Hey chaps,
Finally picked up my fixed roof Mamba on Monday. Quick badly edited picture from
My phone. Too busy putting miles down.
Might do a separate post with more pictures but I know a glut of uk arrivals are inbound.
Not seen many fixed roof CTs on here.
Will post some on the Mamba club thread.
Xmas day come early 🤩
Cheers

Ordered a Turbo in September with no one ahead in the queue (versus 20+ for a 4S)and still no build slot in December... All dealers saying 9 to 12 months for Turbos and to stay put. The lack of news is very frustrating!

Picked up my Turbo S earlier and said goodbye to the Turbo. Extremely happy with the colour choice, including the Mission E's painted in exterior colour and all the carbon fibre I added. I'll take some better pictures once I've spent a bit more time with it.

that’s of course if your not an idiot and spec a GTS with leather…….
When they dropped matrix lights from the 4S CT options I transferred my spec to a GTS ST and you have to have leather for my options choice anyway.
I didn't bother to go any further as it I was looking for a more comfortable car not a sportier one so the GTS was very much a second choice anyway so not inclined to pay more for a car I like less (except the lights....

Looks great! However looks more like you got the car painted to match the colour of the wheels than the other way round.
That’s what I did with my order.
Was gonna get a white car and paint the mission E’s in white, then changed my mind and ordered car in silver to match wheels.

I collected my Turbo S today and said goodbye to my 4S. I’m only 49 miles in, but I’m delighted with the spec I’ve chosen (and so I should be with the hours I’ve spent on the configurator).

My 4S was Volcano and black leather, so Mamba with black and atacama beige is quite a change, but I love the lift the atacama gives to the otherwise dark interior. Plus, you get leather seat backs with the Olea leather.

I’m no audio expert, but I think the Burmester sound system is excellent, and coupling that with the acoustic glass has been a good decision.

My spec is at the following Porsche Code: PN5I6TE1.

Wow. Looks good. I have a 4S on the way but as far as I can tell it is at Sheerness port awaiting transfer to the dealer. It has been there for over a week so I hope they get their act together next week!

After all our chats about the new spec I never realised we both went for Olea Black/Atacama and Accent Package Darksilver. I'm a big fan, but also liked Black/Crayon leather that I had on the Turbo.

We also moved to Burmester and I *think* it's better than Bose, but that's about as good a review I can offer on it. A career at What Hi-Fi ain't likely to take off anytime soon. I'm intrigued that you removed the carbon interior package - we'll have to compare when we meet-up to see how that looks in person. I went a bit overboard with a carbon steering wheel and carbon wing mirrors. If the wheels could have been carbon fibre I'd have taken it.

How about the leather sun visors - is it noticeable?

You don’t notice the sun visors at all. Until you touch them, and them you feel the difference.

This is the beauty of configuring a car like this, you can really indulge those little things that make a difference to you and which then make the car feel more special and personal.

Anyway, Happy New Year, and I look forward to comparing the two cars.

Ordered first week in Sep 21 for a 4S saloon, still no confirmation of build slot. Was told March 22. They have build slots for Jan and Feb filled but nothing for March has come through thus far. Be interesting to hear if anyone has had theirs confirmed for March. So desperately want my car :confused:
