    GT2RS ordered!

    It should arrive in September.

    Haven't decided on which colour. Trying to push for a paint to sample and so far dealer has said they will look into it.

    Took carbon fibre fenders, sport chrono package, 6 pnt harness for passenger side, carbon fibre centre consol, carbon fibre interior, fire extinguisher, porsche crest on headrests and carbon belt outlet on B-pillars.

    Can't wait!!! Smiley


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    Wow, congrats Mike


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    Mike, I really envy you now.  The GT2 RS is my favorite car choice right now, amazing product. 

    Congratulations, just can't wait for pictures and a driving report. 

    Are you going to pick it up yourself in Germany ? It would be the hell of an experience I guess.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    Could we, ahem, relocate next year´s Rennteam meeting from the Nordschleife to Mike´s crib?

    Congrats, by the way...

    Thank you RC! I hope I will have time to be bale to do that, but after the country has been on 'holiday" for the last month due to the World Cup. It's time to play catch up Smiley

    If my schedule will allow perhaps, I will take up that idea - always wanted in anycase Smiley

    Well Mike, now that the Word Cup is over, someone has to fill those stadiums with his cars... Smiley

    I heard Soccer City will be renamed Mike-One- and Ellis Park in Mike-Two-Stadium, is that correct?

    Lucky guy...congratulations


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    Not NBR, mike's driveway is more like the parade at Goodwood. There is not much missing.  It did not take much time to catch your breath after the CGT outlay. I have to believe there is a GTO in the future. And perhaps some detroit iron; ZR-1, Camaro Z28 too. And we need an updated roster or group pic, because it is impossible to remember everything in the collection.


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

     Speaking of the CGT, have you driven it? If so, what do you think?

    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    How many cars does a person need?  Oh wait, I would do the same if I could.

    Congrats Mike!  Again!


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    The most exiting purchase you have made  

    I can't wait to read your driving comments + see the pics .

    The GT2 RS would be my choise as of today......

    PS : How did you manage to get an allocation ? Here you need to have owned a GT3 or Gt2 in order to get one

    ....maybe he did before he joined rennteam Smiley.... and I had forgotten about the CGT Smiley I guess that counts for a GT2 + a Gt3 Smiley

    Smiley

     Are you kidding the moment Mike steps into a dealership red light bulbs go off on every main factory and calls start coming into the dealer with representatives telling the salesman they are bumping people from an allocation just for him Smiley

    Anyhow CONGRATS Mike !! the GT2RS is the ultimate porsche, by far the best car in their lineup, second only to the CGT. about the color go for black (so you can park it next to the CGT and live the wet dreams of everyone here) ... or anything except that blueish silver.


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

     White with carbon hoot next to the white V12Vantage and Phantom...... - 


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    Wow great news Mike, this was a must have for you and i'm happy you jumping on a slot for this beast. It will be another timeless classic for sure!! Congratulations

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    Thank you for all the warm wishes guys, I'd quote each and every one of you and thank you directly, but I don't know how to do that on this interface

    @Rossi: LOL!!! That's more like it Or have I just opened another can of worms?

    @racerx: Hahahaha, I'm still a good far way off Goodwood's material The GTO, SLS Black Series and lightweight MP4-12C are definitely on the list I'll post an updated list in another thread. Won't be too long before I can get them all to one location.

    @nberry: Nick, I haven't had a chance to drive specifically my Carrera GT. It's still in the process of being registered in another country. I hope to get first driving impressions in the next month or two.

    @WAY: Thanks Way! I'm still no where close to finished

    @gnil: Thank you gnil! It's a very exciting car indeed! The dealer kept an allocation one for me, I just had to decided if I wanted it or not before they passed it onto the next guy on their list. I wasn't aware there was a rule that you required a GT2 or GT3 in ones ownership history, to have an option to purchase the GT2 RS? The Carrera GT must count for something?!

    @fritz: It's true, none of the previous cars had any appeal for me. There weren't "limited" enough and you lose a boat load of money (especially at our prices) on depreciation. If I'm going to take a knock, it must be worth it!

    @Enmanuel: Hahahaha! Thanks Enmanuel!

    @BjoernB: I thought about it, but the white is really doing nothing for me. It feels too overdone as every sports car is white now days. Time to change the trend

    @Atzporsche: Thanks Atz! I think so too!

     

     


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    Yeah, I know it's been said, but you're my hero

    Slow In, Fast Out


    Re: GT2RS ordered!

    Mike,this time is too much...

    i think you must give us a present...

    You can't have all the cars that we dream!!You must send us a car a month in way to partecipate to your happiness

    So,with 1st september you can start to send ME the CGT ,then the Turbo S at 1st October,etc.

    AHAHAHAHAHAH

    And about the GT2 RS...well....i have nothing to tell,i like it white/carbon,but this is the last time you can choose the colour

    Mike I love your confidence and spirit that you really believe you can drive all these cars and still keep a day job Now you only need a little test track in your back yard! Enjoy in good health.
