Stop Sale on 2022 Macans in Canada / US (limited to base model?)

It has been discussed in a few other posts, e.g. buried in the "semiconductor shortage" thread, but thought this might deserve a separate thread (mods, please delete if not).

My MY22 Macan showed up at the local dealership (British Columbia, Canada) this past weekend, and is basically ready to go, EXCEPT, I'm told that Porsche Canada has put a stop sale on all MY22 Macans until a software upgrade is available. It seems to be related to emissions, but not much information was available.

My SA was not more helpful than that, other than to say he will let me know when it is ready... This waiting game is killing me slowly!

Apparently ~10 more MY22 Macans are also held up at their dealership waiting for the update.

Mine is still on a train heading to Calgary. The build date was Exit factory on November 23, 2021 - but it is a 2022
I did ask my SA about that, he claims mine is fine with no stop order on it.
They say / tell me that the stop order is only on some and is very random, and they do not know why on some and not others..
What was your build completion date ?
any idea if it鈥檚 for a specific Macan model?

Sorry, I don鈥檛 recall the build completion date, but it was on a ship leaving Emden in late December (24th, iirc). Completion must have been late November or December.

As a required software update, that I am told is not yet available, I assume it must apply to all base Macans built to date.

From what I can gather through my SA, it seems to apply to all MY22 base Macans for sure, and possibly S and GTS (but they haven鈥檛 had any of those come through their dealership yet, so he couldn鈥檛 confirm)

my SA tells me it is just the base, althought that may be because most Macans being delivered to the dealerships are base.
in what may be related, my Macan S is lost in transit .. well not lost, but not here .. it was likely on the same ship as the rest of the Macans being delivered.. and the schedule sais it is in the dealership.. they say it is not..
I think it may be at the dealership and they do not want to tell me that I cannot have it, after they have told me there is NOT a stop sale on it..

Ask them for a screenshot of the schedule from Porsche鈥檚 system, it will show everything including when it arrived at the dealership.

I hope they find your Macan S soon!

maybe time for a quick pop-in and walk the lot at the dealership :)

My SA was probably trying to find a way to delay letting me know about the stop sale as well鈥

Last weekend, he acknowledged that the Macan arrived last weekend, but it took him 5 days to 鈥渇ind it鈥 on the lot (only after I followed up twice asking for interior pics. Hadn鈥檛 seen the agate in good pics)

I do the daily drive by, thinking it is on the lot .. no it is not.
They sent me an e mail today - the car is stuck on a rail siding some where in the middle of Canada.. apparently it has been there for over a week now.. and still not moving..

I'm waiting on the delivery of my Macan Base as well. I was just ready to pick it up and they called and told me it was a no-go due to a Stop Sale. I've gotten no communication on it going forward. They gladly took my deposit though LOL. I'm trying my best to be patient...

So the stop sale extends to US models too?! Oh wow鈥

Also, you鈥檙e lucky they only took a deposit on yours. I traded in a car early to get guaranteed value on the trade (~$50k). They sold my trade over 3 months ago, and will just sit on that money until it applies as credit to our Macan.

I did speak with my sales guy and a regional Porsche rep, they'd indicated Mid-February to get the cars released. Fingers crossed.

You are more patient than I was.
The same thing happened to me few years ago with my BMW. It was sitting in port of Halifax for weeks due to bad weather. The dealership gave me a loaner for over a month while waiting for my car to arrive. I could understand that feeling.
I was at the dealership here in Portland looking at Macans and was told the same thing, that it should be fixed in 1-2 weeks.

Hi Guys,

My Dealer keeps saying my Macan in Vancouver Canada has arrived, but they cant deliver it to me. the original delivery was supposed to be Jan 28, and they don't even respond to me as for the ETA. any thoughts on this?

Cheers,

Hi Guys,

Looks like I'm in the same boat as you guys

Same dates as mine, which also arrived at the dealer Jan 28th. Fingers crossed that the ECU/emissions issue gets resolved soon.

The reason that your SA is probably not actively reaching out to you is that they probably don't have an actual timeline. It sounds like an ECU coding update is required, but hasn't been finalized yet. I'm sure they have internal expectations and deadlines to roll it out, but wouldn't want to put those dates out to the public to latch onto (in case there are further delays, etc)
