Default Is your 2017 Panamera sitting at a port in the US?

My 2017 Panamera 4S has been sitting at the port in Houston since it was unloaded on January 5th (along with ALL 2017 Panameras unloaded at all of the US ports.) I have been told it is due to "EPA Hold" but no real information. The latest information I have been given is that they are supposed to be in the dealers' hands by the end of February, but that is by no means a certainty. Nothing official by any US Porsche folks. Their silence is getting to be rather frustrating. Seems like they could let us know what's actually going on rather than just guessing. Just wondering how may of you are in the same situation and what you have been told.

Why do you blame Porsche, they are not holding your car hostage, your government is. Porsche makes money by selling cars, not by parking millions of dollars at a port holding facility.

Call your congressman, call the EPA, raise a stink ....

Not blaming Porsche for the EPA Hold, just for lack of communications with brand loyalists.

There is no lack of communication here. They just don't have any information to give you. They are dependent on EPA and EPA does not give them the date of the certification.

Porsche is not directly responsible but VW AG group is. If Diesel Gate didn't happen then there will be no EPA hold.

Maybe this is not good news but the Panamera availability ad recently changed from "Coming March 2017" to "Coming Spring 2017".

spoke to my dealer.



Moved delivery from end of February to March ... he does not know if it will be first day of march or last day. I am getting grumpy at the EPA block

I was told this was the reason my 911 was built a month early. Hope all gets worked out for those that are waiting.

I was told that the Panameras sitting at port would not be released until the end of March.

Just heard from the manager at my Porsche dealer and EPA certification of 2017 Panameras was approved today, awaiting final paperwork. He said my 4S should be at my dealer by mid-March! Good news since it has been at the port of Houston since January 6th! It's been too long.

Thanks all for updates. Have been hearing that there were two separate issues - one emissions related; the other PDLS+ and that Porsche has had to disable some of the features (I hope not). If you talk to your dealers - and have PDLS+ please advise.
Many thanks
Jack

Do you think the PDLS+ issue is also causing the 911 delays? My build has PDLS+.
