Hi,
Well now I’ve actually gone and bought a Porsche (we’ll deposit paid and finance signed) i thought I’d share what I’ve bought and some ideas I have for it

Firstly some all important pictures of it at the dealers, I’d also like to say the dealer has been very helpful and so far I’d have no hesitation in recommending them.












Specification

Guards Red
Black Full Leather
Aerokit – ‘Porsche Exclusive’
Powerkit – ‘Porsche Exclusive’
Heated Seats
Bluetooth Telephone Module
Interior Lighting Package
Rear Parking Assistance
Folding Mirrors
Sports Steering Wheel with Paddle Shift
Instrument Dials in Guards Red
20″ Carrera S Wheels in Black
5mm Wheel Spacers
Guards Red Seat Belts

Although I really like the car, at the moment it’s a bit too red and needs more contrast so I’m considering some of the following ideas to break up the red

These aren’t in order of preference it’s just a list of possibilities and I’m very unlikely to do them all...

Vinyl wrap gloss black roof
Vinyl wrap gloss black engine grille
Vinyl wrap carbon wing
Vinyl wrap wing mirrors black gloss

Tint rear window
Tint side windows

Porsche side decal
Carrera S side decal

Remove 911 designation from rear

Zunsport grilles in front spoiler

Replace engine grille with GTS or 50th anniversary grille, not sure about brake light though with ducktail. Shame the 991.2 grille doesn’t fit it’s much better imo.

The interior is pretty much how I’d like it with exception of red dials, not an option I’d have chosen.

A real beauty, about time he was snapped up. Your red problem is similair to my yellow problem. Id certainly go with the black gloss mirrors, and possibly the roof OR just the mirrors and side decals.

Regarding the rear, just PORSCHE looks just right (IMHO)

Hadn’t even noticed it until you pointed it out I was trying to stick to sub 60k but with a bit of haggling and a good residual it was in budget.

Porsche on its own is definitely better imo so much cleaner!

There’s a red one with very similar spec on YouTube with a panaromic roof and it looks so much better with that contrast and best thing about wrapping it, if you don’t like it I can take it off might even try it myself since it’s such a flat area.

Your yellow one is really nice, the bright colours look so good. I’d love a Miami blue in the future

Not sure it’s a “he” though I’ll decide once I drive it, the kids normally pick the names of the cars!

No, I’ve driven the 991 S before but not with the Powerkit so it will be interesting to see the difference

Congratulations r21, very nice worship worship

Colourwise, have you thought about a 991.1 GT RS colour combination? That could look really good - Black carbon wrap bonnet, mirrors and spoiler plus fit a carbon splitter OR you could go with Grey carbon wrap instead.

Just a thought Smile

Black roof does look good, think it’s an option I’m leaning too most out of everything I’m thinking about.

Robin at P&D has been great so far, open honest and no pressure.

Thanks, the GT RS does look very good in those colours but not sure how it would look on a Carrera even with the Aerokit

Might try and mock up some changes in photoshop

Very nice. Red looks great.
What's the spoiler at the rear - ducktail and something else on top?
I don't recall seeing that combo before.
Enjoy!

Full aerokit as opposed to just ducktail, must admit it looks good.

Thanks but adding more lettering is definitely not want I want to do... Smile
I think it looks too busy with the 911 script on there, if we all like the same thing though life would be boring. Every change I do make though is reversible so if I want a change its easy to do.

Hopefully the car is being delivered tomorrow....just a tad excited!!!!
