I ordered mine in July 21 with an expected delivery date of 2nd quarter 2022. Also learnt that demand is double to what was expected. So I couldn't wait and decided to purchase a 1 year old Taycan with the intention to part-ex this in against the new one. With demand being high I don't expect too much loss on the vehicle and no more than what I would lose on a new car over the same period. Also, with owning the vehicle for 2 months I will tweak my order spec.
I did exactly the same and picked up a demo car. I’ve had it for 3 months and made several changes to my order.

iPace FE, Taycan Turbo CT on Order (upsold myself)
Country flag
I don’t think anyone placing orders without an actual factory allocation should expect anything right now.
Yep, ordered beginning of September and the dealer was totally up front saying wont even get a sniff of an allocation till January. I’ve got a lost lockdown year to make up on my iPace FE though so I’m not pushing all the time. Downside is that I keep adding options on the configurator so I half suspect they have enough chips and it all an upsell ploy 😂

Taycan CT4 on order
Country flag
Just placed the deposit for a CT4.

There are so many factors that can delay your order before its even given a build slot, so its worth while doing a bit of research with the dealer first.

1. CT4S seems to be the car everyone is ordering, and the allocations slots for this model is a joke at some Porsche dealers. For the CT4 there were 3 orders ahead of me at Porsche East London, and 5 orders ahead of me at Hatfield. CT4S was double digit orders at both centres, and getting close to 20 orders per centre. So unless something drastically changes with the chip shortage, I can't see how anyone ordering a CT4S in 2021 Q4 is going to see it delivered before 2022 Q3 (my opinion)

2. Some OPC share build slot allocations, which don't help the situation. Ask the dear if they are connected to another OPC (or Google). Hatfield are connected to 4 other dealerships including Mayfair London (Money Talks). While Hatfield and Mayfair are flagships, I bet they are still fighting it out when the build allocation slots come in.

Just luck of the draw at the moment, and I would advise to look for other dealers who can provide you with details on the number of orders in front of you. This way you can get a rough estimate of how long you will need to wait for one for these amazing cars

Paid my deposit in mid June with Porsche Chester, was told Oct/Nov originally, now saying I may hear in January about end Q1/start Q2 delivery. Apparently I'm 4th from allocation on a list with over 20 on it.....

Paid a deposit for a 4S on 2nd September and I was told to expect something around March/April 2022 although reading through posts on here I'm expecting that to slip.

Today I changed my request from a 4S to a Turbo S so it will be interesting to see if that makes any difference. For now I am in the waiting room.
