    Re: 992 GTS

    The JD Powers survey confirms this. Porsche has gone from being near the top to 29th.

    My GT3RS front splitter ripped again and I don't recall bottoming out. I've order a second and of course the cost has increased by 30%.surprise

    I damaged did the splitter on my recent C-4S  and the dealership replaced it for free. Very common problem, they said.

    Haha be glad yours isn't one of those active one like on the turbo S. 

    Those are hyper expensive.

    Next most expensive splitter would be the GT2RS one.

    Your GT3RS one shouldn't be THAT bad.........

    I still remember it was $200 for my 997 turbo S plastic lipSmiley

    How much did they charge you ? That splitter is around 300 $ and is changed in 10min

    Sad story. Replacing my first splitter required me embarrassing the parts department. Initially they quoted me $850. I bulked. Thankfully in an email exchange with Grant he told me of another dealer that selling it for $280. I then confronted the parts department with the quote from the other dealer. Their response was $850 is their price but since I’m a valued customer they will sell to me I believe $300. My  service rep was so embarrassed he had it install at no cost to me.

    Fast forward to today and my dealer quoted $480 for the splitter. All dealers in the US are quoting anywhere from $440 to $800. Installation is extra. Same splitter as before nothing different. An opportunity for dealers to make a few extra dollars. Smiley
     

    Mine will be installed this Tuesday.

    Now that you mention it, I have heard that all replacements parts have increased by 30% at the beginning of the year with no explanation. The WP front hood for the GT3 RS went from 19k to 24k. No wonder I had my car stolen to be most likely taken apart.

    It's a lot bigger and also engraved with the GT2RS characters.

    Re: 992 GTS

    Speaking of inflation and price increases at my local Porsche dealer:

    • Oil change in Spring 2021: $306
    • Oil change Summer 2022: $405

    Miles driven in between: 1,200.

    My GT3 has been built, it is sitting in a "post production warehouse" in Germany awaiting shipment to the UK. I did BTW ask if I could do European delivery and pick the car up in Germany. Unfortunately, the brilliant UK bureaucrats over here have not worked out post-Brexit how such an arrangement could possibly work and so Porsche gave me the "we regret to inform you that we are unable at this time to offer European delivery for UK based customers....". 

    Can I ask why you are blaming the UK bureaucrats for this, do you have details or is this just a (somewhat justified) remainer rant ? indecision 

    Unfortunately Porsche directly attributed it to uncertain new customs regulations post Brexit. FWIW, in Greece last year the lady wanted to ship something back from Milos, store owner said he could ship anywhere in the world, except for the UK. So something seems to be off…

    I haven’t spent more time analysing this to be honest but anecdotal experience seems to suggest everything is more difficult in the UK which I find slightly odd given one of the (not the only!) main drivers of Brexit was perceived excess regulatory encroachment from Brussels…. If one accepts that premise (and btw no one in Brussels spent anytime analysing this / no self introspection whatspever), then post Brexit, the English government should be consequently focussed on reducing regulatory complexity for society as a whole. I am not sure this has happened unfortunately…

    Finally, I would note I live here in England as a guest so I deliberately abstained from voting, didn’t pick a side. 


    Re: 992 GTS

    Lots of GT3s in my area.  Even two at my local dealer on consignment, for $297,000 each. Incredible. Now the new GT3RS  is coming  out on August 17. And my friggin GTS, on which I put a deposit in October of last year, it’s still not built. WTF.

    Re: 992 GTS

    Anybody know if Porsche will keep producing cars through August? In the past, the factory has traditionally been shut down. My GTS was scheduled to be built on July 5, but I don’t think it’s been built yet. My car is a 2022 model year. I know information is hard to come by, and there are lots of problems out there with supply chain, port strikes etc., I would appreciate any info if anyone has any.


    Re: 992 GTS

    Factory is shut down in August for summer break.

    Your frustration is palatable. Have you tried calling Porsche customer service in Atlanta. Give them you order number and they may have updated information. OR they may tell you discuss the matter with your dealer.Smiley

    Re: 992 GTS

    Thanks all.  My dealer rep (who has always been good to me) says he will know Monday or Tuesday if car has been built.  Got to say that everybody I know is frustrated about long delivery times— up to 16 months after initial order. I’m OK, just really curious.

    Re: 992 GTS

    Looks great, many congratulations! I’m thinking of going for black leather with crayon/chalk stitching too so it would be much appreciated if you could post some interior pics if you get chance.

    Re: 992 GTS

    Bad pic, will post more next week.  I think the stitching really brightens up the black.  I also got white tach and sport chrono.
