Dan, very nice ... Enjoyed the pics. I'm really liking the lime gold metallic guys. Anyone else feeling it or is it just me ?

Great photos! First time the gold one actually looked good. I like every angle of the 991. Thank you for sharing.

Still good looking just not love at first sight for me like the 997 was. Waiting for it to grow on me has never worked ...with cars or women!
Agreed - something just looks off about it - certainly doesn't have the instant appeal to me of the 993 or 997. Maybe I get used to the idea - I want to like it, but...seen enough photos by now to be pretty sure it is not a camera angle problem - Dan never has a problem getting his car to look great. So...I don't know.

Great shots though - almost like being there!

Funny how we both post positive comments on the lime gold. It looks pretty good in direct sunlight in these photos, but when I saw in person on a cloudy day it just did not look good.

Great pictures. Thank you for these.

I like it, but I'm not drooling over it. I will say that the rear looks so much better with the "911 Carrera S" script omitted. And I'd definitely go 19s.

Do you know what he used as a last-step-product to detail the Porsches?
Andrew tells me that he is using McGuire's "Final Inspection."

As always with Porsche, I somewhat question their design changes initially, but in time learn to appreciate what they are doing to these cars.

I also heard that Porsche is doing great things with the PSE on these 991 cars--better than the PSE on the 997.2 cars. We got a taste of it this morning when one of the guys driving the Ruby Red car gave us a little thrill going by!

Great pictures!!

By the way, is there any Ahate Grey? Seeing quite numbers of lime gold and even some cognac but not seeing any agate grey.

There does not appear to be any other colors other than what I have shown so far. Here's one more shot from inside one of their tents, and a close up of the Lime Gold door handle in shade.

Great photos Dan!

Some of these cars were (same colors) at the Rennsport Reunion IV. The rear seating is more spacious, not so much legroom, but seat depth/width.

Great pictures. Thanks for posting them. Best real world views I've seen of the 991 thus far.

Dan. Great pictures! I'm actually going to be there at Fess Parkers this week. Do you know if they will still be there? I may have to drive my 997- finally get to park next to a new one and take some pictures for the group.
