Good to know the 997.2 will be the last, best of the 3-pedal cars

under $150K CDN. Really?

My guess is over $200k with a little bit options before tax.

Nice, I'm sure the PDK will be amazing of course with the 475hp to boot! But for less money, better steering feel, and a MT, I'd rather get the 997 GT3 variant.

Unbelievable, as expected. The wait already starts getting unbearable. Need to distract myself with work.

Rear wheel steering? Ought to be interesting. No question this will be a faster car than the 997 GT3 but can wait to hear about how much charisma it will give up.

Unbearable is right - I have had a deposit on the car for almost a year now and its going to be until the end of this year

No, I think it will still be well under $200K before tax. While I am sure you can go nuts with options as is the norm with Porsche, I am guessing 20-25K in options will get you plenty

+1 - it seems that all interesting parts are standard anyway. From press-releases I did not see much interesting in term of options other than front-axle lift.

Looks like a fantastic car. No more manual and 9000 rpm!
