He sent me the spec when he was ordering to have a look through, pretty sure it was the -10 with rear wheel steer. Lovely car. The brakes are the biggest departure from anything I have driven. Gut wrenching.

loving the last photo thumbsup puts in to perspective just how compact the 993 actually is next to the alfa, and just how big the 991 is!

Turns out is lowered by 20mm. Felt very good on the road, no crashing, not overly harsh, very flat cornering. Lovely

great pics...thanks! That's the colour and spec of the car I've ordered! To be delivered May. Nice to hear -20 suspension still good as I did wonder.
And I'm really envious of the Alfa, what a fantastic looking car!

Great colour: I’ve gone for silver as well, hopefully arriving in the next week or two.

Excellent! That’s one of the drawbacks of ordering a new model as there isn’t anything to drive to see exactly how it feels. One of the reasons I’m about to be a Porsche owner for the first time is that I was very impressed by the ride quality on the C2S and C4S - a 318d with M-Sport suspension is harder...

1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

I did not expand too much on the handling but happy to. His old car was 991.1 C4S, Auto had a proper drive in this when we went to Skye last year.



Lovely car but if I am honest not that focused. I would say similar to my M5 and certainly no where near the 997 GTSRS or my 993. Enjoyable but floaty.

The new GTS Gordon ordered is manual (not sure about seven forward gears - probably get used to just ignoring no. 7 unless on the motorway) with rear wheel steering and as I have discovered 20mm lower ride height. Last night we went on long country roads, tight bends and mixed surfaces. Car wasn't phased at all. I drove half of the journey. Very flat cornering, not real pitch or roll under heavy braking or cornering. Bumps and pothole soaked up with no groans. The car is a real step up from his last C4S. Really stable and as a bonus it pops and farts on overrun. All round, bloody awesome.

I take it from the sticker in the back window that you've seen the latest Petrolicious video on YouTube?

If not and you're an Alfa fan, you might want to check it out. Thumb
