Yes a good looking car!
What interior option did you go for. I think it looks nice with the red seatbelts.

Spoke to another dealer in the midwest, and while he doesn’t have any build allocations for a turbo S yet, he does have one configured from Porsche available for purchase (to arrive soon ? Not sure on its current location, since I wasn’t interested in preconfigured). He expects the next round of allocations in December, the mix between trims TBD.

My dealer just called me. A space opened up for a February build. Based on we has said, the car should be at the dealership sometime late April. I am going to finalize the build tomorrow. FYI, the car will be sold at MSRP. No discount. He indicated that the owner of the dealer wanted to charge a premium but the sale manager, who I am dealing with, says you can't do that to customers who have had deposits with the dealer for more than a year. The sales manager won that battle. Was anyone in the US able to get a discount off of the sticker price?

Not sure the sales manager won the battle as they are not discounting this car, at least for the first year. That story about holding your money was to make you feel better after he declined giving you a discount. Also, I am not sure where you were on the list so unless you were one of the top 10 at your dealership to place a deposit, we should be somewhat concerned that a “spot” opened up all of a sudden when they are supposedly sold out of 1st year cars. How many people before you declined to put their order in on the Taycan after seeing the specs and pricing? LA, the place where your status is your car and they are having difficulty selling the Taycan?

selling out means they have more than enough orders to fill the first year production. Of course, they would consider that a certain percentage would drop out whether that is due to a specs and pricing or changes in their finances, or changes in their needs.

They will have no difficulty selling all the Taycans they can produce.

I was number 11 on the list. I have no idea if the first 10 declined to order or not-is it relevant? The bottom line is I have the ability to order a car.

...they are supposedly sold out of 1st year cars.n?
Its kinda hard to be sold out of ANYTHING if they haven't released the associated allocations. I believe a more accurate statement might be that they have enough deposit holders to take the first years worth of production.

I have also heard that they have reserved a booth at Applebees for a party with all the folks who will ACTUALLY take delivery of a Taycan in the first year... ;)

FYI,

Just got a call from my Sales Rep. Looks like my TurboS allocation finally came through! Although it is scheduled for a JULY DELIVERY, at least I'm "in the pipe" now... :)
