    '09 Turbo 'waiters' (US) your wait is nearly over!

    As of today (10/15/08) approx 45 of 50 states are certified and cleared and CARS ARE TO BE ROLLING.

    Turbo anticipators, your wait is nearly over. Congrats. Will post if I hear more.

    I just wish I shared Eric's source - always 100% accurate. Thanks for the update.

    OK fellow Porsche Nuts, I have just been told by my dealer that my '09 TT will likely be delivered tomorrow. If true, I will post pic's tomorrow.
    Eric, I don't know you but judging by what others say, LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE ACCURATE ONCE AGAIN. Thank you sir.

    sparkhill and jefferyturbo,

    Mucho congrats! Please take care not to scrape your baby's front lip on the way out of the dealership -- angle, angle, angle. It WILL happen sooner or later, but don't do it on the first day; it hurts too much.

    In reality, I think a lot of the scrapings also come from that piece of rubber/soft plastic shield underneath the car, in front of the front wheels, and that's totally acceptable. So not all scrapes are, or have to be, painful, just so you know.

    Thanks! I ordered the front lip painted so it will hurt that much more. PCNA charges $585 for that option. I probably could have order two extras from Suncoast and had all three painted for that price. Live and learn...

    I've had several Porsche's since 1995. All have been customized after the initial short drive period. i think I know where to go this time. Thanks for your great post.

    Oh yeah.... I'll be careful on the lip if I can. I'll be so excited after waiting since April that I probably will just not be able to contain myself!

    Re: '09 Turbo 'waiters' (US) your wait is nearly o

    I could feel the excitement.
    BTW, in a few situations, like going over bumps at slow speed and exiting a parking lot onto the street, I think changing PASM to the Sport/Firm setting helps to decrease scraping.

    Re: '09 Turbo 'waiters' (US) your wait is nearly o

    So, my dealer just called and the 2009 997TT's completed Pre-Delivery Inspection and MSRP stickers have been printed for the cars at the San Diego port. Cars will be leaving the San Diego port starting today. Apparently the California emissions issues have been resolved. Just more confirmation of what Eric the Plug Guy yesterday.
