Great looking car. A very nice 996 drove past me this week and I had forgotten how hard Porsche worked to make those cars sound like the air-cooled cars they replaced. I was getting the mail and heard it coming and would have bet money it was an air cooled 911 until I saw it. In contrast my 992 has virtually none of that sound... :(

your 992 is a turbo, right? even the 996 turbo sounds like an irritated sewing machine from the factory. my 997 TT had no exhaust character until i swapped out for an x-pipe. not a lot of room for tubing and the turbos act as giant acoustic absorbers - it takes work to get a water cooled porsche turbo car to sound good.

^^^Ha! Thanks for the kind words… The photographer would be my son… used to be his car as well - though it was purely stock when he had it 😃 Main St, Easthampton NY…

That's an awesome yellow - the look is seamless inside to out.
