That blue looks great on the GT4. I would for sure get that blue if I got one.

Well of course YOU would. It's basically a doppelgänger of Monte Carlo Blue.

My GT4 arrived yesterday. 150 miles on her so far. Car is friggin' awesome. I'd forgotten how much I love the chassis balance of the mid engine platform. The hype surrounding this car is not over exaggerated. If you want one of the most involving drivers cars out there, this is it. if you want the fastest, go for the GT3 RS

Just got word from my SA that my car arrived! Sadly it's the day before I need to head out of town for work, so I won't be able to pick it up until NEXT weekend, but that's obviously a trivial gripe to have. All I've got so far are some low-res photos of the car with the protective material still on it, but basically it's Dark Blue Metallic with silver wheels, black supports, headlamp washers in exterior color, and the now-unicorn bucket seats. My SA is also throwing in the Euro-style clear LED sidemarkers. It's going to be a long 10 days....

There are lots available, just at "market price". Mine can be had at $100k over (read, not available).

Congrat's!

Can not wait to see the photos and hear your feedback. Mine is scheduled to go into production 11/13. I sold my M3 last weekend so it's going to be a long few months for me.

I would avoid paying more than a few percent over MSRP for any new car; you usually end up regretting it later (at least, my friends who have done this regretted it). Patience is required sometimes on a recently introduced model...

The caveat is that some values on very desirable short-run cars never fall much or at all, and then you have a late-model collectable car. If Porsche discontinues the GT4 after only two model years, I would expect to see them follow a similar price pattern to other recent cars like the BMW 1M and Audi TT RS. These limited production late-models show very strong resale until the fervor dies down over some period of time, but then eventually may become true collector's cars years down the road.

Agreed. Need pics! Mine is almost broken in and about to unleash the fury.

Thanks! Wish I could sell my own M3.... There seems to be an epidemic of sudden unexpected personal life issues going around since 3 people have initially expressed interest and then backed away citing that excuse.

Ha! I wish i could. In this case, "work" is freelance work that I do for my own clients, and the client in question is my dad's firm, and if I were to do that he would know EXACTLY why -- and I doubt his firm would agree to pay for the very late flight itinerary change!

Freaking flakes. Here's to hoping you get it sold to the right buyer quickly and you're enjoying your new P car before you know it.
