I've been looking at these and called my local Porsche dealer last week here in AZ and was told the same thing. Also, the cars are always fully options which i find rather annoying - especially on a Porsche.

I guess you can just order one "Base" and that would honestly be sufficient. Porsche options are ridiculously overpriced!

The problem is you can't get an allocation, unless you have an "in" or are a very frequent Porsche customer.

Amazing when a full MSRP car plus "only" 20k ADM is considered a great deal.

The other amazing thing is during the 991 generation the last 5 years....
GT cars are not that rare. Here are some model breakdowns that I saw on Rennlist. GT cars GT3, GT2 RS, GT3 RS, and Turbo models (combined) outnumber sales of a base Carrera during the last 5 years, even with ADM and exclusivity of allocations.

911 50th Anniversary Edition (2014) - 643
911 Carrera - 7,496
911 Carrera 4 - 849
911 Carrera BE (2016) - 66 + 276 = 342
911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet - 679
911 Carrera 4 GTS - 751
911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet - 333
911 Carrera 4S - 5,278
911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet - 3,993
911 Carrera Cabriolet - 4,203 + 1073 (2012 builds) = 5,276
911 Carrera Cabriolet BE (2016) - 178
911 Carrera GTS - 2,326
911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet - 960
911 Carrera S - 5,547
911 Carrera S Cabriolet - 4,623 + 1891 (2012 builds) = 6,514
911 Carrera T - 620
911 GT2 RS - 655
911 GT3 - 4,542
911 GT3 RS - 2,183
911 R (2016) - 213
911 Targa 4 - 497
911 Targa 4 GTS - 1,345
911 Targa 4S - 2,892
911 Turbo - 1,966 (accounts for 16 997 built in 2013)
911 Turbo Cabriolet - 1,127 (accounts for 33 997 built in 2013)
911 Turbo S - 4,426 (accounts for 125 997 built in 2013)
911 Turbo S Cabriolet - 2,215 (accounts for 87 997 built in 2013)
911 Turbo S Exclusive - 118

That's amazing! Can that be right?

Well, they are still super popular and hard to get tho!

The Porsche dealership on Saturday was like a freaking mall. So many people!

I just don't ever see me dropping $50k on a market premium? I dunno, just seems wrong! These dealerships are really taking to the enthusiast with this shit. Playing to many games. Build loyalty instead!
