    Are you sure. I thought he had erroneously a black roof?

    So the "secret" new spec he mentioned,  is not a carbon- or magnesium-roof...Smiley

    You were correct though, bud. He's explanation is below Smiley.

    """It was a donor roof during build because for some reason mine wasn't available. It's just an independent panel that lifts out so makes sense, although I don't know why that was the case."""

    Indeed, nice plate. A Zürich plate similar (ZH911000) went for 20K CHF recently angel

     

    Since LU911001 is my plate, I will certainly claim the proceeds if ever an auction system for the benefit of the owner is installed in Canton Luzern Smiley

    there is no carbon roof option to be specced on a ''regular'' GT3, let alone exposed carbon Smiley

    At best, you can go with deviated color if they approve and it is not something either easy or cheap Smiley

    Re: Olive 991.2 GT3 Clubsport

    Made it through the test of self-restraint that is the running in procedure. The rush to 9k was finally there for the taking. It was the first time I actually ventured past 7.5K rpm, and that's where the fun really starts. The induction voice sings from 7k rpm onwards, and it's surprisingly loud in the cabin the first time you experience it, much louder than Mezger GT3's. The exhaust is completely drowned out by the engine's induction and metallic "zing" from 7.5K onwards. Amazing sound... The rush in acceleration from 7k to 8.5k rpm hardens noticeably making chasing the redline all the more addictive and rewarding. That said 8.5k to 9k rpm doesn't seem to bring much to the party, unless maybe the engine needs to open up a little bit still, I feel the engine gives its best up to 8.5k rpm. The manual gearbox is a real delight when you start pushing the engine, it shifts mechanically and precisely, but I do understand why people would opt for PDK with an engine of such intensity. To keep it on the boil constantly, nothing would beat a PDK, yet I remain convinced that for my mixed use the manual is the more engaging option.

    Chassis-wise I haven't really explored much, it oversteers nicely and controllably as you'd expect, it also communicates extremely well, 'seat of the pants' as well as steering feel. My expectations were high but it exceeded it on every level. Now to schedule the oil-change post break-in, alignment and fitment of the uncorked exhaust.

    Omg that smile is right from your avatar. How cute. 


    Re: Olive 991.2 GT3 Clubsport

    My insurance says no one under 30 yrs old can drive my car.

    My 14 yr old will be waiting as long as your 1 year old to get behind the wheel!

    Cute photo. Agree re rotation. Was going to post some last week of the Mt Panorama visit.  Most were upside down and I gave up.

    Re: Olive 991.2 GT3 Clubsport

    My girls were bad ass go kart racers by 10 and driving my 996 and 997s by age 12 in parking lots (not on the street until they got their permit at 14). Insurance on my Turbo is $650 per year. ( they are now 23 and 27)Kansas is not so bad. 

    I am so pleased to hear that you enjoy the manual sooo much. It would be my choice if I could choose.

    For when viewing pictures that are shown sideways or upside down, click on them to view them, it will open them in a new tab and will be displayed correctly there for some reason.

    Re: Olive 991.2 GT3 Clubsport

    To avoid rotated pictures, you need to save the pics on your desktop first then you can upload them to RT and they appear corectly. 

    Great kid Frank ! My middle son drove my RS on track last September at age 13. Managed to hit 200 km/h on the straight.  We had such a good time.
