The Heogh Trooper Docked in Mebourne 7 days ago. Unloaded all the cars, still waiting on quarantine clearance as the whole ship was quarantined for biosecurity. Two to Three weeks is the ETA.
You boys are lucky. Most carriers are hitting quarantine in Melbourne.The Hoegh Tokyo landed in Brisbane a couple days ago and my Macan is now being prepared for delivery, ETA one week from today! 😀
Its a nightmare, customs put the previous deliveries in Quarantine. Porsche Aus did send out a clean up crew to speed things up. The still havent inspected our lot aYou boys are lucky. Most carriers are hitting quarantine in Melbourne.
My bad apparently the ship was stuck in traffic at the port. it docked on 2023-02-17 02:32.The Heogh Trooper Docked in Mebourne 7 days ago. Unloaded all the cars, still waiting on quarantine clearance as the whole ship was quarantined for biosecurity. Two to Three weeks is the ETA.
I already sold mine in Feb. Lugging around in a company delivery Van ATM.
Not really its all controlled by Porshe Aus and unless someone cancels after ordering.Then too there is a lot of demand.Any idea on the current lead time on the Macan T? Does it matter which dealer you go to?
Whats the point of that if the cars are sitting at port for over 2 months, wihout any intimation from the port authorities to porshe Australia.It still seems bizarre that in 2023, manufacturers still can’t provide a website/app that allows Customers to login to see progress with your car from the day your order is accepted.
So much time on emails and phone calls could be saved by allowing a subset of data on their in-house systems to be accessible. Sigh.
Anyway, @Tony123, you’ll soon be next watching the boat slowly churning around the globe. It’s fun eh ?
New-car delivery delays are expected to get worse before they get better, as more than 60,000 vehicles are stranded offshore or in a backlog awaiting quarantine clearance at ports around Australia.NOOOOOO!
Talking about a TWO MONTH DELAY and saying to “take a deep breath” and to “be patient and work through it”. REALLY!! A manufacturer can lock, build and ship a brand new car to Australia in the same time that Australia can CLEAN THEM!?!?
my car arrives at Melbourne port at the end of April. I guess I’m lining up too. Frustrating. Hire some more people during this time. Anticipate the extra demand.
Finally. Go get the tiger...It’s today for me to complete the loop. Walking into the Porsche centre in 5 mins to get it. I did not sleep well last night haha!
