    Sun's got a new rig coming!

    Sun convinced his mama to order him something with  very low floor so it's easy for his aged body to get in and out, and racing seats so he doesn't have to lean so hard around the cornersSmiley  Feb. build, nice work SunSmileySmileySmiley

    Re: Sun's got a new rig coming!

    Good for you! I assume the GT3 is cancelled?


    Re: Sun's got a new rig coming!

    Nice. Congrats Watt!


    Re: Sun's got a new rig coming!

    Is this for NZ? I guess the GT3 RS will serve as transportation until you receive it? 


    Re: Sun's got a new rig coming!

    RHD yes NZ. Sun cancelled the 14 RHD GT3, there are GT3 RHD spots for 15 he's thinking about but  yes this Speciale is Sun's Fall [NZ Fall]  forward car, the RS get him thru winter [NZ winter] and the Macan turbo will take him through the high country stations of the S Island in summer [NZ summer].  Lord let him live that long.


    Re: Sun's got a new rig coming!

    sadBtw, Sun just sobered up and reviewed his strad interiors, and... Switched to charcoal .... To relief all over NZ, the dog has great taste Smiley


    Re: Sun's got a new rig coming!

    WOW.... congrats!

    Cant wait to see the picture with the dogs and the mud inside angelsmiley

    RHD yes NZ. 

    Thought so, as I saw GB in the link, but it connects me to the default LHD site. 


    Re: Sun's got a new rig coming!

    Watt and Sun you are aware the Speciale interior is very spartan. The car doesn't even have arm rests. They had to save 200 lbs somewhere.


    Re: Sun's got a new rig coming!

    Many congrats Watt - I think I'll commission Sun to spec' my next car...

    Nick,

    Sun has the "spartan" gig down.  He started in his Strads and Scuds.  He sure likes those racing seats!

    Getting picked up after a date at his girlfriend Betsy's house.  He would go under our fence, walk the 2 miles and go under their fence, break through the dog door and and jump howling on the parent's bed at 4 am when she was in heat, and they love him dearly.   RIP Betsy, a lovely yellow LabSmiley

    John H:

    Many congrats Watt - I think I'll commission Sun to spec' my next car...

     

    Suns says thanks John!  Final spec:

    argento N., rosso calipers, no stripe no shields, silk or grey wheels

    charcoal interior, rosso inserts, rosso stitching. no stereo, nav, etc

    Large racing seats w adjustment, smoking kit [for Sun's Valentine]

    Full size spare

     

    ....Now he's trying to decide whether he should bother with a 2015 GT3 order spot, who knows whats what thereSmiley

    Funny!

    The sad part of the GT3 fiasco is I honestly don't believe Porsche knows what's what. They are dealing with the issue by the seat of their pants. Those of us in limbo have not had any information as to where we stand. We did get an email today telling us that engine replacement production has started (Duh!) and we would be contact "shortly" about details. Given Porsche's history to date in handling the GT3 issue, "shortly" could mean several weeks. Smiley

    Yes,

    i just dont feel like getting jived all over again after posting deposit, speccing car and having it fall into a nebulous hole.  The best revenge vs Porsche is ordering a Speciale....
