    981 Boxster Production Delay

    I am hearing 981 Boxster production has been delayed for 2 months. Has anyone heard what is causing the production delay?

    Some buyers have already taken delivery of their 981s, so there can't be delay in production start-up?

    perhaps it's just high demand ..

    or related to being assembled by Magr Steyr in Austria?


    Re: 981 Boxster Production Delay

    I thought Porsche had moved all production in-house and was planning to produce Boxster & Cayman at plant to be shared with VW. Perhaps RC can shed some light on this.

    Zuffenhausen capacity is aprox. 35000 Porsche models per year but for "overflow" demand, Porsche will have extra capacity for the 981 model starting this autumn in Osnabrück (Germany) at a VW plant (which was actually the "old" Karmann plant). Currently, VW produced the Golf Cabriolet at this plant.

    There have been lately delays on the 991 and 981 because of certain paints and painted rim options, maybe this is a reason for possible delays? Sorry, right now I have a lot of work and even more private (health) issues in the family, so I don't have much time for Porsche stuff or Rennteam. Smiley

    Re: 981 Boxster Production Delay

    There have been ongoing delays from the start. My own 981 was moved back and forth in the calendar several times until it was produced in May, about four weeks after the initial estimate.

    I guess that's only normal when introducing a new model. Even under normal circumstances, Porsche reserves the right to change production date until quite close to the original estimate.

    As stated above, there are several options in the "Porsche Exclusive" program that has been delayed. They were not planned to be ready for the produciton start and some of them appear to have been even further delayed.

    Then this delay should apply for new orders only. Production date for my car was approved some six weeks ago for 5th September (today), pick up has been approved 15 minutes ago for Friday afternoon SmileySmileySmiley

    Re: 981 Boxster Production Delay

    I was looking for the reason of the delay, too. Ordered mine on July 13 for a September 11th build.... Got word this morning that production had been put back September 29th..which, oddly enough, is a Saturday.

    I'm sure someone out there knows a reason for the delay.. C'mon, man, spill your guts! (or woman)
