let your engine and exhaust do the talking....
I wish you well. I was hoping to take my father with me to pick up my Spyder for a cruise to France to visit his brothers resting place in France. His brother was killed during WW2. One day I'll get to drive the Autobahn.Congratulations on your Spyder.
I am very closely involved with EU-USA travel and I can tell you that NOBODY has any clue when that will open. Not German Government, not Canada Government, not WHO, everybody is totally clueless. I have estimates ranging from mid-June all the way to January 2021 for opening the travel across Atlantic. I have 3 projects waiting to be finalized for more than a month now and I need Italian crews to finish them. Not a pretty situation, but that's what earns my paycheck. If computer could do it, I would be jobless
I filled out the paperwork many months ago however I didn't get approved by the dealer until quite recently. Its been a long ride which I'll appreciate when I finally get my car. It will be parked in the fall then back on the road next spring.By these dates I would expect that you ordered it some time ago? You do know that there are currently no ED's happening during the early-mid summer time frames... Curious where you are at, PM if you prefer.
So when is your Spyder supposed to be complete?I was informed today that I will be able to complete a Euro delivery for my 2020 Spyder in September. With the current Covid19 situation I think I will pass and do a regular delivery. I can make a firm decision two weeks before the car is ready.
I don't have the exact date yet however it looks like September/October. It looks like I will be driving my GT4 through the summer this year.
I have an allocation for a 718 Spyder that was scheduled to enter production April 24; obviously that did not occur. All I have heard from the dealer is that it will begin some time in June. Has anyone heard anything more definite as to when Porsches will be manufactured or whether the Spyders will be 2020 or 2021 models?I don't have the exact date yet however it looks like September/October.

Your SA can provide a build tracking sheet to show the expected dates for production, if it is building in June it definitely a 2020 model. 2021 models will not building until September and won't likely deliver until early December.I have an allocation for a 718 Spyder that was scheduled to enter production April 24; obviously that did not occur.

Nope, there are a number of GT4/Spyder's out there for sale at dealerships, allocations are available as well for 2021 models as well.
The only way that I can think of to respond to your post is a single word SNOB!Think I’m going to spec a rear badge delete for my 2020 Spyder.
Porsche should have rebadged the Spyder & GT4 with entirely new model numbers.
I expect I’m about to ruffle some feathers, but these cars with 4.0L NA engine + GT3 derived brakes and suspension are about as comparable to the current gen 718’s as apples are to orangutans.
Not to mention the now nonsensical tie in to the vintage 4 cylinder heritage of the badge.
Would rather not have to explain at every gas station stop that “no, I didn’t spend $120k on a 4 cylinder car” (especially when most anything else at this price range is a V8 with at least 200 more HP)
