    Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    After about a 4 month wait it is finally here and I want to thank everyone on the board for all the great posts, pics, buying advise, etc!! It was most helpful when making all of the decisions on model, options, color combinations and ultimately helped me get the 911 that is perfect for me! Below is the list of options and a few pics of the car. I have put about 800 miles on the car so far and it has exceeded all of my expectations! I have been good about keeping it under 4000 rpm and can't wait to finish the break-in period so I can really drive the car! PSE is AWESOME!! I don't think I would have thought to get this option if it wasn't for the many endorsements for PSE that I read about on his board. Thank you! The sound in the 3000 rpm range is enough to keep me satisfied during break-in BTW - the exhaust note while driving is wonderfully enhanced with the Targa roof open! Hope you enjoy the pics!

    It's MY Dreamcar! Great! Enjoy it and please, please post more pics of your car!

    Greetings and save drive!

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Wow! Great car! Congratulations and best of luck with it. I was thinking of a Midnight Blue / Beige C2 but ultimately chose the Atlas Grey / Beige one that I have now.

    One request, could you please take another picture just like the "Interior" shot you posted but this time with the Targa roof open? I want to compare and contrast the two shots, same location, with the door open, etc.

    Thanks!

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    It's a beauty alright. for the two-tone interior! Yup, you got a keeper!

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Welcome to the club, Toddy.
    Magnificent specs and color combo. Please tell us about your experiences with the black mats (dirt on black?). If there are no problems, some of us may change their tan mats into black mats (The Groom ordered black mats too).
    And please more pics of the interior and driving comments .

    Sorry, last one went through twice... This is the last one for now.

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Black and Sand Beige looks great!
    Many congrats!

    I'm still not too sure about that chrome strip - but then again who cares - it's a great car!

    Enjoy in good health!

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Anodized aluminum... Not chrome! Moto, I know what you mean about the "chrome stripe". I probably would have opted out of it on the Targa if I could have when I ordered the car (obviously not an option). That said, I have really learned to like it now that I have seen it on this car. IMO it looks great with the midnight blue and not so great with some other colors. There are other subtle "chrome" or metal details around the headlights, wheels and interior that really look good with the dark color/aluminum stripe. I have seen the Targa in white, silver and red and didn't care much for the aluminum detail with those colors. Last week I actually had someone comment about why Porsche didn't inlude that detail on other 911's?!

    Ok, I'll ask and receive! Would you give me your car, please?

    Yeah, I'm kidding

    Please don't stop the photo-session of the "BEAUTY"... you can be proud of it.

    Greetings

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Very nice, congrat

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Congrats, looks great! I didn't really understand the allure to the Targa until I actually sat in one--it then became clear (no pun intended).

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    WOW! What a stunning car! Many congrats and thanks for sharing such wonderful photos...enjoy!!

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Stunning car, congratulations. Good call on the black mats, IMHO.

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Beautiful car - congratulations.

    I'm interested to hear Targa 4S owners' views on the PASM sport mode. I understand suspension settings are slightly softer all round compared to the coupe; wondering if that make the stiffer PASM setting more suitable for road use than that on the coupe ?

    Re: Midnight Blue Targa 4S

    Thanks for the pictures and congratulations on your new car. These Carrera Classic Wheels are growing on me.

    Very easy to clean as well! I have always been a stickler for clean wheels and want to spend less time cleaning and more time driving
