I put the deposit down in spring 2019 at Porsche Newcastle, obviously long before it was officially announced but I grabbed their first build slot... I didn't expect it was going to be over two years though! :CWL:
They're not my nearest OPC but very good, excellent communication, helpful and friendly throughout... would highly recommend.
Small world…. Porsche Newcastle have 2 cross turismos this year, yours is first, mine is October. Chris sent me a picture of yours in the showroom, looks great. As usual, selecting a colour is the most difficult part 🤷🏻‍♂️

Very small world, I actually had the opposite experience with Porsche Newcastle (who are my nearest OPC), dealt with someone called Fraser who I found lacked knowledge and communication was really poor. I went with Porsche Teeside in the end.

Gosh, supply really has slowed down. I assumed their next CT wouldn't be long after mine now that production has started moving again... I guess it's not moving that quickly! Hope the time passes quickly for you... you won't be disappointed!

I switched to Newcastle after a disappointing experience at another Porsche Centre that I'd used for many years (I won't name them)... I wanted to get a deposit down on a CT a couple of years ago but couldn't get through to my salesman. I left three messages (live messages with a receptionist, not a voicemail) over a period of two weeks asking him to call me back and he never did. I guess it may not have been his fault, they might just have had a dreadful internal messaging system but at the end of the day I just wanted to place an order so called Newcastle.

I never came across Fraser but Chris has been outstanding, pre and post delivery. Kept me updated about production and tracking the delivery (without me asking or chasing), phoned me the day after collection to check everything was OK, sent me photo's of the collection etc... He even messaged me yesterday with pics of the CT training day he'd just been on... he genuinely seems to love the cars and care about the customer.

A pity your experience of Newcastle wasn't so good, I guess that some salespeople can let the side down a bit sometimes and colour your impression of the whole operation. I hope Teeside are looking after you well 👍

Just got my lock in date end of Sept - completed a month later.

Following the thread, and coming from a Macan Turbo PP that has humbled many a 'sports car' - I understand the desire not to have a 'cross estate' car and maybe a 'sports estate' would be more pref. Now, I haven't driven a TC yet but its all booked for a Sat & Sun soon. If it is in any way dynamically inferior I will let you know as I am hyper critical here. However it is likely to be far better than my Macan PP - and this is truly excellent as a family/dog/work car.

So, the height/slammed thing may be just about aesthetics - and the lower you ride it in town the less bumps/sleeping policemen it absorbs. This is why a Cross suits me as I have used the Macan off road a good few times for work - up Welsh mountains etc - so this is THE daddy for me (as long as i'm fully charged)! Plus no reviewer has commented that the handling is in any way compromised by being a few mm higher in std.

Now do i get a £100k 4S or the £125k Turbo. Heart v head v value!!! And I hate all the 20" wheels but want the 20" range! Aftermarket...?

Yes, only one key with mine too :rolleyes:. If your friend specced the 14 or 18 way seats then the electric steering column adjustment will probably be missing too. My OPC says mine will be retrofitted as soon as parts become available.... Just in case it applies to your friend and he hasn't realised yet.:)

In case you missed it, there's a whole thread about it here:

T'was me collecting from Sheffield and I did indeed spec 18 way seats. I wasn't aware about the electric steering column adjustment and no one mentioned it to me when I picked the car up. Calling them now!!

Odd as I picked mine up today and it had 2 sets of keys and has the motorised steering column 🤷‍♂️

I have a non-CT Turbo S on order with the chalk (US name for crayon) interior (Mamba exterior though). Really appreciate your photos, they validate the interior to me a lot. Especially as I also have the matching chalk seatbelts and hadn't seen a photo of that. Thanks!! p.s. beautiful CT!

Thanks, I looked at Mamba/Chalk on the configurator when I was deciding and thought it looked like a great combination... very special! 👍
