    New car build date

    Having placed my order and gone spec final on my car Im being told by the dealer that its a may build - but he was unable to say whether it was the first or last week of May, leaving me with a 4 week window either way!

    What information is available to the dealer that will tell him exactly when the car will be built and when should this information become available?

    I know from experience that quite early on the ordering process BMW give a build week number, which can be translated by those in the know to an actual date that year. Im assuming Porsche do the same?

    Just want to know what to ask the dealer to get a fixed date out of him so that I know where I stand.

    Re: New car build date

    To minimize your frustration - forget BMW (which is light years ahead of Porsche regarding providing build information to the customer). I just got my car.

    I was told 12/6 that a January build date was available.

    I was told 1/2 that estimated completion on Jan 30th - but no firm production date.

    On 1/4 estimated completion on 1/26

    On 1/22 still no information

    On 1/24 car showed to be in body shop

    On 1/31 car was indicated to be built

    2/5 car was on vessel

    ON 2/9 dealer told me to expect on 2/18

    On 2/19 dealer told me to expect on 2/24

    On 2/23 car was in port

    On 2/23 dealer informed me it would be there tomorrow

    Car arrived at dealer 2/24

    You can read what happened after that by reading my post. I and others recommend to take your car all wrapped up and don't let the dealer touch it.

    Mine is also May build - I asked the same question after speccing the car yesterday and got zero response too. I then asked when I could expect to know and still received zero response. Never had this problem with Mercedes.

    Re: New car build date

    I too placed an order, but for a 2008 model.

    I don't have a build date.

    I don't have any reassurance that it will be the new model (997.2). Though I am rather expecting it to be.

    I figure I can wait six months to find out.

    I will keep the board informed of any information I get.

    Cheers to you Adam25!
