Talking Just bought the new Porsche 991

Well I gave up on getting a PUMA since it takes too long. So I got the new 991 that just came out last Saturday. Got it for about 120 with taxes in rare Agate grey (Most 991s are in white, black or silver). Got it with PDK & launch control so it goes 0-60 in 3.8 seconds. 400 horsepower, top speed of 188. Yeah its not a PUMA 110 but it certainly goes a hell of a lot faster. Took these pics right before they took it off the showroom floor last nite. Had 14 miles on the clock. They didn't let anyone test drive it thank god. Looks a lot better than the 997/996/993 if you ask me.

Good choice on the 911. In LA you will really stand out.

Hey Neil, looks nice. I just got the 997.2 C4S cab in November. I hear the 991’s drive very nice.
I can’t get enough of mine. It’s a sick car. Please let me know how the “symposer” sounds. Supposedly, this new 991 is more like a “Grand Touring” Porsche and they made it so refined that they had to pipe the engine noise back into the cabin. I’m pretty curious about this. I also heard that BMW is actually going to have artificial engine noise pumped through the speakers.
Great choice of a car, I believe Porsche is where it’s at. It’s all about performance, and you don’t look like you are trying to overcompensate for anything.

Nice, very nice indeed. A 110 would look better.

There is no substitute.

Weren't you also looking at a panamera? I'd go 911 too but why did you decide get the 911 over the panamera?

You bought a 991 instead of the RS4.0 parked right next to it?

I think you bought the wrong car.
