okay - I've read a few things on line - but does anyone else get like a burning rubber smell from the back of their car after it has a decent run out. Its my first 911 and I do remember a bit of a whiff from other peoples cars. Car is 4 years old with <17k miles on it.......reassurance required please!

Perfectly normal and shows your driving properly Thumb not as pronounced as a 997 but always there after a spirited drive.
Next you’ll be looking at your oil pressure and temp gauges and wondering where they should be Grin

As above, all very normal.

A quick search on here would have informed you that the smell you experienced ocurrs on the earlier models and not just confined to the 991.

Had my eyes on jonttts, and I’m sure finding his car on bricks one Morning is pretty normal in his neck of the woods Grin However I’ve since found out as his car is “just a boxster” there not wide enough for a 911 Grin so the search goes on....

Fair comment ...you don’t want to put the Boxster wheel on the Carrera ......wouldn’t feel right ...

Keep an eye on all the ads ( as if you aren’t) I am sure something will come up .......

I have more sets of wheels than space to keep them in .... Porsche/Audi/Range Rover/ /Merc....I just might need them again one day so hard to get shot of them ......😎

Any 991 carrrera S in titanium? Grin there’s a few about but too much coin, especially considering I need to get the colour changed Mad

It’s Porsche smell - accept no substitute! Every example I’ve ever been in does this, especially this time of year. The rear wheels ping detritus and water onto the exhaust silencers and your P&J does the rest.

Nothing like it when you open the door and it catches up to you or you’re downwind as you walk into the house and it lovingly guides you to the front door.

As for the car.... you deserve better, PM me for my number and I’ll come take it. Ducktail and all! Thumb

I think the ducktail really suits the 991 whereas it would not have suited the 997 ....!

SB - No Carrera wheels sadly or I would have been in touch ....

My original Turbo II's mothballed , Summer BBS CHr's and now the 991 Carrera 19's & winter Sotozero's.....
