    Sun seems to have had a stroke last night and his mobility is diminished, with daddy in tears he still jumped in the truck! and cheerfully rolled south from El Norte.

    It's grim when you can see the inevitable. Thing is, they don't seem to be too bothered by it. Perhaps a lesson in there somewhere....

    regarding cayenne s, the suspension is nice and firm but definitely not enough passing power for two lane, although we slashed plenty of freeway left lane losers running up and back.... if we'd been running > 100 mph it would have been very slow...  the pano roof gives an open feel but is useless for catching rays because the bar above the drivers head is too wide.  i'm a cab guy and so is Sun... a fitting 4 college boys and Sun in was tight!  its a good size for a couple with one dog to road run with luggage but too small for schlepping stuff.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Sun is back on the trail!  After xrays and blood tests, the Vet thinks he just overcooked it after his big hike Saturday by hangin' with the frat boyz Smiley  instead of sleeping like usual... 

    IMG_2483.JPG

    And all that spoiling with steaks, chicken and hotdogs led to 5 pounds of chub... now he's old it doesnt burn off, but he's up and rolling!!!!  Less spoiling for a whileSmiley

    Glad he's okay and back on the trail. Looks like some great hiking there.


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Joe,

    he's feeling so good he is finalizing his new rig for New zealand!, 2014 delivery:

    GT3

    rhodium  silver, silver wheels

    sports buckets

    100 litre fuel tank

    cdr plus

    smoking package

    dunlop tyres

    sun is going to love that rig, even though he's a cab guy.  Great to hear the gear ratios are much closer!


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    I didn't know he was a smoker. indecision

    100l fuel tank? Didn't even know that was an option. Did you pass on a Strad?


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Smoker pack is great for plugging in your valentine...

    Im waiting for a strad but what is a reasonable  price? Theyre too hot, for relative performance

    why not have the big tank? I wish it was 25 gal like ferrariSmiley


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Congrats on the GT3 , Sun will for sure appreciate the sound !! indecision

    Yeah, I looked at one 2 years ago that had 3000 miles on it and asking was $130. Prices in NZ are insane. It's a nice car but it's not a GTO. I bet you'll be able to buy a Scud for less than a CS in a couple of years.

    Is the optional larger tank available on RHD cars?

    It wasn't on the 996 and 997 generations?

    Thanks Gnil,

    he figures he might as well go out at 9000 rpm shreiking through the gears, this gt3 sounds a fantastic car,  with lower gearset finally! Ive been waiting.SmileySmileySmiley

    Sun opted just for the bucket seats and not the club sport package, so we can fit our luggage in back. Smiley He will be there at least in spirit.SmileySmiley

    Fritz,

    i read on the gt3 thread it was only available LHD, but my dealer/importer says its 100 l in RHD.  I hope so?

    RHD low mile strads are 140k british pounds! Thats already more than a scud in usa.....Smiley It would be nice to finally own a non usa pollution emasculated strad but too pricy.

    If it's any consolation, current state-of-the-art engine management systems mean that emissions laws can be complied with without emasculating engines, and Euro and USA spec engine control maps just differ in nuances.

    in 2004 Fritz, I recall the non US stradale has 25 more HP, etc. -- Peter Mann, the President of Ferrari Club of France told me so at the time.
