Nice! but she does have an awfully big rear end.
You do understand I'm a conservative Middle Eastern, don't you?!!! Because of flirting eyes like yours, I'm not taking her out for a drive till she puts on her bra :taunt:

Very nice car love the exterior and interior color combo choice. Forgive me if I am wrong but I thought I read that you opted out of your order on the 991 turbo or am i missing something. Enjoy and be safe!

You're right, I opted out of buying it few weeks back after it got already out of manufacturing.

The good news is that, blessed I was, I managed to secure my son's education and still afford the car. I ended up choosing between a red 2012 458 Spyder with 13,000 km on the clock and the 991 turbo I ordered. Both were exactly at the same price.

Despite being in love with Ferrari, I had to play it safe in fear of reliability and maintenance cost... Yesterday morning I emailed the dealer and he confirmed back by midnight. Now it's just paper work, local shipping from Riyadh to Jeddah, bra installation then 2,000 km break in period before I take off ;)

Great looking car, Hassaan. Please post when you have any inkling of mods so we can pound some sense into you...or at least wait a week before doing anything.

My dear Turbo Master, I vow to modify nothing, add nothing but the bra and ClearPlex windshield protection.

The only mod I'd do is to myself to lose few pounds to break the 3.0 seconds barrier in acceleration ;)

Congrats man! I was about to say you were getting a little suspicious with having a Turbo S on order and a GT3 on order and canceling both / missing allocation....this was worth the wait!

God bless you (and the gentlemen above)...

How I wish I stayed in Riyadh or got relocated to the Eastern Province to enjoy Bahrain circuit and Bahrain Porsche club. You're lucky to be there. I'm in Jeddah now which limits my attendance to once a year to the circuit when all Jeddah club ship their cars to track them there.

Thanks to you and to all who commented above.

Sweet ride, Hassaan. Congrats.

I suggest you might want to consider getting a set of these. If you have a blowout or other tire problem a few hundred km from a dealer that the canned air can't fix, there's a decent chance you could source replacement rubber. But if you can't get the wheel off, you'd have to flatbed the car back to the mother ship (dealer) as only a Porsche service center (or MAYBE another Turbo/GT3/GTS owner) will have centerlock removal tools.

The tools fit easily in the frunk of a 911 (the torque wrench breaks into 3 pieces and fits in its slick, hard-sided case; the Porsche collabsible breaker bar folds down to a size smaller than the case) with lots of room to spare for soft-sided luggae. I take the tools with me anytime I venture more than 75km from home.

Thank you... and thanks for the recommendation. I hope you never get to use it. I think I may still have it in my Amazon basket though from a previous recommendation. But what do you do to raise all wheels for tire change on the road? Since Porsche demands to raise all four paws off the ground for tire change I see no use for this toolbox.

The CL is my nightmare. Therefore I'll have my chauffeur drive behind me wherever I go (just kidding). Probably I'll save Porsche Road Assist on my favorites list and pray I'll never get to call them.
