Looking at this site, the next boat for Aus ('Toyofuji') has a ETD of 18 Mar. So hopefully a few more people will get some updates next week, particularly those that got told a Feb build date. I couldn't see anything else listed departing Yokohama after that.
I was told my car was/has been built in January - and my Queensland dealer still can't give me any delivery information.

When did we last see a photo of Zs on a car transporter or at the docks?
Tomorrow maybe 😝
Where is a good spot to get a view of the docks? I've not been down there before.

Boat docks at 11PM tonight

any of you guys switching to the Supra manual ?
Yeah I did a few weeks back. I'd lost confidence on getting a Z any time soon.

I hate to say it but Toyota/BMW/Magna Steyr have a much more sorted production line. I've had a couple of updates from the dealer since then and timelines have continually shortened, now looking at an April manufacture for July delivery.

It's been a breath of fresh air after the Z saga 😬

You may just get your wish.
I on the other hand get increasingly antsy
You must of done it good and proper for 12 weeks…usually it’s only an 8 week turn around.
When I broke my ankle ….it was only 6 weeks.
But mine wasn’t dramatic.it’s embarrassing to admit I was simply walking, stood on a gum it that twisted my ankle so badly it snapped 😳
I couldn’t drive a manual either, coz I couldn’t use the clutch
Small bone shattered into a few pieces. Cast / splint for 6 weeks plus another six weeks avoiding heavy contact with palm / wrist. Could be ok after the 6 but will need to take it easy. Certainly not allowed back on the bike for 12 weeks.

This is what pisses me off….I bet he wasn’t waiting 2 years for his car
You’re not gonna be happy with me then. Got a call yesterday. I expect somewhere between cars not being produced in order of orders and a cancellation I’ve been told I have a car arriving within weeks. The call was to confirm I wanted the car - needed an answer immediately or it would go to next matching order. Serves me right for saying I didn’t want a car for 12 weeks just two days ago!

How in the heck?
What colour did you order?
And I, not upset with you…just this crappy roll out
What dealership were you with again?

Maybe they heard the next shipment is leaving soon? I’m gonna hope my car is on there with yours

Osborne park - same as you. Gun metallic manual.

As I said - I expect I've just got lucky with a cancellation of someone ahead of me with the same spec (or Nissan is just sending cars as produced which aren't linked to the order of orders). I can see why it would make sense to produce a run of same colour.

Note that I wasn't given a VIN or any other details but it must be on water or even here if they are planning delivery before end of month

I just spoke to dealer. Car in the warehouse in Welshpool apparently, but the Z's will be last to leave from that shipment hence end of month delivery. I've gotta be the only buyer in Australia not in a rush so they can take as long as they like.
