None of the chrono cocks light up as standard unless youre using the Chrono function at the time. 
I had mine switched on at the last service.

Hi Lads,

 

I'm probably about to go down the route of some slight mods to my current 987.1S.  Carnewal for starters.

 

If the right R comes up, I'll see. The cash is there. It might even be a modded one like @Frayz as I'd be totally into that :)

 

I've decided ALL 987's are great cars and some are just a bit greater than others.

In think I got my R.  Should be with me next weekend bar a total collapse at the PPI gate this week...

 

She's white with all the right bits (one owner) and relative moon miles (53k) --- I bought it to drive !!!

Well done though, exciting times!

Yep, I have her booked into Porsche for an engine and gearbox transplant as they'll obviously be fooked...😆

The whole point of an R is the drive - and that means putting miles on it!  You will not be disappointed.

By the time you get to 100K miles, the R will be classed as a bonafide classic and high mileage won't make much odds like with the 944Turbo.

Yes I specifically waited for one with over 50k miles.

 

It's liberating not giving a toss how many miles I pile onto it. Loads of R's seem to being kept below 30k miles for some reason....

 

One Owner, Manual, Buckets, PSE, Auto A/C, Bi-Xenon

It's got everything except Sport Chrono. I'm pricing adding that as I wanted one without so I could add it after and not have the dash dial thing.

 

No short shift but I am not totally sold on that personally so I want to explore either tightening up the standard box with hardware kit (Function First?) etc.  I need to try more before deciding.  I liked a GT3 box someone had fitted to a  996 I tried the other week.  Numeric Cables too possibly.

 

I had considered modding my current gen 1 but I don't have the time to get it even past first base so at least with an R it's more evolution/preventative maintenance rather than ripping stuff out for the hell of it.

 

I also came around to the idea of white as sick of washing my current midnight blue every time it gets sniff of dust. Amazing color when clean though.  I plan some big multi day runs with Irish club next season.  I think R really suits white with all the added black trims.

There was a 30% increase in insurance going from the 987.1S to the 987.2R.  The difference in tax more than offsets that anyway

I would highly recommend chrono, just for the sport button alone.  It brings the car alive.

Yes, I understand it's a different throttle map and (more importantly) lets the back end move about more before PSM kicks in.
