    IT HAS ARRIVED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    All I can say is.........Smiley

     We received the magic phone call yesterday, and today, went directly to the dealer (it was closed due to local holidays of Madrid, but we got the doors open), man, it was a very nice moment, all dealer closed, no customer's, no music, no nothing, just the security guard and us (me and my father)...alone with the various porsche's parked in the subterranean garage.....I got some ideas and brief flashes from the film ¨gone in 60 seconds¨, but suddenly aborted the mission...SmileySmiley

    Anyways, will have the number plates by Thursday/Friday of this week, and therefore have delivery one of those two days....

    I CAN'T WAIT.....

    Pics can't do justice, its probably one of the most beautiful 911 I have ever seen......white looks so so sporty and exclusive.

     Anyways, here are some pics with the factory plastic's.....looks like if the car was going directly to a medical surgery operation..Smiley

    Hey Alex,

    Congrats to you and your father for this special Christmas gift (isn't it a bit early? hehe) Smiley

    I have always thought that "white" would suit the Porsche extremely well.

    Now, when are you getting yourself this Exige? Smiley

    Re: IT HAS ARRIVED !

    Congratulations Alex, so you finally ordered the new one! I am a bit surprised about the options, you left out full leather for a reason?

    Re: IT HAS ARRIVED !

    A beauty - white does endeed suit this car.

    Looking forward to some pics without factory protection stuff in its natural environment.

    Re: IT HAS ARRIVED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Alex I like your car very much, enjoy it!

    I like the fact that the car is not overdone with cosmetic extras. Non-metallic white and plastic dashboard, leather seats, no carbons alu etc. Similar to a 911 of the classic era.

    I also order my cars without the leather dashboard and console because for me good quality plastic pieces ala Mercedes or Porsche look very good, wear better than leather (in fact the older they get the better they look) and you don't worry so much about potential damage or maintenance.

    May I ask why you opted for the 4WD model in Madrid?

    Jealousy thine name is Carrera.

    Re: IT HAS ARRIVED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Alex, I've lost count how many Carrera's have come and gone in your household! Congrats!

    Re: IT HAS ARRIVED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Beautiful car Alex, congrat's! White is a great colour for a Carrera, but I'm glad it's you cleaning it and not me!Smiley

    Re: IT HAS ARRIVED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great car! Many congrats Smiley

    Re: IT HAS ARRIVED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Beautiful car Alex, as 911 is always magnificent in whiteSmiley

    I'm a bit surprised though for not having opted for a 4S option. Any particular reason for this?

    Hey Dirk, thanks for the kind words...all I can is that pics dont do justice...its even better looking !!!!Smiley

     About the leather option, we opted to deleted from the list, just because its expensive price, and because it looks good like (just my opinion though)....

    From my point of view, when ordering a car of this type, I'm looking into ¨raw¨ materials, no need of luxury options, like leather's, wood's, cruise control's, parktronic's, all this stuff.....its just a car for enjoying it about 10 days a month (again this is only our opinion), and when bigger the option list is, bigger is the lost when selling the car...

     Although nearly for the price this car cost, I would have prefered a 997GT3, but again, this was my dad's choice, and it was impossible to change up his mind.

    It's not where you're going, it's how you get there that counts

    reginos, we where going to order a Carrera S PDK or a Carrera 4S PDK.....but since we had to wait about 4months or so....finally decided to have a look to those cars that where coming to the dealer or where available at the rest of the spanish porsche official dealers......so this Carrera 4 appeared, and it was brought to Madrid to have a look....now you know the rest Smiley

     We had something very clear, it should have PDK with sport chrono plus and it should be in white colour...... just to completely change from the other colour's we've had.

    Also the red rear stripe was another motivation for my father, so he finally decided to go for it, instead of a carrera S.

    lol, that's a good question Mike...Smiley....I must do a list since he had his first Porsche...but there has been more than 10....

    I get sometimes shy about this topic to the point that some of my friends dont know nothing about it SmileySmiley....Porsche is a very important factor in our family. Smiley

    thanks for the kind words !!! Smiley, I would have loved my father to specc a GT3, just as yours...but for now, its not in his mind !!! Smiley

     As you may have read above, we first opted for a carrera S or 4S, but since we had to wait some months, we got this carrera 4 that was available inmediately.!!
