I don't know if "you" can, but anyone with enough money can buy and take
delivery on a PT-8000. 

The Pt-8000 has been shipping for about a year (with a tiny interruption in
production to fix a couple of problems that Rob found).  

Why waste your money?  A TS-990 is a better radio at half the price.
Or you could buy 6 Eagles;  one for each band in the contest!  ;-)

Hmmm...  can I buy a  PT-8000 ?

If not, then I think it should not count.   N'est ce pas?  It does not 
seem a valid comparison to mention stuff that is still on the drawing board.
Can I actually buy a PT-8000?
