I knew Porsche said the were cutting back on allocations but this is a bit much! This isn't a GT3-RS ya know! By the way how many of those did you guys get?

Yikes! Glad I just got confirmation from my dealer that my car is getting built right now... sounds like I barely got it in.

Looking around at the two dealers near me, tons of 911s, lots of Boxsters, lots of Cayennes, and a few Panameras. Most of the initial shipments of 2010s are now in.

TWO Caymans at each local dealers lot, by FAR the fewest inventory of any model.

Reasons IMO....

Great publicity lately.
People really wondering "why" 911 now.
Porsche really wants to sell the higher margin 911 & Panameras over the Cayman

Porsche could easily build more, as there seems to be many new Boxsters out there. It benefits them to have the car scarce at the moment. Less threat to the 911 and pricing can now go up or no discounts given.

Is this possibly related to the move of production from Finland to Austria?
No. With the VW merger, they have already asked Magna (the Austrian company) to cancel the impending contract. They will probably use a VW assembly facility for extra capacity if they still need to farm-out Cayman and/or Boxster assembly.
