So after a 2 day test drive in a C4S, took the plunge and placed a deposit on Saturday. Should be here late April / early May.

Not sure the wife was as impressed as me but hey it's my car so what the hell. Here's hoping I've made the right choice given it's the most expensive car I've ever bought, by a fair margin Very Happy

Black again, bit boring but I have 2 young kids so don't want it wrecked. Hoping the seat belts lift it a little Thumb

Does the sunroof open upwards? If it does, I think Porsche have let themselves down badly with that design, they look pants. Sorry.

The rest of the car sounds great. I hope you really enjoy your time in your new car.

Nice spec Andy. I think the lower suspension and spacer will makes this car look very nice on the outside.
Just a suggestion, I recently spotted one with rear decorative stitching and Porsche emblem on headrest. I think these two Exclusive options do lift the interior and make it feel more luxurious.

No need to be sorry, would be a boring life if we all wanted the same thing. I'm not overly keen on the sunroof opening upwards myself but the kids loved it on the demonstrator I had when they were riding in the back and it was one of the things my good lady set as a stipulation for me buying the car. If it was down to me I probably wouldn't have bothered in all honesty.

Probably sounds a bit odd - wife says you can have the car but you have to spend an extra £1500 because the kids like it - go figure!! Rolling Eyes

The SPASM -20 works best in the real world together with PDCC, which dials back in some extra comfort on rutted city pavement, while also further improving handling in the twisties. It's expensive (about £2,000) but a damned sight better value than the sunroof or adaptive seats (the sports seats plus at £200ish are the best for slim to average frames), and will keep passengers much happier owing to flatter cornering (absolutely no roll whatsover) and better suppression of uneven surfaces.

I have driven most variants and this was the combination that most impressed. And yes I bought a PDCC car.

Sports Exhaust? Much better value than the adaptive seats IMHO. The 991 sounds amazing with the PSE. Vroom Vroom.

First post on this forum just to say if you want DAB it will available on 14MY 991 June builds on. Dont get caught out like I was. Despite telling them I wanted DAB they said they had no idea when it would be available. I paid the 10k deposit 3 weeks later build was locked at the same DAB became available on the configurator for Boxster, Cayman etc 911 june builds on dealer claimed they didn't know it was comming, Yeah right Perhaps your dealer was more honest and put you in the picture if not now you know. Good luck !

Thanks for the info on the DAB. Now delayed car for June build so should have early July with DAB. Bit of a pain as it means waiting an extra 8 weeks but at least I'll get a 2014 build.

Hi

Do you know if there are adding anything else to the June 2014 model other than DAB.

Also agree that the sports exhaust is MUST!!!! Sounds fantastic.

Cheers
