Are folks with November delivery being asked to sign any Brexit surcharge contract?
Mine is apparently late Dec and Brexit surcharge has already been brought up in conversation, apparently if the surcharge does happen a buyer of any new car will be liable if the isn’t car isn’t in the country and registered before the last day in OCT.

You watch them delay/ up the port delivery’s when we get close to the end of Oct!

Gentian Blue Spyder

For anyone wondering why I’ve edited this posted, my iPad auto corrected Gentian to Genital Blue.

Ditto, and I have a signed order from the OPC confirming the final build price.

Warming to it massively, I may colour mine up in it, makes a change from the same old same old. Although it may negatively effect the future resale value.

I am also going Gentian blue so it may be more popular than this forum seems to think.

I asked my OPC the question on tariffs and was told Porsche wanted signed confirmation that the tariff would be paid when Brexit was likely to happen in March and they have not been told it will be any different in October, however they have not had a specific instruction from Porsche yet. I was told they will do what they can but if its an instruction from Porsche then there hands will be tied and if it is a no deal then my OPC feels tariffs will apply. I was told my car will not be through before Brexit so for me its wait and pray for a delay or a deal.

A 10% tariff will take my car over £100k which is a lot and quite close to GT3 money. Either way I am going to have the car unless the 991.2 GT3 in manual suddenly drops below list which will not happen.

Gentian Blue will be nice i reckon.
It’s a colour that can change with the light, from almost black, through blues to shades of indigo.
Would be with silver wheels for me.

YEP, likewise. Have "finally" decided to decline my slot for the 718 Spy.
My OPC won't struggle to find someone to take my place, though it won't help my relationship towards any possibility of a 992 GT3...
Sure the 918's a lovely car. But I can't ignore my 981 has the edge on looks, (particularly in Agate). It sounds better, and will almost certainly ride B roads better where I live better. The £20K cost to make a sideways move (IMO) seems pointless.
I've had numerous Porsches over many years, but this one look's like my first genuine keeper.
The way Porsche are going, to meet new regs, I have a feeling the 991.2 GT3 may end up being another...
Wouldn't you have been able to profit on the resell?

Hi . If you have got your spyder or gt4 in order does anyone have what the option to buy payment is after 3 or 4 years on pcp ? Just wonder what Porsche are giving as figures as not on website yet? .

Have been told by my OPC that all GT4 allocations have been made for this year. They're totally fking me around. Bought a factory order 991.2 GTS last year in the expectation that this would put me in good standing for a GT4/Spyder. Nope. Terrible comms all round and doesn't look like I'll get into the big boys club here.

Wait for the 2020 allocations, I reckon there'll be a good number of cars available for various reasons.

Most OPCs are only receiving 3 or 4 cars this year anyway.

Ok, what do you reckon the allocation will look like next year?

Depends on Brexit and 10% surcharge.

Overall probably a few hundred more 718s than 918s.
