    what do you think

    i went to have a look at "my" car the other day.
    i still have to go through all the formalities though, and i feel like im going to burst!!
    its in arctic silver(i know its common but it is the Porsche colour, ive seen other colours but they just dont suite the car as well as AS does) with stone grey int.

    leather(not full-has that "replica"stuff), PCCB, NAV, chrono, sunroof,etc.:!
    its got quite a few options but not things like the -20, sports exhaust.
    maybe its just me, but this car is the most beautifull thing ive ever seen.
    ive never driven taken it for a test drive though, but i dont even think i have to.
    plz though..... most of the magazines are biased, can anyone tell me what it is to drive and how it compares to an M3(driven it) i heard it being started up and it sounds incredible.

    Re: what do you think

    Congratulations BCE....The driving will feel different then the M3... Heavyer in the back, lighter in the frint, with so much more grip!!! Just wait to find out... Please post some picas as soon as you can, with some beautifull Cape sceneries in the back!!

    Re: what do you think

    is it the S or base model?

    Welcome BCE,
    You're gonna love this car, enjoy it!
    Meet up with Mike S and let him teach you the tricks of mastering a 911!
    Congratulations!

    Re: what do you think

    LOL fanch!! he lives quite a while away from where I live, he can drive it up here to run it in

    Dilinger, it has to be an S, they don't bring in normal Carrera's here for some or other reason. We only get the S model.

    Was it a demo car BCE? The demo car they had here was also artic silver with metrol blue leather with PCCB, etc. same stats like you said the normally bring the demo's in with lots of extra's so the resale of it is easier

    but hi BCE greetings from pretoria.

    Here is my 997S Cab

    Re: what do you think

    An M3 is a very good and fast car,the 911 is a porsche and therefor a sportscar and you will notice the difference whilst driving...
    It's only a bit faster but the feel is completely different.
    An M3 drives you araound , a porsche YOU drive and you feel every command you give gets an immediate response...

    totally addicted as you can see...(it's already my 4th p)

    Re: what do you think

    its an S and yes, its a demo.. its not the one you where reffering to though MikeS... mine will have grey leather.
    i think ur right Fanch, he should teach me the tricks of the 911 trade cause like ive never driven one already..

    if i remember right, i think the guy salesman there said it had about 500K's on the clock.... this does mean that i cant thrash it as soon as i get one the N1, right??

    your car looks beatifull MikeS.+ what do you think about this... not sure if you knew but there was/is (not sure if its still there) an Enzo standing at Viglietis here in CT.
    but the owner cant drive it and hes maybe gonna have to take it out of the counrty again because its lefthanddrive. SHAME! should i actually feel guilty bcause i dont really feel sorry for him??? it would have been COMPLETELY different story if it was a CGT....
    to cap it all up, i asked the dude who worked there whether the enzo has a V10 or V12.... he replied:ummmm i dont know, but it looks nice, right. then i asked whats its capacity.reply? ummmm, wellll, i thiink its 5 litres.
    just shows you, IMO, ferraris are all about flashflashlookatme while most people who drive them dont know whats going on in the engine behind them..
    when i get my baby, i want to know exactly, whats making that sound, what causes that, whatEXACTLY is that for???
    people say that there is no emotion in porsche, i say go to H*ll.
    i cant even say how many arguments ive had with my friends about why porsche is the best.

    Re: what do you think

    hi BCE, yes i think it is a great car, but don't go thrashing it on the N1 with only 500km's on the clock!! better safe than sorry.
    Yes I'm aware of the Enzo standing at Viglietti in Cape Town, but the owner is not winning with the court to allow to car to drive on our roads due to it being LHD. There was also a Porche Carrera GT, here in Johannesburg porsche centre but it too was also not allowed to drive on our roads due to it being LHD. This new law sucks!!! Just so you know the Enzo costed the owner R9,000,000 and the Carrera GT(R5,500,000 is also his but he lives half time in the states to he shipped it over to there, i don't know why that enzo is still standing there though! as you can see this photo was taken LAAAAst year

    Re: what do you think

    Hehehe I've seen the Enzo, McLaren F1 and Carrera GT(not at motorshows either! ) in the flesh, right here in SA which is SUPER rare!! Unfortunately I lost the picture of the Carrera GT, busy looking for it. It was also standing in the Porsche Showroom We had a Continental GT last year, also rare here, but we sold it... here's a pic of it none the less

    Re: what do you think

    ARGH I'll find a nice close up pictures of the McLaren F1 just now, for the time being here's a photo from a supercar day they had at the Kyalami Racetrack!

    Re: what do you think

    cool pics.... they hardly have any events like that over here in Cape Town.
    the last thing i remember was a Ferrari and Lamborghini day.... i have some pics, ill post it soon..
    im a out and out Porsche fan but did you ever here a Gallardo go around a track full out??? that car sounds awesome.
    another thing, are hereany descnet porsche clubs here in cape town?? i think here is but i never here about any events being held at Killarney, or anywhere for that matter...

    Trust us, you don't need to test drive the 997. You'll like it.

    Re: what do you think

    whats the procedures???
    will the salesman really let me thrash it???
    maybe you guys are right about getting a demo model. but those specs ARE actually what i want- arctic silver, grey leather, PCCB, chrono(does this really make a big difference), uprated sound blah blah.and then theres the whole waiting for my car thing, which will drive me insane.....

    Re: what do you think

    It's definitely worth taking advantage of the opportunity to test-drive a few before getting one...


    Re: what do you think

    the salesman won't let you drive the car unless you have a good history there normally they take you for a drive, but trust me they give you and the car a good thrashing
