    RC is right!

    Truly best daily driver when fun,performance and any weather capability is needed in just one complete package.

    I see no need for the F12 anymore,cancelled the order,my 458 was the last Ferrari I owned,seems likely.....Picture%20023.jpgPicture%20024.jpgPicture%20025.jpgPicture%20026.jpg

    Congratulations, the car looks amazing. Smiley This was actually my first choice (white with the black/Carrera red interior) but my wife has a white car, so we wanted to be slightly different, also was afraid of dirt showing up too fast. I almost changed my order to white, really good choice. Smiley

    The F12 is an amazing product from Ferrari but not really suitable as a daily driver, especially in regions with bad weather (rain and snow). I just wish Porsche would offer a similar good exhaust sound for the new Turbo S but maybe it helps not to attract as much attention as a F12 would (which for ME, is a good thing).

    I would have gone with White. Glad that somebody provided an alternative to argue against  angry

    Sadly, I have to let you guys and gals here know what happened to me a week ago on Sunday afternoon.

    While on my way from the office (some late work I had to get done) going home,enjoying the car and marveling about how excellent the car behaved in heavy falling snow,was hit by an old pick-up truck.

    The front left side is heavily damaged,had multiple airbag deployments,since he pushed the car against the concrete curbs and a light pole,there is damage everywhere and significant damage to suspension.

    All 4 wheels are destroyed.

    I did not sustain any injuries to speak off ,just lots of airbag rash and badly bruised shins from the knee bag that exploded right into them.

    Worst thing is,although the guy got a reckless driving ticket,his insurance is the absolute minimum required in Illinois,$25K.

    Since I had "underinsured driver" coverage my insurance is handling it.

    Now waiting for their decision if the car is declared "total loss" or if they decide to rebuild it.

    Either way, I am not going to keep it, car is "broken and raped" for me,total loss would be best otherwise I will sell the wreck as is to try to salvage as much as possible from the purchase price.

    Car had only 500 miles.........

    RC, I remember you reported rattling sound coming from your glass sunroof and it went away on its own.  Did it ever come back?  I'm hearing rattle from the metal sunroof and a bit from the driver side B pillar.  Needless to say this is extremely annoying, especially from a $200k+ car.


    Re: 991 Turbo S - Short Driving Report (owner) Thread Closed

    I'm deeply sadden about your car, but be glad you got out with only minor scratches.  If the car is considered totaled by the insurance, do you get full replacement cost of the car?


    Re: 991 Turbo S - Short Driving Report (owner) Thread Closed

    Just awful! Very sad to hear this.


    Re: 991 Turbo S - Short Driving Report (owner) Thread Closed

    Sorry to hear this. Your car is brand new, insurance should give you a new one without question. 


    Re: 991 Turbo S - Short Driving Report (owner) Thread Closed

    Sorry to hear that! Hope your insurance picks up the costs and look forward to hearing your repurchase story.

    Smiley Oh boy, I feel so sorry for you, you cannot even imagine. Smiley I am glad to hear that you got out of this horrible incident without any serious injuries but of course this is no consolation for the completely destroyed car.

    I hope the insurance agrees to give you a new one, 500 miles and such a damage...I wouldn't accept a repair ever and if they insist, I wouldn't keep that car. 

    Keep us updated but again, I am glad you are OK and this is what counts most, right? Smiley Smiley

    Speaking of snow: I was in Austria this weekend and after it started snowing and the streets were covered in snow, I took the car out for a spin to see how it handles in serious snow. After only a few minutes, a car on the opposite lane came sliding towards me (he was breaking too hard but not hard enough for the ABS to kick in and apparently lost control) and he almost hit me, I was able to "avoid" him because he slid pretty slow towards me and I was able to accelerate and had some free space on the right. After that, I returned to the hotel, I had no fun anymore in driving in snow.

    Again...so sorry about what happened. Smiley

    Sorry guys but I have to close this thread down because there was a glitch in our database structure and this thread kind of started by itself from another thread. Sorry about that.
