    Collected my 997 GTS today

    Today I bade a fond farewell to my 911 C2S when collecting my new 911 GTS.

    As usual my black beauty behaved impeccably on the drive to the OPC.  In fact she excelled herself as if to say..."I can do as well as anything you can replace me with!"

    After five and a half years of solid service, it was like saying goodbye to a dear old friend and I felt a bit of a lump in my throat as I watched a stranger remove her from my life for ever....

    "Silly old sod" you'll say - but that was exactly what I felt.

    Enter the new mistress - younger, more beautiful...oh so beautiful... and eager to please.

    I'm not sure of my initial impressions yet as I trundled home in normal, automatic mode.  But I'm left in no doubt that this new love in my life will excel eventually.  So far I have treated her gently and put her to bed lovingly... Tomorrow I will examine her potential more thoroughly...

    Here she is... at home where she belongs..Smiley

    Re: Collected my GTS today

    Love it.  Congrats John.  Don't forget to update your avatar.  God it looks nice in the last pic.  (should say it looks beautiful anyway but the angle in the last pic shows the 997 off perfectly IMO) Very envious I can tell you.

    Re: Collected my GTS today

    That is very nice.  The GTS is sooooooo tempting.


    Re: Collected my GTS today

     Many congrats john !! Its been quite a waiting period, I'm very happy for you. I agree with ResB, the last pic is just amazing. Also your garden looks great 


    Re: Collected my GTS today

     Congrats John, she has a beautiful ass 


    Re: Collected my GTS today

    The "best" all around 911


    Re: Collected my GTS today

     

    Hey John, thanks for the post!   I am taking delivery of my Carrera White GTS Cab next week over here in Northern Calif!  I think I am getting the first GTS in Northern Calif. 

    I ordered it in early October...so it has been a long wait!  I sold my '03 Boxster S to a fellow PCA member in December...so I've been feeling very lonely for a couple of months!  I can't WAIT to get the car (shoulb be on 1/29 or 1/30). 

    I even did some remodeling in my garage...just for the "new baby"!  ...so I'll be sure to post a few pics when I pick her up and park her in her new home! 

    Thanks again for the posting!  ...and I look forward to "sharing the love" with you and other fellow GTS'ers!

    Very beautiful, your pictures must´ve been the most attractive ones I have seen so far.

    By the way... impressive hedge you have there, mate!


    Re: Collected my GTS today

    She's a beauty John, love everything about it!

    Would you consider a journey to the Nordschleife when the weather clears? Would be great to meet up there!

    Enjoy your well deserved toy.


    Re: Collected my GTS today

    wonderful......enjoy.

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

    Re: Collected my GTS today

    This is a fantastic looking car and I am sure it is fantastic to drive too! 


    Re: Collected my GTS today

     Beautiful !!! And these real life photos are always so much better . 

    I am so looking for your driving report once you can let loose all these new horses . The GTS will be the queen  !

    BTW :  The shape and look of your hedge is gorgeous !!

    Re: Collected my GTS today

    Fantastic upgrade John! You have the best 997.2 IMO there is in the lineup. It's nothing short of stunning! I love it in white. 

    Also nice to see your backyard, with that camper conversion way in the back. I remember that thread very well. All the best, and im sure your new girl will be of excellent service!

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

    Re: Collected my GTS today

     Wonderful car John.

    Be interested to hear your impressions against your MK1 after a few months.

    White is the best colour ! but then i would say that...

    Enjoy it...


    Re: Collected my GTS today

    Congrats again, John ! Definitely a beautiful car.

    Which reminds me of the two GTS sitting at my dealer right now, both white, a Coupe and a Cab. Temptation was high, especially for that used (only 40 km) GTS Coupe but I had to restraint myself from doing something stupid. My 997 Turbo lease still runs until May, so it wouldn't have been wise to get a GTS now.

    It is a very attractive model though and I really had to think twice before I decided against it.

    You lucky bastard...
