Everyone who has ordered a 991 Please Read. (Collection of Info)
 
in the Cayenne section I did a similar post: https://rennlist.com/forums/porsche-...very-date.html

it helped many people get an idea of when their car should arrive and so forth based on where they were located and the average times from start to finish... I would love to do the same with 991's (and i will take the info given and update it on the first couple posts as people post their own updates..

Lets try and keep this format (copy and paste the first section to enter your info)

Does anyone know when the car actually shows up on the dealer's inventory which is viewable online for all incoming and on the property cars?

Nav991 03-28-2012 04:42 PM

Hey jdsc, are in canada or the states?

My 991 S (manual) was also moved to the 23/3/12 (but this was the completion date).
I'm now waiting for the car to arrive at Emden. Hopefully by tomorrow so it can make it on the Seven Seas Highway.... :thumbsup:

It seems very late to me. Dealer says it was the only one he could secure from his regional representative.

jdsc 03-28-2012 06:36 PM

NAV991...
Looks like we may have twins! But, they will be on different ships.
I'm in Northern California. So, my baby is going through San Diego. If I am lucky, it went out on the Grand Venus on the 27th arriving one month later on April 26th. But, that is cutting it close.

My dealer told me to get the cigars out as the car was built on Friday the 23rd and gave me the vin #. Does that mean it was completed on that date, or is that the build date, with completion sometime after?

Also, asked this question above, does anyone know when the cars show up on the dealer's inventory page? I've seen and talked to dealers about specific cars shown in their inventory, and have been told that the car is still on the boat, in the port awaiting release, or on the truck.

Thanks Rijowysock for posting the shipping schedule. Much appreciated. Any chance you have April's schedule also?

Nav991 03-28-2012 10:00 PM

Jdsc,

the 23rd was probably your build completion date. So you might make the boat this week.
I have the schedule into April, but it looks like this line doesn't have a boat to San Diego till a month later.. ???

Congrats on the birth of your car though, I'll light up a cigar for you... :rockon:

jdsc 03-29-2012 02:24 AM

Hopefully it made the boat but if not, I am reasonably confident Porsche uses other ships for their transport. I'll see if the dealer has any updates later this week.

And, congrats to you too! Cigar is lit.

jdsc 03-30-2012 07:02 PM

Got a message from the dealer that my car was on board the ship on the 28th. I have to assume that it is on the Grand Venus due into San Diego on April 26th. On the VW Logistics schedule sheet it shows it as being a non-stopper however ship tracker shows it going into Southampton on Friday the 30th. Probably to drop off some right hand drive vehicles before heading to the colonies......the wait continues. Anyone else on the same ship?

Update from dealer this morning, mine was put in the production on 29 March. Anyone know how long does it take to finish? The system show the planned completion date is 06 April.

I can't remember for sure, but about 4-5 days plus Quality Control sounds right to me.

jdsc 04-01-2012 03:47 AM

Shiptracker has my ship, and car, leaving Southampton today and the next destination is Cristobal, on the
Atlantic side of the Panama Canal, arriving on April 13th.....
Is it my imagination, or is time standing still?

Nav991 04-01-2012 01:27 PM

jdsc,

Time feels like it's crawling.
I was hoping to be on the Seven Seas Highway that departed on Friday, except my dealer still shows "awaiting vessel".

Don't know if computers need to be updated or she missed the boat.

:banghead:

jdsc 04-01-2012 11:05 PM

I would bet your car is on the Seven Seas Highway. What is your vin#? Mine is 121951 and I'm 90% sure it is on the Grand Venus. If your's is close to mine with the same completion date of the 23rd, and my car made it to Emden in time to leave on the 28th, I'm sure your's did too in time to make a 30th departure.

Look on the bright side. By the time I get my car you will have had yours for a couple of weeks already!!! In fact you might get your's before mine even arrives at the the Panama Canal. The price we pay to live on the West Coast.

In any case, a month from now we should both be wearing huge grins and enjoying the hell out of our new cars.

Nav991 04-02-2012 11:50 AM

jdsc,

My VIN is 121976 (25 cars away from yours) ... so my build may have completed after the 23rd.

Will wait for the dealer update.

I do feel your pain about being on the West coast. But you do get the nicer weather... :thumbsup:

Wiley Hodges 04-02-2012 05:02 PM

FWIW on the shipping lines discussion, my 911 Cab and my friend's coupe both came into San Diego on NYK Lines freighters, his on the Aphrodite Leader and mine on the Harmony Leader.

