    UK waiting time & deposit

    I'm intending to put my name down this week on a 997TT but dont want to take delivery until the end of next summer. As they want Pounds10k deposit, how long can I wait before putting down such a large deposit. Anyone negotiated a smaller deposit? Dealer says this is too put off speculators.

    10K is a large deposit, I put down $2000 in the USA for around Jan delivery.

    Pounds10K is standard. You could wait another 3 months max to be safe.

    Spoke to my dealer again and he recommended end of August/early Sept - ie 12 months wait.

    Re: UK waiting time & deposit

    I put Pounds10k down in May 2006, expecting delivery October/November 2007. The deposit is refundable right up until you spec the car (about 3m ahead of delivery) at which point you pay another Pounds10k. You can get both deposits back if you don't want the car when it arrives and the dealer manages to sell it for you (as if that'll be a problem!). As a depositor you get a half-day training session on the road and at Millbrook proving ground. There's some attempt by PUK to weed out speculators/time-wasters. BTW all UK demonstrators are manual and cobalt blue (=32 cars). Second BTW, for interest to our US friends, a decent spec'd car with PCCB, sport chrono etc., will be around Pounds107k = $204k at today's rate (courtesy GWB's economic policy).
