      Remember this guy?



      Nick Murray, the guy who documented his numerous problems with his 991 very publicly on YouTube? Porsche bought his car back and he went a bought a brand new M4.

      Well, he's selling his M4 and buying another 991. And he even wants to do European delivery.

Driving my 911 was special and I just don't feel the same way about the BMW. I will be waiting for the 991.2 to be released and plan to do a Euro delivery with videos covering the whole process. As to which 911 I plan to get I am still undecided but most likely a well optioned C2S like last time or a light optioned Turbo.

      I knew he was going to do that. I actually enjoy his YouTube channel.

      If it was Ferrari, not only would they never have bought it back, but they'd probably refuse to sell him another. Porsche should tell him he has to buy a Macan, Boxster and Cayman before he can have another 991.

      Note he said he would get a C4S or a Turbo, not a C2S. Interesting since he was previously saying he liked the C2S despite his winter driving.

      Yeah, I follow this guy as well on YT. Surprised after going on about how much he liked the M4 he's willing to jump back on a 911 with the kind of experience he had...

      Well, there was mention of him being an attention whore.....with a BMW, you see them more often than not at every corner vs. even the most pedestrian 911

      It's interesting I've seen quite a few people go 911 -> M3 -> 911.

      Did he say that in the video? Because in his posts he says C2S.

      I can understand this fully. Certain cars can get under your skin. They take over your life, and even a bad experience with one isn't enough to get it out of your system.

      My B5 is that way. It's old, slow, and breaks a lot. But I love it. I must have it.

      That's so lame! I can't believe you would want Porsche to be more like those *******s at Ferrari. Porsche should be happy that they have enough customers to support their fat profit margins. It's a symbiotic relationship. They should never get so arrogant that they look a gift horse in the mouth. And they are not infallible and should own up to their mistakes and be apologetic in the case of a lemon.

      If he buys a new Porsche, the saga continues i.e. moar youtube views!!!!!!!!! Life is all about youtube views.
      It makes me wonder if Porsche is somehow helping out with this second one for the media attention. While not necessarily positive the first time, they're hoping this is the redemption Porsche that brings him back to the brand.

      He bought it and was all giddy about how much he loved it; now apparently he doesn't. That's about all that's happened.
