All the comfort entry does is move the seat back a bit. It doesn't alter any of the seat settings.

Is there a way of keeping the drivers seat in the same position when I switch the car off? I just want to get in and drive without having to press the memory 1 button on the door and have the seat take 30 seconds to go back to where it was.
Ignition on.
Press the 'set' button the door.
Press the drivers key button within 10 seconds.

The settings of that key against the seat will be remembered each time its used. If that doesn't seem to work, use the same process but use the set button, then memory button 1 or 2. To retrieve if needed just press and hold 1 or 2. Or with ignition off and drivers door open, briefly press 1 or 2 and the settings will be applied.

Also, get the 'good to know' Porsche app. HTH.

Right...

So today I get an email from Porsche.



The first thing I do is try and contact the sales executive I've been dealing with at the OPC. Long story short, couldn't get hold of him and left wondering what does this mean?

I haven't finalised my build so a bit confused by what this means? I thought once you got a build slot you finalised your build at the OPC?

Total newbie so any guidance greatly appreciated!

Cheers T1b.

It just means that Porsche has received the vehicle order demand from the OPC. You don't have an allocation yet but Porsche have put you in the queue for one, a pending allocation if you like.

You'll probably get your Porsche Experience Centre invite next. Hopefully an allocation is not too far off but it looks like quite a few have come through in the last couple of weeks so I suspect you'll need to wait a few months.

Still, more configurator tinkering time!

Can people name the dealer they have placed orders with. Trying to work out lead times/allocations form individual dealers.

I’m looking to order in July, but don’t want the car until 2024 (for a variety of reasons - primarily saving the pennies).

Thanks in advance

Great news!

Build slots seem to be coming through in fairly large numbers at the moment. I notice that the slots stretch quite a bit into the future though, I only had about three weeks to lock my spec when my allocation came through with a build start within eight weeks.

I think caymans are coming through. Boxster still seem quite scarce. My slot is for October build for a boxster and will only be the second they have had through this year

I would go to your local dealer. Put a deposit down and say you want a car for 2024. Then your name is on the list. If the slot comes sooner you can always let someone else in front of you. What you don’t want is wait to get an order in the suddenly you can’t get one. I think the new boxster comes out in 2024

Seems a good way to go, I put my deposit down in Nov 21 so a possible delivery Nov 22 is a result

Whilst options do you think will be desirable when I come to sell, hopefully not for a long time (10-15 years)? I know on some cars as they age certain options are a must, others are avoided (sunroof etc).

I've gone for pretty high spec, but kept off all the drivers aids (lane departure etc) as I think this will be a negative option in future as technology progresses.

Suspect manual will be the wise choice, but preferred PDK so went with that!

Anything else?

You are going to keep it for 10/15 years buy what options you want to enjoy the car . Forget about resale value!

I know and I will smile Just curious if there is anything that people think will help or hinder desirability as it ages, not necessarily just to residual value.

If I was buying to keep long term I would buy to please myself wouldn't like to think I was driving round in a manual to possibly please someone in 15 years time! long term no one can really predict but a manual box I imagine will be rare in the future, If it was short term personally I would say stay away from manual, speaking with one of the group buyers for Porsche he said the feedback he is getting is people buying used favour PDK, he also said the cars that are not shifting quickly are in the drab colours that most people seem to be going for new thinking its a safe bet to flip, greys silvers ect where the brighter colours and pdk cars are moving much quicker.

If you're looking for a Boxster then 2024 may not be an option, I placed a Boxster deposit in January for a prospective 2024 car, was contacted in March to say the Boxster order cannot be guaranteed.
I swapped to a cancelled Cayman may 2022 build slot.
