What is the approximate lead time for a boxster

I was looking around my local showroom and saw that all of the boxsters had equipment that I simply don't care about. Besides color preferences the only thing I really care about is HID's and the windstop and I don't want to pay for equipment that is meanless to me. Thus I am thinking about ordering one but wondered what the estimated lead time is for this vehicle??? I live in the Northeast so I am shooting for spring (May-June) for delivery. Thanks!

I don't think that will be one bit of trouble. If you want a Boxster by May/June you are looking at an April/May shipping date, with a car that was produced in March/April. You just need to find a dealer with an open March/April allocation.

You should e-mail 15-20 Porsche dealers in your area with your requirements (price and options) and work with the best deal.

I agree with you too, a lot of cars come in with stuff that you might not really want to purchase (pay for).

Good luck!

Oh one more thing, there are 12 Porsche dealers in OH and another 10 in PA. I know a great guy to work with in Dayton, OH. Send me a PM if you have any questions about them.

Our '06' was ordered...

9/2; built 10/14 and delivered to the dealer 11/14.

What color were you looking for?

It definately varies by dealer allocation: 9/5 order, build date 12/20, shipping due in January, hopefully.

Good choice-- so is ours.

Two local dealers have GR/Bk base cars in stock the last time I checked--Freddy Baker in Bedford and Cascade in Cuyahoga falls. BTW, Cascade has been sitting on that car since August. Both had stickers around 52K

I think Baker had a 05 AS/Bk base for around $40k--not many options.
