Welcome to 911uk and to 911 ownership.

In time, I'd be interested to hear how your new car compares to the old one. Thumb

Thanks for the replies folks, it is a stunning car and i'm super chuffed to have it in the garage

Apparently the guy who owns Gumball bought it for his sister, and its nicely spec'd. I haven't had much chance to drive it yet, but it handles superbly (as you would expect) Feels a league above the Type in terms of build quality. Which I sold as it was coming to the end of the warranty period...that and terrible dealer service and a few faults and bad design point made me want to swap it out, before some huge bills roll in.

Spec sheet attached

what a fantastic looking car and great spec too.

Maximillian must have spent a huge amount on options as that is one hell of a spec.

Embarassed I’ve always thought metallic carrera white was a dealer who didn’t realise it wasn’t metallic Grin
I didn’t realise it actually existed on a 911 ! Bet that’s amazing we have white metallic on the BM, really special Thumb

Heaven is a 911 ......

Welcome to the club and the forum. What an amazing spec! There is, of course, no comparison with any other volume sportscar. Enjoy!
