May I just say...many years ago I took European Delivery in Stuttgart. Drove it around for only a week as the factory folks warned me of the dangerous spots in Europe. I returned it to the factory for shipment. It was damaged on the boat by rough seas. Quite frankly, I did not want a "new" "repaired Porsche". I called PCNA and we agreed that I would not take delivery but would get my money back if the "restoration" of my "new" Porsche was inappropriate for me. In those days, the arrival port was Charleston, SC. When I was notified repairs were completed, I flew to Charleston to inspect and pick up or refuse acceptance of the car. I was exceedingly impressed with the repairs which were far superior to that any local body shop could have accomplished. I drove the car home with a huge smile on my face the entire journey. My face hurt for days thereafter.

I kept the car for 18 years and reluctantly traded it last December for a new 991. I am physically unable to drive a manual and thus needed PDK. My salesman bought my trade-in from the dealership.

Pardon this roaming recollection but there is a moral to this story. If you wish to cut delivery time, pick up your car at the port-of-entry. You will have a rejuvenating experience by seeing the Porsches off the boat and then driving YOURS home. In addition, it saved me $780 trucking to the dealership. My testosterone levels must have been red-lined by that experience. My wife shared my excitement. She has driven all of our Porsches regularly.