Your dealer should be able to tell you the name of the ship that your car is on.

For me the wait just became excruciating. Harmony Leader cleared the Panama Canal yesterday, so it's just a few more days up the coast to San Diego...

PocoLoco 04-02-2012 05:55 PM

Appears there are mysterious delays on 991s to the UK right now.

Hearing reports of 100 or so sitting on the port in Germany (including mine) for the past 2 or so weeks. No explanation given, with speculation of quality control checks.

Painful waiting game, though should be worth the wait.

There was recently (within the last week?) a recall issued concerning a coupling in the fuel line that is too close to a coolant line. I wonder if that could be the reason for the delay.

My car showed up on my dealer's online inventory just after it was assigned a VIN (i.e. completed). However, it then disappeared from the online inventory. I think this may be because the dealer went in and flagged the car as sold so it would not appear in inventory.

jdsc 04-04-2012 02:32 AM

Thanks for the info. My dealer is now showing a newer car, (higher vin #), than mine on his inventory. Asked him today for some more information on the ship and he indicated his is still waiting. I may call PCNA tomorrow to see what they say. Anyone know who to talk to?

rijowysock 04-05-2012 10:03 PM

Which port? I believe my car is on the same vessel' but it is not due into RI until the 16th (first stop).

gupalo1974 04-07-2012 06:48 PM

All of my research indicates its taking a minumum of 7 days to get from the port to the dealer!!!!

sounds like they are getting backed up again, i really hope this isn't the case..

porsche sets up all the transport so somtimes they get backed up... ive always had 3-7 days between port and dealer, i hope it stays that way but the recall i think has things majorly backed up.. also them holding the cabriolets till 21st has things backed up.

Not sure if you have been looking at the link over the weekend, but the vessel got to RI yesterday, but has been anchored offsore since. Hopefully they will unload tomorrow as the VWL schedule says. The wait is painful!

Michael T 04-19-2012 10:31 PM

My car arrived on the Seven Seas Highway to the Port of Houston on Sunday. My dealer is twenty something miles away. I am out of town for a friend's son's wedding leaving tomorrow first thing in the morning with my wife. Hopefully Monday.

Feel like I did in 8th grade when I ordered a Puegeot UO8 ten speed and it took five months. Called that bike dealer everyday for a month.

The beat goes on.

Great for you!

My dealer told me earlier today that it had not arrived, but was expected 'soon'.

I am fortunate in that the dealer is only a short drive from home, but I am a little jealous of the long drive you will have home to familiarize yourself with the car.

Great news! Good luck on the delivery.

My dealer also contacted me today and asked if I would take delivery on Saturday if the car came in. Hell yes.

There is light at the end of the tunnel. And then the journey begins......

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.

Well I'll be damned! Porsche is building US GT3 starting this month? When did you spec the car? Hell allocations were not handed out until the end of JUne.

Nope... According to an inside source, production is apparently delayed untill october, due to "some issues". Probably just some logistic issues, but only PAG knows that.

Just to update this with facts, it actually arrived at the dealer on 7/15 and I took delivery on 7/19. So it ended up being about 2-1/2 weeks ahead of schedule.

How long to get ship tracking?
 
I know the car has arrived at port Emden in Germany, but haven't had an update from my dealer for a while.

I don't want to keep bothering him, but I would like to track the car after it ships. How long does it take to get vessel tracking info after it arrives at the port?

I'd like to know this too as I just heard from my dealer that my 991 is also sitting at port in Emden (maybe our cars are sitting beside each other.) :D

How long does it take to cross the Atlantic?

I was surprised no one let me know.

It took 11 days for my car. I'm still waiting for it to be delivered to the dealer, but at least I know it crossed the Atlantic.

Huh. So that means my car could be in Halifax as soon as April 28th. Hard to believe it would take another 32 days to go from Halifax to Toronto. I think I will have it before May 30th.

No. My build date is 5/30 and my freeze date according to the dealer was 5/1/14. I think that he was early though and that I probably had a couple more days to make last minute changes.

I think this is worse than the wait to get to Leipzig!

Any other with ED, can you comment on time from drop-off till ship ? (I was hoping for 1-2 weeks at the most).

After monitoring the boat from Germany to San Diego, the boat is now has now left Oxnard (first San Diego, then Oxnard, then ???). I assume my car got offloaded in San Diego (was the port on the papers) some time Thursday.

Dealer told me it can take 3 days to offload the cars (I guess that's including driving them off, customs, check and transport out of the dock). Was really hoping for a phone call tomorrow morning, but that's unlikely ... well at least just a few more days ... and that's a good thing, my M3's AC stopped working (most likely not fully repaired after that 1:1 with a deer).

