    997S First contact -pics

    Picked it up this afternoon and went for a drive, still under break-in unfortunately but I will post a full review as soon as I get more miles on it of testing. But if I can sum up my first impression in a couple of words its: I'm so glad I got the -20mm!! wow!

    I will comment later on more elaborately but the PSE in ON mode vs OFF mode is very apparent already and its not burned-in yet, and the tire pressure system seemed to work great.


    Anyway, I pulled over in the middle of the drive and stopped to take a few pictures for the fellow rennteamer's excuse bad quality but the lighting was poor and the photographer sucks

    Photos look fantastic!! Very nice spot, and looks like a nice road to be enjoying your car. Congratulations - Hope the weathers good to you this weekend!!

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Congratulation Carlos & enjoy it in good health.

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Still good shots Carlos. Thanks for the pix and enjoy!

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Congrats Carlos, I can only imagine how you must feel after all these months.

    I really like photo 3--the compound curve on the rear Carrera classic wheel is just too cool.

    Have a great time, it's nice when the wait is over. Some say that once you have the car, you forget about the wait. Not me, IT SUCKED. So have fun!!! And don't worry too much about that 4,000 mark on the tach. Break-in procedures are written by engineers....... AND THEN totally re-written and exaggerated ten-fold by tie-wearing front-office cover-the-company's-backside-ad-nauseum bean-counters!!! You know it's true!!

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Great pics Carlos! Can you take more when the weather improves?

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Yes carlos!!!!!!!!!

    Congrats mate!!!!, I am very happy for you
    She is a beauty!!!!!!!

    Look forward to your video, but first do some miles

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    CONGRATS, Carlos...a real beauty. And don't worry about the pictures, they're way better than what I'm capable of. Just can't wait to see more of your car and to hear about your experience. I'm almost as excited as it would be my car. Have fun and drive safely.

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    AWESOME!
    Can't wait to see and hear MORE !
    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful car !
    I also want to know - What color is that ?

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Congratulations - looks great ... Enjoy.

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Beautiful Carlos, congrats.

    Cheers.

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Thanks a lot guys!

    throt & stradale, the color is Basalt black, a nightmare to keep clean but it looks so good its worth it.

    96bossnine, I've been a nice boy with the break-in but patience is running thin already

    997TT, you bet, as soon as we get some sunshine

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Way to go, Carlos

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    Thanks Grant & Dilinger

    I ordered it in late Decenber but was put on waiting due to the Sport Exhaust not being available at the time. Otherwise it would of been 2-3 months of wait.

    Please beleive me, it looks so fantastic under that so nice stormy weather......I feel relly anxious to read your first impressions driving such a sculpture......so well appointed....and in such roads!

    .....I also went to the -20mm, sport exhaust, etc. but I'll still have to wait until july.....I feel death every single day!.....In any case, also feeling really very happy to see yours..........(your colour is making me doubting about my choice so, so much!) Thaks a lot for the pics!

    Please.........give us your driving impressions!!!!

    Thanks a lot for such nice pics once again

    Paco

    Re: 997S First contact -pics

    congratulations carlos!! I wish I had PSE!!! it looks so good with it vs the standard exhaust tips enjoy it man!!

    Re: 997S First contact -pics


    Looks fantastic. I think that black looks better when it is a little overcast or cloudy as opposed to bright sunshine - has that slick look. Hope you find many miles of open road to enjoy it to the full!
