Who's up for a road trip to Baltimore to check out the port?
If it’s any help, my vehicle when being processed at the port showed a “build date” for my dealer and their portal showed this without an estimated delivery date (though they quoted about three weeks from that point).

Once my car was processed (I got the vortex generator and stuff), the dealer’s portal updated to show a date for when it was released to the rail company (West Coast through Fremont uses BNSF), and an estimated delivery date (about 2 weeks after - for me 11/17).

So I bet the cars are waiting to be processed, if you harass your dealer enough they might be able to see when / if they are processed and waiting on trains / trucks depending on your distance from whatever port they have. Guessing East Coast has a pretty robust railway system so if you aren’t super close to the port they’ll try and save a buck (ask your dealer they should know if they’re usually sent by rail or truck).

Hope that helps from my perspective.

I’m sure mine is being put onto rail and brought to a lot near I95 where I live. There it will sit until a carrier picks it up at their leisure and brings it to my dealer. It’s probably sitting there right now…😡

We need a fleet of black hondas to scour the highways for car carriers.

I'm supposed to have a November delivery date yet I have no VIN while the other BRZ coming with mine does have one (but no window sticker).

I'm hoping this is the case, but with no VIN I'm still in the dark. My dealer has been keeping in touch with me but there just aren't really any updates for them to give.

Ok I found a localish dealer that had a allocation for a limited manual in white and put a deposit down. Also ordered a ton of parts from Japan that are stuck in customs. Can’t wait for either of them to get here!

Deposit down for 2022 BRZ Sport-tech (aka Limited trim for those of you in the US) with Barrie Subaru.

Accessories added:
- Car cover + car cover bag (yes, I'm a sucker)
- Homelink + autodim mirror

They offered it for pickup in 3-4 weeks which puts me right into snow/salt up here in Canadia. I asked if I could delay till April and they happily said they would accommodate given they know this is a summer toy for me.

Excellent experience with Grant W. at Barrie Subaru. Would recommend.

I just checked with SOA, they are still showing the 17th as the release date and a delivery in November. She didn't know if it's already at the port or not.

I just called SoA today and I still have no date or VIN yet I’m still set for a November delivery. I checked on the status of another car also coming in this months allocation to the same dealer since it has a VIN and it has a delivery date of 11/28. So I’m hoping that mine miraculously shows up with that one haha

Just want to verify this for my own peace of mind. I am seeing and sympathizing with all the folks getting delays in the last few days. It seems like the common thing that is happening is that the dealer was confused about delivery date vs. port date. Had any of you guys got your window sticker before the delay?

I know delays are possible at any stage of shipping, but I am obviously hoping that my 11/16 date doesn't change. I am scheduled to start working from the office again on 11/17. I've made promises.

I already got my window sticker, so at this point the only possible delay would be trucking the car to the dealer, not confusion about pickup/port dates. Is that correct?

If you have your window sticker it’s done at the port and barring some real screw up from whoever the rail company is, yours should be on a train (if you’re not directly nearby and would be opted for truck). I guess there could always be what you noted here with some issue once the cars get to a nearby railway and there’s no trucking available to get them to the dealer.

I think we all need to keep in mind that the dealer wants these cars as much as a we do - and not necessarily the BRZs as the odds are there are many other higher volume sellers being shipped alongside ours (Forester / Ascent). So they want them ASAP and will probably try their best to get things right and if they do that for those other cars, ours will benefit as well.
