    Walked into dealer for a chat, walked out with new C4S

    I sold my 09 C2S Cab last year intending to replace it w/ a 991 GT3, but for many reasons I decided it was not the right car for my needs. In any case, I had been Porsche-less and was uncertain about what to go with next.  Visited the dealer this weekend and found this racing yellow C4S on the showroom floor.  It's a lot more "over the top" than I am in the habit of ordering, but the lease was extremely attractive and there is always the rush of instant gratification! My wife encouraged me to break out of my comfort zone, and my wife is always right! Smiley There are so many excellent postings on the 991 variants here on Rennteam there is little for me to add.  I think the steering is weighted well, certainly not numb by any means, perhaps less tactile than the 997. The car is remarkably neutral in the curves (SPASM), and goes where you point it. The new AWD system is remarkably agile in its responsiveness, the car generally in RWD mode. The engine with PSE is really a delight and much more entertaining than my 997 PSE, particularly on downshift/deceleration.  Survival through adaptation to a changing environment is the definition of evolution, and the 991 version of the 911 clearly demonstrates.

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate the positive reactions.  Rennteam is the only Porsche forum I post on,  and I respect the opinons here a lot.  You are so right RC!! My wife told me we are surrounded by bright green and orange Lamborghinis and red Ferraris so a yellow Porsche will fit right in.

    I usually do the same (deciding fast) because a certain itch starts when I see a certain car and...wham...it is done.

    Luckily I resisted this urge when I saw a F12 at a dealer and took it for a test-drive. The dealer wanted to "get rid" and he even offered to put red plates on it if I take it (suggesting that I can take it home, I just have to sign the contract). I think I already told the story here in the forum, I was there with a friend who knows the owner of the dealership very well and apparently this was a customer car which wasn't picked up (paid) in time and the dealer needed the money fast. It was so tempting but my senses came back fast after the test-drive: I imagined my wife telling me with a furious face that she wants a divorce, so the temptation for the F12 was over pretty fast. Smiley Smiley

    Saw a flashy green (no clue how this color is called but it looked amazing and I hate green colors) on a Lamborghini Gallardo Spider in Miami, it looked really jaw dropping. My daughter loved a Bentley Continental GT Cabriolet in some sort of pastel baby blue color, very nice but not really for the man who was sitting in it (maybe it was his wife's car Smiley).

    I love spontaneous, unexpected deals!

    WOW - gorgeous color, car looks amazing. Enjoy it! 


    Re: Walked into dealer for a chat, walked out with new C4S

    Congrats on the car. I'm sure you will love it. wink


    Re: Walked into dealer for a chat, walked out with new C4S

    It was certainly unexpected and spontaneous. Very different from ordering a car and going over every options and detail, and then waiting months in anticipation. I saw the car in the showroom, I sat in the car, walked around the car, drove the car, and then there I was signing papers!!   It's an experience that's hard to articulate. In a sense it has been somewhat liberating since I didn't pour over every detail, I leased the car which is more akin to dating than marriage, and its immediately in my possession.

    Actually, I love this kind of experience much more than ordering the car and having to wait for it.  Smiley Unfortunately dealer cars often lack some mandatory options but in your case, you see to have been lucky.

    Happy Driving

    Re: Walked into dealer for a chat, walked out with new C4S

    Walked last Sunday into my local Mercedes dealership, almost got out with a G63 AMG (dealer car, attractive price tag). My wife was luckily with me, she put some sense into me. We need a larger SUV aprox. twice a year, when we go skiing for a longer period of time (5-7 days). It didn't make sense to get rid of the Cayenne and now get a G63. Her X3 really sucks but like she said, for twice a year, it should do just fine.

    The temptation was high because I always loved the G class and the G63 is really a classic, something you can drive even in 10 years without the feel of it being old. I would have bought it but it really didn't make sense. Also my wife hates how it looks, she would have never driven it. The sales person turned on the engine...wow...what a sound. Smiley

    As you can see, the itch is always with me...like a dark force luring under the skin, waiting to be unleashed. angry

    From now on, I will never set a foot into a car dealership (other than Porsche) without my wife. indecision Too risky. yes indecision

    Re: Walked into dealer for a chat, walked out with new C4S

    I've always loved the G myself. My wife has nipped many an automotive bud before it could bloom.  She still got her way this time, since the C4S was far preferable to her than a GT3!!  A 97 year old patient once told me the secret to a happy life was just two words: "Yes, dear".

    Just thought I'd post a picture of the voluptuous C4S rear now that the tips have been ceramic coated and the chrome badging removed.  The PORSCHE lettering is the flat black from the GT3.  Wife's 08 Boxster LE is off the the side.  photo (4).JPG
