Question, did you consider the 2S and what were the main factors for going for the 4S?

Um well a few reasons. I do like the way it looks but also like the traction of 4wd. I drove back to N. Ireland a couple of years ago when it was -14 deg C in my RS5 and I don't think if have made the ferry in a RWD car. I had a 2S for a weekend and it was pretty tail happy in the wet. I decided my driving ability was better suited to a 4S... Rolling Eyes

Either way I'm really pleased I went for a Porsche.

That is a gorgeous car - one of the nicest 991's I've seen to date in fact...congratulations of having good taste!

Are you from Northern Ireland originally? I'm from Banbridge myself!

Thank you very much, that's very kind. Glad I went for GT silver. The pic on the road is how it looks. My iPhone doesn't capture it right for some reason.

Yes indeed I'm from Coleraine but been in England for 19 years.

Just back from a trip to France and when I came back to my car from a visit to the Le Mans museum, this was what had pulled in beside me. New and old and the same colour! Don't think it was a 911, I'm sure someone can tell me what it was. Really lovely though, and immaculate.

Anyway 4s cruised beautifully on the silken french toll roads, changed personality for some more rapid driving on the rural roads of the Dordogne and had plenty of room for some wine on the way back as well. Only blip was a stone chip that took out the windscreen! Got a French bloke called Laurent with a big moustache to put in a new one, good as new.

Thanks. Just looked it up and realised I should have known that since it's the first car they produced. Every day's a school day...sorry for being a heathen, more of a modern car person, but I liked this one. The interweb tells me half of the 76,000 produced still survive. Can't be too many cars from that era that have that stat.
