Hello to all on this forum.
Been lurking around here for a few weeks and post a little on PH and from there arrived here. Smile

Had several Porsche's over the years and seem to gravitate my way back to them in one way or the other.
Started out with a fondly remembered 944 Turbo S back in 1992, most recently a great little 981 Boxter GTS. This went and for a brief period had a McLaren 650s Spider which has now made way for the 991.2 TurboS Cab.

Arriving in the next 4 weeks and sooooo looking forward to it.

Spec is Carmine Red with black gloss Aero Kit along with black high gloss air intakes, lower mirror trims, and a few other extras like Porsche entry & Drive, front axle lift, carbon steering wheel, carbon sill guards and burmester.

Looking at some of the awesome specs of cars on here there maybe a few others I should have put in there but too late now. Most of all will be hoping for lots of chat and info regarding these great machines.

Cheers all. Mark

Hi Mark.
That will be a fantastic looking car. Carmine red is beautiful.

I picked up my 991TT S in march. Just come back from a great road trip to Monaco, all run in now.
After the 650S you will not be disappointed with the TT S Performance.

Also the ride is much better than the 991tt Gen 1, and almost on a par with the 650S.
Hopefully the sun will return for you at pick up.

Thanks for the positive info, good to hear the performance is right up there!!! Although I might be able to use the 991 a little more as in the Mac it was so sensitive to damp it was just silly at times and scared me too. Also whilst I did love having the Mac every time I took it out the attention it got was verging on ridiculous. Sometimes we were waiting for 10-15 mins before we could get in the car and drive off.
Definitely looking at a few more euro trips in the 991, love going to Epernay and southern Germany. Smile

Hi Mark, you found your way over here then! A bit quieter than PH but often a different perspective and less 'politics'. Ha.

Anyway, that car is going to look spectacular - there's not many Carmine Turbo's so looking forward to seeing this!

Lol, depending on how Palmball's car compares to my TTs you may not be far off the mark....

I like quieter...and a little more enthusiasm for the brand.

The McLaren lot are a really great bunch of car fans, made a few friends over on the Facebook site and well worth visiting if you have one. Looking forward to the Silverstone Classic where there should be in excess of 100 McLarens in attendance. If my TTs is here by then I'll be going in that otherwise it's the i3!!!!

Hoping to have got this thing this week.... read somewhere there are delays in shipping the 911's from the port. Dealer is keeping stum and not telling me any thing other than it seems a bit strange to be sitting there this long.

It's either someones dinked it or there is a recall on something?

Anyone more the wiser?

Cheers Mark

Hi Mark
Can't help with what the delay might be, but my 991.2 GTS arrived at my OPC just over a week after it left the factory - that was last week so no delay on mine. Not picking it up for a couple of weeks though, bad timing for us as away now and busy the week we get home. Will have it registered in August rather than July but I'm not prepared to wait until sept!

Hope you get good news soon.
Gordon.

Thanks Gordon, thats not sounding too bad then.
Whilst you can't actually get it (mildly frustrating) knowing it's there and ready is a kind of consolation for you.... Thumb


My car left the factory on the 7th/8th and arrived at the port for shipping which should have been last week. I was told that it would be ready this week so just a tad disappointed as things are on hold (like PPf and a last minute holiday) whilst waiting.

Anyway, I'll just go and watch another you tube video. thumbsup

That 650s is beautiful. Really interesting comments on the attention. Having got to the position where I could afford one I find myself thinking that I dont really want to be seen in something on that level - I would love to own one and drive one, but I am not interested in that sort of attention at all - especially from the boy racers.

When I got my C4s I didnt even bother trying anything else. My mates were aghast that I hadn't tried an Aston or a Ferrari, but they weren't the ones spending the money! When it's your own dosh it's amazing how fast your thinking changes. I have zero interest in Ferrari's now. I would love a McLaren, but I've never even summoned the effort to arrange a test drive. I did try an R8 V10 Plus and an i8 before going for the C4 GTS... but in the end there was only one answer.

PS - One of those mates now has a C2s 991.2! Are you reading this Mark? puh bye

Locked down spec on our 991 turbo S cab yesterday. Nov build with Jan delivery. thumbsup

Quite a bit of of the exclusive options don't show up on the configurator. Last thing waiting for is whether Porsche will give us the extra bit of power they have given to the 500 exclusive turbo s
