Does anyone have any info on when GT4 and Spyder orders will actually be able to be placed. I have a deposit down for a spot, but that's all for now.

I heard that it is going to be next week, or some point soon, definitely in October...

Seriously! ;)

I've been told by local dealer that ordering of regular 718 Boxsters and Caymans for early 2020 delivery will begin in November. No word on whether GT4 and Spyder ordering will commence then as well (actually, I didn't think to ask).

That's interesting news from a dealer. Most of the words I've read from others here and Renn stated their dealers and even PCNA said no 2020 718s are coming this way, other than the GT4/Spyder.

Did this dealer have any information as to the engine in the 2020 718 cars?

Yes. After initially being led to believe by a regional Porsche rep that the T4 was no more, was informed by a national-level Porsche Canada representative that the T4 survives.

Another Porsche forum has a related thread, also with Canadian underpinnings, regarding the 2020 718 engines. Spoiler alert. Base, S = T4, GTS = N/A 6. That's something that was rumored. Stated 2020 for Base and S, not clear about 2020/21 for GTS.

How about a link? ?

I was briefly excited about the thought of the 4.0 F6 in a GTS before I realized that they probably wouldn’t do that...

Couldn't an order placed that late in the year be for a 2021 model year? You would be looking at an April or later delivery in 2020.

Not likely, IIRC Porsche builds the current model year through until mid summer possibly the end of July before they shut down and reset for the next model year, given this, anything ordered and built late in the year 2019 would be a 2020 model.

The exception would be if the entire model did not exist previously, they could release a new model in the spring as a 2021 if it was not being sold or delivered before January 1st of the release year. (an engine change does not count as a new model)

Anybody actually got an allocation for a GT4 or Spyder yet? With 2/2020 delivery I'd have thought there would be some allocations already.

It would seem the Porsche is showing some love to the USA, I am waiting for my 'official' allocation up here... See the Rennlist thread below:

Don't have a lock date yet, but I'm assuming Jan 4th as I believe it's 3months out from build. Unless they add some options to the configurator I'm pretty much set though.

Allocation on 12/3 for build-complete on 4/4/20 in Atlanta, GA.
Did you really miss that much that Subaru you sold 15 years ago? ;)

I kid, I kid ...

Beautiful combo, congratulations on your order. I am waiting for the result of the PCA raffle first :ROFLMAO:

That said, with black calipers, I would probably go with a Bumblebee combo - racing yellow + black wheels. I think Westcoaster is going for something like that ... Either way, I hope you will enjoy it as much as I hope I would if I ever pull the trigger.

I too am hoping that the PCA raffle complicates my life in a good way! And yes my avatar gives away my current pick... Racing Yellow is on my very short list of colours, that being said there aren't too many to choose from.
