    03/06 Build, 04/06 Del Should I have been given a date yet?

    I just wondered if I am being told I have a March build and an April delivery, should I have been informed of an "actual" build date at this stage with an anticipated delivery date perhaps?

    Just being impatient, I know, but most of you on this forum knows what its like to wait.

    Re: 03/06 Build, 04/06 Del Should I have been given a date yet?

    Res, I'm in exactly the same position, March build, April delivery. My dealer did say some March builds appear in March?!? but I'm not holding my breath.

    I've not got an info as yet, apart from my driving day invite.

    Re: 03/06 Build, 04/06 Del Should I have been given a date

    I had an October build and picked up the car on 20th October. I was never given a definite build date as such, doesn't seem to be the way it works for us in the UK.

    Re: 03/06 Build, 04/06 Del Should I have been given a date

    Mine is scheduled for March 06 build and April 06 delivery. No build date as of yet..

    Re: 03/06 Build, 04/06 Del Should I have been given a date

    Mine is a march factory collection, no built date yet!!!!

    Not yet!

    Mine is also a March build with "anywhere between end of March to end of April delivery" Don't you just love the precision of it!

    It's a pity Porsche has not asked FedEx to build a customer order and delivery tracking interface for us poor saps who spend meaningless hours worrying about when our car might arrive...

    Re: Not yet!

    Thanks all. Looks like I'm not the only one. It's kind of reassuring to know there are plenty of others in the same boat.

    I did get a letter today though....asking me to take part in a customer satisfaction survey...dunno what I can say really but it will go something like this...

    Me - Can I have a Porsche please.
    Porsche Dealer - Yup
    Me - When?
    Porsche Dealer - April
    Me - Excellent. Spec changeable?
    Porsche Dealer - Yup
    Me - Excellent. Do I qualify for a discount?
    Porsche Dealer - Nope
    Me - What about a decent price for my TT
    Porsche Dealer - Nope
    Me - So, no discount at all?
    Porsche Dealer - Nope
    Me - or a decent price for the TT
    Porsche Dealer - Nope
    Me - Okay, I'll av it.
    Porsche Dealer - Deposit.
    Me - When?
    Porsche Dealer - Now.
    Me - Oh, emm how much? Pounds500
    Porsche Dealer - Nope
    Me - What then?
    Porsche Dealer - Pounds3k
    Me - Oh, okay. When will the car arrive?
    Porsche Dealer - April
    Me - When in April.
    Porsche Dealer - Dunno.
    Me - Oh, okay.
    Porsche Dealer - Thankyou Mr. Brown. See you in April.
    Me - Thanks, Bye.

    As you can see I did a superb deal.

    Me: Hi!
    Porsche Dealer: Not you again , P*SS OFF..

    Re: Not yet!

    Well.

    My car (did I say its rarrived in the UK... Oh yes.. Maybe I did.. Anyhow ..

    On 1st Feb it didn't even have a build date on the system. I phoned up on the 15th Feb and was told. It arrived in the UK yesterday. So things seem to move VERY fast through the system once dates have been allocated (unless it was just mine being eager to meet its new owner!)

    Re: Not yet!

    Me- I need to order a C4 today!
    PD- Let me check my allocation.
    Me-........?........
    PD- Don't have one.
    Me- What can I do?
    PD- Dunno, but good luck.

    1 hour later placed an order somewhere else.

    Re: Not yet!

    If you have been to the factory, you'll see why things are a bit nebulous as far as delivery times. Especially when you load up your car with lots of leather and other Exclusive options. When your center console, PCM surround and A pillars are being done in leather/carbon/aluminum, and those pieces are ordered from a vendor, Porsche depends on a guaranteed delivery of these items to schedule a car to be built.

    I don't think Porsche wants that much tracking detail available because then we'd all be calling daily asking "why was my car built on 1/15 yet it missed three boats" as another friend of mine could validly ask. No manufacturer wants that much transparency in their business.
