    My new ride

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to share with you my new ride. I order it with loaded options (big damage) including X51, PDK, SPSAM, PDCC. Still breaking it in, yet very impressed. I came from 997.2 GT3.

    Now this is what I call a mean looking bad ass 991. Smiley

    Congratulations, very nice color combo, not a friend of elegant colors on the 991. Smiley

    Re: My new ride

    I love the combination!  Very stealthy and elegant at the same time!  The more I see the Agate grey the more I like it!

    Awesome ride!

    Enjoy it in good health.

     

     

     


    Re: My new ride

    Thank you all. 

    My impression so far after 600km and didn't exceed 5k revs, I dont regret going for PDK, keeping in mind that I never had an auto on any of my past sports cars and never seen myself going for dual clutch! I'm driving the car mostly in manual. Auto is amazingly precise on all modes. It is so easy to communicate with. That being said, it does not mean the I will not mis manual occasionally. 

    The car is no where comparable to 997.2 C2S. The gap is so big.

    The options I went for (X51, SPSAM, PDCC) collectively made the ride so deferent from all the 991S I tried with various configurations over the last 6 months.

    I haven't tracked the car yet :) and didn't experience it on the limits yet, I does not feel a downgrade after the 997.2 GT3. I don't want to jump the gun, it is likely to be an upgrade, keeping in mind the sporty specs I opted for. It makes me wonder how good would 991 GT3 variants are going to be.

    Looks wise, my opinion wouldn't count as I may be biased. Friends with 997.2 GT3/RS owners though my car would steel their cars thunder pausing next to theirs! I'm not really sure about this!

    I will share more with you in few weeks after having enough experience with the car. For the time being, enjoy these pics.

    Good day.

    Re: My new ride

    that car is pure sex. 


    Re: My new ride

    Thx for the pics. Again: this is the very right combo for a 991! Never thought a 991 could look that sporty and expressive at the same time.

    Thanks . . . Yes it is. It is an amazing color. The color really changes with surroundings. It is nothing like Meteor or Seal Grey.

     

    Thanks to all.


    Re: My new ride

    Indeed. Mine is Agate Grey too but yours seemed a bit darker...

    I saw the car in agate in few countries in Europe. It really looked lighter there with the surrounding environment . But when I got mine home, it rally looks darker. No complain, I liked it anyway.

    It is beautiful indeed ! Smiley
