That's very nice. Did you spec the car? Really nice to see something very different.

Thanks Thumb Whilst i'd like to say yes i spec'd it, i would be in fact lying. i happened to pop in to the OPC on the complete off chance, as i was killing time whilst my wife was at an appointment just to see if they had any 991.1 GTS in stock.

After a short chat with the sales guy he advised that they had just had a 991.2 delivered which was well spec'd... as soon as he showed it to me with all the delivery wrapping still on it, i fell in love and had to have it!

The car itself was spec'd by the sales guys to generate a demo and then used stock. i got to test drive a 991.2 Targa as this car was not even PDI'd to get an idea of what a 3.0 turbo was like. and then put a deposit on it.

Nowt wrong with that Tony. Both of mine were specced as demos, both moved on way faster than the dealerships expected Thumb like yours it means a great spec.

It appears the unusual colours are very very rarely specced by owners from new. But they end up highly prized later on. Not saying it’s right or wrong to spec more subdued cars but I’m certainly grateful that someone does! Thumb

That’s a great story @basilbrush, can see why you felt you had to have it, the Nardo grey, black wheels with those yellow calipers is a stunning combination, fresh but not flash, modern but will look good for years to come IMO.

What other goodies did they spec? What are the interior colours?

PS. The Rivera Blue, platinum satin wheels, decals and aero not too shabby either G2 Thumb

RWS
PCCB
LWB Seats
front axle lift
Bose sound
cruise control
PDLS (black led headlights)
Carbon illuminated sills
carbon steering wheel
carbon interior trim
Alcantara GTS interior package (rhodium silver)

I guess that’s the “Porsche Christmas at Bicester Heritage” on 9th December that PCCG emailed about a few days ago?

Nothing to share Graham so it must be window shopping.

After hating them, to quite liking them, and now really wanting one. 5 years they've grown on me a lot. Despite seeming massive the actual size difference is small, testament to the new design. Hope to get one soon thumbsup

Especially in guards red with the sport design package puh



Or speed yellow



Well close! 22 sleeps to go ! Never thought I’d actually get one and the 997 suddenly seems like a 993 Grin odd
