EDIT: Please note this thread was started in October 2015.

In 3 years time, when it's £45k and not £70k, I could really see myself in this.

Guards Red, Ducktail, nice wheels, PCCBs, PDK

What model 991 is this Terry or does it just wear a certain aero? Question

It's just a C2S.

The duck tail and any other body extras (front PU?) aren't even mentioned on the windscreen blurb.

3 years old, 17k miles. £69,995

Sorry, not doing it for me. Ducktail looks all wrong on this car. I'd stick with your 997T Terry, and keep it forever. Thumb

Terry,

Looks lovely aside from the ducktail. Love the colour. But tell me pls... On PM if you prefer, how does your 997T compare to your 996T? I feel an itch for one and the 997 feels like a better bet in the medium term. I don't see their values dropping by much as the 996 T prices comes up to match.

Yeah, I'm not for the ducktail on the 991, just doesn't seem right. The rest of it, yum yum. Always a dangerous place to visit OPC Tonbridge (unless I'm mistaken).

Hi Joe,

Have a read here => 996T / 997 Comparisons

Now 8 months / 5000 miles in I've discovered nothing new. As a car the 997T does everything the 996T did ....... but better. To get a 996T as nice as my 997T you'd have to pay a similar amount of money and that seems crazy.

As an investment ....... Dont know ..... I bought mine to use.

I think a ducktail looks great- but only on a 2.7RS

These are my thoughts..
I like the 991 but somehow this kit doesn't look right on the c2s to me. Maybe it's the wheels?
I'd rather yr 997.1 turbo Terry Thumb

Guards Red, Ducktail, nice wheels, PCCBs, PDK


Ditto, but not the Ducktail for me and I'd prefer black wheels, especially with those yellow callipers Thumb

Edited to fix the quotes.

Thanks for your input Guys Thumb

For me it's the wheels, ducktail and PCCBs that make this car special.

I'd two-tone the wheels (dark anthracite and black, like my 997T) but otherwise it'd be Cloud 9

The key driver would be the 'cost to change'. In 3 years time I might be in 'straight swop' territory. If so the chance to have a 5 year newer car would swing it for me.

In the meantime ..... I've still got pics to drool over.

Hmm have to say I don't really like that...
Not sure Guards Red works with the 991 lights and the Sport Techno wheels seem a bit half-hearted.

Do like the ducktail though!

That car was for sale at some random car trader a little while ago at 67k, seems it got traded to Porsche Tonbridge.
