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.
