I'm thinking about getting a proper performance car sometime in the next year or so and have whittled it down to the Porsche 996 911.
They're now at what I think will be their lowest price and are becoming quite desirable motors. Thing is, I'm a bit worried about the driving...
So I took the GTA to Chatz today (bought 2 new keys for it). On William Nicol in traffic I spot this 1980s odd Porsche 911 SC. My window is open so I listen too the noise it makes. He comes flying past me at some point.
I then spot both his windows are open and as he slows down I drop a gear...
did a delivery on saturday and on the way back at riebeek kasteel turn off met up with 3 911 doing 120 in 6th i just put foot and the yellow one came after me, the road has a couple of hills and valleys with slight turns there i lost him then doing 220, when a couple of slow movers slowed us...
I was looking for a park this morning in the rain and suddenly saw a car with its door open and people looking like they were leaving.
Looks like a husband and wife with child mulling round the car which is a late model 911 GT3 in dark grey.
I stop right next to them and look at the wife as...
Porsche 911 2dr 3.6
Been a dream for sometime to own a 911 like probably most people. But does a 911 look as nice as a Brera? On the road they do.
Never drove one but been told they are a dream to drive too... Tempted to move on to bigger things next year. Wondered if anyone has owned one or...
rare that i buy a car mag these days, but C&S has published an issue celebrating 50 years of the 911. So I bought it. Reading matter for later tonight. :)
Would love an early, thin-bumper, 911. One day, I hope...:thumbs:
Ive seen a lot of 4C comparisons to the Cayman S but I really think it is better compared to the Base model 911 991.
For a start the base model 991 0-100/62 time is 4.3 secs where as the 4C is 4.5
The 1/4 mile for 991 is 12.4 secs and the 4C is 12.75
These are much closer times than the 4C vs...
Now the Porsche 911 is 50, and the VW Golf is knocking on the door of 40, I think that their continuity (in one form or another) has provided a reference point for how automotive things were, and how they are now. It's nice to have some consistency in a fast changing world. As much as anything...
oh gosh, yes please :thumbs:
excellent video that shows the depth of thought that has gone into creating this masterpiece:

i've not allocated much of my imaginary lottery winnings to cars. I was going to settle for a Miura and an E-class...
I am looking for the larger throttle body and someone told me that the 911 ones fit as well. So I have found a Porsche 996 911 C4S throttle body and was wondering if anyone knows if that would fit as well?
So I got fed up of the rubbish creaky un-supportive GTV seats (ph2 leather) and looked for some other black leather seats that would fit.
Anything new was way too expensive for a car of this value so I turned to ebay.
To cut to the chase, I ended up with a pair of electric black leather 911...
