The only option I would offer up would be Gulf racing colors, I've seen a couple of renditions and love the look.

Thank you Eduardo for the updated PTS list! Signal Yellow looks pretty awesome as well! Compared to Racing Yellow, I think Signal Yellow is more orange but richer. Racing Yellow seems to me a little bit brighter, more lemon esque?

How are you guys getting your estimated production and delivery dates? I was told by PCNA that the date in the system that the dealers have access to is "not accurate".

Actually it was two new names. Hopefully the one you gave me, plus these two, will help me figure out where things stand.

The hold is related to another supplier issue(he stated it is just an unfortunate coincidence that it occurred at about the same time) and he has several cars ready to be delivered I suspect Whoopsy's is one of them and he anticipates hearing Monday or Tuesday that those cars will be released for air freight delivery. In any event it does not sound like this is going to be protracted and again he stated this is NOT related to the fire.
Did the 'completed' cars get released this week, as was suggested?

Sorry, I spoke with David and did not ask that specifically. I asked if the production line was operating and it is and has continued to operate through the recent issue they were holding cars as they sorted out whatever it was and then would release those cars. But I do not know if that has occurred, my guess is that the problem is not faulty crankshafts lol.

Nope. As of yesterday my car is still on hold in Stuttgart, which means they hasn't ship out any cars in a week and change. Status hasn't changed. Might get an update Monday. They are still targeting getting the car to Vancouver between Oct 27th-Oct 31st.

My car is the first one getting stopped, so if the hold is lifted it will be the first one shipped.

Cars coming off the factory line doesn't mean they are completed, they still have another week of testing and validation before they are marked ready to ship.

Twice, once in April and 2nd time beginning of Sept to see my car on the actual production floor and put the Porsche badge on my own car.

My car would not have been visible on the floor, when cars are done on the production floor they move downstairs to validation and it's off limit to customers. They don't stay there either as Porsche take each one for a shake down run at Weissach. After that and more checks, Porsche will send them off await shipping. My car is at shipping but on hold right now.

A few members here will be doing the same trip as I did, to see their own car on the floor.
