    Here is more bad news for you, factory is closing from July 16th to Sept 14th.

    Even if they finish your car this Friday, no one will be validating it until Sept 17th.

    WTF? If Porsche holds off finishing these cars until September and ships them to the US, the Trump tariffs may be in place by then. If that happens many of us will not take delivery given another $50,000 will be added to the price.Smiley

     

    Welcome to the land where gouging people with money is acceptable. My own government just raised the sales tax on cars by 10% back in April. From 15% to 25%.

    MY dealer says the factory will close the 23th until August 17th. yes

    BTW, I still pay a sales tax of 8% on top of the tariff. Not an issue for me because I would never pay the tariff. I'll keep my 2GT3.

    Tell me about it. Smiley

    It's now a multi-tiered system.

    Above $150,000CAD, it's 25%

    Between $125,000 and $150,000, it's 20%

    Between $57,000 and $125,000, it's 15%

    Up to $55,000 it's 12% Up to $56,000 it's 13%, Up to $57,000 it's 14%

    You dealer don't have the correct information.

    I had asked them for a factory tour on the 23rd of July, I was told they are closed, so I asked about the 17th, and the reply is that the factory is closed from July 16th to Sept 14th.

    I doubt seriously that there will be a Trump tarrif on your car. I think we have seen him negotiate enough and we have seen enough cries of wolf to be a little less concerned. Especially with it being the wolf doing the wolf crying. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Factory is close from coming Monday till mid September. 

    One friend tried to make a tour visit this week and it was rejected.

    I think we should rent the space and put some cars together. I can take a couple weeks off. GT3 with manual, no wing and backseat - mid engined - anyone?  It will be like build a bear but for Porsche’s.  I think Whoopsy can make it happen.

    Nick, you do realize Porsche only have 2 factories right? Leipzig and Zuffenhausen.

    And GT cars are made on the exact same line as the other 911s, 718s in Zuffenhausen. 

    I was gonna take my son to visit Zuffenhausen as he is coming with me to Nurburgring to watch me race, but now he will have to settle for visiting the Museum instead.

    He'd told me he was reading from a bulletin dated July 5th. I spoke with PCNA and they didn't know anything. I sent an email to Germany. Hopefully I'll get a response.I should have sent it in your name to assure a response.smiley

    And Nick,

    a tax is a tax, they all suck whether a tariff, sales tax, income tax, fees on real estate and car registration, property tax......... but Germany will do anything to avoid a US car tariff.... Be glad the US has so many legal ways around sales tax and fees, those of us with GST/VAT are fk'd, just like you would be with a tariff...  in fact it would just true up US Porsche prices to globalSmiley

    Example:  GT3 NZ price [steel brakes]  $320,000 = $224,000 USD

    USD price [with PCCB] $163,000 USD + sales tax 0-8.25% depending on state or $163,000 to $177,000 about the tariff for you in CA....  with PCCB thrown in free, ignoring the tariff is charged pre sales tax for simplicity
