    Dealer called today...

    and told me my estimated completion date is October 24th!!! UGH!!! with delivery about a month after.

    My 2005 Turbo S Cabriolet was originally advertised as "October Production / November delivery"

    but apparently won't be completed by late oct. and delivered by late nov.

    it was probably all those damned exclusive options the codes that begin with X. grrrr!

    oh well, at least i get a date to look forward to now, before it was just a roulette of somewhere in november, 6 more weeks shouldnt hurt, i've already waited 5 months.

    out goes any hope of top down driving, and in comes the praying for no snow before i take delivery.

    ok venting done.

    Tom. (admittedly happy as ever)

    what did you expect? delivery on november 1st?

    Re: Dealer called today...

    Hey look on the bright side, now you don't have to give yourself a Christmas present .

    Re: Dealer called today...

    Settle down boy.

    When my first 996 ('99) was built (October), it completed production 11/4 and I had it 11/21. Of course I had a very cooperative dealer/salesman who sent his own flatbed to port to get the car, shaving a few days off the timeframe.

    You still have an October build, November delivery. So what if there's snow on the ground by then?

    Re: Dealer called today...

    Tom,

    All the more reason you need to hurry up and make the move to sunny California! My GT3 is scheduled to be completed on October 18th. Unfortunately, it won't arrive until late November.

    Waiting patiently,

    Chris

    Re: Dealer called today...

    Eric your too lucky to have such a kind salesman!

    I think I will begin ordering mods sometime soon. namely bumperplugs

    the porsche oem mods like clear side markers, i will make the dealer throw in at the last minute muwahahha.

    and yes, i was hoping delivery within the first week of november

    i find its easier to take my mind off of the car and think about other things, but as the date gets closer and closer, its hard to think about anything else. i mean 4-5 months ago, it was so far away, it was easy to not think about it heheheh.

    ok i'm off to enjoy the last few days of nice weather

    cheers!!

    Tom

    Re: Dealer called today...

    With my November completion date, I am assuming the end of Nov. But at least I have the upside that I then fly over and pick it up and drive home. No ships/customs to wait for.

    Re: Dealer called today...

    lucky lucky

    i was considering european delivery at the time of my order, but my dealer convinced me against it, and also due to the rather cold weather over there now...

    Yeah, the extra $10,000 required makes it very expensive even if it is only a refundable deposit on the VAT.

    Re: Dealer called today...

    Much cheaper from here for the pickup and none of the subsequent de;lays when you have to put it on a ship etc. Through the tunnel and drive into your garage!

    Weather isn't that cold yet. A big call from someone in the north east of the US to criticise European weather conditions!

    Re: Dealer called today...

    don't get me started on the weather in the UK jason, it will only get ugly

    Re: Dealer called today...

    I am Australian so fire away. You won't see me defend it. NE USA is not exactly Florida either though...

    You mean FL doesn't have any twisty roads? Are freeway cloverleafs what drivers in FL use for twisties?

    Re: Dealer called today...

    i can't imagine why people would move to florida to retire...

    like what happened a few weeks ago?... 4 consecutive HUGE hurricanes...

    i mean california is soooo much better.

    Yeh, and Florida's got Jeb, so both states drew short straws in terms of their Governors.

    Re: Dealer called today...

    Actually, now we have put CAL and FLA in context, the UK's weather doesn't seem so bad!!

    Moogle, just heard from my dealer that mine is to be completed on 22 October. Now have to arrange urgent juggling of wife and kids to be able to go and get it the following week. Instant European roadtrip - hope they like the back seats!

    Bit of a surprise as the dealer was saying November most likely. Quality problem of course.

    Sure yours is 24 October - a Sunday?

    Jason, you are so lucky that you live so close to the factory. Mine was completed on Sept 6 and I still have not received it yet.

    Re: Dealer called today...

    hmm he told me the 24th was an estimate, who knows, i havent heard anything for a few weeks,

    i will call them again in the morning, mabye he will have great news for me, like the car has already arrived

    i didn't call them everyday because that would make me look like some sort of crack addict looking for a fix, and also it would help me relieve my waiting stress

    cross my fingers !!!

    Close is of course a relative concept. It is a 600 mile drive. But that sure beats a 3 week boat trip.

    All you have to do is move to San Diego and stay out of rush hour (easy to do if retired) and there's hardly any traffic at all.

    ONVESL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just hit ONVESL, 20 days ~ until delivery.!!!!!

    Re: ONVESL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wooohooo Moogle! Just 20 more sleepless nights!

    Re: ONVESL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mine is completed. Waiting for the call from the factory to pick it up. This is actually the worst bit - knowing it is done but not having it!!

    M3 disposed of though to make some room in the garage.

    Re: ONVESL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    im trying to reconfigure my garage as well...

    i need to sell 2 of my present cars, to make room for the surprise thats coming after the turbo S
