Yes that's me in picture No5 looking all forlorn and envious, wondering if I could save up enough beans to transition from my Carrera 4S to a GTS


Hi John,

You're very photogenic, almost angelic, a good face for the radio wack

Nothing wrong with a 4S mate Thumb

Hi Cheib,

Thanks you Thumb

I'm sure you are well aware of the situation with well spec'd Macan's Turbos, there aren't any being produced for a long time and this is making their values hold. They are fantastic cars and I wouldn't have changed if the deal hadn't have been too good to refuse.

Cheers,
Paul

Thank you all gentleman Floor

JD, it took me ages to learn my lines only for them to be left on the cutting room floor, anyway I love silent movies. Didn't one win an Oscar a couple of years back? Cool

Thanks to Porsche Teesside for going all out on a handover film, something nice to remember. Thumb

When there's a nice day I'll put a few photos up but I can confirm the GTS is a beautiful machine to drive. The steering is spot on and the pick up from low revs with the twin-turbos is amazing, it's a rocket ship.

It's really hard to find a fault in the car at all, if I was going to be picky I'd say the noise from the rear tyres is quite loud but then again I'd hate for Porsche to pile a load of weight on the GTS trying to erase it. After all what do we buy these cars for?

Cheers,
Paul

Hi All,

My new Pirelli Sottozero winter tyres arrived from Germany last week and it was time to get them on before the weather really gets nasty.

Porsche Teesside kindly did the swop for me. Unlike the normal Porsche winter wheel/tyre set-up for the GTS these for straight onto the existing rims and the sizes are pretty rare in this country, if not non-existent.







That's a "T" in berthed alongside.

Happy Christmas Chaps,
Paul santa

Paul

Just got a near identical car.

Can I ask where you got the winter tyres from?

Thanks
Mark

Hi Weemsy6147,

Thank you & congratulations on your excellent taste Grin

The tyres front & rears came from here:

http://www.ebaystores.co.uk/bodenseehai80

Fantastic delivery & service from them.

Hi Slayer, thank you, I'm enjoying it very much.

What is a sunny day if not a car washing day? Wink Here with my 964 for those interested in that please see "Plan B" on 964 pages.





Cheers,
Paul

I've never liked the red strips across the back.

I think your car has turned me! It looks so good.

Green with envy Mr. Green

Enjoy thumbsup

Hi Rojdog,

Thanks. I suppose it gives them another link to the new 992.



Cheers,
Paul
