Are you trading in your Panamera?

BTW I have a deposit on a April build and I am still messing with the configurator as well as trying to find and read as many reviews as possible. There seems to be only one video review by top gear who say it is a great car.

I am I the same boat. My is March build for April delivery. Still playing with options. The hardest part is to settle on the color. I am sick of white cars as my last 4-5 cars were all white. Played around with black with yellow accents. I like it one day, don't care for it the next day. Also, do I go with RWS or not? Choices, choices...

Good for you. I am envious. I think if I were to order a new Porsche today I would order a T. Was at the dealer yesterday (basically turning in my lease) and was told I could have a T allocation.

Soooooooo tempting.

No way to convince you to go with LWB?

LWB = Lightweight bucket seats?

I looked at the buckets. The LWB mean you can't have rear seats or heated seats. They do look awesome though.

The sport buckets mean you can't have the Carrera T interior package.

As it's going to be a daily driver, and my sole car, I need the rear seats for occasional use and I love the Carrera T interior pack!

Thank you! Not my first 991. I previously had a pre-owned 991.1 C2.

Am really excited about getting my built to order Carrera T!

Hi. For me, the Racing Yellow was a no brainer, but I know it might be a bit bright/loud for some.

I think it helps that Racing Yellow is the primary 'launch colour' and I love the Carrera T interior with Racing Yellow contrasts.

Regarding RAS, I have it on my Panamera, but not convinced that I'm a good enough driver (yet) to notice the benefit, so I didn't spec it on the Carrera T. Plus, have tried to be more sensible with options this time! Panamera had about ú13,000 in options! This time only around ú3,700 on the T.

Hi.

Yes, the Top Gear is the only video I have seen too. Will keep looking for others though. Autocar rated the Carrera T highly in their road test. How is your spec looking at the moment?
