First post - First 911

Hello all.
As per the title this is my first post as I will soon be the owner of a 992 Carrera S!
The car is a recently registered dealer demo (less than 2 weeks old) with just 77 miles on the clock. I am coming out of a 2017 Audi S5 Coupe so am just a little anxious about moving to a rwd car. In fact I have spent the past 9 years in Audi S cars (S4 to S3 to S5) so I will have to learn to drive again.....  But I always felt that if I was fortunate enough to own a 911 I should at least give the C2S a go. 

The car I have purchased is in my opinion a good balance of spec vs price - there are a couple of options I would not have chosen if I was making a factory order, like cooled seats and Alcantara roof lining, but that was more down to getting the right balance between spec and budget. However, in every other respect the spec is where I wanted it to be.  As it was pre registered the price was ~ 10% under new and a good £3-4k less than similar spec cars on the Porsche used site. As far as I can determine I get all of the benefits of a new car, inc the Porsche experience day.

I had spoken with a couple of Porsche dealers about placing a factory order, but even though I was ready to place a deposit, there were no discounts on offer. In general I was politely advised that whilst this was common place for brands like Audi and Mercedes, it was not something they were interested in even though this time of year is traditionally a good time to buy as dealers tend to need to hit Q4/year end targets.  I suppose that doesn’t apply in the 911 world.

I am sure that you will love your new 992 C2S, they are just great examples of the 911 story. Pleased that you were able to secure a good deal on the ex-demo as well, always nice to get a deal isn’t it. 😄

It’s due to arrive next Wednesday and will go straight off to the Detailers for a spruce up and some ceramic protection. Will post pics as soon as I get the chance. Here is the Porsche Code for the spec....
