    Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    Does anybody have the contact details for the Porsche factory tour in Stuttgart?

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    Contact your local dealer they will set it up for you.

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    When I was at the factory in January, I met the dealer from Melbourne. I don't recall his name, but he was quite knowledgeable and experienced. Contact that dealership and he should be helpful.

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    Well now I really feel stuffed around. I'll explain...
    I'm over in France at the moment on holiday from Australia for 9 months. I wanted to order a new boxster or cayman S - drive it for a bit in europe before it got shipped home. However my dealer (in Perth) told me that you can't get factory delivery anymore because of some problem with customs. I'll wait till morning Australian time and look up the Melbourne dealer. It's just amazing that someone would outright lie to you. Especially when they want you to hand over AUS$150K. If pans out that the dealer has been talking out of his arse then I don't want to deal with them ever. the problem is the next nearest dealer is several thousand miles away. Whilst I'd be happy to buy the car out of spite from Melbourne - I'd hate to drive 3000km for waranty claims.

    If that is not the right one for foreign customers they should at least be able to help you with the correct contact details.

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    How much would it cost to get a factory tour of Porsche, and can you get one without buying a Porsche?
    I ask because I'm going to be right near Stuttgart this July for a week and a half and would love a tour of the factory.

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    Tour is free. Contact your Porsche Dealer to set up a reservation and no you don't need to be buying a Porsche to get a tour

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    It's free? I'm planning on going over in April/May and am starting to get info on it. I was told it helps to be a PCA member (which I am). How far in advance do you need to be able to get a tour?

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    I'm scheduled for the 10 am tour on May 21st. I set it up myself by contacting the folks at the factory HQ.

    The sooner you set it up, the better and you don't have to be a PCA member. Anyone can go as long as proper arrangements are made.

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    I called my dealer and he put me onto someone who put me onto someone else who asked for the same details I'd already given in the email which I supplied again and still never heard back from them...

    So I called the Factory Museum direct - see http://www.porsche.com/usa/dialogue/contactandinformation/museum/
    The lovely Sigrid Mauz has booked us in for June 6th for the Zuffenhausen Factory Tour in English. And yes it's free, and no you don't have to wave a Porsche key ring at them.
    Hope that helps others.

    BTW When I read Wonderbar's post about seeing an aussie dealer at the factory delivery - I thought I had been didled by my dealer. So I called Melbourne and it turns out that for some strange red-tape reason to do with license plates Australian's can't get factory delivery.

    This is a damn shame. I think I'll take out some angst on a hire car at Nurburgring.

    Re: Factory Tour Contact details in Stuttgart?

    Yep, Sigrid Mauz is the one that helped me out. Glad to hear that you got things sorted out.
