Saw this rare spec Maritime Blue 991.2 GTS in Amersham/Beaconsfield the other day. Mega spec - had carbon buckets with Maritime inserts! Think the silver wheels really work too - anyone on here?!



It's a friend of mine, not on here though. Lovely car

More pics please. Congrats. I loved that spec car. Hope you are enjoying the scream near red line
Thanks. In the 2 days that I have had it, it has certainly lived up to the reviews that I had read. The sound is something else.

I purchased it from redline specialist cars (it's still on their website). I'll add some pics from their site, as it's a bit dirty following the drive back to London.

Not sure if this is advertising - if it is sorry.

A friend has just sold his Boxster GTS and bought a 991 C2 so has the following number plate he might sell

AH07GTS (reads : A HOT GTS or AHOY GTS)

After much mulling over the pros and cons I decided to trade in my GTS against a 997.2 GT3.

My 14 month old GTS is for sale here, looks lovely doesn’t it.

This is not SOR, I have no financial interest in this but it’s a good car I would recommend to a fellow PH’er

Nice looking car. It’s a shame they can’t list the options properly....they’re not alone in that though. Soft close doors on a 911 ? Lux Pack ?!

Yes I didn't know it had soft close doors... he he.

Tony was a real gent start to finish bit of a character but straight forward and actually went the extra mile on a couple of items.

My report picked up a few bits some I was keen should be done and others were just comments I was less concerned about.
Tony replaced the front discs and pads without me asking.

What made you choose the 997.2 GT3 vs the 991.2 GTS ?

The GTS was plenty fast enough, comfy and refined but very much a grand tourer.

When we were on hols in Switzerland last year this all came clear to me. My wife asked me if I wanted to be there in the 911 rather than the family wagon. I actually realised that I only wanted to be there in my Boxster Spyder as that would be much more fun.

I have an everyday car and the GTS overlapped with that so much as the perfect daily I really didn't need another one so I thought I have the opportunity to get something more of an event as an occasional toy.

Always wanted a GT3 so then it was which one is the best for me, I decided the gen 2 997 really is the final iteration of the original recipe with a manual so that's the one I settled on. Oh and I wanted to keep the Spyder so a 991.2 manual comfort or Touring was too many £s.
