    911 variant a day by 2004 (funny!)

    911 VARIANT A DAY BY 2004

    Following the recent launch of the 911 C4S Cabrio, the GT3 RS, the Turbo Cabrio, the revised GT2 and the more powerful, Carrera-based 40th Anniversary edition, Porsche has revealed a radical plan to mark the start of its most famous model's fifth decade by announcing a new 911 variant every day for the next six months. 'We have realised you can never have too many slightly different versions of the same car,' revealed one Stuttgart insider. 'That's why we will mark the final months of the 996 model's life with a new version every single day for six months, starting in January. A little bit more power, a fractionally larger rear wing, some almost unnoticeably different wheels, you name it, we'll have it. Whatever kind of 911 you want, you'll be able to find it. As long as it's rear engined and 911 shaped of course.'
    Not everyone is impressed with Porsche's brave plan, however. 'That's just silly,' said a spokesBrummie for MG-Rover. 'They should take a leaf out of our book by just saying they're going to introduce lots of exciting new models. And then not bother. Arrr. Aaa-it. Kipper tie, etcetera'
    Porsche boffins remain confident that, unlike their British compatriots who appear unable to drop a V8 into a river, never mind a bloody car, they will be able to fulfil their promise. 'We have already mapped out the extremely minor changes we will be making for the first five weeks of new 911 variants,' boasted Dr. Uli Znnn, a senior powertrain engineer. 'For instance, there will be an 8bhp increase for the Carrera 4, to make the C4SE, then the next day a two wheel drive version of that, then another four wheel drive version but with a wider body and then a Targa roof version of that car, and so on and so forth. Of course, there are some things we won't do. For example, we will not offer a version with a dismally small power output aimed at big ponces who just want to show off. After all, we don't want to tread on the toes of the Boxster.'

    That's funny! (probably because it has a kernel of truth in it)

    Re: 911 variant a day by 2004 (funny!)

    I'm confused what's that mean exactly?

    Re: 911 variant a day by 2004 (funny!)

    A kernel of truth? That's a big kernel...

    Re: 911 variant a day by 2004 (funny!)

    You're right, Grant, more like the whole cob of corn.
