Having owned a stunning GT4 in Sapphire Blue for just over 3 years, I placed a deposit on a 992 Carrera in 2021.

After waiting for just over 16 months, I was finally able to collect my C2.
I鈥檝e had it fully PPFd and ceramic coated. It is well optioned and in GT silver.

Really enjoyed the 35 mile drive home, it is quite stunning. Looking forward to putting quite a few miles on it - sadly, it will be garaged over winter. 馃槩馃槩馃槩 I have other cars to use. 馃榾馃榾馃榾

I spent some time in Barbados while back and drove a manual 100%. Funny how quickly you get used to shifting with left hand and flying through turning circles/run abouts/rondos how ever you call them in England.

Congratulations @Lozzer! It looks great. I also waited forever (17 months) but it was well worth it. I鈥檓 impatient to read your comments coming from a Cayman GT4! After all, your previous car was just brillant.

I remember you mentioning taking PDK this time. Let us know the difference in driving a NA mid-engine vs rear engine with turbos. PDK vs MT.

I definitely don鈥檛 miss my base Boxsters but you can鈥檛 compare apples with oranges, or a Saphire Blue GT4 with a base 981. But you can compare your GT4 with a base 992 for sure.

First thing I noticed was the bigger more luxurious cabin of the 992 and of course the beautiful engine. Hope you won鈥檛 miss your stick. 馃槈

Congrats again and welcome to the 992 club!

Shifting with the left hand and driving on the "wrong" side (apologies to @Lozzer) of the road while going though a roudabout (and having to look on the right side for upcoming traffic) might, could, would probably spell disaster for me! :eek:

A day in that set up and you would be fluent. Unless, you have a hard time with manual on runabouts鈥︹︷煠

I do have a problem with roundabouts, especially when they have an outer circle that carries traffic in a clockwise direction and an inner circle that goes anticlockwise. But I think that may be only in the Magic Roundabout in Swindon England. So how would I drive on the left side of the road in an anticlockwise direction? Will let @Lozzer explain that to me, I don't trust you LK, you pilot boats! LOL! :p

Beautiful car! While I sympathize with you not being able to enjoy driving it for the winter, I鈥檇 still love to have it sitting in the garage to admire for the next few months.

I was fortunate enough to live in the UK for a couple years. First order of business when i arrived was driving lessons and the mantra was 鈥渟tay left, look right鈥. It鈥檚 surprising how quickly it became the norm once I was in the car and on the road, but I found myself getting in the left hand passenger seat wondering where the steering wheel was every few weeks.

@Lozzer must be busy with everything happening in the UK after the Queen鈥檚 passing. Here in Canada, she was still 芦 officially 禄 our Queen. And now, we have King Charles III. With that name, he will be a great King!

Charles (the First)
But you can call me Charlie

Does this mean you鈥檝e been demoted to the second most popular Charles in Canada?
