    My 991 C2S

    I popped along to visit my dealer today to get an update on my C2 cabrio order. I ended up trading in my Evoques, cancelling my cab order and buying these two somewhat brightly coloured cars instead Smiley I'm picking them up on the 1st March.

    New 991C2S 7 speed manual in Racing Yellow. The moment I saw it I knew my cab order was toast Smiley I know yellow is a love it/hate it sort of colour but I've never owned a yellow car before and this just screamed "buy me" when I saw it.

    I'm having the red callipers on the 991 repainted in Racing Yellow as the red really doesn't work against the yellow in mine or the dealer's opinion. He is doing this FOC as part of the deal for me Smiley The Cayman R is a stop gap bit of fun whilst waiting for a new Boxster. I bought it at a very good price so depreciation should be minimal over the next 5 months or so. It is great fun to drive an has a wonderful induction roar as the revs rise.

     

     

     


    Re: My C2S

    Interesting development. indecision

    Nice choices, I wouldn't have gone with manual but PDK instead but as long as you are happy with manual, the car(s) are absolutely great.

    Don't worry about yellow, it actually fits a 911 pretty well if you don't about attracting too much attention.

    Congratulations, can't wait to see more photos of the cars. wink

    Re: My C2S

    I had originally ordered a 7 speed manual C2S but went for PDK when I switched to the cabrio. I'm actually looking forward to having a manual gearbox in this car as I think it will add to the enjoyment.

    Here is the spec.

    Smiley You must be counting down the minutes Thomas. It's been a long wait but I'm sure it will all be worthwhile. I am very much looking forward to hearing how it all goes. I've got around a year to wait for that day with my car.

     


    Re: My C2S

    Seriously Iain you are THE BOSS of car trading and juggling cars. The 991 looks amazing in yellow, and thats a stretch for me since i usually wouldn't go for yellow but on the 991 and with the black wheels it works great. the R is certainly going to be a fun ride. But I thought the other 2 Evoques were dd cars in your house, are the 991 and R going to the the daily ones now? The R might prove to  be a little tough for that. 


    Re: My C2S

    Yes, these will be our daily cars Enmanuel.  The R will be Steph's and she loves it. She doesn't do a lot of miles so should be fine.She finds the seats really comfortable and loves the engine noise so will be more than happy to drive it until she gets a new Boxster.

     

     


    Re: My C2S

    Dream choice Iain!! Awesome pick, the yellow color kiss


    Re: My C2S

    fantastic! seems it was love at first sight! congrats wink

    I'm very much interested in hearing your impressions on the new 7-speed manual gearbox kiss

    Re: My C2S

    Iain,

    are you related to Mike in some way? indecision

    Very nice car, as the others I am very interested in your opinion on the manual gearbox and electric steering. Enjoy the cars!


    Re: My C2S

    Very nice combo !!! Many congrats !!!kiss Please post more pics !! Love it !!!indecision

    Re: My C2S

    That, in my book, is the essence of a really FUN day!

    I've always loved Speed Yellow 911s, looks great. And the  Cayman R should be lots of fun.

    Re: My C2S

    Both cars are utterly superb imo! The Cayman R has that 968 Clubsport magic for me, a future drivers' classic!

    Yellow suits that 991 very well, makes it really stand out! Congrats!

     


    Re: My C2S

    Love it in yellow but couldn't handle driving it in that colour myself. broken heart Congrats on both cars; the Cayman is a blast!

     


    Re: My C2S

    Congrats on a fantastic car! The colour is really great kiss.. The new Racing Yellow is so much more striking than the Speed Yellow on the 997!

    Re: My C2S

    Love the colour, love the black wheels, love the manual, and love the Cayman R.  Two superb choices, and both on the same day.  To paraphrase a world champion: Now that's what I'm talking about!  Enjoy!  Smiley


    Re: My C2S

    Manual too, nice choice! Gorgeous Cayman R as well.

    A yellow 991 is quite tame John. Just wait until I reveal my 458 spider Smiley

    Re: My C2S

    Red, yellow & black - i think they go so well together someone should make it the colours of their flag.

    keep the red calipers  - looks amazing

    Iain - picked up a bit late on this thread (still swooning over the 599 successor). What a relief to see you have ditched the Evoques (must confess I never really got that). Congratulations, and looking forward to photos of the 458 Spider Smiley


    Re: My C2S

    Congrats Iain. Racing yellow C2S is just a wonderful car. kiss

    Curious why you just dropped both of the Evoques? Weren't satisfied?
