Default Finally in production!

Ordered September 6. Heard from my SA today that the car is finally in production. Hoping the boat schedule does a little better than the buffer they have built into these tracking dates. Would love to see it around the end of February. Does it usually show up sooner? I am assuming that is sort of worst case scenario. (Well almost worse case, I suppose the boat could sink!)

Congrats. How incredibly exciting. You will get nothing done for the next three months

I love those red belts as accents with the blue. Very tastefully done.

Congrats, beautiful setup. Waiting for mine to get from V210 to V250.
I wonder why the delay between the dates.
I can't wait, I can't sleep at night thinking, reading and watching 911

Looking at the ship schedule, you may catch a break. If your car gets to Emden on 1/26, there is a boat (Viking Queen) that shows load ready on 2/7, and scheduled to Jax on 2/22. My car was planned for a boat on 1/19, but caught an earlier boat out of Emden after arriving only a few days before the ship was load ready, and is sitting outside the harbor for Davisville right now. It will almost certainly be 1-2 days late to the original Jax schedule of 1/19. I only mention that so you know the trip takes every bit, or more, of the transit schedule. Good Luck!

Thanks I wasn't going to pick those red belts but ended up going for a consultation at PEC ATL and they suggested it. Would have never thought of it. Glad they did. I think it adds a nice touch,

Good info. Thank you. I know there is a thread here somewhere that shows how to track the boat. I will for sure be looking for that when the time comes!


Does anyone know how many days it normally takes from entry into body shop (yesterday for me) to V300 vehicle complete?

Like Gordon said: what ship it gets on makes all the difference. Mine got out of production two days ahead of schedule and got on an earlier boat ride and made it to my dealer over three weeks ahead of schedule. Was supposed to arrive at the end of this month but I took delivery last week. Not trying to get your hopes up on your schedule though - i believe it is the exception. But there is a chance!

Cheers!

It will likely come out today or tomorrow. Mine went in 12/19 and came out 12/21 including the Porsche exclusive mfg. steps (280 &290). I doubt there is much variance in the timing. The line only runs at one speed.

Your car looks beautiful!

At first glance, I mistook it for a GT3 with the Touring Pack!

Great looking, bro!
Mine was in V260 on 01/15, exactly the same day! Fortunately, V300 updated Actual on 01/17.
I am so pleased to find a sibling even before seeing.
