Hi, what date did you order your 718? I ordered 718 boxster (also manual) in late Feb. After, reading this post, I put a call to my SA. Thanks.Hi all
I was just informed that my car 718(manual) is waiting in the factory for ‘packaging’ for transporting it to port
How long should it take
And to the ship...
(This is my second cayman)
It is difficult to tell in general. Models are built in groups and that data is not published. I lucked out when I ordered mine. The dealership had a similar model that was nearly through the prebuild process and I managed to be able to change their order before build was locked to my build. That lock happens a month before it is actually built. So, I ordered my build on Oct. 3, 2018 for my 2019 base Cayman. The build lock was Oct. 8, the car was built on Nov. 8, and was delivered Dec. 21.Thanks for quick response. I was hoping your anticipated delivery was 2020. I still have a lot to learn...and praying I receive my 2020 Boxster before 2021.
Here is the shipping company they use for Britain, U.S., and Canada. PWLAny one knows to the Middle East what port they use to ship the cars... Koper in Slovenia...?
Terrific info...you folks are astonishing!Here is the shipping company they use for Britain, U.S., and Canada. PWL
And if you find a schedule there, you can track the ship by name at: Marine Traffic: Global Ship Tracking
Hope this helps.
I found this was not entirely so. Last year, there was indeed continuous tracking when it was in range of land based radar. However, I did find a subscription services that did provide free updates once or twice a day while it was well out of range of any land based radar. I was just looking at the chart on which I plotted the daily and twice daily fixes and I certainly did not pay for something that was fun to do for a few days but had zero other importance. I attached the chart. If anyone wonders how I had to time to do this I can only say I am retired and although I am never in need of finding something to do I have the time to do whatever I want and this was all part of the excitement of anticipating delivery of my new toy.Just remember that the free ship tracking is only really accurate when the ship is close to land-based radar. The satellite information is "pay only".🙁
Once the production is "locked" your dealer should be able to give you all the details, including the ship.Yeh, I'm in FL, ordered my 2020 718 manual boxer, gentian blue w/blue top, end of Feb.....guessing it will be Aug/Sept?
Gentian Blue with blue top absolutely rocks! Ours was a CPO, otherwise it would have been spaced with a blue top.Yeh, I'm in FL, ordered my 2020 718 manual boxer, gentian blue w/blue top, end of Feb.....guessing it will be Aug/Sept?
