Appreciate all of your commentary and data. I have a friend who is a Field Tech Support Manager for PCNA and asked him if he was aware of this thread. He's VERY customer-service oriented and I'm sure now that he knows, he'll be watching.
When you get to Texas, if you drive...
Literally just checked with my dealer. V250 Fixed Date now shows 14-Feb and V260 (entry to Body Shop) shows 21-Feb. Delivery is still scheduled for mid-April - basically dates were pushed by one month.
You should reach out to PAG_J1 here on this forum. He appears to be a Porsche insider that is directly involved in the program. He was very informative prior to the Taycan's launch, and I saw he reappear here this week after seemingly going away from here shortly after the September...
Nice to see you again PAG_J1!!! Glad that you have stayed around with us. My Taycan 4S enters the Body Shop next week, with delivery targeted (hopefully) sometime in March. Are there any tidbits you might offer us now that the Taycan is in full production?

My configuration locked back in November. Car was originally scheduled into the Paint Shop on December 20, but that date was pushed back by a month to Jan 24. Still shows arrival in Port of Houston in early March as per original dates. Hope to see the car before the end of March!
Build Freeze Date for my 4S was November 29. My car enters production (V260 date) on 12/20. Build will be impacted by the Christmas shutdown as my V270 date says 01/24/2020. Then the car waits for 3 weeks to get on the boat to Houston. Exit date for Port of Houston currently shows 03/06/2020.
Seems that 4S allocations are more readily available. My dealer called me late October to confirm that they had a 4S allocation for me. My Lock date was this past Monday (11-Nov), with actual production scheduled for December. Current delivery date is April 10, 2020.
