Hello!

Having been forced to sell my 997 turbo a few weeks ago I'm back in a Porsche with a new to me 991.1 C2S.

The noise from the PSE is intoxicating and the interior is a step up and then some from the 997. I do miss the turbo's desire to go at warp speed everywhere but the 991 is definitely a much nicer all round package!

Spec:
991 C2S
PDK
Sports Chrono
PTV
PASM
PDCC
PSE
Glass Roof
Satin wheels with painted crests
Heated and ventilated sports seats
Full black leather with red stitching
Alcantra head liner and pillars
Guards red seat belts
Embossed headrests
Cruise control
Park assist front & rear
Painted lower wing mirrors
Pro tech protection

I'll get the stone guards changed soon but here she is. I'm a happy chappy.

Hi,

Thanks, brings a smile to my face every time I get in.

Had to sell the turbo as due to where I live, Dubai, they have brought in a stupid rule meaning you can't insure a car over ten years old unless it's a considered a classic or worth over £100k.

Ain't driving round in a 200mph car third party. It does mean there's some good deals to be had if you can afford the risk.
