     981S comes with a Sport button already.

    Off enjoying my car...

    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    I've ordered 981s as manual too.

    Here is Korea... 

    It takes almost 2 or 3 months from order to delivery.

    The time makes me crazy...and now i'm googling for 981 GT silver and carrara red top and int.


    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    landed at the OPC ..

    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    Beautiful car!  

    My 981 S also arrived at the dealer today... Carrara White, but with black top and interior, so we're both pretty close to delivery! devil

    @ Kelderek: welcome to Rennteam and many congrats on your new Porsche Smiley Seems that  White is quite popular with the 981 - the wait is killing me Smiley

    sfo, when I first saw the 981, my perfect colour choice was white with yachting blue & blue soft top, but I now concur with your colour choice, looks really classy! Many congratulations and look forward to seeing more photos once you've taken delivery.

    Yes, looks like it is! I have seen quite a few at other forums showing 981 specs with White!


    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    The 19' wheels look good on white. I ordered them on silver sight unseen, hoping they look as good.


    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

     

    picked it up today ...

    my front wheel arch sills are OK.

    however, the offside front bumper is badly misaligned:









    AND, I have "Boxster S" on the passenger kick plate, and "Boxster" on the driver's side kick plate!!@@!!

    Deeply unimpressed!

    Some pics 















    First impressions:
    1. 19" wheels and no PASM is absolutely fine. ride quality is stunning. firm yet utterly compliant.
    2. BOSE is excellent
    3. steering is unbelievably accurate
    4. exhaust is pretty good without PSE
    5. cornering is mind bending .. literally, as yes, a cliche, but, on rails
    6. manual gearbox is very similar in feel to 991 7 speed .. I find it too light, not enough effort to push.

    Good night!
     

     


    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    Wow! Smiley Fantastic looking car. The red interior and top are stunning together with the white body. Enjoy! Smiley

    You are joking?! Smiley That is beyond embarrassing for Porsche.

    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    Beautiful car!

    I just got my white 981 S as well (but with black interior), I'll post some pics later!


    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    wow looks stunning your new Boxster (S) broken heart Hope Porsche fixes those unusual production errors for you.

    It looks stunning on the road, a mini supercar kiss


    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    Really beautiful! I dare not show these photos to SWMBO - she would be on the phone to a friendly Porsche dealer first thing in the morning and our 997 would be history whilst she waited for a new Boxster to arrive ! indecision But what are Porsche thinking about? Misaligned front bumper? Wrong kick plate?  Seems like the factory are rushing these cars out to meet demand, but at the prices charged it's unforgivable!!

    Any chance of some interior photos please?

    sfo, beautiful car.

    6. manual gearbox is very similar in feel to 991 7 speed .. I find it too light, not enough effort to push.

    Do you mean the clutch pedal is too light?


    Re: Goodbye RS60 Spyder ... Hello 981S

    Stunning, I love the 981.

    First time i see the stock 19" wheels on a real car. They look by far better than in the configurator. So I will save the money for the 20". I like the wheels and of course the hole car.

    I agree. With 19" you get a better ride and of course tyres will be cheaper come replacement. Smiley

    thanks.

    the gear shift lever is too light, clutch pedal feels very similar to 987

    Wait for the short shifter to come out then retrofit it. Much better than standard if the 987 was anything to go by! Smiley
