY08 had still not been made, so I guess there is a chance that some dealer might still have fewer orders than their allocation.

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    Will, thanks. Who were you told by?

    the salesman I'm getting my GT3 from

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    Lu yes mine is the Gt silver one

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    Robbo, how long was yours on order for? Any ideas?

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    Lu i placed a letter of intent for my GT3 a very long time ago,around about 2 years before delivery.What colour and spec are you after?

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    Hi Robbo, My spec is or was (?) Tracking, Xenon lights, sport Chrono, PCM, cruise, thicker wheel, soundpackage plus, telephone module, plus some other bits. Colour wise, i was thinking white or Atlas grey. I am going next week to showroom to have a chat about it. Suffice to say not happy that it has taken two months to say they cannot get me a car. What is strange is that the salesman spoke to Porsche direct since I wanted an aluminium gear knob (which I think is in the turbo). Surely they would have said no GTPounds available at that time? Also, surely Porsche would have given a directive saying "Do not take any orders". Rather than "take orders and we will see". The Porsche web site still has the GT3 with a price list. Therefore, according to the website, it is still for sale! In fact the web site has been updated by the Turbo Cabriolet...so it is easy to say sold out on the website but they have not. What do you think?

    How is yours going? Have you hit the front spolier yet? Do you like it? If I knew how to attach photos, I would send you photos of your car that they sent me.

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    you could try to source one from europe

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    Try this guy http://www.thegallerydenver.com I recall at one point he had 2 GT3s with ceramics on his showroom at MSRP.

    Re: No More GT3 Orders? Help Please

    Thank for your help but I am in England and that garage is in Colarado USA