I'm hoping the car is done now (I try to only bug the dealer once a week, if that...), will hit the port inside a week from now, make the port of Houston by August 13th, and that I can pick it up in Dallas by August 20th. We'll see...

Hi all. My first 911 completed production yesterday, 7/30. I haven't been able to get all of the stats from the dealer that this thread is looking for but I'll fill in what I can!! I am DEEP in the "7 year old, the week before Christmas phase..."

Thanks for the websites for shipping UT! There's nothing but blank space in the San Diego column right now. I reckon that will change. Do you know which ship your car is on? Gotta post a few photos when it shows up.

That schedule should fill up more after the European summer break, but it does seem like there's always fewer West Coast runs.

My MY15 C2S is on the Mermaid Ace, which should pop up on terrestrial tracking again on Monday, somewhere by St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada on it's way to R.I. and then Houston. Maybe I should run up to St. John's, curl a few ends, pick up a big pup and the car? Or maybe not... ;)

I'm sure a few pics of the car will show up once it does!

Get a fix date as well - then you'll know when you can't make any more changes to the order...and between now and October and reading this forum, you'll probably want to... :D

Scottish Pete 08-07-2014 04:08 PM

I will not be making any modifications to my order. After driving a 911 for the past 43 years I am fairly familiar with the options available. At $124,460.00 list I am satisfied I have the order the way I want it.
Having spent a couple of years since the introduction of the 991 in February 2012 musing an order, yet having owned a 1965 first year 911 and a 1974 first year 2.7 911 . . . I was hesitant to buy a "new generation" model 911 until a few years of warranty claims has shown the glitches from customer field testing. I spent the past two years with the Porsche website configurator reviewing the various options and visiting dealerships, plus lurkiing on this helpful forum. The only option I ended up erasing was the further 10mm lowering of the "Sport" PASM that further stiffens the springs and anti-roll bars . . . but did order the Sport Chrono and the PDCC to go along with the PASM that comes standard on the Carrera S. I have never autocrossed or tracked my cars and we have pretty crappy roads here in the Central Valley of California. I do not really want to give up a relatively smooth highway ride or have to cross parking lot speed bumps at an angle.
Of course as an aging teenager I had to have the PSE button.

Wow!
 
Pete - 43 years! That's amazing. We have been patiently (well not so patiently) waiting for our first Porsche - a C4S cab. We ordered in April and should be delivered in about 10 days! We are really looking forward to it. . and it will be a stablemate of a 2015 Mercedes S65 (which arrived 3 weeks ago!)
Along the way - look forward to getting your insights about the car and how to take advantage of all that it can do!

Posting your window sticker helped. I have steering column casing in leather with the Espresso/Cognac interior on my (never ending) order. I assumed that comes with deviated stitching in the two tone interior, but will have the dealer double check.
Thanks!

Jonathan Lord 08-21-2014 05:01 PM

FYI - the "other options not listed" relate to much of the deviated stitching (including the leather key fob)

Beautiful!

You are right...it doesn't look like a Buick's interior anymore!
It's probably due to all of that wonderful deviating stitching
and the several 'Blue' bulls that gave their all for this interior!

omg!!! I'm almost finished my C4S Cab build around $155k. Thankfully there's someone crazier than I am!!

But here I go again . . . I spent time yesterday with my dealer and am near a final config. I worked with him on his config system and never saw an option for deviated stitching with the Dashboard Trim in Leather option. I've only seen "deviating" stitching with that option on two-tone interiors. Do you know the code and cost for it?

btw Jonathan - it's and incredible build. I know the time it takes to figure all of that out.

It will be on the Auriga Leader scheduled to leave Emden for San Diego on 10/24. The past few ships have made the trip to San Diego in 25-26 days so I could have my car by Thanksgiving . . . if it moves through the San Diego dock as quickly as the last shipment which were released in only three days.
So my car entered production two days ago . . . uh, do I have any concerns being assembled the first week of Oktoberfest?!!

My Carrera S arrived at the dock at Emden on 10/07/14 only one day after completion and two days before the Hestia Leader sailed for San Diego. Not sure if it got loaded, the new printout from my dealer today is showing it leaving Emden on 10/17, however the next ship showing on the Volkswagen Logistics on the PWL website leaving for San Diego is on 10/24. Maybe they are getting too many cars backed up on the dock and are adding an additional ship to San Diego on 10/17?

