Question: Did you get rear wheel steering? Curious how that impacts your impressions vs. the Cayman.
I do have RWS but to be honest have not paid enough attention yet to comment on the difference. Maybe today

Very strange. In the configurator images (as seen on my iPad) that car has no wheels?! Brakes (PCCBs) but no wheels?!

Would have been cool if it added jack stands under the car.

Haha, well it does say wheels painted in black and that option is only available on the standard Carrera S wheels. Thatís probably why they donít explicitly state.

I think it is 4th to 5th (as opposed to 4th to 3rd, at speed) that I havenít got used to. Otherwise all other gear changes come naturally.

Love that T but way to close in price to a GT3 for me

I went but didn't take photos there because, remarkably, the car was isolated next to the new GT3 RS. I do have T photos from PEC ATL, which I can try to share.

The one bit of info I did get, which seemed to contradict something I thought I'd heard before about end of run or scarcity, was that allocations should be plentiful.

It's the ultra-lightweight version. Much less unsprung weight this way. :-)
