Sorry, not at this time.

Apple switched things again with their SSD's and now are using a PCIe interface Vs their proprietary interface. But, the new PCIe M2 Standard they are using has not been ratified yet. So many are waiting to see what happens in the standards group. If it does get ratified as is then you should have many choices. If on the other hand the standard is altered so Apples' current design is not compatible it will take awhile for other manufactures to step forward.

Bottom line here is your just to early for the ball game here. Be patient, good things come that wait ;-}

What do mean? Both OWC & Transcent offers SSD upgrades today for many of the air & retina models.

Chris my answer was generic for evalerde as it was not clear what model he was speaking about, you are correct the newer MacBook Pro's and airs still don't have a 3rd party option yet.

I have MacBookPro11,3 (15-inch, Retina, Late 2013) --- WITH PCIe

I have no luck finding a SSD upgrade. Nor a way to keep the one I have in a portable enclosure

I called OWC today and they told me there is no solution. Apple’s fault , etc etc

Any clue on this?

Sadly, there is still no 3rd party upgrade for your model still. There are some Apple SSD parts (used) out in the wild in case you have a smaller SSD and just want to up it to the larger Apple offered size.
