Just been to see my dealer this AM as the 911 is in for a check up.
He said my car is built and has been told they are waiting for a tracker update(?) which should mean the car is due "sometime" in April. He says he got some conflicting info when he was at Reading last week, so it's seems it could be anytime between last week of March and last week of April. Dont know

He said mine was still meant to be the first one off the boat to them. Another customer, who was also an early order, had his delayed as he went for the Arum wheels.

I saw a swatch of the Gentian Blue and am really happy with it. The colour really changes depending on the light.

Today, i'm banging around in a Panamera GTS.
Blimey it's BIG !

I bet Gentian will be stunning on the 992.

I sat in a 992 for first time today. The door handles inside and out are pretty sleek and funky. The gearstick is expectedly odd. The controls all very tactile, start key far more minimalist.

Dash & dials a step forward for sure.

Most importantly!... the handbrake is finally fixed!... pull toward you to engage, push away from you to release.

The CCM Spitfire is absolutely gorgeous and very cool. Cool thumbsup

Did CCM deliver directly to your door?

Look forwards to hearing your first riding impressions.

Excited much??!
I haven’t booked my silverstone yet. I still have the one from my 991 to use. May take a mate.
On an aside I had loads of fun today sorting insurance for Friday.
No one lists the 992 version at the moment so I am having to talk to insurance people to get confirmation they will offer a valid insurance based on the 911 carrrera 4S. I know it is the 991 but admiral have assured me ( recorded call) that all is ok!
That’s 40 minutes of my life I’m not getting back 😱

I would have to agree, from what i've seen Gentian Blue looks spot on, as the blue's have sometimes been too bright or too dark

Look forward to seeing the Paldao interior package from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, as I think after a long time they have nailed interior design

Seriously can’t wait, and so pleased I picked the wood interior. I’m probably the youngest person in the country to select wood trim! 🤣

Noticed at tonight’s event the 992 doesn’t have headlight washers... much sleeker.

Question though? Does it have Apple play?? I love that, gutted if it doesn’t. I couldn’t see it in the cars when having a tinker.

Cheers for that... looking forward to having a proper play with the tech. The 992 really is a very different car to the 991.

First couple of customer cars at the dealer. They have approx 6 cars being delivered over the next month I think he said.

Time to transfer my number plate! (I put an older standard generic plate on new cars to make them look older to the uninitiated, instead of having a beacon of “it’s a new car” plate).

Anyone paid for gap on their new car. I’ve always used Ala, as their rates were excellent for a £50,000 policy for 4 years, for only about £300. Unfortunately they now cap purchase price at £100k. Had a quick look at couple of others but they were straight to £700-£800, which is less desirable in the relative value of doing it or not.

It can be worth going “agreed value” on the insurance instead of gap Question probably needs a discussion with a decent broker.

For anyone that went to the launch evenings, i loved that the interior shot they gave was the black leather with the wood trim that i've ordered... i'm convinced I'm probably the only order of that spec in the country at the moment lol. such a gamble, its either going to be nasty or stunning Wink

Car due in the country any moment... may already be here! depending on the lag of the porsche computer system. I'm guessing that earliest i collect is Thursday, or latest by Friday 19th.
