.......I took delivery of my first 911 in February. A brand new 991.2 C4 GTS. I’ve done 1800 miles so far, mostly round the Dales.

I was apprehensive about the car living up to my expectations, but I have been blown away. I’m like a child again, and the pure excitement I get driving it makes my face ache, as I can’t wipe the smile off it.

Here’s the options:


    Crayon
    GTS Alcantara® package
    ‘911’ logo
    LED main headlights in black including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)
    ParkAssist (front and rear) with reversing camera
    Privacy glass (rear side windows and rear window)
    Electrically folding exterior mirrors
    Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)
    Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) including PASM sports suspension (20 mm lower)
    Rear-axle steering
    20-inch 911 Turbo S wheels
    GT - Sport steering in Leather
    Sports seats Plus (4-way, electric)
    Smoking package
    BOSE® surround sound-system

It’s a yes from me.

Enjoy in good health!

What is the ‘smoking pack’ again?

Thank you. The smoking pack adds a lid to the centre console, just finishes the centre console nicely.

I'd be investing in some mesh to protect the rads/condensers. One stone can cause a headache, as that's a rather large aperture for them to fly through.
Lovely car, enjoy in good health

Congrats on the dream come true... Nice pic, though you might have waited for the old scrapper in the background to pass before you pressed the shutter button.. Floor

I'll be honest that Crayon is not my go to colour choice but that looks great!

I can only imagine the roads around there are close to perfection for your choice of car!

Enjoy it, live the dream and never stop smiling Cool

Got my first ever speeding ticket at that exact location about 5 years ago ... before the camera vans got stickered up. Remember thinking what a strange place for a camper to stop for a cup of tea Cop

Thanks. The roads are incredible, weekdays are pretty quiet too. And at weekends I sometimes get up early and hit a few before the day trippers get out.

You need to get that beautiful C4s of yours up here!

I really jealous you're so close to some great roads and beautiful scenery!
I'm definitely planning to get out and find some decent roads to enjoy, although I'll probably end up being one of the "day trippers" getting in your way Thumb

I know how you feel. I got a very similar GTS nearly two years ago and it’s still a thrill to take it out... In fact, I think I’ll go for a drive now! Grin
