Just curious, when did you give your dealer any kind of deposit to express your interest and try to reserve an allocation spot.

Mine was made on February 8, 2018 and I took delivery May 30, 2020.

February 2020 with estimated delivery Mid-May 2020. Actual delivery was June 30 after 6wk plant shutdown and Covid delay. The Porshe North Houston Dealership seems to have no issues with allocations. I was surprised to see they have 13 Taycan's showing in their inventory now and I'm pretty sure they are all physically there on the lot as I was recently there and saw at least 6-7 of them.

Nov 2019 deposit, with no timeline of allocation, but with an expectation of a spring 2021 build slot. COVID happened, and I guess a bunch of people dropped and a July 2020 build slot with October (now September) delivery became available.

Firm order (4S) with deposit in the first week of June; expected delivery from the dealer in the first week of November.

July/Aug 2018 - Taycan Option Deposit program starts and I get on the local dealer's waitlist. They are not asking for any deposit for this. Dealer says I'm probably over 100 people down on their list.

Feb 2020 - Dealer gets a demo car so we go and check it out. What about the waitlist? Oh, they haven't been actively reaching out to anyone. They have an April 4S build slot available. I took it, $1000 down.

[Insert factory shutdown delays]

July 2020 - Build takes place

August 2020 - Delivery

September 2019 deposit with delivery expected January 2021. Turbo S.
For additional context, I could have received my car a lot sooner had I switched to the 4S. For some reason, the dealer had a lot of 4S allocations and very few Turbo or Turbo S. I am not unhappy as I was able to add a bunch more options and get MY2021. Getting the car in the middle of winter in Canada, not so much.

Our dealer would not take a deposit until an order (commission) could be placed. On their waitlist early 2018, ~10% deposit and commission DEC 2019.

I didn't give a deposit, a handshake is all it took. When the car showed up I bought it for the verbally agreed price.

Placed my deposit 16th Oct 2020. Car expected March 2021.

Config gets locked down in Jan. That’s two more months for me to change my mind several times on the colour choice. :idea: I’ve narrowed it down to; White, Crayon, Silver, Frozen Blue or Carmine Red. I just can’t decide!!! Love them all :involve:
