    Finally pull the trigger.

    After longing for a Porsche for past 20 years and visiting the board every day (and that's day and night) for past 2 to 3 years (my wife have ask me to seek professional help on many occasions). I finally place my order on a 997S (July build, dealer say car will be 2006 model year). I would like to thank all of you that post you knowledge and experience with the 997 that are so helpful to me and others.

    Slate Grey
    Full Leather / Black
    Sport Chrono Package
    19" Carrera Classic Wheel
    Bose High End Sound Package
    Power Seat Package
    Floor Mat (Free)
    Wheel Center Cap (Free)

    So what dealer did you end up going to? From previous messages you said you were thinking about 3 different dealers.

    Pacific would give me $500 off and floor mat, Circle would give me $600 in free stuff but I end up with Newport cze they are closer to me(I only get free floor mat and wheel cap)

    Are you sure about that? From what I read so far, the next year production starts on September, when the plant reopens after the August production stop.

    Thanks girlracer, Carlos, Dilinger

    Anyone else can confirm this? I have an April Build date. If May becomes 06' I'll probably just wait a little longer...

    Re: Finally pull the trigger.

    Congrats Andy! Welcome to the club!

    Cheers,

    I just left Newport Porsche where I went to look at the newly arrived 997S cabriolet. They told me the factory shut-down is for most of August and they begin making the next model year at the end of the shut-down. So, they should begin making MY 2006 cars around the end of August for arrival in the USA late September/early October.

    Re: Finally pull the trigger.

    I was also told yesterday by my dealer that 06 models will be starting in august
