Atlanta More than 400 new Porsches are not in the hands of their new owners but rather sitting idle waiting for a missing part, and the number continues to grow. The part in question is the new Porsche Communications Management (PCM) 4.0 that utilizes Apple CarPlay. Porsche's supplier has been unable to deliver units to Porsche citing production problems in Japan as the source of the delay. Meanwhile Porsche continues to produce cars and ship them where they will sit at port waiting for a retrofit of the PCM system when parts become available. At the present time no one knows how long that might be and would-be owners are not given an option to take delivery without PCM and receive the missing unit at a later date. One owner, who wished to remain anonymous, stated that this has been going on for over a month and that he is about to cancel his order if his car is not delivered soon.
Have you been waiting on a new Porsche with PCM? If so, we'd like to hear your story.
