  1. My Boxster took from 12 Dec 08, when the order was submitted by the dealer, to 13 Mar 09, when it arrived in the port--which is pretty much what the dealer predicted. Your time would depend mostly on when in the dealer's allocation cycle when you order. I did have a hang up at the port so it took an additional month to get to Los Angeles; I have never been clear why. Like other commenters, I also think that the dealer would want to get it for you ASAP. I saw all 2008s last month when I was last at the dealer's--no additional 2009s! I was very happy with the dealership and they kept me
  2. I am having problems with the PDK transmission. I have the a 2009 Boxster Basic (2.9L) with PDK. It has 2000+ miles. This is my first Boxster or Porsche. I did briefly drive a Boxster S and a Cayman S, both with the PDK, and they did not have this problem. Also I have searched online and not found any similar difficulties with the PDK. However, I have not seen any discussion of a 2.9L with PDK. The transmission is often very balky and jerky in 1st & reverse. Occasionally I even get a 'clunk'. When I talked to service on the phone they asked me if I were driving with my left foo
  3. I am sorry to take so long to reply. I have taken delivery. I ordered the car on 12 Dec 08 and it arrived in San Diego as expected on 13 Mar 09. I ordered it just as the dealer sent in their quarterly allocation so this was probably the shortest time possible. I am guessing it was on the first shipment to the USA. The dealer kept me posted on progress so I knew the day it was assembled, the day it shipped, etc. However there was about a one-month delay at the port while they inspected it. They stone-walled the dealer and never gave me a clear explanation. I 'shook it loose from the po
  4. ...Nice to read about your experience with the PDK. Some of the differences--in case you have not been following the press carefully: The 987-2 has a newish motor more similar to the 911. It is slightly larger with slightly more horsepower but I don't know more than that. I have read the exhaust has been retuned slightly. The center console is the same as the 911 and includes a display--there is a larger touch display with the new optional PCM-3 nav system (also iPod control, bluetooth and voice-control options). The center console is the only interior change. The S has direct inj
