Hi Frank did you get slot at one of the 992 launch evenings ?

Negative. Sad


Frank - I have bought 7 porsches from Bolton and still didn't get an invite - had to go as Howard's guest (he's never bought a car from Bolton)

Graham kindly offered me a spot to go to the Chester launch, but I've got the guys rendering the brick fence over the next couple of days, j just wouldn't have made it in time. It would have to be Wilmslow or bust for me.
I think someone mentioned that slot of the invites are tied up in data protection gubbins

The Bolton cars appear to be the same ones at Chester tonight, also, here's one for you, the sales man told us they the press & dealers tested them all in Majorca a while ago 80 different variations of pre production 992`s he said they weren't homologated being prototypes & they most were due to be crushed scrapped at some point soon Surprised

Agate Grey, Racing Yellow and Dolomite Silver were the three colours on display at Hatfield this evening, all shod with Goodyear's.
Bit crowded for a proper look so I shall pop back next month and spend a bit more time with it. Initial impression is that the shape is doing a lot more for me than the 991 did when I first clapped eyes on it.

As someone who fell in love with the 991 at first glance I was taken aback by this but I popped in to an empty OPC Tonbridge showroom this morning and I get where you're coming from.

The Dolomite Silver C4S they have on display is absolutely gawjuss and (though it makes me sad to say it) made the Agate Grey 991 parked outside look dated.

It's interesting how the eye becomes used to and accepts new shapes when they come onto the market, but I "got" the 992 instantly. And yes, totally understand the dated appearance of the earlier model(s). Having said that, the line up of beautifully presented air cooled 911's wheeled out for presentation last night still looked fresh and eye catching.

Are the 992 performance figures correct?

It seems mental that a 992 C4S is as quick 0-62 as the latest GT3? Question

Sort of puts into perspective why the turbo engine was a necessary evil ! And 31 mg, thank god it’s going to sound Shiite like the 991.2, meaning the LOTNA cars retain there value - phew...

Pics below probably show the imporvement to the ar5e end, I think I’d defo be speccing the black roof worship

I got a bit of a surprise when the salesman told me the performance figures for the S and the 4S. The torque of the Gen 2 Turbo is a lot higher and especially in Sport. Whether or not they have the same mid range remains to be seen when I hopefully get one for a test drive.
Not just that but the handling is supposed to be improved greatly, especially if you go for RWS which I know a lot of people won't bother with unless they're tracking them.
I do prefer the shape over the 991 and I'm looking forward to seeing the Turbo in the flesh, should be a world class supercar.

Just spec'd up a std Carrera S to what most of us would like/want and it comes out at £112,073. Plus a 4S is only £5300 more.

Agreed on the shape, they seemed to have achieved the impossible! Would never be tempted, the 991.1 wins the sound battle hands down, that’s the only reason I binned the 997.2. Seems the only gripe on the reviews is the sound. Otherwise looks a 5 star car.
But if I was Grin 3 years down the line there will be some well priced examples where someone else took the depreciation hit Thumb

Interesting to see that both cars in the pictures have the standard exhaust. Wouldn’t have thought many ordered without sports exhaust. Question
And how happy is the dude in the silver car Grin

Good to see some different pics Martin, the two air cooled beauties made an appearance at Hatfield on Tuesday.
