    Pictures of my new 997S

    Now that I have her (997S) for little over a week now, what do I think about her? What A Car!!!

    Below is my initial impression (this is a newbee point of view, my first Porsche):
    Opinion are drawn from comparing to cars that I have driven in the past: 330Ci (with Sport Suspension) which is now my daily driver. Z4 3.0 (with Sport Suspension), M3 E36.

    Appearance:
    She is stunningly beautiful and just absolutely breathe taking. Her hip...Oooo that bodacious hip, the line, the curve around the waist is outright perfection. Boy, she is so hot; she makes me want to do things to her that I have never done with anyone else. Interior of the car is without doubt the best 911 ever. With full leather, the interior of the car finally look the part with the 100K price tag.

    Handling:
    Again What a Car!! I thought BMW was the Ultimate Driving Machine, but now I know I was just ignorant. It makes my 330Ci steering feel numb and slow, like a Toyota Camery. Corner taking with this car is night and day comparing with my 330Ci. The speed this baby can carry and amount of lateral G generated is just a monster.

    Acceleration:
    Still in break in period. So, I can't really test it out yet.

    I think you forgot to post the pics on Rennlist. Nice car what color is that Basalt?

    Re: Pictures of my new 997S

    Nice color combo, my guess:

    Basalt Black exterior,
    Stone Grey interior?

    Congrats! At last. Now that wait wasn't so bad now was it?

    Pleeeeese be advised, the tires don't get full grip for 200 miles. Be careful messing around as you mention in above quote.

    Re: Pictures of my new 997S

    Very nice alin330!!
    BTW is that interior black??? The computer i'm using at the moment is very [censored]...

    Congratulations+be safe with your new baby..


    Re: Love that garage !! Nice car too !!

    It is a beauty. Congratulations and the very best I agree with your analysis of the Porsche vs. BMW. I had an '01 M3 that I absolutely loved, until I drove the 911. No comparison. From fender to bumper, the 911 is a superior vehicle. I got the "S", because I didn't want to hate myself later. Maybe it's just an ego thing, but I love it. My wife has an '03 Z4, which she loves to drive and if I can get a deal on a trade, a Boxter may not be out of the question.
    Anyway, this is about your new car, so I'll stop rambling.Have a BLAST, but most of all, be safe.

    Re: Love that garage !! Nice car too !!

    it's a very nice choice.
    good luck with the P.
