If you can get 8% discount just start a new thread bud and tell us how.

I have had GTS Cayman on order since December, but as my current cars lease runs until October I’ve tried to be as sensible as possible and agreed delivery for June.

To pass the time I follow all things 718 GTS and whilst playing with the configerator for the 367th time, I noticed that the PDK is £300 more on the GTS than the S. Porsche have no doubt done that because they can, but seems sneaky to me.

Come 1st March hoping many more of you will be taking delivery and posting pictures?

Enjoy all!

I think that is because Sport Chrono is more on a PDK than a manual, since Sport Chrono is standard on a GTS, they absorb the difference in the third-pedal-removal "upgrade" wink

I did not get an 8% discount. Figure plucked out of thin air.

I shared that info on C2C a few pages ago so didn't see the point in repeating it.
£1000 of that is the finance contribution.

too many pages to keep track off, since some is moaning about where to find discount. In october the discount was £1700 so the 2400 is a big jump from what they’re offering.

Cheers. Too late for me now but good to hear that the field of play really is quite small.

GT Silver with the GTS interior in red is a fantastic choice.

Great choice.
I chose Agate but it was a toss up between it and GT silver
I was favouring silver and the wife thought Agate so guess what? Agate it is.
What OPC was it?
I'm an April build too and was wondering if spec was still changeable.
Can anyone who has a Boxster or Cayman and doesn't have climate control tell me if they miss it or not?
And if speccing again would they include it.

Solihull.

I went for climate this time round but didn’t have it on my 981, that was used so didn’t spec myself.

I am on my 4th Cayman / Boxster and you should definitely pay the £500 and spec it - no question in my mind.

Some day they don’t miss it, some says it deffo puts off a used car sale , some swear by it etc

I think your lockdown might be very close. my March build locked like 3 weeks ago even tho the computer says freeze date was today.

I presume GTS interior in red is black alcantara with red stitching?