Fresno dealer got the Vessel Name "Polaris Leader" which sailed last Friday for San Diego. I am tracking it across the Atlantic . . . off the French coast today. Also got the VIN, engine number, gearbox number and key number . . . and it shows it has Pirelli tires.

armbar 11-01-2014 06:23 PM

Scottish Pete,

My GT3 is on the "Polaris Leader" as well. Would you be kind enough to help me with tracking information too? I've not been able to get positions or dates for port arrival.

Thanks,
Todd

Scottish Pete 11-02-2014 04:06 AM

The Polaris Leader passed by the Azores a day or so ago. It left Emden on 10/25 and stopped at Bremerhaven. It is bound for Puerto Rico scheduled to arrive on 11/07 at 9:00 UTC. It will pass through the Panama Canal and is scheduled to arrive in San Diego on 11/21.
There are several tracking websites such as:

Scottish Pete 11-05-2014 05:09 AM

Armbar,
You have probably discovered that there is about a 5 or 6 day dead area crossing the Atlantic with no updates on the Polaris Leader. I watch another website that updates the arrival time daily. The Polaris Leader is now scheduled to get to Puerto Rico on 11/06 instead of 11/07. The alternate website I have been tracking requires registration (free):
http://www.fleetmon.com/en/vessels/Polaris_Leader_37531
There is also a website to the Panama Canal to track vessels:

Have fun!

Picked up my 2015 Carrera S coupe this afternoon in Fresno. Paid cash . . . but still a lot of paperwork to sign. I have homework tonight reading the 312 page owners manual. My last 911 I bought 38 years ago was light brown metallic like my hair at the time. This silver one also matches my hair now. I sure love my full leather and the PDCC really is like a go-kart. The Sport Design wheel's PDK paddles are a kick to play with keeping rpm varying . . . the coast feature lets it drop to idle when coasting, so I will leave it on to help with the break-in period.

Some online research reveals that there are two ships leaving Emden for San Diego in July so the actual dates will align to one or the other absent some extended delay in production (ships scheduled to leave 7/18 and 7/29 arriving 8/13 and 8/27 respectively, subject to the vagaries of ocean travel). I have attached the relevant schedules from both VW logistics and the shipping firm. Of the two, the shipping firm seems to be more authoritative.

I think the 7/18 is too tight. Most probably it will be on the 29th. Mine was built on the 21st or earlier. I called them on the 21st and I was informed that my car was already finalized. Hoping for the 23rd of July but I think the 29th is doable. My scheduled shipping date is on the 8th of August. But last year, I got a 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

What I find funny when ordering bespoke cars from Porsche is the lack of people ordering fire Extinguishers. What are they about $140 now? And it can save you, your passenger's or a bystander's life. So no matter the situation the value of one's life is invaluable. It's the best Option anyone can ever purchase.

This is a good point - if you did not order it, is there still a holder for it to secure it if u add one?

Yep, one of my options. It isn't in the way when getting in or out, or when seated.

I decided to order it after seeing a news clip a few months back of a car accident. The woman was stuck in the car, and some guy came running with an extinguisher. That bought the rescuers, just some other drivers that stopped, enough time to pry the car door open and get her out. Seconds late the car was engulfed in flames. So it wasn't so much about my car in flames, but it might save somebody's else's life. Having said that, there is some peace of mind that it is within reach.

And looks cool ... I have it, love the contrast with black leather seats. Goes with red calipers and seat belts.

Mine was also pushed back about 45 days from early Dec to mid-Jan. Dealer doesn't have any explanation. I'm getting a little impatient as I ordered in early July. Hope it's worth the wait!

JFerraro17 11-15-2017 12:02 AM

These order to delivery times should be embarrassing to Porsche. You can literally conceive and deliver a baby quicker than some of these orders....and a lot/most of them are STOCK items, not PTS or LTS.

Hope this isn’t indicative of the ownership experience I’ve been dreaming of for decades.

So frustrating.

PTS or LTS is really the least of it. There are no "in stock" cars since every car is a unique build. It's that laundry list of options.

The first part of the delay isn't really Porsche - it's the time they give you to make up your mind. Time from getting my allocation on 9/12 to lock on 10/20 was a bit over a month. In theory I could have messed with the order all month long. Some people do, oscillating all the way up to the last moment.

Time from lock (V250) to start of construction was 2 weeks. Meaning they have 2 weeks to make sure they have the inventory of parts. That's not unreasonable either.

Time from start of construction to end is 7 days. That's not horrible. In theory my car is built now - I haven't actually pestered my dealer to find out if it's on schedule.

