As a recent purchaser of a 488GTB I can vouch for them. They are truly great cars and underappreciated ATM which has made them really good value. Your new Black one looks stunning and a great spec..

Congratulations - noticed this car in JZMs inventory and expected it wouldn't hang around long.

Well picked it up today and its absolutely immaculate. First of all the service from JZM Porsche was first class and great attention to detail .. Russ even brought old and new cars around for a photo shot together and little touches like a full tank of fuel were appreciated. Then the car .. wow. Only done 80 miles of motorway driving but know I'm going to love this car. Staying over night near Winchester tonight looking forward to getting back in tomorrow. Thanks Russ

Congrats. Looks great. Is it Nero or Nero Daytona? My somewhat older car is Neto Daytona. It’s always good to see someone going for the less obvious colours than red, especially on a V8.

Its incredibly quick! You have to change up so fast. It does make a turbo noise but I like it.

I've had mine for about three months and agree it shoots through the gears so quickly it can catch you out. Its so fast i can't imagine wanting a faster car in the future. It does 0-100Mph in 5.9secs which is ridiculous.!

I hit the rev limiter a few times before I got used to it.

Congrats, Jonny.

I bet it is night and day compared to the 599? I recently swapped my 599 for a 458 and am .. almost sad to say it .. not looking back!

I got mine in July, put about 1k miles on it already, its blindingly quick. Shifting on manual with the lights flashing on the steering wheel is a lot of fun. Renewing the warranty, not so much!
