About a month ago I tried to place an order for a Taycan, right before Porsche closed the Taycan factory due to the war. My dealer had told me Porsche had stopped taking orders because the factory was shut down and now they're taking orders again. Now that I'm ready to place my order again they're trying to force the dealership warranty add-ons with come to about $9,000 in extra costs.

This dealer is in Atlanta. Are there any dealers that will take my order without forcing me to buy their extended warranties? Doesn't have to be in Georgia prefer to stay with the east coast and south.

Thanks!

Thanks @kort. I understand your point but my question isnt about whether or not they can do that. I apologize that that wasnt clear. My question is more about finding a dealer that doesn't force you to buy the add-on warranty. If you know of any, that would be super helpful.

Thanks for responding.

I took delivery of my RWD last August. I had had deposits down at 2 South Florida dealerships for 3 years. Wasn't too pleased with either of them and eventually bought from a third, Porsche of West Broward. Have had a good experience with them and would also recommend my salesman, Ariel Sommerfleck. If you give Ariel a call, tell him Jerome sent you!

in the current marketplace where supply is extremely constrained you'd find it difficult to find a quick replacement. currently there are no allocations available for almost a year and the dealers know this so even if they do have an unsold car they will mark it up.

I did some calling around and found another dealership close to me where I can put in my custom order and they won't force me to buy the dealer warranty. Problem solved. Thanks to everyone who replied. Definitely appreciated the insights.

So the latest on my order is that I put down $2500 last month for a 2022 model build that was to begin in June. Today (1 month after I placed my order) I received a message that my order was received from Porsche. Excited, I logged in only to see that instead of 2022 my order was changed to a 2023 and the purchase price went up over $4k. And it would be 5 months before my order would be delivered. Now I'm not concerned about the delivery time, but I don't see how they can change the model and charge me more after we had a signed agreement. Anyone else have a problem like this? The order number showing kn My Porsche is different than my original order number but the vehicle image on the My Porshe website looks exactly like my order. I haven't gotten an explanation from the dealer yet but Im hoping it was an error. Any thoughts?

Are there any updates? It doesn’t look right, and I hope you managed to sort things out with Porsche. It’s not nice to have issues like this when paying for a car. I would be concerned about this misalignment a lot.
I ended up resolving the matter with Porsche and all is good. My Taycan just completed production last week. Im hoping to have it n my garage by mid to late November. We'll see.
