    4th birthday

     With my fellow RTers indulgence and because I am sick of looking at boring spy shots of the 991, I want to celebrate my 997 C4S 4th birthday. 

    I had a beautiful sunny afternoon to take some photos after a birthday wash and polish. I have had 28000 km of completely trouble free driving joy. I use it for some daily drives, some weekend fun, some spirited early morning secret roads and some track sessions. 

    The best bits - sports exhaust which I aways have on, and sports mode - I just love the extraordinary throttle response - no lag !!!. Driving in third gear at 3000 rpm and nailing the throttle, even better in a tunnel I often have to go through.

    People sometimes ask me why a C4S when we have no snow and little rain. I really like the wider hips, the view of them from the mirrors and from behind. I also like the planted feel with 4wd less nervous than I found the C2S. Perhaps better for my limited skills...

    I see the beautiful other cars you guys own and often feel some envy. I have test driven many of them and they are great. But I still just love how my car feels like an extension of me and responds to every little input. 

    And my wife approves even though I drive her mad looking for "safe" parking spots but she feels that the car is cheaper than a mistress. That is true - my annual maintenance costs have been minimal.  So there you - a proud owner and his four year old child

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

    Happy anniversary - a stunning car, especially in Aqua Blue! Smiley

    Just traded in my C2S (with sport exhaust and Sport Chrono Package) on a new Carrera GTS.  After 34,000 km, the C2S still runs like a dream - so I know what you mean.

    Your car looks so good it's giving me second thoughts about going for Carrara White rather than Aqua Blue, which I also considered. Smiley


    Re: 4th birthday

    Fantasic pics, Sevoman - and a beaut of a car.   We are just starting the experience with our C2S; still has not done a full summer of driving yet - but we are working hard on it.  In our case the 911 is my wife's daily driver and our joint fun touring car... she is getting better at PDK shifting than I am.

    Just got back from one of my regular stints in Perth and Sydney... not a hardship at all to spend time in these cities.

    Thanks guys. Actually the colour is cobalt blue not acqua blue.

    Re: 4th birthday

    Happy anniversary sevoman, your car looks great, the turbo wheels go very well with the C4S wide body. Keep enjoying her in good health.

    Lovely report Happy anniversary sevoman
