I picked this up on Tuesday. Very basic car - metallic and Sport Chrono and that's it as far as options are concerned.

It's my first Porsche although I drove a 997 a few years ago and was seriously impressed by that, I'm very pleased with this car. The cabin is very nice and the grunt is massively impressive.

It'll be a GT car for me as I drive from Andorra where I live to various points around Europe. I have a beater for driving locally as the local driving is poor to put it mildly.

That’s a lovely motor. And the scenery isn't bad either. What are the roads like in the Pyrenees for driving, or is that a daft question?

Looks beautiful in the sunlight, great colour choice, but then I would say that wouldn’t I.

It is Gentian Blue, and the interior is Mojave Beige which isn't as dark as it looks in the configurator, but is very nice in reality.

Driving impressions. Very planted. Turn in very neutral with only a hint of understeer on very tight bends. Power very linear and massive. Overtaking is a breeze.

The cabin is lovely and the view is really good. The A pillar doesn't restrict your view unlike the BMW 3 Series touring I've just sold. The car is easy to place.

All in all I'm very very pleased.

The photo was taken at the ski station at Grau Roil part of the Grandvalira ski area in Andorra, just over the border with France.

The roads can be very good but the best roads are generally on the Spanish side. The Spanish seem to have used much of the money they got from the EU to build roads rather than schools and hospitals. You can drive well surfaced well engineered roads with very little traffic. The further you get into the centre of Spain the less traffic you get - apart from the larger towns and cities.

The region attracts a lot of bikers - I also ride - for this reason.

Is there a restaurant on the left of where your car is parked ? Skied Andorra several times now and that run looks very familiar.

Stunning car is Thumb

Gorgeous car and health to drive. thumbsup

My sister and family live just over the border in the Ariege, so you have some great motoring roads on your doorstep in the summer months. Cool

The car was parked about 200m from the Grau Roil Hotel. The run is a Black down to the lifts.