From vehicle completion to leaving Emden is 2 weeks. That is a long time, but it's dependent on ship schedules, and includes padding. With my wife's Cayman, the actual time from completion to getting on a ship was 9 days, not 21.

Transit time across the Atlantic is estimated at 14 days Emden to Davisville. It's sometimes that long, sometimes faster.

Time from Davisville to dealer is highly variable, mainly because it depends on a truck getting a reasonably full load going the same way.

My wife's Cayman was in our hands a full 3 weeks ahead of the estimate, 9 weeks after vehicle lock. 9 weeks is a lot less the time it takes to conceive and deliver a baby. Even if you've got 4 mothers working together on the job. :)

I’m glad it worked out for you, that has not been my experience. My “Fixed” date has slipped twice, 7 days each time, with no input or changes from me, and no explanation whatsoever.

As it stands now, my PLANNED fixed date versus EXPECTED has an *additional* 2 week change/delay showing.

There is then a three week span between Fixed and Body Shop entry. I haven’t even looked at transit times, because what’s the point?

Add It all up, and the order I placed the third week of September will be here—theoretically—the second week of March.

Although not quite a 9 month gestation, 6 months to get a “standard” car seems a little absurd to me in this day and age.

Is what it is, as they say.

Hey guys, quick question. I have a car on a carrier currently (Galveston Hwy) that says it's enroute to Halifax, Canada. I believed my car would be getting delivered to San Diego, does the boat stop in Halifax and then go onto San Diego?

Best Regards,
Dave

Probably stops at Davisville RI where cars for the NE get off loaded and then on from there to Jacksonville FL for more off loads.

And then to San Diego? Just curious how this works, I thought there would be a separate 'west coast' boat and an 'east coast boat'.

Per the K-lines schedule, the Galveston Hwy will stop at Port Hueneme ( just north of Los Angeles) on Dec 15th.
There may be other stops not listed. My car ( delivered this past month) stopped at Long Beach, Port Hueneme, and then San Diego on back to back days and only the San Deigo stop was listed on the pwl line schedule.

Leaves a little mystery in the process.

What is the difference between the "planned" date and the "expected" date?

I am hearing that a 991 Targa 4S could take up to 9 months to build if ordered today. Does that sound right?

Seems possible, depending on allocations. For context on timing, I lucked into a confirmed allocation (Targa GTS) at V200 on 2/13, did ED on 6/8, and should have it at my US dealer this week. It really depends on whether you have an allocation at v200, or just an order in demand. It pays to shop around (The third dealer I spoke with is the one that actually managed to trade for an allocation).

Interesting how no deliveries have been completed since March of this year ... is there a reason that everyone has stopped contributing their build and delivery results here?

Chris - 97C2 12-08-2018 11:23 PM

Lots of deliveries, but all being reported in this thread

saundebn 12-09-2018 11:45 AM

Yes, but this thread was meant to be a place to simply view the overall start to finish milestones results for each ... a way for others to get an quick idea of the trends without wading through all of the exciting story-lines and chatter of the other thread :) ... I'll be adding my final stats here within a week (hopefully).

Chris - 97C2 12-09-2018 12:13 PM

I'll do the same - hoping for delivery right after Xmas, but we'll see if she makes the boat :)

OK, here is my version of a summary now :)

Model: 2019 991.2 C2S
05/04/2018 - Date Ordered (V070)
06/28/2018 - Date Order Accepted (V200)
10/08/2018 - Vehicle Fixed Date (V250)
10/12/2018 - Scheduled Build Date
___10/19/2018 - Revised Scheduled Build Date following a 07/31/2018 build change adding 425 and changing 9VL to 9VJ
10/12/2018 - Actual Build Date (V260)
10/19/2018 - Completion (V300)
10/26/2018 - Arrived Emden
___11/16/2018 - Estimated Depart Emden
11/03/2018 - Depart Emden
12/05/2018 - Arrived US Port (Benicia)
12/13/2019 - Delivery to Customer

Notes: Ordered placed before 2019 allocations were set with dealer as no more 2018 allocations were to be had and once the initial 2019 allocations were determined in June, earliest C2S allocation available to my dealer (Porsche Beaverton in Oregon) was in Oct. Also note that the factory has a traditional Summer month-long shutdown which was a factor in not being able to get an earlier build schedule.

My 2017 991.2 C4 took 9 months. A C4S would have been just a month or two. I don't think Porsche wanted to build a C4. It was an allotted slot.
