How long to build?

Last year (October 19 to be exact), we had put in an order for a Porsche Cayenne Hybrid. We were looking for a very specific combination, and being close to the end of the year we also wanted to wait for a 2020 instead of taking delivery of a 2019 at the end of the year.

To make a long story short, the dealer finally says:
Your Porsche has reached V200 Status in its production. Which means it is 100 points away from being shipped. The estimated time to arrive as of today is July.
Is this a real schedule or is he deliberately sandbagging? How long does it take to build these vehicles anyway? His email also implied that we have a very limited runway to make any changes, so either the build has started or it's imminent.

We ordered a Cayenne Hybrid as a custom build in 2012. However, the dealer showed us where they changed a car they had on order for their own inventory to our order. We were never told anything like V200 Status. We were shown "Expected Build Week". From the expected build week to actual delivery it was about 10 or 11 weeks.

Not sure why the dealer would have any reason to sandbag you. Keeping you properly informed manages your expectations, and managing your expectations and keeping you happy is important to them. According to a post on rennlist, when the status changes from V200 to V250 you can no longer make changes. That seems to match with what your dealer said about their being limited time to make any changes.
