Does anyone know how long the "build" process takes (start to finish) over at Hethel. I'm due to be built by the 15th and am trying to visualize where my car might be in its build cycle..
I'm assuming that if they tell you your build date is the 15th that it implies date of completion. Porsche calls it "estimated completion of manufacture".
+$945 Laser Blue/blk Sport pak & cool with it!!:clap: :p

I heard it's supposed to be roughly two weeks.

Your bucket is probably being extruded :D

Sure someone can give you the real number. Thought it was around 10 working days. Then again if it get's hung up in Q&A and needs a bit of rework. There is also the question of will it make the boat shipping out that week or have to wait for the next one. Funny how I'm starting to think about some of that stuff too. :D

Yeah, but that's before you factor in the exhange rate.

It really takes 3.58151 weeks to build. I feel sorry for those further down the list, it might take as much as 4.8932 weeks for their cars to be built.

Yep, I had a nice tour in July, about 4 days from fiber glass parts in the back door to car out the front door.
