Default Autumn is here, with winter approaching.

With the end of my first driving season almost here I have to say this Guards Red 991.2 TTS has been a joy to drive. A little over 3000 miles on the clock and I haven't had one issue. Engine is strong very fast to be exact. And when you have the car in
sport plus mode and hit the performance button, you almost have to shut the car down after two gear shifts because it just isn't safe. The car is extremely fast that's why I'll probably never tune the car. You can't use all the power that comes
with it stock. Other than that it is a great car with an unparalleled performance bar none. My future mods are changing the tires to Michelins in the spring along with an upgrade to the Europipe exhaust. I loved my past EU exhaust from Stef and I'm sure I'll love the new one he has for the 991.2. It won't be long before I have to garage the car due to snow and ice, but that's life here in New England. My props to those who drive in the winter with snow tires. It just wouldn't be me.

My favorite time of the year to drive a turbo car is on a nice , cold winter morning. Turbos love the dense air and make even more power.

Beautiful pictures and love the aero kit.

This is my first year with The TTS. I picked up some wheels and snow tires and I am going to use the car during the winter at will. In the past I’ve always just driven a little bit during the winter when there was no snow. This year I will use it more.

My car has had winter tires mounted for a few weeks! I had some nice time behind the wheel yesterday. We got five or six inches of snow today, so it stayed in the garage.

What is the "performance" button you speak of in the OP?

Great car with nice touches e.g the wheels and the black wing. Enjoy!

The performance button is the small black button in the center of the Mode Switch. Also called the Sport Response Button. It's like hitting Launch Control while driving. An amazing feature.

Just found out 1-4 inches of snow coming Thursday late afternoon. Question I have for those who do drive in the snow, does this cause unnecessary wear on the front spoiler? It would seem to me that with these cars being low to the ground that
the snow if high enough would put additional pressure on the spoiler. Just my thoughts. Wanted to hear from those who do drive in the winter.
