    Got car color corrected, then PPF entire car now being ceramic coated and having windshield wrapped. I live in NY, me and my car buds (14 of us)are driving down to Tenn. to the Tail Of The Dragon and the famous mountain roads down there. Leaving on the 23rd. I have about 350 miles on her so far. This will be a great break in.

    A full year wait.. I don't feel nearly as bad now.... And I thought I got screwed by the viral outbreak. Apparently, according to my dealership, I have been assigned a VIN but I have no access to the information other than through my dealership. I ave read that the application lets you see the status but I have no information on mine. I feel that the estimated date of completion is way too short and optimistic, only approximately 6 weeks and then whatever takes place between shipping and getting to the "great" Republic of California.

    Didn't know that was a thing, especially in Scottsdale? Food products??? it is seriously stupid what people do because of envy. I guess it is good to have "just a Porsche"(Since nobody seems to tell the difference between a GT2 and a Carrera... it is a good thing. Seems to be more with the Italian brands, I assume...

    So I am just finding out that the first picture is not when you get the VIN. And the car takes about a week to a week and a half from the first picture to be completed? What is your timeline?

    Only the dealer can give you status updates, it’s not on the app. I believe the VIN is assigned somewhat early in the process, around when the car goes status 20 (Chassis assembly) maybe sooner...

    Timing of pics has never been consistent. My spider order was Oct 2019. Got my VIN around 7/20. Car expected to be delivered end of October.

    I'm really not sure what is going on, got my vin at the very end of July but my dealer says he is looking on modis but no change just red 10, my ferrari still says waiting list, I have been told delivery 23rd of October. The lack of information is so frustrating it makes me think best to just buy cars already built on the secondary market and be done with this terrible service and lack of information

    Yes you got it, dealer suggested it when I told him I didn’t want to do Rosso stitching on Cuoio. I think it turned out well.

    Back when I was ordering my red 488 spider, the dealer suggested dk. Grey or black stitching on my tan seats. His opinion was the red stitching looked pink on tan seats. He was correct as far as I was concerned. I got dark and was happy with the results. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    Thanks. I’m guessing about a week or so, doing the entire car in PPF, ceramic coating, windshield etc... Matte Grigio Corsa Pista wheels with MPSC 2’s as well....

    I see... So I must have a chassis already assembled since I have a VIN. Just don't what the VIN is and don't know how advanced (or not so advanced) it is.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    I purposely kept the options basic so the car could go through production quickly but alas that has not helped me, by the time it comes it will be winter and I have another car coming so I'll have to get rid of it immediately and wait for the spider making the whole process even more frustrating

    I was considering ordering a new F8 from DL Swindon as i was so impressed with it after my test drive..I was requested to pay a £25K deposit and expected delivery in 12-14mths..However after reading about your experience i think i'm going to wait for one on the used market in less than 12 months and avoid all the stress..I'm also driving the new Roma at the Salon Prive on 25th Sept which i can get in about 8-10mths..
    I'm much more likely to order a Roma for that very reason..I specified an F8 in identical spec to my 488 and it came to over £260K which seems steep when you can get the same spec Roma for £50K less..
    Ferrari is on a roll right now and making Porsche seem so very dull and boring in comparison.

    Better just to pick up used, I'm not that impressed with my dealer in this tbh, I ordered 2 cars from them and they put me right at the back of the queue on the first one, so far back I have no gap between that one and the second one coming making the first car redundant. I know of another guy that ordered in Jan and he already has his car, they must have put him in a cancellation slot but, they didn't put me in that slot. I have had it with them
