Hello all. Just picked up my 992 C2 this morning and since I've been a part of this forum since the early days, thought I'd share the pics I took while at the dealership. What a ride for the ~6 miles home ;), so different from the 991.2 C2 I had for a day. My plan is to try and transition to this as my DD and sell my beloved almost 6 yr old Macan Turbo in the next couple months. The 992 is getting towed tomorrow morning for paint correction, ppf, ceramic, & tint, hoping to have it back by the end of week.

Very nice !! Can you please note the differences from the 991.2 which stood out to you .Congrats !!

Thanks! A few things I noticed with my limited seat time: the 992 feels bigger and more planted, perhaps due to the 20/21“ staggered wheel set up vs. all 20s coupled with the wider body; more compliant ride, less harsh in Normal, even with the larger rears; and while I didn’t push my 992 at all, it didn’t feel as fast, I think due to the transmission and how smooth it shifts gears.

But most of all over the price - in Australia that car would cost me twice what you paid for it!!!?

I have a feeling that you are going to have a blast with that car . The idea of the base engine mated to the staggered setup sounds fantastic .

I did not option sport chrono...
I love your build . The only thing I would have added was sport chrono . It's not that you will use things like launch control or race it to redline often but I love the sport response feature as an option to make a rolling pass. Its so instant that I found it useful. On my Macan even though it has sport chrono it lacks that feature (first gen cars ) . As a result the option is practical in a daily vehicle.

The things I really liked are the wheels with the white and clear taillights , The steering wheel and agate look fantastic . I really like the car !! Congrats again !

Very nice, and I’m very jealous!!! But most of all over the price - in Australia that car would cost me twice what you paid for it!!!?
I know. I talked at length with a guy who had a 911 Turbo years ago . It was insanely priced comparably , He did explain that people do hold onto the car much longer . The entire market is so different than the states . I believe that the only way to do it is be sure you get the build right and hang onto the car . If you sell it too soon is where the snag lies , The car is so expensive that the guy who can pay that much with want a new one . Its years later when you have gotten full use out of it that the car might actually hold value better than in the states .

BTW Australia is not the most expensive and the US is not the cheapest but clearly our two regional price comparisons are dramatically different with the cars . One thing the guy did say to me is that once he is in the car he forgets very quickly the money spent.
