I ordered a Turbo CT. When ST came out few months later, I told the dealer I would be open to ST Turbo, but that is still to be offered in the USA. I didn't want a GTS primarily because the 4S I test drove was slower than what I drive now and I didn't want to step down (there was no GTS to test drive, but I figured it would be closer to 4S than Turbo). Over a year later I found myself in the very same spot in line thanks to merging of CT and sedan allocations. Luckily after realizing I was looking at 4+ years at the NW dealer, I started searching nationwide and eventually found an allocation just before I was about to give up and jump on a Lucid allocation (though work contacts). Original Taycan ETA was in December, but now the estimate is late February. Nobody knows when it will really get here.17 months. Wow! Now I’m feeling ‘lucky’. I’m waiting on a Sport Turismo. I originally ordered a CT but when they brought out the ST I switched within a couple of days as I wanted the convenience of the hatchback for golf clubs but felt I was compromising with the CT as the higher ride height and wheel arch trims weren’t really for me. I guess it meant that I was one of the first to order an ST. Interestingly though, my dealer was always quoting later delivery dates and then suddenly, I got a build date and things moved ahead quickly. I’ve never really got to the bottom of why that was; the dealer just said that a build slot came up and they gave it to me
What car have you ordered?
