    Upsa:

    Costa del Sol (a village called Mijas, near Marbella) is my happy place kiss

    Cheap, cheerful, great food & wine, friendly people, and we love our apartment there. Ideal for the summers when Dubai turns into a sauna

    Funny: Last summer, we rented a house in Mallorca. One day, we heard a loud glass breaking noise and our neighbor's son had fallen through the terrace glass window, cutting himself all over (it was a bloody mess). My wife and me took care of him until the ambulance arrived (which took 90 frigging minutes, unbelievable, the boy almost went into shock) and in the process, we found out that the family (parents and two kids) were initially from South Africa, living/working in Dubai(!) but spending the summers in Mallorca because it is way too hot in Dubai. They owned this house (which is the same house as"ours", so around a million EUR), so they always came there (even had a car, a Citroen Cactus, always there). Seems that many from Dubai come to Europe during the hot summer months. I would actually stay there and enjoy the heat. Smiley

    Re: Official: New Porsche Carrera T

    We have heard of a few people from Miami spending the summer in the Hamptons to « cool off ». A pretty expensive proposition...

    Still not in Miami, that’s for retirement...


    Re: Official: New Porsche Carrera T

    We are in a timeshare type organisation that has a nice site called Reserva de Biniorella  in Camp de Mar in south west Majorca overlooking a bay  - we are thinking of spending some time there during the worst of the winter months

    Hi Achim Smiley

    Good to see you around here again and congratulations on ordering a 911T. Smiley 

    We are still very well pleased with our Boxster GTS, three years on and no wish to change for the new model with its awful flat four engine, I have tried several and experience of it does not improve my opinion of it Smiley

    I have a “letter of intent” with our dealer for the 718 GT4, Smiley confidence is not high that I will actually get offered one, or even its suitability as much as I would love to own one of Porsche’s GT models. 

    My professional life has come to an end with my retirement two months ago, the weather here has been bad so not used our GTS much so far this year but we have some tours planned.  Maybe in the not too distant future we can meet again Smiley

     

    Hi Tim, first of all I hope you and Mrs. DC (warm regards also from Mrs. PJ) enjoy your new life Smiley I agree with you on the 4-pot cars (had 718 Boxster, 718 Cayman and 718 Cayman S each for two days and a couple of hundred kilometers) - the engine spoils the experience of the otherwise brilliant cars for me SmileyI keep my fingers crossed with your GT4 allocation Smiley And of course you and SWMBO are always welcome over here regardless of Brexit (if you need a "supporter" for obtaining a Visa in the future, just let me knnow Smiley) As for a retirement home in sunny countries: I recently read an interesting article about the portugese government having introduced a kind of tax holiday program for pensioners relocating to Portugal Smiley We also thought about getting a home in southern Europe, but for now we probably will follow the concept as described by Christian: 3-4 month extended stays in the south when the ugly season starts and the Ring is closed Smiley

    I love heat, even steamy one but I have to have A/C here and there where I can go to once in a while. 

    Dry heat? Different story. I can stay hours outside in dry heat (Lake Mead for example, temperatures around 45-50°C in summer, we are usually out on a boat for 3-4 hours), even did a 6(!) hours ATV tour through the desert at 47°C, no problem. Like I said, I love heat but when it is humid, I need A/C to cool off from time to time.

    And a nice side story...after a long factory collection day my son and me returned to our home town. We were waiting for my wife in the family car on the side of the road...a nice guy came to the new car and said: 

    „Your are Blueflame from Rennteam...I know the story of your new car from the T-Thread“

    Crazy small world...wink

    That would be an emergency plan...Smiley 

    I just did 250 Km with max. 4.500rpm today. I can say, it feels more solid than my 981 Spyder and better under hard braking.The suspension feels not harder or softer in sport+. It‘s much quieter than the Spyder.

     More info after the weekend...btw I got the new Michelin 4s with it.

    Re: Official: New Porsche Carrera T

    Excellent - so you won the tire lottery Smiley Alternative would be the Pirellis ? Six weeks to go.... Please post as much impressions from your car as possible to prevent us from getting back to the retirement home stuff Smiley Come to think of it: beside Miami Blue Mallorca Yellow also would be a nice name....Smiley

    Can you already compare steering wheel feel and gearbox with the Spyder ?

    I will give you feedback about the steering after the weekend-drive to the DTM-RACE in Hockenheim.

    The first 50Km I hated the 7S-Gearbox - the 6S from the 981 Spyder or the 6S from 991.2 GT3 is totally different.

    After Km 51 my brain got used to it and no problems any more - even with very fast shifts, but I would prefer the 6S from the other cars...
