Order a new Porsche and you'll be presented with what may seem like an endless list of options. But the one we're looking at today isn't an interior piece covered in leather or the color of the brake calipers. It's European delivery.

European delivery is available from a number of German and Swedish automakers, and allows customers to fly in and pick up their car right off the assembly line (or at the factory, anyway) instead of waiting for their new car to arrive at the dealership. Porsche has just tweaked its program, making it that much more enticing.

By opting for European delivery, buyers of a new Porsche can opt to pick up at one of two Porsche assembly plants: Zuffenhausen (where the 911, Boxster and Cayman are built) or Leipzig (home of the Panamera and Cayenne). Regardless of the model, buyers can choose either location, and each offers its own benefits. Both include a factory tour, but Zuffenhausen includes the recently renovated Porsche Museum, while Leipzig includes the opportunity to lap the test track or take a Cayenne off-road.

Porsche can also schedule a photo session on the grounds of either factory, and will arrange for temporary insurance and plates - and even winter tires if needed - allowing its customers to spend a couple weeks in Europe getting to know their new car. Once the honeymoon is over, Porsche will ship the car to the U.S.

While these programs don't offer the cost savings they once did, they still provide the unique opportunity of turning an acquisition into an experience that makes us wonder why anyone with the means and the time wouldn't take advantage. Follow the jump for the full press release.Continue reading Porsche revamps its European Delivery program
