    All  seven slots my dealer had for 2023 have been canceled. 
    4RS is will be a rare car for a while. 
     

    Porsche is launching many new special models .  How will they keep up ? 

    Wow - will those slots be replaced in time or just gone?

    This won't affect yours though, right?  Coming soon?

    The canceled slots are the ones that were supposed to be delivered in 2023. For the moment they have no info about replacing them or just gone. I can imagine it all will depend on production capacities.  If the supplier chain is working properly again, I can't see why they would not give the canceled slots back. 

     Mine should come by the end of this month. 

     

    As least yours is made already.

    Mine was supposed to be in production some time in July. It's August now and it's still showing scheduled for production. At this rate it could be my Christmas present.

    I gave up chasing them about my car, things are out of Porsche's control.

    I could very well ended up getting my Ford Lightning first before the GT4RS as the Lightning should be here some time in October.

    Re: GT4RS

    Dates keep changing. Whoopsy you could get it the same day as the Lightning .

    My delivery date has changed again. Pushed forward by 2 weeks.It is now on the truck heading to my dealer. Should be there by tomorrow or Friday. 

     

    @Gauss : has your car arrived ? Was supposed to be today, no ?

    Re: GT4RS

    Here it is. Haven't driven it much yet. I've just brought it home, but will drive to the Nürburgring this Sunday. 

    The car looks much better in person than on photos...

    Thanks guys,

    @Enmanuel, silver wheels are my favorite. I've never understood the preference for black wheels, it gives this car especially too much contrast.

    Doesn't quite matters now, new tax kicked in already in Canada, There will be an extra $26k or so new tax on it when it arrives. On top of the existing 25%. 

    10% of the total MSRP or 20% of the number above $100k. Whichever is lower. My car comes in at ~$230k or so before tax. What's wild is that the government says any modifications/improvements/equipments added after delivery but within 1 year of the original purchase date is still subject to the tax, so new wheels, tires, wraps, clear bra etc.Smiley

    There is something to be said of a simple white car with black bits and silver wheels that looks really good.

    Have fun and enjoy the car on Sunday!!

    Re: GT4RS

    Porsche white is the best in the business. Also, it makes the car look larger than it really is.kiss

    Yes, stupid government tax.  Worse is the tax on tax part Smiley

    But how would they know about new wheels and tires?  Can always ask a friend to order and then pay him back Smiley

    That is crazy !!!!!   And we thought that cars are too expensive in Switzerland. Now it looks like they are a bargain over here. 

    Government just ripping off people where they can.

    Yeah well this is what happened when we have a left wing nut job at the helm of our country. His hero is Castro. 🤷🏻‍♂️ he also doesn't like people disagreeing with him, classic dictator. 

    Planes, yachts are also under this new tax bracket.  

    It was also announced the tax will be retroactive from Jan 1st 2022, so all contracts signed since will be subject to the tax if delivery hasn't happened yet. 

    At this rate, moving to Switzerland seems more and more attractive every day.
