    How long did it take to ship from the factory?

    Simple questions for those who ordered their 997's. From the date your car was completed and the VIN # was available to your dealer, HOW LONG was it before your car hit your dealer's lot?? My dealer is telling me approximately 2 weeks. Germany to Brunswick, GA, and then trucked to Ocala, FL. Of course, I'm chewing my nails to the quick waiting on this car, so any input or experiences is appreciated.

    Re: How long did it take to ship from the factory?

    Mine was built on 9/8, arrived at dock 10/12, arrived at dealer on 10/21, picked up on 10/25.

    Re: How long did it take to ship from the factory?

    Yikes....vtrader, Do you know whether or not your car was boated through the Panama Canal, or land-bridged (rail) from an East Coast port?

    When you get your VIN (checkpoint 8) is not the important milestone as to estimating delivery as is your cars On Vessel date (ONVESL). After production cars go by rail to the Port of Bremen and wait to board a ship bound for the US. To the East coast voyage is approx 10 days, to the West coast approx 21days.

    Ask your dealer if you have an ONVESL date!!!
    Then let the anticipation begin!

    Re: How long did it take to ship from the factory?

    I guess why I'm asking is to get a "feel" for the intangibles, such as the timeliness of getting railed to the port, and then loaded on the boat. Once on the boat, then it's fairly academic.

    Re: How long did it take to ship from the factory?

    I took mine about 1 week to get from the factory to the ship and then about 2 weeks on the boat to Baltimore.

    Mine left factory 12/15, I pick it up tomorrow

    Took as long to get it from the port as it did to cross the Atlantic. Supposidly the first truck it was on broke down and the cars sat three days somewhere.

    Re: How long did it take to ship from the factory?

    My car was completed mid January, and has an arrival date of 13 March!! Guess the boats going the long way -
    Anyone know Porsches methods of preventing flat spotting of tyres? I've had this before on a BMW which was on a ship for 2 weeks less.
