Macan S Launch date Uk and delivery times

Post by Dmk » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:00 pm

Wondering does anyone know when Macan S will be available for customers to collect.
Had thought initially Feb 2019 but understand now there is an official Uk launch with dealers.
Any ideas please.

I have heard nothing from my own OPC reorder placed mid-December but there is a thread in the forum where someone reports their OPC has told them no UK S deliverys before April 1st. I leave it to you to decide how seriously you take the comment!

If you read that thread by GW2015 which I posted the link too prior to your post they say that they have a February build.

Yes I am aware many have been told February build and March delivery to the dealer I was just reporting a later comment by another forum member talking to his OPC. I believe a WLTP issue was involved in the reported delay

Macan S Launch date Uk and delivery times

I understand that first batch of Macan S will land in Feb/Mar. I was told by the OPC that there is no shipment planned for entire April. Shipments are planned to resume in May.

All this uncertainty around Brexit is not helping anyone. Macan is very popular all over the world and while our politicians are debating what to do, our Macan slots get allocated and shipped to other RHD markets.

It’s interesting that there is nothing firm about time.
I get feeling everybody being told something different.
Does anybody know if s model needs a launch before sale in uk.?

Welcome to our friendly forum, Dmk! :)

There’s no rule that says you can’t buy or take delivery of a new Porsche model before it’s been launched in local OPCs.

The various timescales will differ from dealership to dealership dependant on size of dealership target, allocated build slots and number of customer orders already placed at each dealership.
Just because build starts, say, in Feb doesn’t necessarily mean that your dealership will have free build slots.

Contrary to Pauls comments I would think that it is very different.

With BREXIT looming Porsche would probably be concentrating on getting UK orders fulfilled and shipped to arrive in the UK pre the big day.
