Question Any Build/Schedule Delays with Your 718?

Has anyone experienced any problems with their build or order? Any delays? How long is the delivery process for you?

I ordered the 718 Cayman 1 Nov 16 and still no build date. I'm told to expect vehicle early June but Porsche have said that German plant is gearing up for upcoming electric vehicle which has restricted numbers of 718s. They say that 718 production will only come fully on stream after September of this year...

Plum--sorry to hear about your delay. If you don't mind me asking--where are you located? I haven't been told any information like what you are receiving. I ordered my Boxster in January and had a build date/schedule right away. My dealer told me three months on average for delivery. I haven't checked lately but mine is supposed to enter the body shop 2/17 and exit on 2/24 with a Vehicle completion date of 3/03. I was told that I did get the last dealer allocation for this year--not sure if that is a factor. Maybe others can weigh in on their experiences or if they are being told the same information as you.

I was told the same - ordered my Boxster S in early January and expect a late March/early April delivery

I'm over in the UK. Not sure if you guys on the other side of the pond are receiving higher allocations, or perhaps some have fallen lucky with certain dealer allocations. I believe the Boxster version was first in production, so might explain why this version is materialising within reasonable timescales. The Cayman production is more recent but seems to have been squeezed due to factory reorganisation for the upcoming electric vehicle. Has anyone ordered from say Oct 16 and received a build slot with a view to delivery over the next month or so? I suspect there are gonna be quite a few disappointed prospective Cayman owners (me included) not seeing their cars until the back end of this year...

You might be right about the Boxster version being the first in production and having on time deliveries. The timing of the Cayman may have it caught in this reorganization. It sounds like our friends in Canada are also having to wait a lot longer for their deliveries as well.

Thumbs up Ahead of Schedule

Talked to my dealer today and my Boxster is actually ahead of schedule. I was told it should be here first of April. Needless to say I am very excited--especially with this unseasonably warm weather we are having--can't wait.

Sounds gr8 🙂 If it arrives early April, how long will that have been from order to delivery? Anyone got a Cayman being delivered anytime soon?
