I have decided to hold out for the 998 'Black Classic GTS Limited Edition' available in approx 6 years time. Sorry no spy pics or prices yet.

Until then I'm sticking with my bog standard silver S Edition Laughing

Looks great, if you like it, buy it, let's be honest there's no point buying a Porsche for investment reasons (with the rare exception)..... And you don't know how much the new model will cost yet!

I'm liking this new black edition too Thumb Is that the flat black they're showing in the pictures? Looks good actually as do those Turbo II wheels. Not seen any modern Porsche in this colour before as almost everyone who orders a black car go for the Basalt option.

Think I saw your old car on the A25 earlier today Jose. Can't be certain, but there aren't that many cobalt C2Ss around

When the 997 first arrived or shortly after, the boggo Carrera was the journo's darling. The C2S was launched before the std car IIRC but it was the std car that everyone thought was just a divine balance of sport, power, balance, value and retro to 993 looks & desireability.

Therefore, regardeless of current day appeal I could see this one being a nice car for the value seeking discerning 911 owner who will smugly enjoy their driving experience in the knowledge they saved enough for a couple of nice holidays Thumb

Mine was a flat black car and a pig to maintain, it looked good after the detail, but that did not last long as the paint is soft and no matter how careful you were cleaning it, it always looked as though a team of ice skaters had been practicing on it. nooo Defo get the Basalt as my current metalic black LR is much more forgiving in this respect.

Wish my missus would get exited about it, I would have probably ordered one from Sheffield OPC, in Basalt though with PDK and Sport Chrono +. Unfortunately she aint playing Thumb Down
