    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

    John H:

    Just had an apologetic dealer on the phone saying it's unlikely my GTS will be ready for the December pick-up they had anticipated...

    I ordered the car over 2 months ago and apparently the build hasn't even started yet...

     

    Does this mean you will be liable to the 20% VAT?

    Seems that way.  Sad thing is there's not a damn thing I can do about it  except maybe cancel the order..Smiley

    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

    John, this may be silly BUT maybe the dealer would be willing to absorb some (all) of the VAT?  I'd certainly ask them.
    Joost - yes, couldn't even settle down for my afternoon nappy today.

    Hey Don, welcome to the club and many congrats on your decision. Of course GTS or Turbo is a thing of personal taste but if power matters there's no substitute. Very interesting and tasteful combo!

    Perhaps you could try to make a compromise deal with the Porsche Centre so that not all  additional tax is passed on to you.

    Please don't cancel, though!

    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

    Hi J.,
    Turbo S will be here today!!  It's being trucked to me and should arrive sometime this afternoon.  They'll also pick up my trade.  Dealer (five hours away) does this at no cost to me and I like it because it doesn't put extra miles on a new vehicle.

    I'll be happy to post some pics BUT I'll add them to the Turbo S forum here so I'm not hijacking the GTS Forum.

    Good luck everyone with their GTS, coupe or cab, it's a truly clean and beautiful 911!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wasn't really serious about cancelling....just feeling really pissed off at the OPC's lack of communication and knowledge of the manufacturing schedules..

    I did sound out another OPC who told me they weren't expecting a demo until January!  The best they could offer was a January build and February delivery.

    I'll be doing everything I can to get the best bottom-line deal....just have to be a bit more patient I suppose.

    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

    I'm really gutted for you John  Reminds me of when production of my car was delayed at the last minute.

    Unfortunately, I highly doubt the OPC will contribute anything towards the increased VAT amount - since it is a delay on the part of PAG not PCGB or the OPC. It really sucks to get stuffed with an extra 2.5% having thought you had avoided it.

    Hang in there - you'll enjoy the car when it comes

    Thanks for the video - Joerg seems to be pleased with the GTS, but he is employed by Porsche after all..

    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

    Have managed to strike a reasonable deal with my OPC.

    They are prepared to cover the increase in VAT and have upped the trade-in allowance on my current car to compensate for the later delivery.

    Seems a fair deal - and the 2011 registration will also help at re-sale.

    Car dealers can't afford to lose sales these days, besides your excellent negotiating skills of course Smiley
