Car was being prepped for delivery. Looks fantastic. Some lucky guy is probably picking this up today.

Interesting...it has a painted exterior wart and painted nipples. Two things we were not sure of occurring in the US.

Not surprised by the painted headlight washers. However the roof antenna is surprising. Why would they do that versus have the antenna in the window glass like on the other cars.

All the 991s have that awful painted external antenna (nav).

I think that's just the sat radio antenna. The GPS antenna is up by the windshield. Look at the European cars, they have nav and no roof wart. Totally sucks. And no option to delete.

no painted headlight washers for PTS orders. It's interesting that some people were being told the headlight washers were being deleted for US cars.

It's SiriusXM's antenna, I thought there would be an option to exclude the satellite radio from the order but it seems like you can't

Looks awesome except for those intakes on the rear deck. Those are hideous. Reason alone to go Touring. Porsche couldn't do something better than just slapping two huge black plastic pieces on the deck lid? Did they spend more than an afternoon on the design of that?

Have to agree. I prefer the front end of the .1 also

Agree those did look really cheap. They should at least have painted them black.

One reason I ordered a darker color (Agate Grey) is that those scoops don't look as tacked onto a darker color.

Agree. I'm going to paint my intakes back to body color. (Along with the wing endplates and lower mirrors)
