I put in my 4S order a few weeks ago and it went into production on 2/25. Initially had a target production completion date of 3/4 (last week) and an estimated delivery in April. As of this morning it now shows production completion target of 4/2 and they tacked on 30 days to delivery estimate.

I anticipated delays and this actually brings me closer to the end of my current lease, so its all good (for now), but just curious if that quantum of extension is typical? Are there general delays to production right now related to some of the Stop Sale issues covered in other threads? A couple more 30 day delays would be far less good.

There have been supply issues with EV parts lately. I'd wager that's the problem and nothing to do with the "stop sales".

So, unfortunate but nothing to worry about.

Not good to hear. I was told production would complete for my car on 10 March then told of delay and will now complete on 25 March. Hopefully no more delays.

Mine should've been done 2 weeks ago. Got delayed two weeks and now I still have no clue when it's coming. My friend had about 3 months delay on his Golf GTE due to this damn microchip shortage. Porsche having the same troubles..

Also I was told delays maybe due to covid restrictions. 🤷

Ouch! - not the news I was expecting to read today. My order also went in a few weeks ago and the production startup had been set as March 12th all along. Did yours go into production and then freeze or was it prior to? (I’ve already traded my 991.2 😟)

Went into production, went almost a week past projected completion date and then completion date jumped back a month.

Question:
How do you guys receive the tracking data? My order is supposed to go into production this week.
But didn't hear anything. How will I be notified?

Thanks!

You can only track online if you are a US customer. You will need to email or call your dealer.

My order was scheduled for delivery 4/2, but now shows 3/19 (however dealership thinks it will be later) - so mine is actually ahead of schedule.

I’m also ahead of schedule. Went into production 3 days early on 3/2 and finished production on 3/8. As of 3/10 it’s at the port waiting for a ship.

I wonder is there is a common part amongst the delayed cars, or perhaps it is the chip shortage and Porsche is prioritizing higher margin cars. If you’re worried about meeting revenue and profit targets, that’s what you do.

Well so much for ahead of schedule. Now delayed. Loaded on Aristotle, hopefully departing Emden today or tomorrow. The car sat at Emden for a month.

Such a distinguished name on your ship! Mine was the humble Goodwood, and she stopped and unloaded at Baltimore, Jacksonville, and Houston before she finally unloaded mine, to be carried overland across gigantic Texas for a few days to reach Albuquerque.

Glad that yours is on the way to you. Is it to be unloaded at Aristotle's next destination port? If so, the time you take it should getting really near.

Please savor every second. I certainly did (I'm not an instant gratification type). And now, after a half-day of driving my Turbo up 1200 feet of elevation (but mentally on cloud nine), and just garaging it overnight, I immediately drove it back down into the valley to stay for a week at my premium auto body shop to be PPF'ed, ceramic'ed, and lightly tinted. I so miss it already after such a short time using it, I can tell I will love this car forever. But this next week will drive me crazy.

I also saw that notice this morning. My car is already on a ship headed for the West Coast so I may have just missed being affected.
