Porsche Improves European Delivery Program
Porsche announced major changes and improvements to its European Delivery program. The program is now available to customers in the U.S. without any additional fees. Previously, Porsche charged a fee ranging from $1,150 to $4,075, based on the vehicle.
Under the new program, Porsche is providing customers with discounted airfare and hotels in addition to providing one night’s stay at a Steigenberger luxury hotel of the customer’s choosing.
Amenities including taxi vouchers from the airport to the Zuffenhausen factory (a Cayenne shuttle will transport customers to the Leipzig factory), a factory tour, lunch at the delivery center, admission to the Porsche Museum, a full tank of fuel, and for those customers taking delivery in Leipzig (pictured), a choice of driving several Porsche models on the test track or driving a Cayenne SUV on the off-road track.
Porsche offers European Delivery at its headquarters in Zuffenhausen (Stuttgart), where the 911, Boxster, and Cayman are produced, or in Leipzig, where the Cayenne and Panamera Sport Sedans are manufactured. Customers can choose either location for delivery, regardless of the model ordered.
The program includes two weeks of insurance and customers may purchase additional insurance for trips lasting as much as six months.
Porsche had been the only European automaker to charge a fee for factory delivery, although it remains the only car company that doesn’t offer customers a European Delivery discount. In addition to Porsche, European Delivery is offered by Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo.
