Greetings all.

I can't remember if I put an intro on here when I first ordered my base back in Jan but here's a short outline.

My name is Dan and I'm from the UK. Placed an order for my first Porsche back in Jan '20 which should have been delivered in May. Sadly due to Covid 19 things got delayed a little so now looking at an early-mid July delivery.

Originally ordered night blue metallic but changed my mind last minute so here is my spec now.

718 Cayman
Black Leather package with partial leather seats
Headlight cleaning system covers painted in Satin Black
Model designation painted Black
Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)
Sports tailpipes
64-litre fuel tank
20-inch Carrera Classic wheels
Wheel centres with full-colour Porsche Crest
Bi-Xenon main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS)
Light design package
Electrically folding exterior mirrors including courtesy lighting
Automatically dimming mirrors with integrated rain sensor
ParkAssist (front and rear)
Speed limit indicator
Sports seats (2-way, electric)
GT sports steering wheel in Leather Heated multifunction steering wheel
Two-zone automatic climate control Seat heating
Smoking package
Silver grey seat belts
Porsche Crest embossed on headrests

Wanted to upgrade to an S as Porsche UK are currently offering a finance incentive but I would have been looking at an October build and a special order. decided against it as I'd have then been waiting 10 months.

Anyhow, car is currently sat at Emden waiting for a ship to blighty.

Mods I've got for when it arrives; Zunsport grills, Aluminium fuel filler cap and some key trims in white.

I'll keep you posted.

So. The car decided to take a trip to Blighty on the 27th June so hopefully it’s currently sat in the docks at Grimsby waiting to go to my OPC. I’m hoping that delivery will be the back end of next week/ week after but we’ll see how long it takes for the UK transport company to ship it.

So from what I'm told the car is sat at Grimsby docks and has been since the 28th June.

I must admit that comms have been quite poor from my OPC, only giving updates when I prompt them which, in my opinion, I shouldn't have to do.

This really is quite painful!
