I only spoke with two dealers here. It's possible if I called around I could get an allocation. Based on what the two dealers told me though, that's unlikely. Maybe FC just got really lucky, or the dealer was lying to get a deposit.

But I got to thinking, this is an ideal scenario for me. I like the anticipation better than the part where there is spending of actual money. So the longer I'm on the wait list, really the happier I am.

The dealer who had one ready was clyde's contact.

Reading forums, there appears to be a ridiculous wait for Spyders, whereas Boxster GTS are more easy to get, but who knows.

Hm, that's weird...because I think that's also who JV and I spoke to?

(I also have my name on a list at another dealer, as well).

I was asking about the Cayman GTS, not the Boxster. It's possible that Boxsters have a shorter list than Caymans...?

I was going to say, that's impressive. Josh, I can talk to Herb Chambers for you.
