I've asked twice and been told no PTS is available for Australia. I'm happy with the standard colours so I'm not broken hearted, but please post here if you get more news.

Mr mhh.

Just got confirmed from dealer and PCA this week, yes there are 3 pts allowed in the country and unfortunately I'm not 1 of them..... :doh: :doh: :doh:

This boggles my mind.  Surely PTS makes them money with what it costs.  What is the benefit to them to limit PTS?  If I walk in with a wad of cash and want a rubystone red car and am willing to pay the $10-12k for it,  surely is still another sale with additional margin for them?

Time. I've everyone did a PTS they wouldn't have the time to make as many cars as they do.

But surely that is factored into the price they charge for it? Charge an extra $5k for it then,  and it would pay for 2-3 staff (including margin) to change paint in the machine and clean it out etc surely.

I think for unlimited models (911 Carrera) it doesn't matter as its absorbed by a 6yr run. With limited productions like 911r, gt3rs etc... They would have a time schedule to stick to. 6months maybe. Every delay blows that out

Answer is larger production facilities. The money Ferrari, Lambo and McLaren make out of their bespoke programs must be incredible.
