Welcome to the club, I have had a c4s gen 1 and now have a very late c2s gen 1. I actually prefer driving the c2s to the c4s, you get a much better feel for the car. I still have a smile like an excited child at Christmas everytine I drive it. 
 
Enjoy it.

Hi All
 
I’m new to the club having recently acquired my first Porsche.
 
About 12 months ago I decided to make a lifelong dream a reality, so the saving and search for a 911 began.  I wanted a car to keep and that I would enjoy driving for years to come; my daily drivers have been autos for some time, but my Porsche had to be manual.  And while I was at it, a convertible would be fun!
 
An early to mid 2000s manual convertible certainly narrowed the field, but I still had to decide on model, trim, spec - I had accepted I may have limited choice when it came to the colour.  However, in the end, it was colour that made my decision for me. Once I saw a manual speed yellow 997.1 Carrera S cabriolet for sale I knew I had found my car.
 
The car is great fun, I look forward to every opportunity to take it for a spin and expect this will include numerous club events
 
I attach below a photo of the car, taken between rain showers during this weekend's drive around the mountains of North Wales
 
Cheers
Geoff

Hi Guys
Although not a new member, I am a ‘Newbie’ owner of a 911 C2S. I previously owned a Cayman S and missed the Porsche experience when I stupidly defected to BMW ! However i’m Now back with a super ‘06 911 and thoroughly enjoying the experience.
Look forward to meeting fellow 997 owners. Any living in and around the Towcester area ?

Greetings all.
I have just moved over from the 930 Turbo forum. Since selling my lovely old Targa Turbo i have now just picked up a 2008, 997.1 Turbo Cabriolet.
Wow what a beast, the 930 was awesome but this Turbo takes it to another level.  Can't wait to get some serious  miles covered.
 
Regards
 
TIM

Here's my first attempt at posting an image. It's never as simple as it should be. (It worked on the second attempt!).
 

 
 
If it's worked, then you will see my car as I was using launch control for the first time. This was taken at the old Chimay race track in Belgium on a recent trip to Spa.

Hi Nigel, your car looks great - I always like the flash of a red seat belt on a black 997

Hi,
Just become a member.
I love cars and do regular track days with my Mx5 Turbo.
I have owned a 968 Cab before but now a 997 Gen2 4S as shown in picture.
Love it to bits but a little noisy in the cabin,probably due to the 305 tyres on the back
