    My 987 S just went to "PRDEST" does anyone...

    Know how much longer I have? It did not show a completion date according to my sales guy. Man, the wait is a killer!

    Don't forget that the car is built in Finland, not in Germany. And if you have some special options (Exclusive) in it, it may take even longer.
    What is your estimated production date?

    Re: My 987 S just went to "PRDEST" does anyone...

    I don't have any "Exclusive" options, unless the RCC in exterior color is one. He didn't give me a production date, what my salesperson told me was the car is listing "In Production" with the code of PRDEST coming from the IDCS. Does that help? Thanks for responding RC! I saw your spec of your 987 S, it looks great. I wish I had thought about the stitching prior to my order.

    Thanks,

    Re: My 987 S just went to "PRDEST" does anyone...

    This is strange. Dealers usually get very early an "estimated" production date, at least now with PRDEST, your dealer should have more details.

    Re: My 987 S just went to "PRDEST" does anyone...

    When I first made the order, I was told the car was the first April build that the dealer had. My salesperson said it was strange that he was getting that code without getting an estimated completion date. I am assuming, maybe I shouldn't be, based on his email that I am "in Production" right now, they just don't know when it will be completed. I'll follow back up with him again next week and see what the deal is.

    Thanks!

    OK, now I have an estimated completion date, May 9. Does anyone know if this is post inspection? Given that I am a US delivery with a boat that should arrive east coast, any guesses as to when I might see the car? A week later and my status is still PRDEST, is that normal?

    Do I sound crazy yet? This wait is a killer!

    Just went through this. while it may seem hard to believe, the wait only makes the delivery sweeter. I've had my Basalt/Cocoa/PASM/etc 987s a week and you'd need a chisel to get the grin off my face. I've logged 600 miles in 7 days!

    Anyway... My car's estimated production date was 2/28. It actually appeared as complete production on 3/1. It was on vessel 3/18, and arrived at the dealer on 4/9. The east coast cars come into Baltimore. Once it's on vessel your dealer will be able to look at the shipping schedule and see the vessel name, and it's estimated arrival in Baltimore. It will sit in baltimore at least 5 days - until your dealer's payment in made and cleared to PCNA (this is a new process the dealers are very angry about).

    Hi Drew,

    I too am waiting for an April allocation 987S. What date did you actually PLACE your order? My order was a car that had already been specced by my dealer, then changed prior to going PRDEST to my specifications. I have been informed that once a car's spec is changed it is placed further back in the production queue to repeat options compatibility review, etc. Since you now have a PRDEST date it would help me to know when you actually specced your car so I can get some idea of when mine might go PRDEST.

    Thanks,

    Just to help you manage your excitement... my car had an estimated 10 day transit from emden to baltimore and actually took 13. Once in the port, it takes about 2 days to be offloaded, go through customs, get inspected and be invoiced (the window sticker). From there it sits due to a new PCNA imposed hold to assure PCNA gets the funds from your dealer. My car took 8 days from the point it was invoiced until it was at my dealer (and my dealer is 40 miles from Baltimore).

    Not trying to rain on your parade, Just know that the excitment builds as the car nears, and would want you to be familiar with the remaining obstacles.

    In any regard, it will be everything you hope - and much, much more. Enjoy. I;ve had mine a week and am looking for every excuse to drive anywhere (700 miles on the ODO already!)

    Re: My 987 S just went to "PRDEST" does anyone...

    Mcdelaug,
    I did the same thing, my dealer changed a car they had already been allocated. We made the initial order transmission to the ICDS system on March 9. I changed it one week later (added the Sport Steering Wheel in leather). Hope this helps!

    Thanks Drew,

    That means I should be hearing any day now...
