evoix is an unknown quantity at this point
I'm interested in the 991.2 GT3 manual. I believe a dealer close to me offered to build a GT3 back in 2016 but wasn't ready. By the time I asked he said it's sold. Now I'm looking to other dealers. I don't flip cars and just want this particular model to cherish. If I don't get one maybe I'll spec a turbo S in 991.2. Don't like the spoiler of 992.

Can confirm allocations are still out there. I got a call last Monday from my dealer asking if i was interested in a GT3 allocation @ MSRP. I spec'd the car and had my deposit down by Wednesday. January build slot, car will be a '19 model year.

I'm in the same boat as you....Jan build, 2019 model year and Feb delivery. MSRP too. Only had to wait 2 years to get moved up the list! LOL!

Only sad thing is for the 2019s, Sapphire Blue is gone.....

2 years for me too! Feb Build March delivery. The 2019 color palette was very limited and my build date was not available with PTS. Luckily, they still offered Chalk which was one of my preferred choices.

Sorry for the tardy response. Yes, the car is indeed a model year 2019 and I tool the allocation, GT Silver / matte black wheels / manual tranny (of course!) . I will take delivery next week.

My dealer does not sell any cars over MSRP as a matter of policy.

She's here and is indeed a 2019. The dealer told me that P made very very few 2019s and in fact production is closed and there will be no more. It seems if you had a late 2018 build they gave it a 2019 label which is great and I think makes the car so unique.

Sorry for the delay respond, but couldn't leave a solid comment about "mass production" fairy tale in the wild.
The "GT" cars are mass produced like every other model. If you can call the limited 911 production "mass" One of the most "mass produced" 991 top end model (turbo/gt3/gt3rs/gt2rs) is the 99.1 gt3rs, they end up making about 5000! The 991.2 targa and 991.2 turbo S are probably less "mass produced" than the 991.1 gt3rs.. (no formal info about that). The only car limited is the one stated to be one (The "R" the "exclusive" and so)

I have been to the factory, all 911 are on the SAME production line. No special room, no special employee. I saw it "live" a targa right after a GT2RS.
Why don't they just make all porsches GT3 and meet demand?
First, they probably make more money on a carrera /S/4S/ as on a GT3. second, the 65 years old factory holds limited production line (to all models) and i guess they balance production by countries and by order of specs coming from dealers.
Third, economy 101- don't increase supply to a product currently (only happened in last few years) on fire, when you won't get any benefit, profit wise. The opposite is true- you can lose the hype. For example, in countries where you can't flip a car like in the US, due to high taxs (meaning you pay double in the first place, no chance for flipping it for a profit) you can see gt3/rs brand new inventory sitting for a year at mspr.. (even with discount). turbo S ? sells in 2 days (mspr is higher than gt3rs). carrera GTS ? won't stay for a week. this is an interesting situation indicating real demand.
