delivery time

My dealer (in Spain) says the car will take about one month to be delivered after ordering it?
Isn't that too little time?
I had the impression it would take about 3-4 months to be ready...
How long did yours take?

That seems really fast. But production volume vs. demand is in good shape, so maybe it is possible.

Mine required a boat trip and was ordered at the height of the "boom" in 2001... so it may not be a good comparison. Mine took ~4 months, but there were delays due to a port fire in Europe.

Do you know whether your car was already a dealer order, which could be customized in queue, or was it an "all new" order? The dealership can "call in" changes to a pre-existing order, within some restrictions, and that car can be built and shipped much quicker than a new order.

This, combined with in-Europe shipment meaning just truck or rail, could make your car come much faster than what many of us experienced?
