£180 per alloy. Doesn't seem that bad to my being honest.
Insane amount. I've just been quoted £330 plus VAT to have my RS Spyders done by the best in my area who does an exceptional, proper, job. OPC said £600 to get them done, but no point in paying the deal, when I suspect they would use the same people I would!

That's a fantastic outcome and post pictures when your GTS arrives. smile
In the nicest way, push them for a valuation to take the GTS off you when the GT3 is ready. Lots of people really won't like that it doesnt have the GTS suspension, but to be honest, it will be a better daily/commuter for it. On a road which doesn't have a great surface, like we're talking lots of bumps and dips, it will be much better settled and driveable. My GTS does bound around on certain roads, but I do live in the countryside!

No reason you should have any risk to you for something which is their mistake?

I would have been happy with what’s been offered so far.
Maybe I am easy to please.

I thought your cab GTS was coming with silver alloys ? Is this something still on the cards ?

I guess those wheels have been painted afterwards as currently no factory option to have them in silver right?

For those of you who have taken delivery recently or are about to, have your cars arrived on time, earlier or later than originally quoted? If earlier or later, then by how much? Thanks.
Could have been refinished or just swapped for Turbo alloys I suppose.

Re delivery, I get mine next week, so early May. At time of securing the build slot I was told it was a March build slot for April delivery, so maybe delayed a month.
Re delivery mine was running about two months over . Did the April shutdown actually happen? Seems like quite a few GTS’s arriving recently ?

I don’t believe there was any April shutdown. I read somewhere they scaled back on other models and went full steam with the 911. Does seem to be a lot of 911 coming through! Mine is currently on the boat and should be collecting on the 20th of May! Nervous about going Carmine 😂!

Apologies for the poor photo but the car was still pre-prep so didn’t bother getting more. No doubt there will be better ones early next week smile



It’s fair to say it looks fantastic in real life. It was quite overcast when taking the photo but it looks greener in person, and no doubt more so in the sun.

Stunning, good choice on the colour, especially on a Targa.

I thought that was the PTS graphite grey at first then realised its green. Either way looks lovely, congratulations.

Just spoke to my dealer. All recently produced cars have a mandatory software update required and will not be formally registered until completed. I’ve been advised this could add an additional 2 weeks to delivery!

What's the software update related to? Must be pretty important if they're not willing to release cars until it is done. Is it Safety related?

I've been advised of something similar, that being that even though my car is at the dealership, they are not able to release it at present as Porsche have put a 'hold' on it for reasons the dealership didn't know at the time, and don't know the timescales involved either.

Hopefully its a matter of hours/days as opposed days/weeks.

I was told that it’s something to do with Porsche connect. Limited detail.

Indeed, hope you gents can get your cars soon and this doesn't cause any significant delays. Hopefully the software update is available and ready to be deployed and not something 'In development'.

Hmm, I wonder if they've found a security flaw that needs addressing.

Can anyone share photos of a guards red GTS? I know a couple of folks in here picked one up and it would be great to see more of them in different light shades.

I think it you do a search of used GTS's on the Porsche website there is a red one for sale (not sure if Targa or Coupe).
