Mrs bought “her car” some pyjamas for Christmas Thumb

Cover fits perfect of course, but noticeably thinner than the 997 one I got with my C2S in 2004 Dont know

Very nice

But blame the martini decal for the thinner material...

On garden leave so decided to ignore the house diy list and cross the bridge for a few days seeing friends and hooning around South Wales.

I’ve really gelled with the C4S and it’s capabilities on every type of road from mud strewn B roads in the wye valley to real fast exposed A roads across Brecon etc. Did Monmouth/Brecon and Abergavenny this am and straight on a motorways back to Portsmouth with a few detours this afternoon. These things are seriously capable. Never put a foot wrong unless I pressed the loud peddle too quickly on the sloppy bits. Easy catchable though.

Parked up proper dirty now. Will give it a clean before swapping it for the Turbo from storage for warranty extension check and then run next week. NW then NE via the snake pass I think Question any recommendations Liverpool to Newcastle? Will take a full day to do it justice.

Snake pass is good but do it off peak and watch out for speed cameras. If heading to the NE and you have some time, head across the A64 to Whitby, the road across the moors is great.

Great to hear that my next 911 is so much fun. Thumb

Am I right in thinking that 95% of the time a 991C4S would be all the 911 anyone would ever need and that a Turbo just gives that other 5%. Question

Yes, to Malton and North East across the moor, just had to Google the road number... A169.

Need yes...Want no...I know as soon I get into the T, warm it up and then press the go peddle I'll be giggling like a kid again. In the uk that 5% reduces, mix in the European miles and it grows.

Driving them back to back the 4 does seem slower as you'd expect, but there was no point on those mixed Welsh roads that I thought "going noticeably quicker here would be necessary" (or a good idea). Both are 4 wheel drive, but the turbo makes you conform to that old adage slow in fast out as its ability to accelerate is bonkers.

First outing for little #rivblu991 @ todays southern breakfast meet at TheDepartureLoungeCafe.

1/18 Model is by GT Spirit from 2015. Limited to 1000 units. it’s a riv blue 991 C4s exactly same as my car left the factory in 2014 including the customised alloys and factory aerokit options. Sourced in fun off eBay in Australia after contributing to a riviera blue thread on here with a few beers! Random but a bit of fun.
