    My 2011 911 Turbo S Comes Today!

    Hi,
    I had an order in for a 2011 911 Carrera GTS Cab for a January build but changed my mind and went for the 2011 911 Turbo S that was in stock at the same dealer that has my GTS order.  Anyway, it comes today and I'm EXCITED!  Here's the URL at the dealer and maybe a pic or two, more after it arrives.

     Congrats ! 


    Re: My 2011 911 Turbo S Comes Today!

    Don't think you will regret that choice!  Congratulations, and yes, mandatory driving report and more photos please!!


    Re: My 2011 911 Turbo S Comes Today!

    Thanks everyone.  I'll have a driving update as the weather improves and some pics.  New car got here around 3 this afternoon in a rain storm so after signing all the paperwork and saying thanks to the nice fellow who brought it to me I went in the garage and dried it off good.  By then it was dark and still raining so I'm busy reading the manual to discover all what's new and different on a 911 Turbo.  I've owned two 911 Carreras since 2006 but never a Turbo.

    I hope I don't post too many pics from my drive this afternoon up on the Blue Ridge Parkway but you folks did ask soooooooooo, here they come.  It was sunny and 65 at my house, elevation approx, 2,400', and 47 up on the Parkway!  These are top down pics and I went today because top down days are numbered until Spring.
    Enjoy,
    Don

    You can see the Devil in the upper right; he's reclining, big head and beard, leading to a full belly.  Lore is that he surveys his courtyard below where he pronounces judgment over souls.

    Driving Impressions - First Day 

    Car arrived yesterday late afternoon so didn't get a chance to drive her until today. Picked up a neighbor this morning and we went to town for coffee. I thought the Turbo S had a firmer ride that my 2009 Carrera 911 Coupe that I traded in for it. My neighbor disagreed and felt no difference but I'm pretty sure the Turbo S has a tighter suspension even in "Normal" mode.
    True confessions - I'm not Stig. Far from it. I'm 65 years old and require glasses for driving and reading. In my defense, I did race go-carts on a track as a teenager. I raced both the slower go-carts with (Clinton A490 red engines and also those with louder and faster yellow McCullough chain saw engines). And I did get a speeding ticket in my 2006 Carrera C4. So temper my driving impressions today against the above.
    The ride in "Normal" mode is not harsh by any means and if I'm correct that it is firmer, it's only slightly so. I'm not going to floor the Turbo S or redline it until I feel it has enough miles on it to be suitably broken in. I realize some people (even from Porsche) say to drive them like you stole them but I'm going to err on the cautious side. It will be hard but I will probably wait until it has 500 to 750 miles before I get crazy.
    Maybe.
    It's a climb from where I live (2,400' elevation) to the Blue Ridge Parkway (elevations between 5,000 and 6,000') and I pressed the Sport button on the way up. Impressive! Car's personality changed. Engine growled louder (in a most appealing way), suspension tightened but not in a bad way, handling was more precise, and car seemed like it "hunkers" down as soon as the Sport button is pressed. Sorry but I did not try Sport Plus today. I like to save some things for "the next time".
    I have always loved the brakes on Porsches; strong, secure, they make you a better driver and save your hide. This car is my first PCCB experience and all I can say is WOW! I think I fell in love with them on the way to town this morning and after my drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway I asked them to marry me. It's like OH MY GOD are these brakes great or what? They are amazing.

    The whole driving experience today was pretty amazing. I think the GTS I had on order would have been a great car for me and I especially liked the "clean" lines. I'd gotten away from wanting a Turbo because of all the slits and air ducts and openings; it just looked cluttered to me. After spending some time with the (tame) beast today I have to say, those slits and ducts and openings are looking pretty good!  I'm thinking of the Turbo S as Rococo art!
    :)
