    Re: Mission E - Can it compete with Tesla?

    Here's another problem for Tesla: the price of WTI crude fell thru the floor today to around $53/bbl, and 87 octane regular will soon be under $2.00 at this rate. For us Porsche folks. 93 octane...

    I had Tintworld in Chicagoland put their Ultimate 70% tint on all my windows, like my last C2S, and they again did a supurb installation job. Most people are unaware it's tinted, but it provides...
  7. Re: Is there a solid summary of clear film and ceramic coatings?

    Westcoaster, i meant hairline Westcoaster. The Expel film on my 991.1 C2S seemed to have a soft finish, and hairlines were a constant problem.

  13. Re: My first 911... Wheel questions for the group.

    I've had 20" wheels on my 981 CS, 991.1 C2S, and my 991.2 C2S, and they all have great ride, great and great to drive. 20" is probably the best for street use.

    Black. Not what I thought I wanted till I found this one. There are enough stripe decals on it that the Black is easier to care for.

  16. Re: No USA MY19 991.2 Non-S C4 Cab builds until spring 2019?

    It seems Porsche allocates very few production slots to the base C4. They sell all the 911's they can build, so why wouldn't they allocate more of their slots to the more expensive models? That's my...

    $27,000 is a lot of money. Get the Base, enjoy, and then get tuned when the factory warranty expires.

    Check out the Key Set function, for use when you have everything set just the way you want it.
    And note that it is different for each key - each key has to be set, separately.

    Re: Would You Buy an Electric Boxster/Cayman?
