  1. Presumably the Cayenne has already been built and is on the water. You timed it well, since the Cayenne plant has just been shuttered due to lack of the necessary microchips.
  2. PCSS told me today that they are quoting a one year delivery time for a new 911!
  3. That sucks, sorry to hear it. According to PCSS, Germany just told them that the Cayenne plant is going to be shut down for a period because of the supply chain issues . . . so good luck to anyone hoping for a Cayenne in 2021. You also can't order the 14-way or 18-way seats in most models because these have memory chips. It's not just Porsche being impacted by the supply chain problems, this is hitting BMW, Mercedes, etc.
  4. Managed to get a 4% discount on a Macan S but it was like fighting WWII. They gave me an boot liner (useful), umbrella, 2x key rings, 1 expresso set (umm), 1x cap, 1x mug. Glad I got my build slot when I did (car is on the water) because timing of new orders now looks very uncertain with the microchip shortages
  5. And let's not forget when the 964 was so unpopular you could barely give them away. I remember a Porsche dealer telling me they didn't want to take a 964 Turbo as a trade-in because they were too hard to sell.
  6. Probably depends what quality level you're looking for . . . for years it has been very hard to get fuchs wheels done really well in Australia and plenty of people ship them to the USA for "concours" level quality.
  7. There is a real one in Sydney too. Owned by the same guy who sold me my 1971 911S years ago.
  8. Can anyone recommend an excellent Porsche sales rep in Sydney based on personal experience? I don't want to take pot luck. Willoughby would be my first choice but open to other locations too. PM me if you prefer. Thanks!
  9. Why use Uber, Apple, Microsoft, eBay, airbnb, Google, Netflex, Spotify?
  10. Good question. I don't know the 3.2 market well enough to have a view. There have been some crazy asking prices for Aussie 3.2s lately, but "asking ain't gett'n". The car looked like it was in excellent condition, some minor quibbles aside. Was $107k full value, fair value or a bargain? Experts?
  11. It's all the wasted time I can't stand. Not to mention the way a good car brings every village idiot running to your door from miles around.
  12. I see that Collecting Cars is now live in Australia and that there's a well-known yellow 1970 911 up for auction. 1970-porsche-911-e-2-2 Will be fascinating to see if the service catches on here the way it has in the UK. They sold 1,300 cars in their first year. CTS and Duttons must be a little bit nervous. Amusingly, I noticed that Autohaus are using the new Collecting Cars auction to unload their Aston Martin. Some people seem to enjoy it, but I find selling vehicles the most painful part of owning fun cars. Nice to see a few options now available: Collecting Cars is free for the seller but 6% for the buyer. CTS, Autohaus, etc typically charge the seller 7%-10% consignment fees. And there's a new service called Summon that will sell your car for 5%. Summon
