    This wheel looks amazing. SmileySmiley Like frozen motion blur.. I would like it all matte silver tho.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    A correction to my earlier post about rear lettering options.  There are only three options now available:

    1. Leave as is with Porsche block lettering, 911 and Carrera S (or Carrera).

    2. Block lettering with 911 under it in the middle.  It is not possible now to have block lettering and Carrera lettering without 911.

    3.  Block lettering alone.

    On another issue, when the aerokit option becomes available next year, a spoiler  will extend above the duck tail spoiler which remains fixed.  The duck tail does not rise.

     Wow!  The unpainted wheels remind me of the Porsche Fuchs but look so different when painted.

     Thanks Carrara 


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    The car is larger  now , which allows one  to stow the Boom Box above the engine !

     

     


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    New 911 looks beautiful, but huge. Perhaps too big for me.

    Agreed, almost like a cross between the Panamera and Carrera.....Panarrera! 


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    I think, now the propotions and the size of 911 is just perfect. Porsche did great job by decreasing the weight about 40 kg and it is even better. I didn't like my 997.1 at all. I quite like the 997.2. Now I very much like the 991.

    Interesting how they fudged the 996... Which is a pity as it's a good car undeserving of it's reputation and Porsche shouldn't shrink from it..

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Have seen the car yesterday. The car does, at least to me, look bigger than the previous generations. Interior is very nice, the base of the windscreen has moved forward a bit which gives more depth to the dashboard and provides a more spacious feel. Legroom is definitely improved, according to the technician they moved the pedals forward, and in a proper driving position I found discernible legroom in the back (compared to the 997). Did not try the backseats but headroom would be definitely an issue.

    Cannot share the resentment about the interior, most of the parts have a very good feel to it. The switches on the centreconsole are certainly a matter of taste, not necessarily the very best solution. The switch for the sunroof is another ingenious strike á la PDK puddles, but the size of the roof might make up for it. Manual gearbox did not appear to be shifting as smooth as the one in the 997 but that might be a matter of calibration and not an issue on the production models. Standard steering wheel is very cheap looking so, at least in my opinion, ordering the SportDesign  wheel is almost immanent. The backside of the sportseat "plus" option is painted in silver colour and blend in better than the previous sportseats´ backrests in volcano silver.

    The ducktail spoiler looks very good in reality, it is still a subject of preference but far more elegant and integrated than the pictures might suggest. The SportDesign bumper makes a difference as well, especially in the context of my above comment about the car´s frontend.Both items do make a difference to the car but do not go as far as the previous or upcoming aerokits.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    I would definitely opted for painted mirror mounts.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    I like the blue here, it shows off the lines very well. And the chrome trim around he elements looks good, too. I think it has a nice, hot rod look to it that I wasn't expecting. Looks tough and take-charge.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Alot of people have commented over the months about not judging it until you see it in the flesh - Easy and RC perhaps more than most.

    ...Something struck me yesterday when I watched an amateur video clip of the blue car at Frankfurt on youtube: looking at all the pictures up until now, generally taken from mid-car height without people in the shots, you start seeing a big car -  only when I saw the moving picture with the video camera held at normal eye-level, and watched people get in and out of it, did I realise that it's still very much a little 911 sportscar...

    Kinda obvious perhaps to most Rennteamers, but then I don't live with a 911 yet (2 months to go!!), so my perspective suffers from lack of daily familiarity...

    I think it's kind of wierd to have the chrome trim around the side windows but not the front and back.

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Hey Guys, Over here in Lebanon the base price of a Carrera S has gone up 14%, plus the cost of all these new must have options have also gone up. Is it the same in other countries or are we the only ones getting screwed here?

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    The car looks better in real life than in pictures but all my fears about front visibility and the driver's right leg room come true. Both are diminished compared with the 997. The car is now more of a GT than a sport car. I am waiting to drive one now.

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    Pentium, so I can understand your view better, could you define a sports car versus a GT car?

    Re: Ladies and gentlemen, the new 991...

    It would be nicer to have the trim in Aluminium/satin finish, like in earlier Cayenne.
