Decided to put the final black accents on my new beloved P Car Turbo S. Blacked out the rear deck lead Turbo S Badges and the top of the rear spoiler. Last touch will probably be blacking out the front side markers. LOVE this car, almost as much as my beloved 2010 Snakeskin Green Viper ACR, and those who know me know that's a lot of car LOVE! Thank you GOD for your blessings!

Very nice. Is this like an '08-ish 997? I'm only faintly familiar with P cars because of how varied the option sets can be and they can make your head spin. Does this car have the "aero" rear spoiler that extends from the lower portion? I've read some real horror stories of people having to pay ridiculous sums of money on the electronics to get that thing to function properly when it fails.

This'll be a car you'll be able to sell and re-coop money on easy should you decide to sell.

Beautiful Turbo S Jimmy They are great handling cars. The P cars are hot right now. Looks like the roads are still clear and dry in your neck of the woods. May be some good driving left. Enjoy the new toy.

Thank you my friend, yes the weather has been great in December and next 7 days also, been driving her and my 2010 ACR as much as I can. These 2 cars are Bi-Poloar opposites which makes it great going back and forth between the 2 of them. Praise GOD for his blessings, none of this stuff happens without HIM.

Jimmy...... she looks great!!!! I know you texted me the pics of her a few weeks back and I told you that I loved the black accents. I honestly didn't notice the decals on the front lower portion of the doors. While they certainly don't look bad, it's something that I would personally do without. I know we go way back so please know that I'm being straight with you. If you left them on, it's certainly not tacky but I think it's cleaner without buddy!!!! If you don't like what I said....... you can tell me to f#ck off via text!!!!!! Love ya, man!!!!!!

Not a fan of the script on the door since it seems off from the standard font. Otherwise, love the car.

Looks great! I wonder what difference the calipers might add to it if they were painted Silver with black letters? Have you thought about that or do you like the Yellow?

Thank you very much. Nah, I love the stock yellow calipers and the nice accent it gives to the stock turbo II wheels that I had powder coated gloss black.

Looks good. A shame it is silver. My 1st Vette was silver. One & only silver car for me. Hides dirt well, but goddamn boring color

Love the .2 cars. Just got a 997.1 C2S myself. Love the yellow carbon ceramics on it. Is it a PDK or manual car?

Thank you my friend. PDK, I drive her in manual mode with the center console shifter all the time. My arthritic left knee thanks me that I don't have to work a clutch (as least on this car).: )
