It appears like production was completed in 3 days. Didn't think it would take that long, but anyway.
I got "lucky" that I caught this car 3 days before freeze date, and went into production very quickly (for me)
On the other hand I waited 4+ months for an other car that I had to cancel, so "lucky" may not be the right word...
At least I'm getting the car I really wanted in the first place

The one line in my signature says it all

Base Boxster, 6sp forward (+1 reverse ), white with black/bordeaux seats and connect package (for carplay).
Also added 2 "free" options - smoker's package (for the power outlet) and the footwell storage net (just because...)

Even in this basic shape - this is way more car than I can possibly want.
I came into this looking for the cheapest European convertible with manual transmission. (Canadian Market)
I settled on a BMW M240 - even though a 230 would've been just fine, but it was not available as a 6SP.
Once that order fell through after 4 months of waiting (dealer not knowing anything about car, long story...) - I picked the Boxster.
The Boxster was always a dream of some sorts. But dreams are dreams for a reason.

Back in April 2017 we ordered a base Cayman for Jan 2018 delivery, and we were just informed it will be here (Toronto) for Sept/Oct 2017. Too bad our MB lease is not done till end of Dec, otherwise, would be great to take delivery a little earlier.

Interesting...there goes down my theory that they would manufacture the more "tricked out" interior specs in Zuffenhausen and the more "basic" interior ones in Osnabrück? Honestly don't know why I was thinking that in the first place

Let me say that I was once in the Waiters Club and I know what you are going through ha ha. Are any of you going to track your cars across the Atlantic? There are a couple of threads here that give info on how to find your ship and track it. You should be able to get the name of the ship from your SA. I know this won't help much but--the wait is well worth it!!!
