    X51: Delays, delays delays...

    Just got off the phone with dealer so I thought I'd keep future costumers of X51 up to date.
    Bear in mind this is what the dealer told me, in other words, you never know if they tell you the truth or not:

    My car got on the production line yesterday, that was the good news.
    Bad news is that it's been taken off the production today as there is a last minute problem with TUV homologation with X51.
    Additionnal delay, about a month now.
    Porsche AG apologized for this logistical mixup (like I care ) but it also seems on the cool side that this will indeed be the first X51 997S to be produce (like I care Just build it!!! )

    Porsche AG then asked my dealer to convince me to give up X51 so that they wouldn't have to put the vehicle on the side, I oviously refused. I've waited 5 months, I can wait 6. So the car is currently seating in Werk 1 waiting for thumbs up homolation.

    Delivery is now end of October...

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    This I don't want to hear. I have an October build X51 on order and the wait is already painful enough as it is. I may have to call my dealer this week to see where we stand.

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    Oh man, one thing after another , sorry to hear that.

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    Don't worry amigo, one more month will pass quickly ... but I can't wait for you to get it!!

    Thank you dear Mods thank you!
    No bid deal, biggest upset was to miss the summer, the only two trips I've got lined up until end of year are in Houston to come and see you my love, that would be you Ron and no 997 involved anyway.
    Serious trips are not planned before next year so I'll just enjoy it, cautiously on the winter french roads!

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    You guys... get a room!!!

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    anyone know if the x51 is avaiable in the us/canada??

    cant find that in the car config...

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    It is available in the U.S., probably Canada as well. It has been selling out on the monthly build allotments and it may take a late year build or early next year to get it in the U.S.

    I have it on my order for November and wanted to add an option to the order and if done the X51 package dropped off due to being sold out.

    Fanch, you are a bird, right?? Please tell me you are, otherwise this post gives me the jitters. (I work for an airline and see plenty of this at work!!)

    No JZ, I'm afraid I am a man, or should I say, was a man, that is until I met Ron. If you knew him, you would understand, he is now my star, my sun, my je ne sais quoi...

    Apparently, JZ didn't know that Houston has the largest gay population in the U.S.

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    Hey Fanch,

    Sorry to hear about your delay. Welcome to the "bleeding edge" of Porsche production. Personally I think that the possibility of having the first car strongly outweighs the irritation of waiting an extra month. But dare I say it? Let's just hope it's only ONE month...

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    I am in the U.S. and had to give up an August build car to wait for the X51 to be available here. Then couldn't get the option on my Oct. car but am now confirmed with a Nov. build car and will probably see the car after the 1ST of the year.

    Waiting sucks.

    Funny, I thought it was San Fran!!

    Ah well, thanks for clearing that up.

    ROFL!

    Re: X51: Delays, delays delays...

    Oh no man - waiting must be so painful especially after your hopes were built up. Still, it'll be sweet when she comes..(or is that when HE comes?) LOL

    This is very interesting becuase the build of my X51 equiped C2S was also shifted by a month. Fortunately for me, production was shifted from October to September 26th.

    I wonder if our cars will be built in the same batch.

    I wonder if Porsche is trying to bunch all the September and October build X51s together at the end of September.
