My OPC has just had virtually all their March build slots pushed back into April, I wouldn’t bank on any Boxster 25s arriving this summer. My 718 Spyder went into build on the 20th of January and latest build completion date is the 2nd of April.

Be strange if the boxster 25th edition arrives in the 26th year

It’s got the same engine as the GTS which seems to be causing some issues atm so I’m not sure if that will delay any deliveries.

I had a call with my OPC yesterday and while he said we've got one allocated we've still not got a build number so its a waiting game for us. I did ask about swapping back to a GTS and the estimate for that was sometime next year.

Same here. Complete silence beyond confirmation of the allocation. I note that COVID is having a bonanza in Germany too which can’t be helpful. As soon as I receive a confirmation, I’ll post on this thread. sleep

That would be good cheers. At least we know Porsche
Will endeavour to get this 25 edition to its customers this year.

Id have a look on the other threads, all cars on sale stop with a possible engine issue , could mean an engine replacement .
Not looking good?

Nice to have that option L. Len. I wouldn’t want a car that’s had major surgery on it, but to start again with a new order if I didn’t have a backup like you would be heartbreaking.

Meanwhile, I’ve ordered another Boxster 25 which should be delivered in under 1 week from order:

Have you not got a spec-lock date or anything yet? Timelines from locking in the spec to build is about 3-4 weeks say, then a further 3-4 weeks for delivery to dealer so let's say 8 weeks from the point you lock it in.

Could be late summer at this rate for you boys, I locked in my Spyder last week and I've been told to expect it in June.

No nothing. My opc just says he will call me when he gets the build slot confirmed.

Did you have to buy a 1:43 Minichamps Cayenne, Panamera and 911 before being able to put a deposit down?!

Very nice. There’s something satisfying having matching model car!
