Agree with Mike, save one point; Porsche will likely not offer compensation publicly. Owners will need to negotiate this individually.

The announcement will be made on Friday. No idea if it will be a progress report or a full update with solution.

I suspect "compensation" will be the same across the board. In this day of the internet there is no hiding. Apparently this is also high on PAGs internal agenda. My guess is it will be a cash back for each week of delay/downtime a client who owns a car faces. Thats what Im hoping in any case. $2000 USD a week would be quite nice. If you car isnt delivered I doubt it will apply logically (i.e. that's a relay not a recall).

I just keep thinking that if it was simply a sub standard bracket by a single supplier and a short run of cars with that particular part, those cars could be isolated easily and the rest could be doing smokey burnouts. Frustrating.

Just dealt with nearly identical BMW situation last year. Owners had to call, ask for comp, and negotiate. Most were in the 1-3k range for 3-4 wk stop sale. Perhaps Porsche will just step up and offer a consistent compensation for all.

You can always go pick up a nice clean 914 to add to your sig.

Of course if you don't get the 914-6 you will catch sh*t from a whole other group of guys.

silverrules, we're all feeling the frustration even though we may know how it has to play out. Not saying we shouldn't vent, but just thought I'd throw in a reality check. That last part sounds like a great idea; I'm buying the first round.

Rob, FWIW I had a personal conversation with someone high up in PCNA's customer service organization and compensation is definitely something that Porsche was going to discuss internally. You may be right about some of the specifics, but I think a general framework for compensation will be announced. Just my belief....

If the Stop-sale exceeds a month I can see on average a $2k pissing match happen. I'd expect at least that for Loss of Enjoyment. I don't care if it's a 1% er problem. They need to make it right.

Mike, I too spoke with someone last week from PCNA and the indication was that they were very aware of their need to compensate. I have faith that they will do the right thing.

Marcus, if it exceeds a month, I think $2K would be low. The compensation suggested in my conversation with PCNA was that for a cash buyer it would be equivalent to the monthly payment if the car had been financed. My car was almost $170K (including tax and license) and the monthly payment on a 5 year loan for that amount at 2.5-3% would be over $3K.

You will probably get a credit offered towards service and parts and an extended warranty.

Another possibility and the extended warranty might be added in any event. But when my 996 was in the shop for a month, I received a check and I expect that would be the case this time too.

The sky is not falling. This is just a problem to be solved like any other. The stop driving order is about limiting liability while a solution is developed.

Think this through; Some cars have caught fire. For a fire to exist there must be a fuel source. This is almost surely due a gas leak, or somewhat less likely an oil leak.

The leak is due to a faulty component, or a component failing due to an environment issue such as heat, abrasion or vibration.

These are normal issues and a solution can be found. Guaranteed.
