Every once in a while I get to feel like I get to go and do cool things…. This is definitely one of those cool things. We found out about it just early enough to RSVP and get to attend! Was a lucky day I suppose.
Meeting the 991
I was pretty excited — Ever since I knew about the new 911 I couldn’t wait to meet her and see her in person. I also managed to latch onto the new reference, the 991, pretty early on…. Thankfully my 911 knowledge came in handy and it was easily remembered.
For one, I was excited to see the line up of 911s that they had — one from 1970 up to a recent 997 model. Pretty nice. I was a little sad that there wasn’t a 3.2 Carrera there like what I’m looking for though.
Instead, just to torture me, there was a 997 GT3 Cup Car! And, funny enough, it was actually a car that had participated in this year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona! Like wow. I was pretty much in love. (It was funny, since I was more interested in her than the 991 that I was there to see! Ooops.)
As always, the Porsche dealership did not disappoint. I’m glad we were there a bit early, because I got some photos taken before people started to show up and I spent most of the time chatting with people than worrying about photos. Bad of the photographer in me, but good for the budding socialite.
On Thursday I’ll be treating you to a short clip of the actual reveal of the 991 911, so stay tuned for that!
For now, I’ll share some photos.
