Also re interior - everything is personal and super subjective but maybe consider changing the steering wheel / seat centers to black - it will then be a little like a CGT with a Black and Ascot brown interior - I think for very little expense this might really help and if not you can keep going - None of my business but I thought this might help.



Nice idea and thanks for taking the time to share it.

Right now I am going to enjoy the car and quite likely add a new set of wheels.

Congrats on your purchase - will be interesting to see how the steering feel / chassis of the 992 GT3 (with its front end wishbones, etc) compares to the 675 LT, which IMHO, has the best steering / driver feel of any road car I’ve owned.

Enjoy smile
Thank you very much.

I am a long standing Porsche GT guy and that 4.0 with comfort seats (for my back and so I can possibly add rear seats down the line), a 6 speed and a jcr exhaust will be tough to beat.

A top down 675lt might just be the perfect stable mate with a very different driving experience.

Lovely! Looking forward to more pics.

AB is an absolute gentleman and I cannot recommend him enough.
I requested a few personalizations that he bent over backwards to undertake and make collection day for myself and my daughter an absolute joy.

Jeez, you're wheels look a nightmare to clean, love the car colour though. Never lose that in a car park

All my other cars are black, so this one is a tad different!

Regards the wheels, they actually very seldom look dirty; the faces are all 'liquid chrome' and the rest of the wheel is a matt black to match the carbon, so coupled with no brake dust from the ceramics they always look really clean.

However, on that note, they are very easy to clean due to the matt black finish.

My 600's black, nightmare to keep looking pristine but fab when it is. I hope you're new RR isn't black too eek

Yup...thats why I love black.

However, have actually ordered the RR in Velocity Blue with black roof, the SVR colours just to try something else.

Who knows when that shall turn up.

Breaking the mould also of over 20 yrs of black AMG's; hopefully all shall be good.

Any word on yours yet?

As our resident Porsche expert, need some advice.

Ordering a 992 turbo s cab in the next week or so; what would you say are must haves?

Looking like a year Dec delivery so should be a 992.2 version.

Collecting next week, likely Thursday or Friday. Super excited.

Congrats on the Turbo S. I haven't driven this generation but understand it is more a GT product than ever.l, which is a great thing.

Options wise I am not an expert for this specific model, but generally ceramics, front lift and sports exhaust. Going very options heavy isn't good for resale but some of the gadgetry on it is really cool.

Enjoy her in good health.

Work permitting, yes. I was hoping to stay a night in St Andrews and then drive down.
