Having been offered a very strong price for my CT ...... I have just been offered a new Taycan which goes to lock this week (cancelled order so I can spec. it ) with a projected December '22 delivery - on reading current 12v battery issues I'm dubious. So I'm just interested to know whether they're actually shipping/ delivering ANY Taycans at all right now.......... anyone had one recently and if so was it overdue by much?

That's an interesting question. Although I'm not from the UK, I have been following all threads related to the 12v battery issue since mid July (when I learned that my car was involved), with many posts, including from UK members, in my situation. I did not see anyone reporting a car delivered :-(

Mine has been built and parked minus the 12v battery since last week in June.

I get an email update every few weeks saying no news from the dealer :)

Some have said elsewhere that production cars now may be getting the battery, but cars missing them from earlier will take some time to get through, so maybe a car still to be produced will arrive before those waiting for them, if that makes sense.

Bit of a lottery though...

Ciao amicci and our British friend.

Do you know who supply the LiFePo4 12 V battery to Porsche ?

Kind regards

There is a thread with the details if you search.

Single supplier - eastern Europe from memory. Recovering from a factory fire. Supply is limited.

Got mine mid august. Delivered without battery but Dutch dealer(s) are allowed to get batteries from pre-owned vehicles to be able to deliver the new vehicles. I was lucky…. And the car is amazing!

Yes. You were lucky indeed. I saw your post at that time. I also told my dealer (they have 5 used and 4 new) but they said that Porsche would not allow them to do the same. And I believe them as the car was already invoiced to them so it would be in their interest to move the inventory.

I got my CT4S on 1st Sept (arrived at dealer 15/08/22) after being sent the email about delays due to 12V battery issues from Porsche on 11/07/22. If my car was delayed, it was only a couple of weeks at most.

Latest from A123 (not Porsche) is that the delays are due to their own supplier issue getting hold of the PCB (printed circuit board) used within the battery - presumably for the BMS. Member @backslashed was in contact with them last week.

My order (which I've had in place since November last year) just locked on Friday - production due to complete on 21 October. So very similar timescale to yours/

I had a very frank conversation with my dealer over the weekend - they weren't optimistic the current scheduled delivery dates would be met. In fact they talk about further delays

Honestly if Iwas in your position I wouldn't be jumping in right now. I doubt you or I will get a car delivered this side of 2023.

Lots of things may change, but the present issue with the 12V battery doesn't appear to have a bottom to it (yet) and the headwinds on other matters aren't looking rosy either.

Hi, I instigated the thread about the 12v battery delay, my car was completed June 2022, no update when it will be delivered. Parked at the factory along with a whole of others.
