    Production - july/August holiday in Europe...

    Hey gang, my dealer said that PAG will be off production during the "month-long" holiday around summer time. Is this true? (sorry I'm not familiar w/ European holidays)

    Also, I place an order on a RHD manual here in Tokyo last year NOV and the dealer still couldn't give me a production date. (given that LHD is the standard spec here in TKY and my RHD manual would be a special order thus requiring extra time blah blah blah).

    Do you guys know if there's any way (w/o going thru the dealer) that I can check whether my order was actually placed or not?

    Thanks a lot for your help, I can't wait to get my Boxster S and am getting a little paranoid and worried that I am totally in the dark. ...

    Generously shed some light for me here?

    Re: Production - july/August holiday in Europe...

    yes its true there is a month long holiday, nothing is done at the factory, except some limited work in the exclusive department.

    the only way to check your order is through the dealer

    ask for a pro forma invoice, that should tell you the details of your order. (if it exists at all)

    FWIW, "Month long" is a slight exageration, it's only 2 or maybe 3 weeks. I forget which.

    It's the city of Paris which closes down for the whole of the month of August, right Fanch?

    Absolutely right and may I add that it's a joy to stay in Paris in August because most tourists don't come with their cars so the usual horrendous traffic is gone, you can park anywhere, it's amazing!
    September is a better month to take summer vacation, if you don't have children of course.

    Re: Production - july/August holiday in Europe...

    thanks a lot guys. No Moogle, I don't think they hv pro forma invoice here in Japan, really sucks!! I am totally in the dark (given that I already paid my deposit. approx 1/6 of the total price...) but really, thanks for confirming!

    So people in Finland (where Boxsters are composed as we all know) also go on vacation?

    Re: Production - july/August holiday in Europe...

    As the Boxster is assembled in Finland, they will typically shutdown from mid-June (usually starting the end of the week in which June 21st - longest day - falls) until mid-July.
