Got old today the issue is a fire at the seat chip manufacturer in Japan

They expect chips to be back in circulation by Aug and Sept
It’s certainly part of the problem :-

It seems that nigh on every delay I hear is GTS orders that picked the memory seats as an option.

I have been told my Turbo is still due for build completion end of this month..... not sure if that’s because any of the chips they do have they will prioritise for a car where it is standard (ie not a single Turbo could be built otherwise?).

Have heard very little on Turbos being delayed.

My OPC told me that all of their Macan’s build slots (8 in total) were now delayed until July and that it wasn’t just due to the memory seats, but Tyre pressure monitoring.

Mine is same as yours on date. Crazy actual date into body shop was 27/04/21. So probably just an empty shell. And will be pretty much 9 months since I ordered as was 20/08/21. If it does end up being then will just wait for 1st September.

Some odd delays people are seeing above, my gts went into production about 2 weeks ago is now sat at Emden and dealer is saying about 3 weeks till I can collect it.

It must be specific to some options, I didn’t tick memory or 18 way seats or acc so maybe just lucky
