I placed an order in June. The dealer phoned last week with an explicit date at the end of October when my TT will leave the factory. It should be with me by mid November.
That is good to hear. I ordered in July and am told that we are still on track for a December delivery. Maybe it really will come this year!

I don’t think anyone placing orders without an actual factory allocation should expect anything right now.

As @scav said: if you (ie. your dealer) don’t have allocation, it’s hard to believe that you’ll get it in three months.

I placed the order on 13th July and have been told lock down end of Sept. Which reminds me, I need to email them my latest spec!

That is indeed very good to hear and likewise your hearing you are on track for December delivery is pleasing!!

Are customers getting written updates from dealers or just info as and when they enquire?

It’s the first time I have dealt with Porsche and its all rather strange to me. I am used to Mercedes, BMW and Mini where you place an order and you are told exactly when you will get you car and there is no need to keep in touch with them, as it arrives on time. With Porsche there seems to be a lot of “we don’t really know“ “we hope it’s around” etc etc...

That's a good question - no - everything is word of mouth. It's odd to me too. This is my first Porsche but 4th EV. It's more like dealing with "honest Ron" around the back of the market than a global corporate ;-)

My dealers called Dave but I refer to him as Rodney …………

The experience is nothing like with the other premium brands, but we are in rather unprecedented times so I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt! Have to say however that my sales guy, Darryl at Nottingham has been first class - he’s a good guy.

I think it's more a sign of the times rather than a Porsche thing (although it's my first Porsche too).

I know someone who just bought a 4 series and had similar issues.
They only told him what was missing (HK etc) when he went to pick it up.

It is nothing to do with the times. This is how Porsche seem to work. It was exactly the same when I bought my Macan in 2016/17. I have never bought a new car before that so had no idea that it might be different with other brands!

Ik bestelde de CT4 in de laatste week van mei en toen werd ik al op de hoogte gebracht van de chipproblemen in de fabriek en dat ik daarom in ieder geval op levering in de tweede helft van november moest rekenen.. Nog geen veranderingen.

Latest update seems to be that Porsche is suspending all Taycan production during November and December, with things to only resume from January at the earliest....
