GPK1977Hi - first time forum contributor - go gentle!Placed an order for a GTS in early July was informed in August that i was 'lucky' and had made the October allocation - wow!!I then got 'the call' re: 'chip issues' and feared the worst. However, the delay was only until November - i was hesitant......Was informed last week that vehicle had been built and was now awaiting transfer to the port. Apparently the HGV lorry driver shortage is also playing havoc so i'm guessing that it will be c'3 weeks to get to the UK and complete registration etc. Fingers crossed...I was informed by the dealer that the delivery time for new orders is now 2023 - ouch!Does anyone know how many have actually made it into the UK yet?
JimB976Welcome and yes, that’s incredibly lucky. I also have one on order but have zero visibility of timing or guidance from my OPC. meantime, here is Lee Sibley’s review of the GTS (in manual form) pitted against the Carrera S and GT3 to whet the appetite: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OVMiAerRL-o&t=634s Lee is our guest on next week’s Zoom call (see other thread or the email invite) and please do keep the questions for him coming, so far I’ve received a few interesting ones James
twentyoneHi, just joined pcgb a few weeks back, first post. Ordered a new GTS a while back. Latest schedule: V250 vehicle fixed in production 12 Nov, V300 vehicle completion 3 December 2021. Thereafter shipping, registration etc. It’s actually my first ever new car, and first Porsche. Super excited!
SchueyAny of you received your invite to the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone for the GTS?
SteveJCMy Targa GTS was ordered in June with an October delivery mentioned, dealer has kept me informed along the way of delays etc, just heard the car is built and is on the way to the docks, hopefully late November early December for me, then straight for PPF and ceramic coating.
BluetonicSchueyAny of you received your invite to the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone for the GTS?Yep, mine came through yesterday as well. Good sign that GTS's are rolling off the production line I suppose. My OPC also confirmed yesterday I'm still on track for a March/April delivery. Ordered Late June.
JimB976Build slot confirmed by the OPC today for a March delivery so I’m very happy with that news. My prelim spec had Night Blue Metallic as the colour but that’s been deleted as an option for 2022 cars, so a rethink is required. Ahead of that decision I’ve got a PEC Silverstone day booked for Dec 3rd to drive the GTS which is very exciting.
PokharaWhat colour have you gone for? I've plumped for Gentian Blue. Saw it on a 911 C2S recently. It looks superb.
