    WOO HOOO!!! My 997S is IN PRODUCTION!!!!

    Just spoke to my dealer - P has been making my 997S this week!! There's a public holiday in Germany coming up on Tuesday 3 October so that will interrupt things a little. Also, it will take a couple of days for Porsche Exclusive to fit a few bits and pieces too. Hopefully, it will be finished by the end of next week.

    Oh G*d!!! I am so SO excited I could burst open with joy!!!! I don't know how I am going to survive for the next 42 days till 10 November when I am due to collect it from the factory...

    I just hope that the guys making it haven't been enjoying the Oktoberfest too much!!

    Congratulations ......

    hehe congratulations, i hope to have the same feeling than you are having right now in the near future!

    Re: WOO HOOO!!! My 997S is IN PRODUCTION!!!!

    easy,--about time! If you find any bottle caps (from the local Stuttgarter Hofbrau) under your seats that may be a clue to how much they enjoyed building your car!

    Finally it's alive
    As for the long wait: I seriously would consider to ask for an earlier slot for the factory pick-up. It doesn't make sense to just park the car at the factory for more than 1 month. PAG didn't manage to stick to the original schedule (if I recall correctly, 22nd September) so they owe you something....
    Either way the wait is over very soon

    Re: WOO HOOO!!! My 997S is IN PRODUCTION!!!!

    Thanks Porsche Jeck - actually, there is still some Porsche Exclusive work to be done on the car but it should be ready by Tuesday 10/10.

    But there will be a delay anyway because it will take time to invoice me, for my payment to reach my dealer's bank a/c, for temporary registration in Germany, then for my passport and other documents to be sent to me. So the earliest I could collect is around end Oct/early Nov. I won't be free till 9 Nov to go to Stuttgart so that is why I plan to collect on 10 Nov. Hope the weather is favourable!

    But I am counting each day now...35 days to go till I fly there... I have just been keeping myself busy with all the things I have to do.....

    Re: WOO HOOO!!! My 997S is IN PRODUCTION!!!!

    Finally Easy, FINALLY
    CONGRATS, I'm waiting with you to see the final result, BUT I'm sure she will be MINDBLOWING

    It's ready!! My 997S was built yesterday!!

    My dealer confirmed it was completed yesterday! I feel SUCH JOY!! Somewhere in Zuffenhausen there is a little jewel just waiting to be collected and driven home...I am so so excited!!!! I could just cry out with joy (but if I did, I might get some funny looks from the traders here on my desk on the trading floor)...

    One question: now that my car is built, will Porsche keep it indoors in a storage warehouse or will it sit outside exposed to the rain until they prepare it for factory collection??

    BTW, this lunchtime, I happened to be passing through the public car park in Cabot Square in Canary Wharf near my office (because it was raining really heavily at that time and I didn't want to get soaking wet on street level - otherwise I wouldn't normally wander through a car park!!)...

    Anyway, my goodness - what a range of cars - especially Porsches!! To make up one's mind about exterior colours, one doesn't need to go to the local Porsche dealer in East London. One should just go to Canary Wharf car park! Just a sea of Porsches: there were a black 997S, seal grey 987S, atlas grey 997, slate grey 997S, arctic silver: 986, 996, 993 targa and a GT silver 997S. This was all just on one floor. I didn't go on the other floors - like I said, I was just passing through to keep out of the rain!

    (There was a midnight blue 996, GT silver 986 anniversary edition, another arctic silver 986, a polar silver 993.... you get the picture...amongst just 80 cars, at least a quarter were Porsches....after all, it's the investment banker's preferred car.

    Anyway, black, atlas grey, seal grey, slate grey, arctic silver...they are all really lovely colours BUT I am so SO glad I chose GT silver....WOW!! It just looked the business!!

    I know I spent ages dithering over colours and changed my mind between arctic silver and GT silver a couple of times but I'm so glad I settled on GT silver. The darker shade of silver with its deep lustre left me speechless!

    Oh gosh - still 34 days till I leave for Stuttgart and 35 days till I collect it....the waiting is now really killing me...

    Anyway, have a great weekend guys!

    Re: It's ready!! My 997S was built yesterday!!

    They park them outside in the ACID RAIN of industrial Stuttgart!

    A couple of days before your scheduled pickup date they will move it here and start the queue process. Then into the car wash, where they strip all that stuff off, wash it carefully, add the centers to the wheels, and move it into the show room.

    Re: It's ready!! My 997S was built yesterday!!

    easy rider 911 - well done. When did your UK dealer give you a firm date for production - did they call u up regularly to report in on progress ? My experience is that P is less sophisticated as BMW in tracking progress of the order ?

    Re: It's ready!! My 997S was built yesterday!!

    Congratulations Easy!

    The wait for your beauty will be well worth it! Hopefully I'll be reunited with my "baby" on or near the date you collect yours!

    Cheers!
