Default Hello from new owner



Hello all. Just my introduction. Purchased my first Porsche a 2017 991.2C2s. Iíve wanted one of these since childhood when I had the 959 poster in my bedroom.

The car car really feels special to me and itís not my daily driver. Iím looking forward to an autocross and hopefully a few track days per year.

Iíve always modded my past cars and Iím undecided about this one. I look forward to being a part of the community.



At the dealer



He likes cleaning it as much as I do

This has the PDK. I really had every intention of buying a manual but as soon as I drove the PDK and felt how fast it makes the car feel I was sold. I will say from time to time I'm wishing I had purchased a manual. I'm sure if I had the manual I'd be thinking I should have gotten PDK.

This one has PASM which is 20mm lower and sport package. I really like the RWS for a nice easy turn around in town.. I haven't gotten to feel how that effects high speed corners yet. I also personally love the way the LED headlights look.

I had the front end wrapped with xpel and I wish I had the whole car done but you can spend so much money just having the rest of the car finished up.

Interior is pretty basic. Standard in black with power sport seats 14 way. I love the yellow seatbelts!

Looks great! I share your same feelings on the PDK. I at times wish it was a manual, but man... the PDK in these newer cars is something special and almost makes it feel more exotic to me

Congrats on crushing a childhood dream! Cheers!

Congratulations on the new car! Also have a C2s and just love it. It really is a sleeper car. Good for a fun leisurely drive or a ripping track day.
