I'm thinking you will have to change to 2020 year. From what I read here the 2019's are closed.

Same time frame, but $800 more for the base, I think (plus things like your special color, which they doubled up the price on year ago).

Why? Why does a $60K car come without options and features standard on a $25K Subaru or Honda? Because they can!

I know Grim. I don’t think they want to do it. It sad because this will dramatically cut down on how many PTS cars you see. Glad I got mine already

Probably a combination of Porsche attempting to squeeze every dollar they can out of their customers and PTS being almost too cheap for a while causing too many orders which became a logistical nightmare at the factory. Not many Macan buyers opted for it, but when PTS was "only" $6K, lots and lots of 911 buyers were looking to order cars painted in their choice of color, especially the higher trims and GT cars. I think this led to a lot of customers being turned down and to a lot of disgruntled buyers and frustrated dealerships. The solution was easy: double the price and the order glut sorts itself right out.
