In 2012 when I first saw a picture of the 991 I knew I'd have one one-day. I've been waiting over a year for THE right car to come along. 'Fingers crossed' that time has come.

It looked Gulf to me too. It's only when you see them together that you realise how much darker the modern light blue colours are.

Had mine since April last year and still love it. I’ve added around 6.5k miles including a PEC warm up day in it and it hasn’t missed a beat.
Must admit that I am looking forward to changing the tyres over to Michelin’s as the P-zeros aren’t the most confidence inspiring tyre.

Over the summer, my colleague picked up a 991.2 C2S manual from Germany. It's GT silver with a black interior: no wings, no funny looking front end (sorry), no stripes, no funky rims, no embellishment at all. It looks in many ways ‘just right’. Like a 911. He’s been hankering after a 911 for years.

Finally. Grin

It does need a bit more noise though. Very Happy

Lovely car.....Night and day difference in the tyres . Even during biblical rainstorms in Germany the michelins gripped very well. Pzeros (admittedly warn to 3.5mm) mine would slide about on roundabouts...with the michelins it's on rails.

Thanks G2- ironically the sottozeros that I use over the winter grip very well in all conditions.

Here's mine, along with my brother's 911 when we took a trip to Whiitby earlier this year for a nice fry up. Fantastic drive over the tops, and the breakfast was pretty good too.

Mine's a 991.2 GTS manual, and his is a 991.1 C4S PDK. They're both fantastic, although obviously I prefer mine Laughing

How does the 4S compare to the GTS ?
Big difference or subtle ?

Unfortunately the latter Terry Sad

Had a great year with the GT3, really glad to have owned one. 991 was likely next move and immediately liked everything about that one. A few other things came together quite nicely, so went for it a bit sooner than envisaged.

I bought this 2013 C4 S back in April with 17k miles. I had a Boxster S back in 2000 when they came out and always wanted a 911. This was the perfect spec that I wanted and I'm v lucky!
