    First Techart junior and now Gemballa junior... Smiley

    Yes, could be an interesting project if Gemballa doesn't go over the top again on the design. Sometimes a little bit less is more. Smiley

    where the Raptor got all  beat up in the forest...

    the new styling is better on the turbo S compared to Gt3 which is hideous.  And Turbo S is a... rocket.. not that gt3 is slow...

     


    Re: OFFICIAL: New Porsche 911 Turbo S (2020)

    Haha, after all my bitching I think I will order bothyes  Midnight blue for the turbo S, what is best colour for gt3??

    Re: OFFICIAL: New Porsche 911 Turbo S (2020)

    Gentian Blue is my answer for everything


    Re: OFFICIAL: New Porsche 911 Turbo S (2020)

    Well check this - there are no cars, no order completions, the factory is so fkd up by the CHINA FLU, and the chip problem, at least for USA, there may be no  911 cars for a year!!!!!!

    A few Turbo S  were delivered but the flow has stopped. My dealer has 3 cars to sell!!!  Macans and crap like that, 911 flow is non-existent.

    Wow.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New Porsche 911 Turbo S (2020)

    Apparently almost every car company is affected by chip shortages.... some of it their own fault for cutting chip orders at the beginning of the pandemic in the belief they would sell few cars...

    The just in time strategy is the most efficient and cost effective way but the most fragile at the same time. This pandemic is a good example or even more unlikely a ship blocking a canal and the world stops...

    let's see if they will use the return of experience with this.

    System needs redundancy, and what is being demonstrated right now is the lack of it. Problem is everyone brushes off these hiccups as “one-offs” and then promptly forgets about them as things begin flowing again

    Re: OFFICIAL: New Porsche 911 Turbo S (2020)

    Recently ordered a BMW and rather than halt production as many have done - components impacted were lumbar support and side bolster adjustment - they took their supply of parts and stretched it by removing those functions from the passenger seat. So the driver gets all the goodies, the passenger is out of luck. My order was impacted by this and only found out when the build sheet was presented and already in production without my sign off. Not pleased, but they made right and found a car that had just wrapped production with the components included and the specs I ordered plus one more feature that they ate  the cost on. Not all companies have the option of doing what BMW did as it is very component / chip specific, but interesting strategy. Upset a few and still keep the means of production moving or sell nothing and wait for inventory to return. Wish they were upfront about it during the order process given the shortage started in February and I placed my order mid March, but that is more tied to the dealer IMO.

    I am pretty sure the dealer was informed but... Smiley

    Yes, clever...once the car is at the dealership and you see it, they can always convince you to take it as it is. Smiley

    Porsche? Well, my dealer once messed up an order, forgot to order full leather (no kidding). It was a Boxster S. Car was custom ordered with red stitching, so he ordered all necessary factory parts and retrofitted the car with the missing parts once they arrived (six weeks or so later). Not sure how much this cost him but it was a very unpleasant situation for me and him.
