I think the first U.S. production dates are MARCH. Does anyone have a build date before 3/15?

Deliveries start in March. Pietrostone will receive his mid March. I will receive mine on April 5th in Zurich, Switzerland. US deliveries not before May.

USA deliveries are a long way off still.

I spent last week in the car for a few days at Thermal and in the surrounding hills. The car drives incredibly well and is a lot more sure-footed vs the current 991 especially on track. The brake pedal, steering, suspension have all seen tweaks and Porsche has totally crushed it out of the park. It's astonishingly good to drive.

CJ, thanks for you input. I was on the fence and got weak, ordered one for Euro Delivery this fall. My build is for a DD, will compliment my track tuned RS. Now I'm quite excited to hit Spa and the Ring in this new car.

Did you notice whether they were able to reduce road noise in the cabin on less than perfect roads?

I found the RAS a 'must have' when i ordered my 991.2GTS when i drove both with and without it on track.On the new 992 i've ordered i have left it off (still changeable) as i suspect that Porsche have got it 'right' straight out of the box..I base this premise on having a much wider front track and a engine mounts placed 8'' more forward.
Having driven the 992 do you believe the RAS is still as essential or more of a 'nice to have'. ?

Really like that color, hope I end up seeing it in person someday, I rarely see a non-white/grey 911 in my area.
