Getting mine (4S CT in dolomite) in October, and it’s fair to say I’m a bit excited. 🤣🤦🏼
What’s the thoughts from those of you who are lucky enough to have yours already?
Is it any good?

Had mine a few months now and have done nearly 2000 miles

Great experience so far, more than quick enough, feels nearly as quick as my old Huracan

Beautifully made, looks great and no issues experienced - and def feels like a Porsche and special

A couple of observations:

Getting in is slightly odd, door post sits slightly forward in comparison to seat back so you have to twist a little to get in and this causes my foot to sometime get stuck in the plastic trim by the accelerator. Don’t think it’s helped by small doors - ads a little character to the experience

In sports plus gearbox can down change when slowing to join a queue at slow speed, can be a little off putting - car feels like it lurches forward a little - only experienced this a couple of times

as I say, observations, not complaints

Other than that, car is spot on

I just picked mine up today. Dolomite 4s.

    Love the car and the way it drives.
  • the interior is great, the seats are super comfortable, I have 18 ways.
  • cargo area is smaller than what I was hoping for but I will make some adjustments and make do. But my 45 lb dog can’t sit up straight in the cargo he’ll have to sit in the back seat.
  • i have the performance pack and even with rear wheel steer it doesn’t behave the same as with the 911. you can feel the weight and momentum of the battery push the car straight even as you corner.
only thing I would say is if it’s an around town car, which this is for me. The 4s is great. If its your only car and you need a bit more thrill I probably would spring for the turbo or turbo s.

Looks amazing! Congrats! When did you place your order? My 4CT was originally supposed to come by 7/31 but but they’ve been pushing it back consistently. I’m at 9/3 now. Very impatiently waiting. 😩

Can you grab a picture of your dog in the cargo area? It’s discouraging that a 45lb dog can’t fit back there. We have three dogs, 50-70lbs, that were planning to transport in the cargo area and I recall seeing an early reviewer post a photo of his shepherd/lab sized dog sitting up straight in the cargo bay with plenty of additional room.

Thank you for the review!

Anyone notice that the configurator shows clear side markers but the car comes with amber?

I ticked the 2+1 seat option for the 55 pounder I have.

as previous poster said, amber is a US requirement. However, it’s $130 part for the clear markers and a 5 minute diy job.

I'm just happy to see more Cross Turismos land on these shores, gives hope to the rest of us Americans who ordered one 👍🏻
