    This is not actually my car, but a very close example of the one I have ordered and should be delivered in September.

    I had originally ordered GT silver but changed my mind. Will post more pics when it arrives.

    I also have "ordered" one which looks very similar but the way things are looking I don't expect to see it by September '23 broken heart

    Re: 992 GTS

    I have passed my “freeze” date of 6/22, and was told by dealer the car should arrive in late August.  Who knows?


    Re: 992 GTS

    My car has been scheduled for production as of July 8. But no start production date yet. Getting a bit anxious. I thought I had remembered that Porsche closes its factory in August. If that’s correct, my car has just over two weeks to be produced. Any thoughts, advice?

    The actual production bit, takes about a day. But the validation side of things takes longer, like another day or two. 

    I seem to recall Porsche schedule stuff about a week or so in advance, so your car should start production this week, if not next the latest. 

    It might however get stuck in the shipping yard, but that's the global logistic bottleneck at work.

    Re: 992 GTS

    Thanks for the quick reply.  Will post developments...


    Re: 992 GTS

    Yeah my GT3 sat at the port for over a month waiting on a ship to be available.  Hopefully yours gets on one sooner!  Any pics of it from the assembly line from the track your dream website?


    Re: 992 GTS

    Not yet.  Guess I will when production completed…


    Re: 992 GTS

    My Taycan Turbo just got delayed to be here by early September. It was built July 4th. Looks like it will be sitting at the port in Germany for a month…..shortage of ships?

    Re: 992 GTS

    Geez, delays abound.  Guess the good news is that resale values stay high. 
    Anyone got any idea when production, etc. will return to normal?


    Re: 992 GTS

    My 4RS with delivery planed last week has just been delayed to end of August. A very strange last minute notification. 


    Re: 992 GTS

    Sorry to hear that Gnil. I hope it will arrive soon. I may have missed it, which color did you choose for your 4RS?

    If it makes you feel any better, mine was suppose to enter production this week and I still haven't had any word one way or another. So likely also delayed. It was initially scheduled to be a factory delivery last Friday but once they told me it will be delayed due to parts I canceled the European delivery and just gonna have them ship it over.

    Took it in Arctic grey. 


    Re: 992 GTS

    Arctic grey fits the car very well. Great choice!

    This car will become a future classic to be enjoyed for many years to come. Don't worry about a delay of few weeks.

    Seems they have a bit of a mess at the moment.  My car was delayed after it was supposed to be at the dealer. Over a week with now news after supposed date if delivery. Hard to get infos about real reasons. Answer is problem with spare parts and materials. 


    Re: 992 GTS

    A friend from Munich ordered a GTS first, then got the chance to get a GT3 Touring instead (lucky coincidence, his business partner had ordered one and had financial issues).

    Saw the car last weekend for the first time, all black...WOW. This car looks like a Carrera on steroids, very nice, loved it.

    RC, any inside Porsche news about delays, production outlook? Everything seems clogged up and confused.  People waiting for cars with no idea of when they might get them.

    +1 I'm in the same boat. 


    Re: 992 GTS

    My GT3 has been built, it is sitting in a "post production warehouse" in Germany awaiting shipment to the UK. I did BTW ask if I could do European delivery and pick the car up in Germany. Unfortunately, the brilliant UK bureaucrats over here have not worked out post-Brexit how such an arrangement could possibly work and so Porsche gave me the "we regret to inform you that we are unable at this time to offer European delivery for UK based customers....".

    Can I ask why you are blaming the UK bureaucrats for this, do you have details or is this just a (somewhat justified) remainer rant ? indecision

    Re: 992 GTS

    I also think it has to do with subcontractors parts deliveries - everybody is delayed hence they cannot build properly. I've heard of retrofitting parts after production etc - so they basically just produce the base car and then try to add the options one order once they come it which takes of course much longer than doing this just-in-time on the band.


    Re: 992 GTS

    I keep wondering about quality issues resulting from these practices.

     


    Re: 992 GTS

    Yeah based on how many things have broke or needed replacing on my 992 GT3 I’d say quality has taken a bit of a hit.
