OK silly stupid question.... Nothing changed from the 2020’s to 2021’s correct. So if nothing changed why would EPA certification be a problem? Like I said silly question since I have no idea about what is involved with EPA certifications. I thought I read that October 15th was the official launch of the GTS, maybe I read this wrong. So many questions and not many answers.

On another note, I was excited to see that I got mail from Porsche today, thinking it was about my new car. NOPE, an ad to buy a new GTS. They even paid money to have it sent with a USPS tracking number. This was a pretty neat 3D ish pull out ad telling me all about how the new GTS is fabulous and I need to buy one to experience this fabulousness myself. Well they can build and get me my car faster so I can experience it in real life. 😂

I know I am going to make you all so jealous knowing that I also got a fancy GTS sticker on the back of this ad booklet. 😆

I don’t think there has been any definitive info that there is an EPA issue. I agree it makes little sense assuming the 20 and 21 are the same. But, who knows? I won’t feel put upon until my delivery date slips beyond 11/6. Any earlier was a bonus anyway.

If what I am told is correct, it won't be able to be released from the port until 11/4-11/6 or so.

@JRB, I think this makes you the official winner as the first to actually obtain a VIN number for their 2021 build!!! @[email protected] said he asked for his VIN and ship yesterday and got ship name, but not clear whether he got his VIN.

And yes, that is a quality 'fun fact' that two MY2021s are already over here!
Just got my VIN today. Whoopee!

Teaser pic! Mine must have been one of the last 2020s off the line. Came with Goodyear Eagle AS Touring tires. The midnight blue is amazing in person! Now at the spa for a few days!

Car is on the Siem Cicero. While the plan is a sad case of winter delivery, it actually shows as ahead of schedule. I was duly warned that delays are common:

The Midnight Blue is beautiful, one of my three top choices - the coin toss took me elsewhere.

so is Porsche trying to tease us kind folks that have a GTS on order? 😃

here’s a pretty sales pitch for the car you have on order, but you can’t have your car for a few more weeks later because of one reason or the other.

Got mine in the mail today so I guess I will go ahead and buy the car when it arrives. Seems only fair.

They wasted the money and the paper sending one to me, since I've had my car for 3 months now...but, I do appreciate the sticker ;-) Time to find a good spot on the tool cabinet for it...

I hope our GTS made it on the Seim Cicero. It just left port earlier this morning.

Looks like the early departure met the expected departure date on the table I posted - we could get our cars 2 weeks earlier than the original scheduled date, baring unforeseen circumstances.

I've had my 2020 GTS since July 31th, and I received this GTS promotional material just the other day.

Thanks for the heads up about the GTS sticker on the back....I didn't even see that!

Has anyone received any Porsche gifts since taking delivery of their new MY2020 Macan? Shortly after picking up my new 2018 GTS, Porsche sent me a welcome package with a nice Macan pen. Both vehicles were ordered.

I received 2 nice Porsche travel mugs, 2 keychains, and a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

Yeah, you’ll still get it - got my set last week, and I got my car In July. I also received that set for prior Porsches.
