History
Had this 2014 to 2016. Previous owner was Premier footballer Scott Sinclair which was not important to me, but what did pique my interest about that fact was that his girlfriend was Helen Flanagan. I used to look over to the seat next to me knowing she had been sitting there.... Well you would, wouldn't you.

Not a great car. I had fantasised about a 911 Turbo since being a boy. I remember a 911 Turbo posting a sub 5 seconds 0-60 which was ground breaking back then (before the F40 etc.). This car was too heavy (4 wheel drive) and had a laughably slow gear change from the Tiptronic (pre-paddle slider on the steering wheel) - I just spent my time wishing I could swap it with a manual as then it would have been quite fun.

One of the PCCBs got a fracture and cost me £5000 plus fitting to replace.

Definitely not living the dream.

Pretty rapid though - especially it's midrange acceleration: and the noise of the air being sucked into those side vents on full acceleration was awesome :)
