    New 991 in the house

    Probably the fasted buy I ever did. As having been at the beach on vacation my wife started nagging that she doesn’t like to drive the 997 hand-shift to much. So I took my iPad and started surfing and found a new 991 sitting at a dealer show-room waiting for a buyer. First picture gave that "that’s mine feeling". I was sending an email and asked for a quote of my current car. Some hours later he replied and made a fair offer which I instantly accepted. 

    Even my heart was bleeding letting my beloved 997 with that insane noise go I took over the 991 last week - 2 days after our vacation. So I have the car now driven 600 miles and I have to say it feels grown up. Maybe the car is too perfect as it feels almost down-washed compared to the 997. Also – as written in the other thread the PSE seems to have a problem as it almost is not to hear a difference between on and off – will check with the Dealer.

    Why a Coupe instead of a Convertible - kind of easy, having a 3 year old daughter. She even nagged on short trips to the city when sitting in the rear. In the Coupe she is fine and enjoys the ride. The seats are bended to the rear and not to the front as in the Convertible. Also - I have a very special convertible on order (later more), so I don’t need the Carrera being one.

    The car is well equipped - more or less all I would have ordered anyway. The deal was good - so there was no way to say no. By the way - the rims I have coated matt grey, matching the platinum-grey interior.

    congrats !!! Love the color kiss


    Re: New 991 in the house

    Congratulations, love the color too. Very elegant but also sporty with the gun metal grey wheels. Nice impulse purchase. My wife complains about our 993 and  997 but I have been sort of deaf so far indecision

    Congrats, perfect choice wink Enjoy her in good health with the family.

    Last weekend, while driving my 458 after my Porsche showroom visit, I was thinking that when I have a child around 3 years old, it might be better to have a 911 instead of 458. (well that thought has gone soon later, but it strikes me once angry.)

    Re: New 991 in the house

    Very nice Lars ! I always like seeing a blue 911, they look so sleek and ¨liquid¨ and as mentioned above very cool license plate, specially since you have the PORSCHE lettering only at the back, a very nice touch, makes the car look much cleaner than with all the letters. 


    Re: New 991 in the house

    Great purchase Lars! Curious as to what that order purchase might be!


    Re: New 991 in the house

    Is that aqua blue?

    Re: New 991 in the house

    Congratulations! Very unique but convincing choice of colours, I especially like those matte-grey rims. Are they painted or coated in Plastidip? 

    I do recall that you were considering different options for your next car, including vintage cars, so I am also very curious to find out about your additional purchase.

    kiss


    Re: New 991 in the house

    Nice car, good choice, great buy.

    Re: New 991 in the house

    Congratulations Lars   The color is great. What a treat to see a blue 911 after all the different shades of grey and black we always see . The rims make it look sportier , which it needs and the lettering display at the back looks better like that .

    I had an impulse buy 3 or 4 week ago... got myself a Harley . If I recon well you bought one one or two years ago. Do you get to drive it ? Not sure I will ride mine very much smiley
