Just wondered if anyone had managed to place an order recently or have they more or less dried up completely now?

You have one coming, if I remember correctly, don't you, Finlay?

finmac has a manual 718 GT4 I think?

So I guess they'd like to switch it for a PDK version or are wondering if production is ending, which it may well do very soon as the GT4RS is launching next month (apparently).

Yes, a manual I have, to be honest I don’t think I’d go PDK, personal preference as the manual makes the car for me (even with the crazy gearing!).

Yea a general question as to any dregs of orders for new build still circulating or whether it’s effectively game over for the GT4? Suspect there will be penny numbers of new GT4 registered as 2022 cars?

I would guess there are a few builds in the system for delivery early next year and any allocations for builds in Q1 2022 would be released in the next few weeks. Will those happen or not? History would say when then GT4RS is released (next month?) the GT4 stops, but after the last two crazy years who knows...

I've got one on order that is currently showing as Dec 24th for dealer delivery (although that keeps changing)

I did ask my OPC about GT4 production ending and they've heard nothing from Porsche to suggest it will end any time soon.

Several folks have said in the dealer systems the GT4 is showing as no longer available to order, but it's not over until the fat lady sings! laugh

That’s very true!

I think I read somewhere that the latest Spyder/GT4 were louder than the earlier ones - not sure if that’s BS though, anyone aware?

BS. It came from a MaxRevs video on YouTube but he was comparing a Spyder with a GT4. I believe the lack of a fixed cabin changed the acoustics rather than a change on Porsche's end in the exhausts.

This thread prompted me to contact my dealer to ask how my deposit/place/order was progressing.

When I placed my deposit/order in the 2nd week of August this year, I was 5th on the waiting list for a build allocation. At the time they were waiting for Oct21/Nov21/Dec21 allocations.

As of today (2 months later), I am now apparently 3rd on the list, with all allocation for Q421 been & gone. The list apparently is now 15+ long, but he said that because I am "Top 3", I should expect to get an allocation for Q122 if Porsche continue builds. There is apparently no indication from Porsche that they are stopping or thinking of stopping GT4 production so he's carrying on as if they will be continuing GT4 production. He said he should know mid/end Dec what Q122 allocations will look like and if I am going to get a car.

I was told that GT4 and Spyder are greyed out on ordering system indicating that are no longer available to order.

They were greyed out - saw it myself. Apparently that’s been lifted for now with a few final GT4s left filtering through next year. It’s definitely the swan song now though. Spyder is, as before, even harder to get an allocation for.

I’ve got a GT4 PDK due to be completed at the factory end of Jan 22. Not sure if this is Q1 2022 allocation, or Q4 2021 with a delay.
