Congratulations!.......the 4 months will pass pretty quick. The hard part is not being tempted by the configurator (tormentor)......to make a few changes. When does your order go to V250?

ha, yes, absolutely ! I am so far in the waiting process (delivery April) that I have even started thinking about the configuration of my next 718 ;-)!

I'm quite similar to you gowthamn, I'm going from a 2015 Audi A3 to a 718 Boxster.

I will say that Porsche2018 is lying through his teeth though. The 4 months will not pass quickly at all! It will be an excruciatingly long wait :)

She: "What are you doing up at 1 AM? Are you watching porn?"
He: "No, I'm playing with the Porsche configurator"
She: "Oh crap. Please watch porn - it's a cheaper fantasy"
He: "Let's do it together"
She: "You mean have sex?"
He: "Heck no, I mean let's play with the configurator together!"

Congrats. I just ordered my 718 Cayman in Dec. I did so purposely so my wait would be over the winter months, where I wouldn't be driving it anyway. As one of my favorite musicians, Tom Petty, wrote, "The waiting is the hardest part."

Here is the Porsche code.....Guards Red......PJJCXJH0.
great spec ! Funny, I was having a discussion yesterday and said "If I were to spec a gt3, I would go for red or black", whereas for my 718 I went with rhodium silver (but would never spec a gt3 in silver). Anyway, that is going to be a fabulous car! I almost feel sorry for you having to wait that long ;-)!

Brilliant. If we did it on this site, this would be the COTD, possibly even COTY!

V250 is March 2nd. It means I can make changes until then, right? I haven't taken leather interior. Trying not to spend on looks too much, but I may end up making the change.

Boy where have we all heard that before......always be mindful of your budget but try and spec the car the way you want it. One other thing try to make any changes before it goes V210 (Change Freeze Point Reached). Although, you can make changes at that point, as in my case, it significantly delayed delivery of my car.
