    The pregnancy is over

    About 9 months ago I ordered an 05' C4S from Revvv (Larry) at Champion Porsche, and here it is now ready for delivery
    I should recieve my car in a few weeks....more pics and reports then.


    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Beautiful color! Is that GT-silver or arctic? Have a cigar!

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    this might be a stupid question, but why would you not take immediate delivery? having the car on the floor might add scratches, etc?

    just curious...

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Beautiful. Looks like you got the GT3 wheels, which are great.

    I assume you're having your car shipped to you, since you're not taking delivery for a while, but let me suggest you ask them to take your car off the showroom floor, or at least shut the windows and lock it up, so you don't have people sitting in your car and causing whatever damage might happen from less-than-concerned folks getting in and out of your car.

    Yes, it is being shipped to me....
    The car has actually been there more than just a day or so, and I would guess the back of the showroom is the best place for it, detailed and inside protected from the elements. Since the car is sold, and it has the sold sign on it, I wouldn't think anyone gets to sit in it. I would hope the car is locked and closed up

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Congrats! The wait is over, enjoy it!

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    congratulations, i really love the look of the 4S!

    but tell larry that you need your car IMMEDIATELY!!

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Beautiful car!
    Nicest looking of all 996 in my opinion.
    And 9 months waiting time for a car in end of production life, that is amazing!
    Congrats and enjoy!

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    someone willing to wait 9 months for a car just shows how loyal some true enthusiasts are to the marque.

    PS. was it really neccesary to wait that long? especially with the carrera 4S, most dealers should have had allocations that were about to go in production, so you would have only had to wait 3~ months MAX.

    anyways, thats all in the past, the long wait just makes it that much sweeter when you finally get it!

    congratulations

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Congrats to your new car, but...

    ... why do you have to wait weeks for it to hit your driveway?

    And aren't the bumperettes coloured by now? Definately something to think about in the next few weeks!

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Dear JP
    Lots of good luck with the new baby its just georgeous. I got my C4S 05 back in October and I just love it.

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Congratulations, and welcome to the C4S club.

    I ordered mine in January, was behind the wheel in early May. Be sure to email me about painted bumperettes - eric@bumperplugs.com

    All the best.

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Thanks everyone, I'm very excited, as this will be my first Porsche.
    -I placed my order in March for an 05' C4S to be delivered around Oct. I am in the early process of building a house, so that financial matter came first. This is why I wanted the car so late in the year. Actually the 9 months went by quick. The car is in FL at Champion (got a great deal on a spec car I couldn't get at any local,(5)dealers), and it will be delivered to the west coast, hence the delay in shipping....have to wait for a truck scheduled to come to my area.
    I've always loved the 996 C4S and thought from what I saw at the time, the 997 was nice, but I didn't care for the front of the 997 (lights, grill) or alot of the interior. Now that I have seen the 997 in person, yes, it is a beautiful car, but I am extremely happy I opted for the C4S instead (couldn't afford a Turbo ). I will be taking care of a few of the obvious mods when the car arrives....clear side markers, silver badge, painted bumperettes, etc, etc, etc.
    My only regret, in hindsight, is I wish I would have ordered the X73 sport suspension, and deviated stitching on some of the interior.

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    awesome congrats! looks gorgeous!

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Your decision, as far as I am concerned, was the right one. Having the 05 C4S shown above I just love the car. I do believe that the production figues on our car will be around 230 for the year. As a matter of fact my dealer claims he can't order any more this year. What have you heard?

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Stew- I haven't heard any figures about production, but I have only seen one, maybe two? 05' C4S's at dealers in my state. I think I was production #136 or something.
    BTW, your cab looks great

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    JP
    Take a look at this one I have owned it since new its amazing what 20 years can do its different yet similiar.

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    sorry here is the picture

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    Congrats! How come you opted for the 996 and not the new 997?

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    If your asking me and not JP the reason is that I wanted a wide body with a convertible both of which were not available at the present time.

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    If your asking me....I love the 996 C4S, more than the 997. I don't care about the extra hp right now, as well as the other things I previously mentioned. The 996 suits me fine for now, it's what I want. Hopefully, after many years of enjoyment with this C4S (being my first Porsche), I will then upgrade to the 998

    Re: The pregnancy is over

    You know JP somehow the interior of the 997 does not thrill me at all there is just to much silver plastic. Here is my interior.
