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).
I did an auto trader search and couldn’t see a single one (not that there were 100s of them, probably about a dozen or a little more).

Will give Porsche a go.

Is that what the official name is for the campaign? If so, I can email my dealer and see if he knows anything...

Got the call!!

Not exactly sure what the call was about but just got asked if I could pop down to the dealership for a catch-up about my 992 GTS and Taycan orders. Maybe they know I'm about to order the new RR Sport and are trying to convince me to go Cayenne lol.

My last post was at the end of March when my OPC confirmed my May build slot and then I took a call this morning from them confirming the car rolls out of the factory on the 24th. So it all seems pretty much on track give or take a week. Not sure if further delays are either being ironed out at the factory or there will be an update before I pick up my car in the first week of June...either way no mention of it and the purpose was to start agreeing on a pick-up day.

Sounds positive and good to hear. smile

My GTS is sitting at the port awaiting transport to the dealer. ETA is 20th to arrive there. They won’t release it until it gets a software update :-(

Do you know if this software is ready to go, or is it something in development? Because if it's ready to deploy, then I can't see that taking too long at all (hours really). If it's something 'In Dev' then it can be an issue before our UK dealers get hold of the software, because who knows how long they will take to develop and test it before they're ready to roll it out.

Sounded like it had only just been recognised and development was not started at the time.

Right ok. I spoke to my dealer briefly about this, and although he wasn't able to give me much information, he did say it's quite a common thing to have software updates post production on cars before they are released, so this isn't the first and won't be the last. I suppose in many cases we just don't hear about them, and things happen behind the scenes. Hopefully this doesn't cause too much delay to you guys.

These things happen. Not worth getting too bothered about in my view (and the weather is currently rubbish anyway)
