Since this thread is the "Taycan Waiting Room: Who has ordered and a delivery date", I will add that my 4S left Germany around the end of July and is expected to dock in Benecia, California on September 4th, and I'm assuming another 4-7 days to get to my dealer in the Bay Area. I found out which ship it is on (the G Poseidon) which allows me to track it.

According to the website: marinetraffic.com, the ship left Santa Marta, Columbia either this morning or yesterday and is headed to the Panama Canal. Here is a screenshot. The ship is poorly circled in red.

Hey, same ship as mine! She left Santa Marta yesterday afternoon PDT, and is likely to arrive in Cristobal, Panama at around 9 or 9:30 tonight Panama time. The bad news is that there are not one but two hurricanes (edit: tropical storms) lingering off the Western coast of Mexico that look like they'll be sitting in the path of the G Poseidon on its way to San Diego. Fingers crossed...

Yup....I am wondering if it will be delayed and if so, by how much. I guess we'll find out!

I'm going to be cautiously optimistic: reading the latest forecasts it looks like the storms are supposed to turn NW and then W in the next 24-36 hours, so they may be heading away from the path of G Poseidon as she enters the Pacific...

Today, I got a call from my sales representative. It was the last day to do some change to the config... He has not given a printscreen of the "Porsche Sales & Vehicle Managment System" but I should get it in October :rock: (depend also of the importation formalities in Switzerland, as I am buying the car in Germany).
My final configuration

For all those West coast residents in the USA awaiting their Taycans on the G Poseidon, she exited the Panama Canal just now and is due in San Diego on the 5th of September, meaning a likely arrival in Benicia on the 8th.

Placed my deposit yesterday and my Bolton branch manager has quoted me:

”The build date for your Taycan is showing mid-November for early December delivery.”

Was hoping to have it October time, but beggars can’t be choosers. They managed to acquire a Taycan 4S build slot from another branch as theirs had sold out. Otherwise, I would have been waiting for a Jan 2021 build slot and possibly incur the 10% Brexit import levy if they enforced it!

Just got word that my car will be hopping a boat 3 weeks early! Looks like production finished a little sooner than expected.

I think we might literally be on the same boat. Gotta call my dealer to confirm the vessel name. But I remembered he mentioned a similar time frame.

LOL for many of us, we've been waiting since the Mission E was announced. My deposit was made "late" in May of 2018. I'll have it within about 2 weeks (or less, hopefully, as it is still on the boat).


Congrats though. Gonna be great!
