is there a "steve thomas bmw" of porsches?

looking to place an order on a gt3

wondering if anyone has experience with porsche dealers that are friendly like STBMW is, give quotes without asking tens of questions, will let you place an order with a relatively low deposit, offers invoice price (I know this is impossible a new GT3), etc...

I don't know about buying a whole car but I have gotten parts for years from Suncoast Porsche. They have always been top notch in terms of sales and knowledge.

Might be too late for a gt3 man. My dad has one on order from a dealer in Atlanta. Dealers only get a limited number. Most don't get any and the most I have heard is five. And if I'm not mistaken all slots have been taken. These are for deliveries starting end of this year all the way till end of 2014. Might have to wait until a dealer gets one and someone decides they don't want it, long shot but possible. And at a cost way over Msrp.

I would contact as many Premier dealers as you have time for.
I have never seen a Premier charge over MSRP.

You should be able to find one.
Ordering, I am not sure about.

According to a guy who's buying two 991 GT3's (I think he's a race car driver or something and he's got several GT3's including an RS 4.0 and and bunch of others), all allocations have been taken and you can't really order one without waiting quite a while to get it.
Porsche dealers usually give first allocations to their best customers and I doubt anyone on here is on their list.

McKenna BMW has a performance dept, I would think their Porsche dealer does as well.

Sweet! How long is the wait??

My office is in Newport Beach and a fellow P-car owner if you want someone to "test it out" for you when it arrives
