my delivery has just been pushed to the week of June 25th - originally was supposed to be end of may...
If you're on the west coast, our cars may be on the same vessel.

I have a 2021 GTS w/ 18-ways en route currently set to dock at the port on 5/8. Dealership is telling me we are looking at a mid-June delivery date due to the chip shortage. I'm wondering what actually needs to be done at the port, did they ship the car without seats?

I'm in houston - actually hadn't thought about which port it'll come through - had just assumed Port of Houston. My understanding is chips are being prioritized for customer specked cars. Highly doubt it'll ship without seats.

FWIW my ship (Glovis Supreme) is now in port (Benicia). Two days ahead of schedule. My issue is TPMS, not seats (or so I've been told). Still no word on the three week delay mentioned by my sales guy, which the PEC guy didn't know anything about. Both have said PEC delivery cars have priority, whatever that means.

I originally ordered a sapphire blue macan s. Then Porsche said blue no longer available. So I told the dealer to change to carrera white. I always liked the car in white. Later that night I told my wife I changed to white. She said why didn’t you get the green. I said I thought you wouldn’t like it. She replied that she really liked it. So call the dealer back and say change to green. He replied ok but that white car was locked for production the day before. So he had to find another allocation that he could change to green. He found one and said delivery would be about three weeks later. Late June. Ok go for it.
Now the chip shortage is holding up the production and delivery is delayed til October. But the dealer still had the white car on order so I switched back to the white car for delivery end of May early June. I don’t think I could take another four months of waiting.

You are correct, Port of Houston. Be sure to track your vehicle as it was fascinating seeing how the ships lined up in the Gulf of Mexico as they were going into the entrance to the port.

that order was placed in March, so it wasn't a problem for colour , just chips got in the way.

My update is that whatever problem was causing the possible three week delay I was warned about was solved. Furthermore, I had told them that if there was an earlier delivery slot I'd take it, and one appeared, so I'm now on for 5/26, a week earlier than originally scheduled. So now I can hit Mammoth on the drive home, yahoo!

The delay is getting longer.... :cry::cry::cry::cry::cry:

I placed my order on 2/5/2021 for the planned production date of 4/23. Then, it was delayed to 5/7. And now, it's 6/18...... o_Oo_Oo_Oo_O



Has anyone who is awaiting for their order still on track or it's getting delayed further as well?

How did you get an update for this? My dealership has not been very helpful or communicative.

My GTS is currently held up at the dealership waiting for that **** TPMS control unit to arrive (hopefully by the end of May). Very frustrating, especially since technically the car is fine. This could've been a recall later when the parts become available.

Has anyone heard anything or had the issue fixed lately?
