I’m torn between getting an S in April, or a Carrera in June.

Same dilemma as I had last time... the car is for road use, I won’t be taking it on a track, the Carrera is blooming blisteringly fast!... for the extra £10k, aside from the top trumps of a bit more boost pressure to add about 40 horses, with the body shells now the same, what do you get for the extra £10k?

I’ve specced up an S on the configurator, to be same spec as my current car... list is £93, plus £12 of bits, takes it to £105. My 991.2 car was £79, plus £12 of bits taking it to £91. So I assume the price increase of 992 is about £4K so I have a choice of £95 or £105... for practically the same car.

Such a dilemma.


I'll be ordering the base 992 shortly and I think for a 'daily car' it's just fine Smile

That’s great news! When do you have to lock your spec by? My lock date is mid feb and build in March with delivery start of April.


Honestly i didn't ask about lock in. I assumed, possibly wrongly, that it was from now. I'm happy with my spec and the price is already making the other half tut nooo

Nice spec 6. I really like the wood but “wood” like to see it in the flesh.

Dilemma on the wood trim... it'll be either awesome or rubbish lol...

A number of reviews have recommended the wood trim with the 992 interior design.

Carbon trim - Have had a number of times, 20yr old tech now?

Brushed Alu - had that for my last three cars

Painted trim - never had that before? a possible alternative?

Leather trim - already a lovely amount of leather.

Decisions, decisions...

A nice spec indeed! I thought privacy glass on 911’s was generally not preferred? Thought most people didn’t like them and for resale it was best avoided. Unless that has changed in recent times?

No, don't think so. Have seen quite a few and no issue with mine when buying or trading in.

Rear wiper is the controversial one lol (not a fan myself, I wouldn't buy one with).

its mainly the key colour combo... majority of the rest is academic... PDK, SC, Exhaust the top 3 "essentials".

I couldn’t decide. The salesman keep suggesting it looked good thus my natural distrust of salesman made me leave it as normal! I do like the retro 991 badge though.... aahhh. I’m not going back into spec land 😱

I also keep looking at Carmin red and thinking hmmm. My son insists he won’t want to get in it unless I go lizard green... wish I could spec one for each day !

Had a look at two other versions...

The simple retro 911 font badge.

or

de-badged and the porsche logo painted black for max-stealth.

Love the colour that you've picked!... I'd get that one!, but i've had three blue cars in a run so thought to get something different.

Went to the sweet shop today to look at samples to decide final spec.

Any personal doubt on wood was cleared as soon as i saw the sample, looks and feels really good in the setting of the dash trim config.

My logic was:
Leather - theres already lots of leather
Aluminium - my last 4 cars have had aluminium
Painted - GT Silver painted interior trim - not enough of a contrast with the other metal
Carbon - I reckon that majority of buyers will buy carbon, so i want to be different
Wood - Retro dash with the dial config, black leather and red belts looked awesome together.

Sales staff are at Porsche for 992 training this week, so the guys are going to take a few photo's of the demo car interiors for me.

Interesting, I wanted the privacy glass but decided against it as was under the impression that its not really preferred by the majority so might affect resale, think i'll add it back on now!

and yes SC, PSE selected already Smile

Regarding the badges, I think the rear looks quite clean already with the license plate further down so I think the standard badge or atleast just the 911 badge should be there but again these things are all subjective I suppose

The new 992 looks fabulous but in all honesty I couldn’t put wood into the cabin of a 911 but that’s just my opinion

I know! Everyone will order carbon, as I have in the past.

Want something different, and in the specifics of this, am liking the finish. If it were lacquered/plasticy, wouldn’t consider. But it’s a nice natural unfinished finish...

Porsche are definitely pushing it. Lots of marketing images of the wood interior in the 992 press cars, with the long term design link.
