    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Apart from your CGT purchase, this might probably be your most desirable move yet. What a car Mike. Any plans to take it to the track?

    Pride: Thanks pride! how are you enjoying your M3?

     

    John: Thanks John!

    Porker: Thanks Porker, definitely. I'll take it to the track when the occasion arises, I use the Superleggera more for that though. I'm a bit weary of tracking a turbocharged car 

     

    Thank you slawekl!

    I'm having good driving fun with the car. It is at 4500 km. I should write an update report.

    Thank you for asking Smiley

    I guess, you cannot find the time to drive yours Smiley

     That's great pride. Yes, you should!

    I do still get a decent amount of time behind the wheel in mine  I don't take as much pictures as I used to though. I really should!

    The moment I read this, I thought of the uncanny coincidence of how so many successful entrepreneurs have either not gone to university or have dropped out of college before graduating. They refuse to play by other people's rules. I guess that's where the element of unreasonableness comes in. And then I thought of moderate, urbane people who have been softened by the process of obtaining multiple degrees. They choose the path of least resistance and think carefully about every aspect of something before making any move but who may end up not making any dramatic difference in the world or to how other people live. I guess it's the old saying that it is men of action not men of words who shape our world.

    But it's equally true to say:

    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Congrats Mike! I'm sure you will be very happy with this car. A GT2RS arrived here on sunday and my boyfriend is one big smile ever since. :-D the options are not exactly the same, but very similar. Some photos here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=240406&id=692352002

    Thanks  

    Profound indeed. 

    The problems arise with those unreasonable men who don't realise that they are not being progressive but just counterproductively obstructive. Smiley

     You are welcome ;) ....of course progress is not consensual :P

    There is also a lot to be said for different degrees and their connection to the real world/industry !

    Lats but not leats thank for the spec mike, look forward for pics and your experience behind the wheel :)

    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Congrats Mike Smileyamamzing stable you got there.The GT2 RS is the only Porsche I would buy in red, it´s simply an amazing color for that car Smiley.

    Re: My GT2 RS...

    That'll look great in red with the red/black interior.

    All my Porsches have been black/black. My last one I really wanted to be different and spec'd it (997 GT2) up in red with full red deviated stitching. Then at the last moment I lost my way, reverted to type and switched it back to black/black.........

    The biggest problem is that dealers really discourage anyone from ordering interesting stuff. My daughter (aged 7) asked me yesterday whilst driving why there were no bright coloured cars. I had to tell her that when I was young people drove cars in bright blue/green/yellow/red etc, but now basically almost all cars are silver/grey/black. When I was last at Porsche we walked the whole production line and almost every car was grey/black/silver.


    Re: My GT2 RS...

     ha: Thanks friend! I hope you are keeping well 

    Anne: Thanks for the kind words Anne, I think your boyfriend's and my car are twins with one or two differences. Great spec 

    electrao: Thanks man, I can't wait!

    J.Seven: Thanks J, I'm out of space as it is lol!

    Guy: I like to have variety in the garage. So if I start to have too much in one colour - I will always alternate to spice things up. It's not an everyday car, so it is okay by me to look a bit crazy  Just do it, you only live once!


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Mike, many congrats!  I wanted one too but my dealer just couldn't get another one.  I think there are 3 coming into my country.  I am onto my second GT3 in a month.  I decided that I want to keep the GT3 for a long time to come so I am switching my clubsport spec for a luxo touring spec one with all the extended leather/alcantara options available.  This frees me up to keep an eye out for one of the GT2 RS coming back on the market in the next couple of years.   So you can tell I am green (red) with envy - in a nice way of course!


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Thanks WAY! I also had to fight for my allocation. I decided quite late and the 4 (now 5 with mine) coming into my country had already been spec'd. So I was quite lucky, they used the CGT as a bargaining tool as well  


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Car is on the ship. Should have it in a few weeks. The wait!!!!

    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Thanks everybody, plenty photos and videos will definitely follow. Only problem is the car arrives while I'm on vacation after receiving the ETA. The earliest time I would be able to get photos would be after New Years

     

    It will have to remain in the dealer's hands for 3 weeks while it awaits for my return. 


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Car arrived at the dealer a week ago. I'm on vacation now so I will only get to see it in person in 2 weeks Smiley 

    Photos the dealer emailed to me.

     


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    Stunning Mike, can't wait to read your review!


    Re: My GT2 RS...

    WOW

    Mike, even for you, the next 2 weeks can't pass by quickly enough

    Enjoy it Mike - and please post plenty of pics, video and sound files
