Did a “plate test” today. It’ll have to wait until my generic plates come in the mail, then I can swap the generics for the PCA 60 tags. Looks good to me.November 30, 2015 at 9:11 pm #492
Looks terrific and so much cleaner with just Porsche 911 n the deckDecember 2, 2015 at 9:42 am #493
Thanks, Alex. I actually ordered just the “911” badging in order to change it out for “GTS.” Made the switch yesterday. Here’s a before/after shot.December 3, 2015 at 9:24 am #498
You should submit these photos to the e-brake newsletter under the photo of the week/month contest!

maybe a dumb question, but just to clarify, Porsche allowed the “911” designation instead of the entire “911 Carrera GTS” script from the factory?
I thought they denied all of those requests, but sounds like I’m mistaken.
BTW, I owe you a beer – or twenty – for the tip on getting my personalized plates at AAA. It took me exactly 5 minutes to pickup my plates and have them assigned to the CC yesterday.December 3, 2015 at 11:08 am #501
You’re welcome on the AAA tip. They can handle many DMV services, and any time you can avoid setting foot in the DMV, that’s a very good thing.
I ordered my car with “model designation 911” and that’s how it came! As I may have posted before, my intention was to use the “911” as placement for the “GTS” badging I had in hand, which I swapped in a couple of days ago. I just like the simplicity of the “GTS” badging. Running with just the “911” badge meant the outside of the car had no GTS designations at all.
Free beer? Yes, please. Perhaps at the CC Confab in Cambria…whenever? 😎December 14, 2015 at 5:57 pm #546
Just returned fro our European Delivery trip two weeks ago and had a truly memorable experience. My cousin had coincidentally ordered a 2016 Targa GTS and we decided to pick up the two cars together. Our Club Coupe is the third last to be built. There was still one in the Porsche Exclusive section which was being worked on and possibly one more in production.
Our trip took us from Germany through Austria, Italy and Switzerland. It was the warmest November on record in Europe and we had temperatures in the 60 driving through the Alps.
The trip provided a great way to experience the car and also allowed us to compare the two cars. The Club Coupe had winter tires mounted on different wheels. Between the two cars, the Club Coupe certainly was the one more noticed.December 14, 2015 at 6:00 pm #547December 14, 2015 at 9:33 pm #548
Congratulations! Greet shots and it’s kind of cool to see a CC with different wheels. Those actually look quite good. Amazing that you had such nice weather this time of year. Good for you!December 15, 2015 at 4:22 am #551
Klan, Very nice pictures, thank you for sharing, nice touch on the winter wheels. What winter tires did they mount? CongratulationsDecember 15, 2015 at 9:22 pm #553
Alex, thank you for the message. The cars had different brands of winter tires. One had Pirellis and the other I believe had Michelin winter tires. They were rated at 240km/h max and seemed to be good tires in dry conditions, but we really did not encounter any snow or significant rain.December 16, 2015 at 5:29 am #562
Klan, thanks for the input….enjoy your Club Coupe
