    Thicker steeling wheel problem and GT-3 production delay

    I was just informed by the dealer that my April 8 production
    date for my GT-3 was pushed back to May because of the
    thicker steering wheel option. According to PCNA, the wheel
    has to have another layer of leather stitched on, etc....must
    be labor intensive. At first thought this appears like a completely bogus excuse, but I thought I had read about another person's experience on this forum a few months ago.

    Also, according to the dealer and PCNA, there will be a couple
    of months hiatus on GT-3 production, does anyone know why?
    I would assume to build GT3-RS's. Anyway, the reason I was informed of this was because my car was either on one side or the other of this production gap. I luckily ended
    up on the short side, even with the 2-3 week difference
    for the steering wheel option.

    Re: Thicker steeling wheel problem and GT-3 production delay

    kflem: Apparently ordering the thicker steering wheel option means that when your car finishes its trip down the standard production line it's taken over to the Exclusive department where your steering wheel is removed, gets an extra layer of leather wrapped around it and is then re-installed. Personally I decided to drop the thicker wheel option and order the alcantra GT3RS steering wheel from Gert at carnewal.com which didn't cost a whole lot more and leaves me with a spare steering wheel.

    you can also order the thicker steering wheel from carnewal.

    kflem: Last week I got a "production date" for my GT3 RS: 20. April. Maybe you're right and they are building now the RS-Versions. I don't know. (I'm not sure if this is necessary?) I'm going to visit Porsche-Zuffenhausen at the end of April. Maybe I can have a look at the production line...

    By the way: A friend of mine just asked my dealer for a GT3. They told him that all GT3s are sold out

    My dealer here in Germany has a brandnew black GT3 sitting in his showroom. Price tag is around 103000 Euro as far as I remember. I actually almost fell for this car but two Porsches are a bit two much for us right now.

    RC: Thanks for your information. I will tell him after his vacation. Is this a CS-Version?

    Before he can buy a GT3 he still needs to win the battle against his wife.
    (Her statement right now: "OK, I can't avoid a GT3. But it doesn't have to be this year" )
