I keep telling the wife that the birth of each kid was the most special day but..... Very Happy
I hope I don’t have the same issue as when I picked up the 991. I spent 45 mins moving 1/2 mile from the dealer in a major jam. 😂
I think the 991 will drop a fair bit over 12 months and then people will realise what a great daily they are. The 997 is more emotive but for a daily they nailed it with the 991. IMHO.
Those yellow ones might be hard to shift though....😜

Always a deal to be had... 991.2 secured a discount, no trade in. 992 no discount, but negotiation focused on good deal for trade in value.

Brilliant news sideways! Remind me what your build date was?? Can’t have been long? Was it 5th-12th March?

Mine is 22nd to 29th March build, so would be a delivery in a couple of weeks time. I’m guessing collection between 12th-19th April for mine.

Was due 13th March originally but it was actually born on the 11th.
From my understanding software update is done, no issues with tyres and Porsche realised what a poor 1st quarter they are having so a few 911 in March will help.
Just 4 more sleeps 😆

This is one that Porsche have got SO right. It’s going to be a massive seller. Hopefully it won’t affect 991 prices too much Sad

There will be a flood of 991's onto the market in the next 12 months, making them cheaper than 997s. The market is going to tank for the 991, especially mispainted racing yellow cars Grin

If mine arrives on the loader tomorrow, I should be picking mine up Friday from Silverstone with any luck.

No at all bad after only ordering less than 2 weeks ago! Super excited.

OP.........that is a beautiful colour Mr. Green Mr. Green

I ordered at the end of November, a Jag XF R Sport sportbrake black edition, in ceasium blue, for the wife and I picked it up on the 14th. Looked good on the website...but in the “flesh” ii is awesome. Similar colour to your car, so hopefully, it will be the same for you Thumb

I look forward to your future posts giving an insight to your impressions of the “new baby” Very Happy

Having just bought a nice spec 991.1 hope your prediction comes true, I have to say I am in love with this car, so excited about it the sound the drive the whole package, I have seen the 992 & didn't think I would like that, but think that might be my next one in 4 years, trying one for an afternoon next week.

Just a few more hours to go.
Car on route to dealer at the moment ready for collection about 4pm all going to plan.

Will try and post pictures later if I get time before it's dark. Tomorrow is the eldest sons birthday so it might not get enough of a look in.

Mrs sideways has already given me 'the look' if I disappear off. Might need to find an excuses to go the shops for some really obscure things. Question

thumbsup great colour, superb wheels. You must be pleased.
Get your son in the left hand seat tomorrow and give him a birthday treat, bribe him if necessary. You might get some brownie points back.

Brilliant! Was wondering how it was going for you today.

First customer car from my dealer was handed over today also...

main question, what tyres are they!?

(how many miles were on the clock on delivery, always a funny one that)

I went for a sneaky late night drive.
First impressions is that the power is slightly more consistent through the rev range with less noticeable boost. More like an NA car.
8 gears makes it more busy and you notice it when using the paddles.

Noise is definitely better. I didn’t have PSE on the 991 but this one makes some nice crackles and rasps. A quick blast through the hindhead tunnel was fun 😀. Not as loud as my RS4 but great sounds.
Grip is phenomenal. I couldn’t get it to slip even when trying a bit.
Tyres are Goodyear. I have no experience of the brand but in the dry they seem good.

Have noticed people like to get a good look at it, so I assume it looks sufficiently different to other 911’s for the uninitiated.
Colour is amazing. So many different hues depending on the light.

The interior is great. I’m still working out some of the functions that I want to see while driving. Having the ability to set my own button is useful as well.
Seats are really comfortable and more grippy than the last ones. Also the leather is more “matt” than the 991. In a good way.
My 7 year is annoyed that there is no small storage try in the middle of the tunnel in the rear! Says I should get the other one back😂

Front lift means I no longer worry pulling over the dip into my driveway 👍.

Overall really pleased with the car. Thanks for the kind comments.

Fantastic!

Oh no, my 7yr old daughter likewise is not going to be happy about that either! Lol. She’s looking forward to the red seat belts though to match the brakes.

Enjoy your sunny weekend... I’m on countdown now, nearly into single digits of days to wait.

Be intriguing as I’ve gone for 2wd again. Looking forward to Silverstone in 4 weeks time!
