    Back to Porsche 911 after absence of 10 years

    After being away from Porsche for 10 year I decided to buy a 991 Cab at Champion Porsche since I spend most of my time in South Florida.

    I am very much surprised and impressed by the 991.

    Wow what a drive with the PDK and the build quality is much better then before.

    Yes...its not a purist 911 anymore.......but its much more then ever before.

    The drive with the roof open is fabulous .....no wind....and so much fun.

    The sit is still the 911 sit from the old days.

    I never expected to be back but since I am back I realized how much I missed it.

     

    A happy reentry Porsche driver!!

    Re: Back to Porsche 911 after absence of 10 years

    Since the car is driving in South Florida where the radar detectors are legal I decided to buy one.

    After research on internet I decided to buy the Valentine One.

    Many internet specialist said not the buy the old school V1.

    After receiving the V1 I drove around and after 5 minutes it drove me crazy...only beebs all the time.

    I called Valentine Customer support but that was not much of ahelp at all.

    So I searched on YouTube and found a nice video what to progam the V1....and now the V1 works great...almost no false warnings anymore and he picks up the police radar without any problem.

    I am happy I bought the V1 after all !!!!!!!

     

    BTW I use the V1 on my visor and not on the back mirror. On the back mirror its to much visible from outside and I have to remove it all the time against stealing.

    You could have just asked here, Mr Valentine himself is a member :)

    It was so much fun...I bought the car at a long time Rennteam member who works at Champion Porsche in Pompano Beach. I know him since 2003 when i gave him a lot of info about the new Cayenne at that time because i was one of the first owners.

    I was actually enjoying much more the look of that fine G63 on the left...  With kids and a shoe maniac wife, this is the perfect car.

    Oh yes - just played around last night with the configuratior Smiley

    I'm so turned on by this car. The G500 sounds like a great package. I just would need to change those bumpers to the AMG bumpers (they make the look of the car). I would not need the G63 power. Half a year to go before I need to make a decision how to succeed with the family monster. The G sounds like an emotional candidate. 

     


    Re: Back to Porsche 911 after absence of 10 years

    The G500 (G550 in the US) is actually equally satisfying but of course the G63 offers that extra punch and it sounds a tiny bit better than the G500 (though not much).

    However, the G500 is also pretty expensive (new or used), so it makes for sense to get a slightly used G63 with low mileage. Most G63 are sold for around 120k in Germany, which is still quite a lot.

    I could have gotten a G55 for 80k two years ago, only 7k km...good offer but as always, you can't have it all. 

    As soon as my SRT goes away in early 2017, I will make a decision if I get the G63 or not. Depends on the prices by that time, this truck is really in high demand. yes Or I get the SRT successor with Hellcat engine but considering my experience with the SRT, I'm not so sure about it. Wonderful car but the dealer is too far away and every tiny issue is annoying and there are lots of tiny issues. The car is reliable and fun but I kind of think this was my last US SUV. Unless they succeed to raise quality. Even the little things are important.
