Congrats Devo. I really thought you were going to pick up a slightly used 911 instead.

I just came back from a local dealer. He said similar things about US builds and all that, but when I started to push him on that a bit, he mumbled for a while and admitted that these are just estimates, and nobody knows anything too specific about US build dates. Appearently, what happens is that dealers, upon recieving their initial allocations, go into the system and enter their orders. The system keeps track of submission time and maintains that order (I guess, to a certain extent, per dealer). Then, at some point, BMW will start assigning production slots/numbers to the orders that are in the system, starting from the top obviously. But nobody knows for sure when that will be. Regardless, Jan build is probably a realistic expectation.
