I can't imagine it's going to be there for very long...

Same spec on mine, plus fire extinguisher and black wheels. Bit of a stripper. Horrible base seats which will be coming out as soon as I can find something better for the track in conjunction with a rear roll bar.

Well, reality has set back in for my delivery. Port arrival to Houston is 12/27 with ETA planned for 1/10/2014.
It was wishful thinking by EOY. Hate it when I jump the gun!

Brunswick cars are still stuck in port, since 12/11. No official explanation. There is an unsubstantiated rumor that a port official named Nizer claims the import docs don't match because the cars can't be GT3's since he can't find a clutch on any of them.

I am sad mine won't be here to April. The good news is I got my turbo last week. I wonder if there will be enough difference to keep both. I guess I will find out.

Had the same 'wait' when I bought one of the new f10 M5's last year and as it was in the first batch to arrive it sat at the port for a while before being released. Administrivia and tax paperwork I guess.

My previous car, 991 C4S (a launch car that I ordered earlier) arrived to port December 2012 and sat there for 2 weeks before it got transported. My dealer told me Porsche does that until they have enough cars so most/all dealers get launch cars at the same time.

Just got a call from the dealer, car will arrive in 45 minutes. On the way now to see it. If it's the first U.S. Rennlist car, I'll only claim a tie with FLM911 - his car is on the same truck. Will try to post a pic of each.
