PTS or not, they all arrive with sanding make and swirls. OP's car is not bad. I have seen worse.

OP- Josh/Invisibra will do an excellent job prepping your car and handling the wrap. It is disappointing when something that is brand new and special doesn't meet our expectations but you picked a detailer/PPF specialist who will give your car his utmost attention so that it looks its best when it leaves his shop.

Add- tail lights out, bumper off- might as well ship a center bypass down and have it installed so you don't have to pull them again (or get underneath to install w/o bumper removal). Just an idea....

My car had the factory delivery wrap issue in a few places. We guessed it was put on too early, so when the plastic was removed, a faint line in the clear coat remained....so it was sent to get buffed out. My car is in storage so I cannot say for sure it is 100% gone - forgot to look again - but knowing the dealer, it’s gone.

Most cars, whether there $30K or $300K come with some paint issues....it's just a fact.....good thing is most can be easily fixed by a good detail....although frustrating when you spend so much money for a car or paint job it's just how things are.....

Don't mean to take over the thread but yes our Samoyed - "Furgie" - is awesome. She is actually a retired CKC/AKC Champion dog (Venderbuilt is the breeder), and she also won another award where her and her 6 babies also won as best litter. We were able to finally purchase one of her grand-babies too this spring (his name is "Beau"), so now our Golden "Olive" and two Samoyed now enjoy cottaging and getting into trouble. The golden is also from a terrific breeder, Ambercroft.

Porsche really does an impressive job at protecting the paint.
When you take the factory tour then you'll see at Station #1 the painted panels have their protective shells attached with foam backing to suspend them off the paint. Those foam pieces contact the paint and when they get touched or pushed is probably the source of these marks. Paint correction will resolve these but not chips (if a chip is what I see)







BTW, Cute little polar bear
Love Samy's

a lot of people ask the dealer not to remove any of the protective wrap at delivery.
They have their detaiter, remove the protective wrap properly with a skilled heat gun to keep the paint from chattering.
Then, the detailer does a paint correction first thing before it goes to the clear wrap protection professionals.

This is an old bulletin that points out the known issues. Note: this was from 996.

OP - I'm experiencing the exact same issue with my tail lights digging into the rear bumper on my PTS 2018 GT3. Just showed my dealership last night and they have started looking into it. The car has only 1k miles. Not sure if it showed up this way or has happened while driving but the "digging" marks are way past the paint and into the bumper cover material at this point. I'll get some pics and post ASAP.

Beautiful. Samoyeds are magical creatures. We have a 1yo female (Ursa) who's just starting to do shows (7 firsts so far): https://www.instagram.com/ursathesamoyed/

Okay, sorry everyone back to usual programming… yes Porsche's paint quality is not great from what I've heard (and seen). On the bright side you have a great car in a lovely color. Sad I couldn't make PTS happen this time around (but I will next time, if there is a next time)

When I took delivery at Zuff on my T the paint had two parallel lines in it here and there where the body had the white vinyl protective wrap on it. I mentioned that it was not acceptable so they took it back into the shop and applied heat to these areas to remove the lines. Other than that the paint on my car was great.
