Strange that the legends model has been out for a while and yet they still have models unsold! Also not keen on the side stickers.

Hi M&MD&D,

That is a stunning looking car and spec


Thank you, the only bit I had a hand in was changing the steering wheel from leather to carbon, they had taken off the Alcantara one when ordered (see previous).

Don't worry you can save your money Nick, they were all sold months ago, mainly to collectors as there are only 15 of each colour available, highly collectable for investors. The 3 you see in my photo are all owned by the same collector & I know of another who also owns another set of 3 Surprised

Re the legends edition, I can't see what an extra £21 k over list gets you except for some side stickers, a bit of ugraded trim and a few extras that most 4S buyers are going to spec their cars with anyway!
Yes they're a limited edition and no doubt someone will be trying to sell them for £100 k more than they paid for them but they'll be stuck with them for a long time.
I'd rather have the car you've bought Paul, it looks stunning in Black and it's got a light sabre on it as well!!

Hi easternjets,

Thank you mate!

Hello All,

Today was the big day, my son and Porschekit came along for the fun, which is all part of the pleasure and fuss of having a new car, it doesn't happen often, not to me anyway. Thanks for coming John, it was great to see you, we'll catch up again soon for a run and coffee.

The OPC did a little video of the handover which mainly consisted of me getting my sh*t* out of the Macan Turbo Grin I'll put it up when they send me the link.


A few photos from today, sadly I forgot to take a photo of the odometer showing only 7 miles frustrated

















More photos from the vinyl front number plate being fitted by the guys at M & K Wrap Squad. OPC gave me the option which I'm very pleased about. They also gave me the normal plate and mounting bracket, which I'll never fit as it spoils the lines of the front.













Fully charged with V-Power




And finally,



I'll post the video and let you all know how I get on after a few s/miles.

Also a big thank you to Dave at OPC Teesside for above and beyond the call of duty thumbsup

May The Force be with you,
Paul Star Wars

Looks great Paul, sorry I couldn't make it. I like your forward thinking on the stick on number plate, don't know why they don't do that with all 911's.

You'll certainly see it when the brakes are on!

Yes that's me in picture No5 looking all forlorn and envious, wondering if I could save up enough beans to transition from my Carrera 4S to a GTS Question

But it did get me dreaming in a Yoda type of way......Mrs Porschekit would like a new Vader style 992 - I wonder if ? But then I woke up! Grin

Congratulations Paul, enjoy it, see you on the next coffee run. Thumb

That’s a great looking GTS, they really are great cars and the front number plate is a great touch.

I have a high spec Macan Turbo PP as my daily and abolsutely love it....nice to know they’re sort after. Mine was stupid money for a Macan but hey you can’t take it with you.
