But, depending on what, if any port accessories you chose, that can hold things up (especially hitches/paint protection). Also, depends where on the ship yours was. I know the port that services our store dealt with 280k cars coming through last year - at some point, there are bound to be some delays here and there, it would be impossible for there not to be
I mean they're all Edition One's, specced the same. All are marked sold to customers, so it doesn't make a ton of sense to me how some can go out days ahead of others not even moving, especially when the miles to deliver are so small.

I can assure you, they are not all sold to customers

Your dealer can easily reach out to Audi's Distribution team as well to see what, if any, hold up there might be.

Again, the sheer volume of cars that arrive to ports can be staggering, of all different types. A few days here and there is not at all abnormal

Amateur web portal updated the status of my car to En Route today. I took delivery yesterday. Audi is sucking at this part of the process.

Yeah, if they can't keep it updated they should just stop using it.

The whole process is ridiculous. I was told to expect the car October / November and to order ASAP to secure one which I did in February. Low and behold the car goes into manufacturing in March and was told by my dealer it would be a late May / June arrival yet others who have ordered well before me are still stuck in production or haven’t even entered it.

The portal is useless, mines been stuck on “leaving factory” since 19th April so I’ve had to email the dealer yet again to try and get vessel tracking info

Congrats!
This debunks my theory that the Galaxy Blue color was causing production delays. So there must be something else in my configuration that's delaying production. I ordered 9/17 but didn't go into production until 4/13 and currently stuck there.

Default Order Status Report from dealer

See attached PDF file, this is the order status info that your dealer has access to through their online system. I bracketed info on the second page relating to production and delivery dates.
I'm sure the e-tron Customer Service phone line has access to the same information and for whatever reason has been giving everyone a standard "15-17 weeks" delivery timeframe.

Thanks for that. The reservation website showed mine leaving the factory on 4/19 and I was notifies by email this week (5/2) that car was en route. I called Audi yesterday to verify and CR rep said that was correct and that I was looking at an 8 to 10 week period en route.
