Dear all,

I have now put a deposit on a 991 Gen 1 Carrera 4, one owner low mileage.
Spec:
PDK, Carrera white
PTV, power steering plus
Sports chrono with white dials
Front / rear sensors
Heated seats and steering wheel
Sports tail pipe

OPC Portsmouth has been reasonably good so far.

My 981 Cayman S will be up on OPC network ( Portsmouth)in a week or so. It is low mileage, unmolested car with decent specifications.

Hope the 991 will be a decent car 😂

Will post some photos after taking delivery later this coming week.

Smile

About the 991 C4:

Much more comfortable drive than my 981 Cayman S possibly related to the 19 inch wheels as opposed to 20 inch what I had on the Cayman.
Lovely sound track.
Did not miss Bose as Sound package plus was pretty decent.
Loved the extra stability of the 4 wheel drive system over the corners.
not felt any difference on a normal drive with the PTV. Could be for someone who really tracks the car.
Paint work was pretty decent apart froma minor stone chips on the bumper.
No regrets so far...I would have loved to have a reversing camera as well.

OPC portsmouth was very good and would not hesitate to contact them again for business if needed. thumbsup

Great spec of car, and many happy miles of motoring ahead. Thumb

If you can get the car with PS4S rubber it would be a bonus.

Congrats, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Thumb

My .2 GTS came out of hibernation last week. It went to Preston for some new shoes and the alignment doing.

I was going to hold off on new tyres as after just shy of 10k miles the tread depth was 3-4mm on the rears, but the inner sidewalls were in a right state. I only found that out when the rear wheels came off for a refurb.

It turned out the rear camber was well out. So, that's now been corrected.

Scott in service at Preston was very good too, and they were the most competitive on price.

I had my first real drive up in the Dales on Friday for nearly four months, and it was great to be back behind the wheel.

Enjoy!

The 991 is such a well rounded package, I'm sure you'll love it. Look forward to seeing the pics.

Enjoy!!

Have to say the GTS ticks all my boxes - Some people had said these may not be the best cars for comfort- well yesterday, I put it to the test with being stuck in traffic for over 3hrs around the Blackwall and Rotherhithe tunnels - got out of the GTS with no ill effects 😀 like a spring chicken

What a car....power ....that unbelievable set of bagpipes growling and comfort
