Anyone heard anything about aerokit being reintroduced? I still have a month until my lock date and hoping it’s back by then.
I managed to get the aerokit on my car even though it’s not on the configurator. I locked in my spec early March 22 and I’m on track for collection mid July. My OPC was able to arrange this for me

Do you need to do anything to get a build photo pushed to the Porsche App?

Nope, but see it on a car and looked nice.

I thought the same, it was not available when I specked my current car.

Is that standard on the Turbo, with the ribbed leather seats and door cards? If so looked lovely on the Turbo I saw.

Think it was available when I spec'd mine as was looking at it on a Targa 4S the dealer had in stock, but wasn't sure how it would work with the race-tex bits, so didn't bother. If you wanted complete leather inside then it certainly looks nice.

I think the 930 pack also includes heritage green dials and a different chrono face too.

Sorry, I don’t understand what you are meaning. The next one will likely be 15-18 months away, so the px figure on the current (992 Targa GTS) will be agreed shortly before that. Obviously it isn’t possible to agree a px figure now due to timescales and potential market fluctuations.
I’ve done the same. Order in for late 2023 delivery Turbo S Cab. I’ve had the GTS a month and I’m blown away by it. Real world great car. I’ll take my chances with residual when the next one arrives. Can’t see the GTS falling out of bed though ?

Yes I noticed that on the Silver Turbo S Press car, but that has full heritage leather that was on the 992 Targa Heritage which is like 7/8k so can see as to why they would include the green clocks etc on that. But not on the 900.00? 930 style leather that i had as stock on my 992 Turbo Ss.

So the good news, I collected my car yesterday and she looks fabulous. The bad news, the dealer changed the spec after I ordered, omitted to tell me items were not available, and being a Brit in Germany, they also took the liberty of misleading me regarding what certain option codes included. The car isn’t as I planned it, with some daft choices having been made (such as ordering all the assist features separately rather than the innodrive pack I asked for). Thankfully, I smelled a rat 6 months ago and since then I have generated a long paper trail of emails. Better still verbal agreements count as valid in contract law over here and I took along a few people each time I visited the dealer just to be safe. I’m also on great terms with my lawyer, and soon my local Porsche dealer will be too.

Sorry to hear about the heartache…. The car looks great though and I’m sure she will be a pleasure to drive!

Would love to see more pics!

Thanks for the heads up, I was aware of what the 930 leather is like I had it on a couple of 992 Turbo S, its very nice. It was just that I had not seen any spec it on Targa 4GTS yet, It was not available when i specked my current car. I note that the 555 car has Silver Centre Lock wheels think the darker stock ones suit the GTS better.

I agree on the alloys. I'm also not a massive fan of the 930 pack personally, as it is losing too much of the GTS feeling. I have full leather interior on mine (like you) but have racetex steering wheel, centre storage unit and visors, which makes it still feel about right to me (ie still maintains the GTS feel, but with the spec I wanted, ie full leather seats).

I know what you mean about the 930 pack, but I think it just adds a bit more to the trim. I agree on the leather seats I have seen cars with 4-5k on them that are used as daily cars with multiple drivers that have the GTS trim pack and seats look worn. I have also gone for the wheel and other Bits that you have in racetex. Just need to decide now on Signal Yellow, Jet Green, or Amethyst metallic.

Jet green, then signal yellow for me. Saw a GTS targa in amethyst and just didn’t like it (although love it on GT3’s). Saying that though, I think if we lived in a warmer place then I’d go yellow first all day long as would look epic in the sun.

I’m torn between dark olive metallic (which is very dark, nearly black, but reflects green in the light) or black olive (which is more like a camoflague colour). Again, black alloys and hoop, and not sure on interior yet. To be honest my replacement will be late 2023 so miles off yet.

Visually near identical

those are the 991.2 seats, not the 992, they have changed. Not sure if the 4 way and 18 way are different, but the 18 way 992 are different to the 991.2.

I have the 18 way in my 991.2 and have specced the same in my 992, they are great, especially the extra leg support. Its what stopped me buying the Aston Vantage F1, couldn't extend the support under your legs, makes a big difference for me seating position.
