Default I am OUT...

Well guys, decided today that I am selling my car back to Porsche. I spoke with Andrea this afternoon and initiated the paperwork. As everyone here, I have been trying to be positive and wait. I constantly walk around the car in the garage, move it to get other cars out and I am done. I bought a McLaren a few weeks ago and love it and today just pulled a trigger on another Underground TT LP560. I want to have cars that I can enjoy when I want and not be scared just to start it to move it. I hope to be back in another GT3 later. I am still on the list for a GT3RS so we will see.

Good luck to all of you that are in the same situation!

SW

BTW, I am looking for a 2007-2008 Cayman S 6spd. I want a nice low mileage car. Going to convert it to run H class in PCA..

Congrats on the decision and moving on. Did you buy a used 12C or a new 650S? I recently drove a 12C and walked away stunned by the car. Very impressive machine!

Why not take the money and sell after delivery? Should be an easy sell especially with an additional year warranty.

I don't want the car anymore, makes me sick to my stomach looking at it just sitting there.. I also have a feeling that whenever anyone asks, it that a '14 or a '15, the '14 will always have a bad stigma..

Congrats on the decision and moving on. Did you buy a used 12C or a new 650S? I recently drove a 12C and walked away stunned by the car. Very impressive machine!

Thanks, I picked up a 12C loaded up. I lowered it, full clear bra & tint and have some HRE's coming..

Stunning looking car is white. Some of the darker colors does not do it service.

Saw Burgundy 12C Spyder on the street today. Yours looks better. Nice choice.

It's a gorgeous car for sure and like the GT3, is pretty in white. I think I have gotten so attached to my GT3 that it saddens me when enthusiasts like you sell theirs back

I would have done same think, SW. I am also in the market for a 12C. I was very impressed after driving one a couple times.

The wheel gap is very bad stock. I was afraid to muck with the complex suspension on the 12C. Looks like you had no problems? What springs and performance is unaffected? Beautiful

Almost 2 years now with my 12c. It's my daily and my track car. Super fast on street and track, super reliable, and comfortable. Nothing breaks, nothing squeaks. Best car I have owned. Bad stuff: nav totally sucks. Looking forward to the free 650s upgrades to us 12c owners that will be given next month.

Congrats, I love what you did. The white looks so nice on 12C. Hope PAG is reading. They lost their best customers. Big corp mentality, give them $2K a month and a1yr warranty. They clearly dont know their client base for GT3. They are in another planet
