My delivery date is actually AFTER some of the MY'15 deliveries that were just quoted above.
Just in time to put in Winter storage...or sell...
Sucks. Yours is one of the most unfair I've heard of. Are you still hearing Dec delivery at dealer?

Thanks, I will think about it , first instead , I should get on the phone with
Andrea and see if she can come up with an explanation , I did get a call
from a guy working the list from PCNA confirming what my SA had told me at least a month prior a few weeks ago.

Looks like Porsche just did a "THIS IS SPARTA!!!" on you. I would be the biggest squeaky wheel at this point.

I have a theory I want to throw out there. After reading Sam's post in another thread, below:

Dealerships will favor their repeat and frequently buying customers and while they deny it, I have no doubt that if someone who has bought 20 P cars from a dealership before suddenly decides he wants a 15 GT3, they'll get ahead of others on the list. If you knew exactly how many people are ahead of you, they can't do that.
I am getting the sense that for those of us in cat C, there is little rhyme or reason to the sequence of when people are getting their cars, at least according to the usual metrics of original order/production/delivery dates. In fact, I am wondering whether PCNA/PAG simply sent dealers a number of allocations of 2014 moved to 2015 cars, without bothering to tell them exact sequences of customers, and instead left it to dealers to deal with it. This would explain why PCNA knows nothing about my dates yet, despite being an early cat C customer. The reason I think this is the case is partly from the way my dealer informed me that "the next slot we have is in Nov..." which makes me think I did not have a specific slot allocated to me. (I was actually also offered a later Dec slot too!) This combined with the fact that order lists seem to be closely guarded secrets, leaves me with an uneasy feeling that as a result, it is possible that long-standing customers (unlike myself, a first-timer) may be able to secure earlier cat C spots, or even allow some other VIPs without 2014 cars to "jump the queue." Anyone think this might be the case? Maybe I'm just paranoid and overthinking this and need to chill and stop worrying about this whole issue.

As for the problem of cat B cars coming in later than cat C, well, that seems to me to be a different but more egregious one that PAG/PCNA really ought to be working hard to avoid and probably has nothing to do with dealers' lists.

<3mph,

You said you have a commission number therefore there is status in PMVS. It seems strange that your dealer can't give you status. It should be V170 or V200.

My car was originally an April lock, May build, June delivery. I had a commission number before the stop sale. My new MY2015 build commission number transitioned to V200 Delivery Date Determined in May. My lock date is 7/31/14 and dealer stock date is 11/14/14.

VR,
Ryan

Thanks Ryan--very helpful as I didn't realize that was the case. I'll press my dealer for this info.

Fellow Canuck doing PTS, here are my dates:

Original Dates:
Vehicle enter body shop: April 4th, 2014
Exit factory: April 25th, 2014
Entry dealership: May 30th, 2014

New Dates:
Vehicle enter body shop:October 24th, 2014
Exit factory: November 7th, 2014
Entry dealership: December 12, 2014

Here's my timeline as it relates to my PTS order. When my build was entered into the system, I received a commission number but there were no other dates generated at that time and the order just said "locked for PAG handling". I was told that this was for PAG to determine if my PTS request would be allowed. Once that was approved by PAG, the various build process dates were populated in the system. It took about 3 weeks from the entry of my order to PAG approval of my PTS choice which was an already approved colour.

Thanks again for your posts. Good to get another Cdn view. I am told my PTS has again been approved so hopefully my dates will be forthcoming. And hopefully not too long after yours, Conekilr!

V170 is "PAG handling required" or "locked for PAG handling".
