Default New to the Turbo club

Just introducing myself here. I recently went from a base 991.2 to a 2015 Turbo and just discovered that there is a "991 Turbo" group here. 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.

Agate Grey, if that’s what you’re looking for.

Wow, looks great in that colour. That's one of the two colours I would have ordered if I hadn't found my white car used. Looks great with the red interior too, which I wasn't sure about. The wheels really help the overall look, IMHO

Yes, I'm enjoying it very much. very similar in a lot of ways to my 991.2. Winter tires just came in, so i'm looking forward to year round usage of this baby. I know the S gets most of the love, but i was intentionally looking for a straight Turbo, i prefer the standard 5 lug wheels and bakes. I've never had a car this powerful so I'm already over the moon with it.
