    All dealers, no matter how small their turnover is, will get at least one GT2RS. 

    Delivering a top dog Porsche is an event for them.

    Just deliver my car to my house please, or I'll pick it up when there is no one around.

    The car was for his mum and dad Mr & Mrs Jenner yet the presenter's language many times implied it was his, what is wrong with these parents ? letting their kids pretend they can afford to buy cars like these ? One of my friends has a similar situation where his son in his online personna, instagram etc is pretending his GT4 is making way for his new GT3, true his father has bought them for him to drive but only because they are free motoring with the current bubble.

    When Whoopsy's 918 arrived, there was a delivery party as well.

    Nick worn a black suit with a green tie, so sharp and matched his car perfectly.indecision

    They displayed a Carrera GT at the same time.

    His and mine were the only 2 delivery parties at this dealer that I know of.

    Well, the Porsche driving community in Vancouver is not very big.  I know a lot of them from the local Porsche Club of America.

    And I have a lot of says to the invitation list.

    Ended up I know more than half of the guests there.

    It is like a big personal party at local Porsche dealer.  You drink and snack and jokes with your buddies, but the dealer is paying for it.Smiley

    Why not?  I think I am same age as you guys.

    Don't misinterpret party as balloons or dress-ups, etc. 

    Just a few nice cars displayed at dealership.  Snacks and drinks.  Bunch of mainly guys gathering around the cars from 6-8pm on a weekday after work for car talks, jokes, etc.  

    No different than outdoor auto shows with cars display, you go to the private booths for free food and drinks if you are VIP.

    what are the older GT2 RS's going for these days have they gone up in value? I can get an allocation, but LHD... is it worth getting and just sitting on it to flip it? I personally wouldn't wanna drive this car as it's probably to dangerous for me.  I prefer a regular tamer GT3 that I can enjoy daily.

    At around 250k Euro there might be buyers. Those offered at higher prices don't sell - even after 2 years of waiting. The market is dead Smiley

    I know a guy over here who would pay 20k mark-up for a German 991 GT2 RS, he tried hard to get one and couldn't and I can't get one for him because the car would have been on my name (incl. 6 months of ownership). This ship has sailed anyway, "my" allocation is gone for good. I could get a 991.2 GT3 RS but same thing, with my name stuck to the production slot. Not helping. Also had a 991.2 GT3 Touring allocation for April production, with PDK I would have bought this car, I am serious. This is one of the rare 911 which will not loose much value in time, I am pretty sure about it. Basically the second best car after the 911 R. Smiley

    Smiley Sorry, meant the 997 GT2RS indeed...

    Regarding the 991 GT2RS: there are around 18 on mobile.de (continuously rising number of cars). There seem to be no sales at all at the 400k-420k (net of VAT) price range. My personal estimate would probably be 320k-350k net might be the market price. That would be around 15% premium vs MSRP Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Thanks guys, ya I Saw those cars on mobile.de, seems that there isn't much demand at those prices....makes sense now why I was able to get an allocation :)


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    That guy who asked me if I could get him one offered 20k EUR on top, maybe he would have gone to 40k tops (according to his girlfriend, who is a friend with my wife...women... angry). So around 350-370k maybe and he really could easily afford paying 500k for this car, this is just out of principle.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    US market seems to be stronger, know some dealers willing to pay up to a $100k for allocation.

    When actual cars show up, the reality will be known.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Why isn’t Porsche raising MSRP?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    SciFrog:

    Why isn’t Porsche raising MSRP?

    Because that would screw over everybody. What they need to do is control that allocations aren't "sold" and go to the right people. They already took care of the flippers to some extent by forcing buyers to sign a contract that the can't resell the car in 12 months or incur in a 150k penalty.
