    Order Tracking

    My Targa4S order is now frozen for a January production slot.  Is there any automated way to track the production status and shipment to the US?  I know that this is possible with BMW but have never tried it with Porsche.

    Re: Order Tracking

    The only way is to keep asking your dealer. Most of the sales guys run a status report for the cars that are on order as well as the available production slots every day. Just get your sales guy to send you an e-mail when the status of your car changes, a good one will do it without you asking.

    I just got my 997.2. It had  build completion date of 27 October and was actually finished on 31 October. It went to "on vessel" on 3 November and arrived in Baltimore on 13 November (2 days early!). It was at the dealer (also in New England) on the 17th and I took delivery on the 19th.

    This should give you an idea of the timeline.

    Thank you.  Very helpful.

    Re: Order Tracking

    The factory annual break has been extraordinarily extended to the 9th January, due to a drop in demand. 

    So the factory wil re-open 12 January so your order will take a few more calendar days to be completed.

    The dealers have an on-line system that tells them at any time the expected date of completion.
