Default Back to 997.2 TTS- Edition 918 Spyder

Greetings,

A little over a year ago I sold my 2010 TT Cab and moved into a 2017 TTS Cab. I have regretted giving up that car ever since. I love the 991 TTS but also put a a lot into the 997.2 TT. It just didn't make sense to keep both at the time. Anyway, I just acquired a 2012 911 TTS Edition 918 Spyder. I am sure some of you have seen the car up for sale. I am thrilled with the purchase. There was a bit of a premium over a standard TTS for what is essentially a (really nice!) trim package and a numbered car. I love the upmarket look and it is the most unique car I have owned. I don't buy these for investment purposes so if anything comes of it in the future that is just gravy.

I look forward to participating in this Forum with renewed zeal!

Best,

G.

Unbelievable. I don't believe it, but since you posted pics, heck yes! It's true. WAY TO GO. Congrats. Must be so amazing every time you walk back to your car after parking it and seeing this car sitting there. So hot, you will get so much attention driving and parking this baby. (EDIT) I found all the pics. Wow, just wow. Cool stuff.

Thank you! I will post additional shots and they will be pretty close to identical to the ones found through the link that you provided as many of these were spec'd out the same way being a special edition. I tried to zoom in on the panel on the glove compartment door to see which number this car has. The car I purchased has just over 12K miles.

Thrilled with the purchase! A great way to get back into a 997.2 TT/TTS. They are great cars and we're all fortunate to own one. Again, thanks!

Best,

G.

VERY cool - I saw that up for sale and loved the trim/look... not to mention people assume you've got a 918 Spyder at home

I'm guessing Florida by the look and the username.
