Agate Rules.
Even better with Sport Classics and black/garnet interior.

But, some of us are biased.

I've been looking at possibly the black set for my summer wheels... thanks for sharing those pictures. I can't seem to find any other wheels i really like. many are just too busy for me.

hi all, I'm new to Porsche community and am currently searching for a 2015/2016 Turbo S. I've noticed the tail lights are sometimes clear/white, was this a factory option?

Cheers

I traded because I wanted to get an AWD 911 which would do better in the winter around here (already have seen a big improvement), and while i was considering ordering a new C4S or even a GTS4, the dealership had a beautiful 991 Turbo on hand with just over seven thousand miles on it for less than my new build was going to cost, so I jumped on it instead. really happy i did. Love this car. has a lot of nice internal features i wasn't planning on paying extra for, but am happy i have them now. I absolutely love how the black over red full leather interior looks when mated with the carbon fiber package. My winter tires show up tomorrow, car is scratch-less so i have tint and a paint sealant all happening next week. Then i should be good to go for a while. So far, i can tell she has lots of power, but i haven't really given it a go. up till about 4,000 RPM, it fells pretty similar to my 991.2 base. I'm planning on heading over to the PCA Porsche Parade this year at the lakes in MO, so maybe I'll see some of you there. I've only been into Porsches for about 5 years now, but this is already my 5th one. Went from a 987 base Cayman (loved that car, should never have sold it) to a 981 Cayman S (kept only 4 months), to a 991.2 base to this Trubo (which i plan on keeping a long time), also have a Macan S for my wife, a really great vehicle as well.




nice car wonderful interior

Better pic. Having the windows tinted and some paint/correction/sealant work done later this week, so should be about as perfect as it can get after that.
