Some seriously nice looking 992s in here.

For those who have come from a 991.2 GTS, what do you think of the noise inside the car while driving? Is the exhaust note better than the GTS? I note you have particulate filters on the 992 v the 991.2? Do you think it is loader/better?

Annoyingly I think the non-sports exhaust looks better, but I'm not sure it will sound remotely 911 without the sports version.

I'm struggling a bit with my 991.2 GTS. The car is fantastic but it's same dam quiet!

Ordered it from the States, seems none in the UK dealer network.

It's a different type of sound completely to the 991. It's a lower octave flat 6 warble type sound, than a pops and cackles sound. Hard to explain, needs to be experienced in person.

Car has arrived at Emden port but requires some quality control checks - does any one know what this is about? The dealer said it might take another 4-6 weeks for delivery? How can this be possible?

Standard PDI. Took about 3w for mine from Emden. They are always cautious with handover date estimates, I wouldn’t be concerned.

Possibly dealer not telling you (or knowing) about a small issue? I have a natural distrust of sales people, so I might be wrong! My dealer was not forth coming with detailed info as apposed to 6appeal's being super helpful.

Quality control sounds like a fault/damage? Might just be a minor mark and they are being cautious.

Hope it get resolved fast for you.

Mine is similarly delayed, completed but still at the factory awaiting quality checks. At least they've not dinged your car, it seems everyone is affected.

Anyone else noticed the steering on full lock jumping has been designed out on the 992?

Partying like it’s 1899...

Blooming eck, past the 2,000 mile mark on the motorway at midnight last night heading home, followed by tight country roads.

Car proper bedded in now, it’s a serious serious weapon... experimenting with the different modes on different roads. It takes sweeping or tight corners in such a flat and controlled manner, but so smooth on even terrible roads. The acceleration is on another level! Took my dad out for a ride, he was a mechanic and car technical trainer before retiring and he was in absolute shock experiencing a launch start pinned in his seat (thought I’d given him a blooming heart attack!!). He couldn’t stop laughing afterwards once he composed himself.

I love the 992 exhaust tone! You can have some right fun, the deep warble at 1,000 rpm, the scream of foot down, flick of the accelerator in between.

Right, I best get another 2,000 miles on it this next week!!!
