Tracking the Delivery of your baby

If your car has to cross an ocean to get to you, I believe this is a way to track delivery (taken from the pieces I could put together). It should work for US and Canada. Not sure what the Australian lines are.

Once your spec is firm, your dealer should give you a car build schedule. Find the date of the German exit from their port, probably Emden. You probably want to get an updated schedule as the date gets closer. Schedules can change and what you have in January could be different in a couple of months.

Go here. On the right side select your trade route (e.g., USA).

For USA and, I think, Canada, select VW Logistics

A PDF schedule will come up. Ask your dealer for the boat name. Look at the schedule column for the date that boat leaves the dock. For example, today it looks like the Gracious Ace leaves Emden 1/30 and docks in Halifax Canada and then RI. US west coast cars might go to Houston.

Go here. While the ship is near land, you can track it. Not sure how to track it in the open ocean because it uses a different system. There are also apps for smart phones that can track it.

Once the ship is back near land, you can track it until it docks.

Once PDI is done, you can start looking at all the car haulers on the road near you and hope you car is on one of them :)

I hope this helps somebody interested in tracking delivery of their car (which is different from tracking their car ;).

You can also just google this and find lots of entries where people tracked their delivery.

edit: 21 Nov 2022. my.porsche.com might be able to allow some form of tracking

Website is back up and running for me. Mine is still sitting at the port. No changes.
Same. I wonder how they are determining which cars go on the ship and which stay.

Sunshine Ace is actually expected to leave Emden tomorrow, but since Siem Aristotle stayed a day longer than expected, so maybe we can see our car moving on 5/28. Finger crossed!
This is how much Sunshine ace was messing around before it landed Emden LOL. I am sitting at Ecopark to get estimates for my mercedes that my Porsche dealership will match the price for trading in, I see they are microscoping my car to find flaw LOL.

Hey team! FWIW: my Macan S was supposed to be delivered in May, slipped to the June 22 date, then July 22 date, with arrival in Jacksonville port pushed into August. Earlier this week, I had my SA double check the push to August that everyone here also experienced. Somehow, the My Porsche tracker updated today, stating my Macan is actually already on a boat. It reportedly appears to be the SEIM ARISTOTLE as it left port on May 22. So my first pushed date is now back in play. I’m having it sent to the PECATL. Estimated arrival there has been pulled forward from the late Aug date to July 5.

I wish everyone the same luck.

First post! I ordered:

MY23, ‘S’
Copper Ruby
21” Jet Black Metallic w/locks
Beige interior
Brushed aluminum interior, matching illuminated door sills
PP+
Sport Chrono
Surround camera
Black rails + Black trim
Satin Porsche, gloss black model designation
Crest headrests, front only

My port is Jacksonville too; just re-checked the My Porsche tracker and my car is still in Emden :( Happy to hear your good news though ... I was considering doing PECATL too but then backed out last minute, post some pics and let us know how you like it:) You have a great build.

I hoped you and I would be in the same ship but I see Siem Aristotle was last ship leaving to Jacksonville in May, next one will be on early June according to the schedule, yours might stay longer. Should be got on Aristotle, dang!

Yes, received the card holder too. It was a nice gift.
lol does everyone get this card holder gift cause I didn't :( Now I am sad, I want one lol.

At least I got my lowering links, spacers and led side markers!

hoping for 4/5 today if the car gets released
Should contact PCNA and get one. I don’t think they selectively offer that gift.

Thanks! I hope you’re on the next one!

I’m excited about the PECATL delivery! But I’ve heard it can add more time … we’ll see! At least it’s on the boat.
