    C4S Cab. X51

    This post has been a long time coming, but better late than never. Back at the end of July I picked up my new C4S Cab X51 in Stuttgart. The car is simply incredible! I drove down from Stuttgart via Zurich, Lugano, Milan, Nice, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid, Marbella and back to Madrid, close to 5K km in total.

    Here are the specs:

    C4S Cab. Basalt Black
    X51
    AT Natural Black Leather
    342 Heated Seats
    446 Color Wheel Crests
    482 TPS
    635 Park Assist
    666 Phone module
    674 Tracking system
    900 Factory pick up
    CCW B Pilar in Alu. Look
    CNA Leather in the front part of the dash (cannot describe it better, see photo)
    P01 Adaptive Sport Seats
    405 Carrera Classics 19"
    608 Homelink
    640 Sport Chrono Plus
    672 Extended Nav.
    680 Bose
    CDZ Front of gear shift lever in leather (again hard to describe see pic)
    P12 Rear View mirrors anti-glare, electric and sensor
    XMZ Central consol in Leather
    XPA Leather thick sport wheel
    XSC Crest in seats
    XMP Shades in Leather
    XNS Leather in steering column
    CUV Carrera 4S (see pic)
    XTV Leather in door (see pic)

    This is my 3rd Porsche but my 1st Carrera. I have owned 2 Boxsters S previously. All I have to say is that I love this car, the way it drives, sounds and looks. The car is simply perfect.

    On driving the car, all I have to say is that this is one fast agile balanced sports car. The car does not feel heavy as some say it is just fast and incredibly neutral. I do not find this car any less fun than my 986S and of course is much faster.

    On options, I got X51 but did not get PCCBs, I was convinced by dealership that I did not need them. I have driven a C4S with PCCBs before and I yes, of course the feel of the brakes is just incredible with PCCBs but frankly I have to agree with the dealer that my car has more braking power than I will ever need. Of course you might say I did not need X51 either, but what the heck, I wanted the extra power and sports exhaust. Why would anyone buy a 997 without sports exhaust is beyond me, if you don't have it, get it!. The sound is just incredible, I have it always on.

    On other extras, I love every single piece of extra leather that I got, I think the car looks awesome with these minor details, but that's just me.

    I would also say that factory delivery is a must if you can do it.

    All that said, here are some pics:

    Nicely equipped! It's nice to see someone who spent more than me! Love the shot in front of the Casino.

    Those are great pics of your beautiful new car, enjoy it to the fullest.

    Re: C4S Cab. X51

    Wow, AS4s incredible car & great photographic talent!

    This is asking a lot but I would appreciate any additional close-ups of the defroster vents' w/leather stitching, also closeups XMP Shades in Leather +
    XNS Leather in steering column.

    Pic #4 is extremely well done... cattle nervously eyeballing the leather-enveloped interior.

    Beautiful pics of a beautiful car - I didn't know that PAG allocates factory collection depending on the cars' colours.
    pic #2 seems to say: it's the day of the black cars

    Re: C4S Cab. X51

    Beautiful car :-) Well done!

    Re: C4S Cab. X51

    Many congratulations - you have a fantastic car!

    By the way, how are you finding the tyres you have? (Looks like you have Bridgestone REO 050A Pole Position tyres)

    Re: C4S Cab. X51

    Absolutely beautiful. Triple black...very nice. She must have cost a bunch equipped like that.
