    Driving behind myself (!)

    This morning, nice experience : I drove behind myself looking at my back...(!)
    My wife took the 997 and I followed her in her VW cab.
    Great to admire the lines of the car in motion and to see how easy the 997 run from one cluster to another on a highway with low traffic...
    Great to see the car going around in the city from light to light...
    Great to hear the exhaust sound from behind the car (even not PSE...),
    Great to see the heads turning, etc...
    Really, if you can (and if you trust your wife enough), don't hesitate and make this over-narcissic experience !

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    head turning on the car or on your wife?
    just joking...

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    Agree ,i got a friend to photograph me on the move so i could really see my car on the road in motion

    On the car or on my wife : nice in either case !
    I'm not a jealous guy...

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    I did the same thing, followed my son to see what it looked like from behind. It certainly was the right decision to buy this beautiful vehicle. Now if I was only smart enough to bring my camera!!

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    Don't forget to get dropped off on lonely country road and let your friend take the car and drive past you a few times.

    Worth it to hear engine. Also to test sanity and loyalty of friends. (remember to pocket your cell phone!)

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    I'm tempted to do this with my wife so that I can hear what PSE sounds like to "normal people".

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    Cool story.
    Yesterday I was out front doing yard work when I heard a 911 coming down the street. It was a 997 S. When it passed I was just amazed how much more powerful the car looked when on the move. It just looked so much more aggressive then when I look at mine parked. So far I've only seen 5 other 997's on the road. Pretty surprising to me.

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    I had my cousin take for nice looong drive and I found myself staring as much as the other drivers!!!!

    The car is just stunningly gorgeous! Can't wait to do it again with the PSE-ON Full time!

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    i do that all the time with my brother, sometimes it's even nicer to be behind the car than to be driving it. makes you even more proud that that is your baby on the road

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    and Cartouche

    can you see your black back ?
    and did you talk with it ???

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    Yes, indeed- excellent report!

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    Re: Driving behind myself (!)

    Well gentlemen, it looks like we're a lot of freaks here !

    Nice to meet you, friends freaks !

    And you were able to keep up?

    This is the problem with women. Toss the keys to any one of us males and they wouldn't see the car again for at least two hours. :P
