I have the Bentley manual but since this is very reasonably priced, I ordered this one too. Thanks for the link.

I preordered one back in July 21, 2013 and am still waiting. When I ordered the manual, Amazon listed the book as an October delivery which turned into November, then December, now Feb 19th.

I placed the order for it in September, my friends has the one for the Boxster. I wonder if it's the same book with a few little changes for the 911 996.

I got a note from Amazon yesterday that they anticipate shipping it earlier than the last advertised date of Feb 19. I think it said some time in January.

I received the Jan 15th email also. But then again,I also received the Oct, Nov, Dec, and Feb emails.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I imagine a lot of it will be fairly similar due to fact that the dash forward and much of the motor is common common across both vehicles. However, all of the "upgrade your 986 using 996 parts!" sections obviously would need to be replaced, and if you don't own the 101 Projects for Your Boxster, it's a good reference and worth the ~$25 asking price.

Mine is pushed to March 20, 2014 - April 14, 2014. In addition to the pushed date notification, my email also required me to update the order by April 11, or the order will be canceled. I highlighted info in the email below.

Other than constant delays from amazon, does anyone know what the true status is of this book?

cscobra or Loren, can you tell if the book has any projects related to the interior/radio? I was on the waitlist forever, then my credit card on file expired so amazon bumped me off. I am trying to decide if its worth getting it, since I have so many other hobbies/projects going.

Any chance you can share the table of contents with us?

      I bought the Porsche factory manuals (all 17 volumes in 3-ring binders) in 2000 for about $600. I then spend about $100/year each for the next 6 years to get updates. My factory manuals ended up about costing $1200. Porsche stopped printing manuals a few years ago and the set was well over $1200 at that time.
      That does not really cover everything - you also need the OBD II manuals for DME 5.2.2. DME 7.2, and DME 7.8 depending on your model year. When I bought my OBD II manuals (again in 2000) they were about $200 each. So to cover all models it cost me about $600. Porsche also stopped printing these manuals a few years ago and at the time each was over $800.
      So all totaled I likely spent over $2000 for the factory service and OBD II manuals for the 996.
       
      For $138 (on Amazon) you get the Bentley Porsche 911 Carrera Service Manual (996) hardbound manual with photos that the factory manuals don't have - and from I can see so far 99% of the information that is in the factory manuals. BOTH service manuals and OBD II manuals.
      The manual layout is excellent logically each section from General Information and Maintenance to Wiring Diagrams and OBD II. Roughly 11 sections with great detail and photos the factory manuals never had. 1024 pages (and over 7.6 pounds) the manual is well composed and covers even some of the more tricky tasks. The photos are certainly worth a thousand words many times over.
      Clear, concise, detailed and from what I can see complete - this IS the service manual to have if you own or work on the 996 series cars. I highly recommend it.

      Here are a few photos I took of the book..
