Factory Collection a no go...

Finally decided to take the plunge and ordered a new 992 C4S Coupe last week, but have been told I can't order a Factory Delivery.  Does anyone know why?  When the dealership asked they were told "no-one knows".  All sounds a bit odd to me, does anyone have a good contact in Porsche to get to the bottom of it?
 
Many thanks,
 
Tom

    Factory collect is suspended during winter months (October to March from memory) due to the German authority's requirement to run only winter tyres. It is also suspended occasionally when production lines are disrupted either for refurbishment, new models or special projects.
    Richard Watling looks after Club factory visits and may be able to shed more light on the subject. visitporsche@gmail.com

    I know when we ordered our 992 we put down for a factory collection but as we got nearer the time they cancelled it on us due to Brexit. Everyone blames Brexit!!

    Thank you very much for your replies. I’ll drop Richard a line and see if he is able to help. 


    It’s for a March(ish) delivery, so I had hoped I picked a date outside the winter tyre rules. I lived in Gutersloh a few years ago, I remember swapping my tyres during the winter months.  Something we should do in the UK?  But in fairness, winter in Germany can be a very very cold place to be, far colder than the UK.
