    Angry So I ordered a 2011 Boxster Spyder...

    I ordered a 2011 Boxster Spyder 6 weeks ago and the completion date was set for July 20 with an August delivery... But, it won't ship now until the end of August or early September... Evidently, the factory in Stuttgart closes for about a month for a big party/vacation and doesn't get back to full production til August 22nd. I sold my '06 Boxster about 6 weeks ago and I am having adrenaline withdrawls. I know it will be worth the wait, but DAMN!

    Yep, a well known fact that Europe goes on vacation for most of August. Plenty of time for you to surf through the past messages here until the car arrives! Congrats on the order!

    Sorry, but your wait is nothing compared to most of us on here. I waited over 7 months for mine. Others waiting for their caymans and boxsters have waited even longer for that! Once you get it the wait will be nothing other than a distant memory.

    Re: So I ordered a 2011 Boxster Spyder...

    Thanks for the support. I bought a 2000 Crown Vic(Former Police Interceptor) Police Car for $1500 bucks as a second vehicle. It makes me laugh bc no one will pass me and they slow down and get out of my way on the interstate. It]s very fast, but not quite the same, at all, on windy back roads. After drving the Spyder 6 weeks ago, its all I have been able to think about. I just hope the Stuttgart engineers aren't too hungover when they get back from the extened party lol. They could teach us something over here in the states- a month long beer drinking party! Where do I sign up?

    I guess the time of placing an oder does make a difference in terms of completion date; mine took about 4 months to be delivered, ahead of the orginal date by about 2 months.

    Yea, I hate it when I see one of those come up in my rear view mirror (especially when they still have the spotlight next to the drivers window) - then I realize it's some guy in a used cop car, and my blood pressure goes back down.

    Hang in there . . . if you start now, you might be able to read thru navanoD's Spyder thread before your car gets here.

    I'm lucky - I ordered in Jan 2011 and it arrived on April 2011 (I thought that was a long wait)

    I ordered my CR 11/2/2011 and will not deliver until mid March 2012 based on prod complete yesterday. 5 1/2 months. It was delayed more than two weeks to allow a run of 991s to meet the unexpected higher demands for the new model.

    I like to think that I waited for 38 yrs to get mine, either way it was worth the wait
