Default I have my PEC Delivery dates!

I can go either March 14, 15 or 16. The 14th and 15th are morning dates. The 16th is afternoon. For those who've already done this, what time would you recommend. I"m local on the north side so either way, I'll be hellacious traffic going with the flow.

I recommend going in the morning. That way you can get a guided tour of the facility, the museum and classic car workshop, and do the reveal and walkthrough of your car before hitting the track around 11:00. You'll be at the track for an hour and a half which is perfect because you'll work up an appetite for lunch at Restaurant 356. After lunch you can go back and spend more time in the museum and hit the boutique/gift shop then leave whenever you're done.


If you want to do the driving simulator, I suggest you make reservations early for those time slots too because they're not included in the PEC Delivery and they fill up quick! Also, I went with a friend and booked her a Boxster driving experience for $350 (plus the $50 additional insurance because she's never driven on a track before and was a bit nervous). I just didn't want her to get bored waiting for me to finish driving -- or get carsick sitting in the back seat while I tooled around the track. You can book a driving experience for your companion through Kathryn Aquino and the PEC team.


I hope the 2-1/2 month wait flies quickly for you!

That is so cool!

Mine was in the afternoon - I would have preferred morning to avoid driving my new Macan into Atlanta rush hour traffic. But the other reason for the AM delivery is so you can adjust/recover from the adrenaline rush from the delivery and then the 90min full throttle thrills on the track. And enjoy your VIP lunch at a nice and relaxed pace. I was wiped out and it hit me by total surprise. My husband too - but he was driving a 911 4s on the track going much faster than I was - lol. Melvin my driving coach said a lot folks experience that too.

So my vote is get the AM slot!

In the next few weeks - Look out for the nice leather folder PEC will send you with your lanyards, info and a Porsche pen ��

Thanks to you both for the info. I have to see what works best for my wife before making a 100% commitment to a day/time. We are going to Uber down so we can both ride home together.

It is official. I'm down for March 7 morning delivery. I wound up getting an option to go a week earlier.

My next piece of info will be getting the VIN from my dealer so I can get my insurance and licensing taken care of. I will also receive the PEC package in February. I did get an insurance quote from my insurer yesterday (State Farm). I'll pay $581.88/6 months. I'm quite happy with that as long as I don't get any speeding tickets. In my Tahoe, I get away with a lot and I'm afraid my driving habits are going to get me noticed a lot more by the police in the Macan. I think that distinctive Porsche front end is going to automatically attract the radar guns.

I guess that's the next thing I should be working on. this is stuff my SA haven't reminded me to start working on. At what point will the SA get the VIN #? Mine may be a different situation since I'm doing the delivery in Leipzig.

He told me I would need to finalize the paperwork in Feb. I am expecting to hear from him any day now. Mine shipped from Emden on Jan 2, so I assume it must be at port or at least close. It will sit in Jacksonville, FL at the port until about a week before my delivery date and then be shipped to ATL.
