    Just got back from putting in the deposit. Here is the car, I added the hifi sound for resale. I don't like a lot of carbon fiber so I got the options that make the most sense for this car without adding all the CF expense. The spec is now $434k so a medium cost spec but has all the stuff you want for a road trip with a passenger. I am aiming for the 812 GTS as this car is likely to be an interim car I was focused on making it a decent resale spec.

    My compliments . We will share our feelings . My will be delivered next June . Me too I’m waiting for a quotation related to a GTS with my SF trade in one year later (2021) . We will see . I like so much opening roof but I like more the SF if you look it from rear . Struggling .

    Mine should be here in the same time frame unless they can get it into an earlier slot. Scheduled build is late March or early April.

    I would have chosen silver for the calipers so those wheels remain the focus. You can't go wrong with Grigio Titanio, a wonderful color!
    Did you get any commitment from them that this 812 would get you into a GTS which you have mentioned was the goal???

    They told me that I would get a GTS allocation but the timing is probably not 2020. They have two slots for 2020 is all I know and I am not likely to get one of those. That is OK with me because I would like to own the 812 for a year or so.

    I tried the silver calipers first and also black but since I am using the red trim on the inside, the red on the outside complements the red on the inside is our reasoning. When the door is open, the red calipers bring the inside out.

    One idea is replace the wheel caps with CF or black. Thus, you don't have the yellow and red so close.

    I think I need to go fool around with the configurator some more to try that combo.

    Dealer told me the car started production today, the myferrari page shows waiting list but he gave me the VIN so I should be seeing a car in the next couple of months! WOW!

    Buying that Portofino boosted my status for sure.

    Or with so much new product being launched last year, maybe the demand has kinda evaporated.......

    Yes, that could be it too but others are saying their orders aren't being delivered until June and they put in well before me. I just put my order in a week ago.

    Very true. The dealer here has a really good 2019 that I could buy for about $65k less than my spec but I decided this time I would spec one just so I can say I have done it. I plan to lose even more money buy taking a GTS allocation and trading this one for the GTS.

    Portofino ownership had nothing to do with it. The 812 SF market is dead with plenty of slots sitting empty. Never owned any 812SF and got offered a 812 GTS, promptly turned it down.

    Thanks for that. So you have only owned a Cali T HS, 488 spider and you somehow got a Pista allocation which you never explained but you were offered a GTS allocation without asking but you turned it down? Why do you suppose they would offer it to you with such a thin buying history and no expressed interest? Doesn't make sense to me if they actually want to fill the spot.

    I don’t get the impression the money is too much of a concern.... bloody good way to be. We are on here once, enjoy every minute, and every minute in that 812 will be awesome

    Do you get the status code from the dealer or is there another way to track it?

    Yes, the dealer is the only one with the access to the MODIS system where the status is found. I hadn't gotten a status update for a week and I figured I would email him this afternoon and when I did, he responded that he was just about to email me with the update. My car still says Waiting List on my.ferrari.com.
