    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    Nice comparison of the three spoiler positiions of the 991 turbo (S),posted by Porsche NL today on facebook.
    The text next to the pictures says
    "Base position", 
    "Speed setting, automatically set at speeds above 120 km/h",
    "Performace, set via spoiler- or sport plus button".

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    Putting final touches on order.  Any particular interior options that any of you recommend?  Car will be black/black.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    Black wheels?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    Deviated stitching... red if Turbo (or no PCCBs), yellow if Turbo S (or yes to PCCBs)

    And DOUBLE CHECK the order, you don't want to miss a little section as Porsche has a million ordering codes for the stitching. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    TRIPLE check to be safe :)

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    Contrast stitching doesn't appear to be available at the moment.  Does anyone know why?

    As far as color, have flip flopped several times between Agate Grey and Black exterior.  I know black will look pretty smashing, but have a slight worry that Agate Grey might not quite do it.  Also, a black/black turbo is a slam dunk on resale when that time comes.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    Black doesn't seem to be the right color for the new Turbo, it hides lots of design elements (I wonder if Porsche did that intentionally? ). On the 997 Turbo/S, the side air inlets and air outlets in the rear bumper are bigger and better visible due to their design but things are different with the new Turbo models. Also the front lip, part of the active aerodynamics, will be better visible on non-black cars, just keep that in mind. The whole car in black kind of distracts from the particular design elements, so you basically get a black mass of a 991 but you are missing out on the design highlights. At least I think so...haven't seen a black production car without camouflage, so maybe I'm wrong.

    If one orders black, I would at least set an accent in the interior: Not everyone is a fan of the black/Carrera red bi-color interior but there are other bi-color interiors as well. Black on black is kind of boring and while deviating stitching looks very nice, it isn't available yet, unfortunately. You get however red stitching (back of seats, dashboard, etc.) with the black/Carrera red bi-color interior.

    Also be aware that nowadays, you can change the exterior color easily (foil) but when it comes to the interior...well...nothing much you can do about it.

    Speaking of as why deviating stitching isn't available yet, it is a mystery for me too. Maybe it has something to do with the first production batch, more options should be available end of this year (week 44/46 and later). What is kind of strange is that for example, I cannot change my 991 Turbo S order anymore, not even the exterior or interior color. My car is supposed to be produced in September, so I really don't understand that. Maybe it has something to do with the factory vacation but according to my knowledge, Porsche keeps the factory up and running, just at a slower pace with less workers. So I really wonder why a car, which is scheduled for mid September production, cannot be "changed" anymore without delaying production. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    I was at my dealer and unlike the GT3 - he still has slots for Turbo S 2013 delivery....

    Are you surprised? The 991 Turbo S costs almost 60k EUR more. I bet your dealer has 918 slots available too. Smiley

    I also heard that Porsche kind of "allocates" GT3 production slots depending on how many 918, Turbo/Turbo S and/or other specific models the dealer ordered. Smiley

    My dealer has, as far as I know, two Turbo S orders now (he got another one in last week) for 2013 but four or five (I don't remember anymore) Turbo orders. Unfortunately first Turbo production is scheduled for november, which is also weird (Turbo S are coming first).

    Why would people order the Turbo and not the Turbo S? Well...this is a mystery to me too. Apparently people look more at money than I thought and they seem to prefer to add certain (leather) goodies instead of power. Smiley

    I should ask my dealer what these (Turbo) cars are worth, so I could actually tell if this is about the money or not.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    I apologize for the bad quality, I have no special Photoshop skills, just did a one minute blackening job on the Turbo S, for your convenience only.

    You can actually see that...you cannot see much of the "details".

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    RC - believe it or not the dealer will get 3 GT3's - 2 sold 1 for them to display - but buyable after a while .....- maybe I should get it and sell it to Nick for a premium indecision


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    as to the Turbo - at 162k EUR DE base with a lot standard now I don't see why you need a S for ?  


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    I wonder what color this is (the 991 Turbo S in the photos)? GT-silver or Agate? Difficult to tell.

    Do you know?

    Not sure if anyone would buy the standard Turbo without any additional options, like for example the Sport Chrono package but apparently you are right, people do. Smiley

    My dealer also gets 3 GT3 for this year, he is very small. He is thinking about getting a car for the showroom (two are already sold, one is available for november production) but he isn't sure yet.

    Not sure, but I bet on GT-Silver Smiley

    Yes, looks a lot like GT-silver, depending on what monitor I look at the photos.

    RC,

    Do you think an all black interior works well with the Agate Grey?


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991 Turbo and Turbo S

    A black interior with yellow stitching and yellow seatbelts would look great (Turbo S has yellow PCCB calipers) with Agate. Some people add yellow dials but I wouldn't do it, too much.

    I really don't know, this is so difficult. At some point, my dealer recommended ordering white and using foil to get the color I want. White seems to be the best base color for using colored foil. The problem is: What about the interior? I cannot cover the interior in color foil. 

    Difficult, very difficult decision but like I told you before: I took the plunge and went for Agate and black/Carrera red bi-color. Now it is too late to change anything. If I do, the production of my car will be delayed by at least two to three weeks (which I still find weird but...)

    Christian, there is no better white in the car industry than the Porsche white. It suits the car perfectly and it does not matter on which model. Like red is to Ferrari, white is to Porsche.kiss
