    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    wowow! bc997j are u talking about chapman's peak!?

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    You can have that experiance at quite a few different places.. though for safety.. from crashes, other cars AND fines, i prefer to drive further up the east coast, from gordans bay up towards hermanus (if you know which places im talking about.. the roads are less congested most of the time and theres less "cameras".

    on another note, unfort crimes like those are quite high... i'm not neccesseraly (can never get that word right) saying that its DANGEROUS to drive around here... but you have to be kinda carefull...
    nothing happend to me or anyone I know of while driving around although there was this 1 incident.... my elder brother was pulling one of our racing cars out of the way to get to his car. he got out to pull his car out when he heard the racing car start up and pull away.. the [censored] didnt expect the car to be so powerfull though and he drove straight into a light pole!! he got away though.

    By the way, about your music, i doubt Good hope will play that type but i'll do some searching, anything for my fellow porsche-fanatics.

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    for speed cameras do u use road angle? i know they do cover south africa!

    well the music i talking about they play at bbc 1xtra and i know they play it on 5fm . if you don mind i can send u the mp3 to your email
    if you like , bet you will like to pump the music while you driving

    yay so nice to see other fellow south africans on here! at least i'm not alone the owner of the enzo is the same owner as the CGT.
    i doubt it's Toby(he took me for a test drive in the demo 997S with PCCB) omg i felt so car sick! he drove the (insert word) out of the car!!
    i was at the joburg porsche center 3 times in 1 week was to drop off my 997 to get PSE retrofitted, then to fetch it
    now i'm going there again possibly tomorrow to fetch my new cayenne turbo, and i haven't seen any signs of a carrera GT there,
    plus it wouldn't help as i have stated you cannot get the car legalised due to it being LHD
    you are how ever allowed to drive it on a track



    Mike, you went to Porsche 3 times in the past week and you managed to miss the Carrera GT there each time?

    I was in JHB today and saw it for sale for R6.5 million. According to the salesman, John is his name, the prospective buyer would only be allowed to use it on the track. He also mentioned that there are two of them in SA and one is owned by "his boss".

    Heres two pics taken with my phone.

    ah that is because that is at the 2nd porsche center for resales of cars, i am at the new cars center that's why i didn't see it.
    i said earlier if you buy it(Check above post), you will only be allowed to use it on a track

    i would seriously consider buying it - if it were road legal, there won't be a more beautiful car in sa

    btw R6,500,000 is the equivalent of almost $1,000,000(for the other people to relate to )

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    Maybe we're just different mike, but even if i could afford a CGT, ill never buy it just to be able to drive it on track....or then again maybe i will. that car is recognized as the best supercar available today.......
    By the way, knysa really is beatifull, ure really blessed to be able to have a home there..
    We have a holiday house in Kleinmond(near Hermanus), which is aslo quite a nice place, and another one in Saldanha...i really like the latter because there are some really long, empty, twisting roads to drive on.... i go there quite often.. if you noticed that i'm never chatting on RennTeam on weekends, thats why..
    by the way..... im going to drive a carrera today ... my dad said one of his pals got one, but he doesnt know if its an S or not... i'll post later what i think...should be about 11am

    u misunderstood me i said i won't buy it if i can't be driven on the road let us know what you think about the carrera! funny though, i'm taking delivery of my cayenne at 11am today LOL!

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    LOL its a sigh of good things to come!!!
    Maybe i will decide to take the Cs instead of waiting for the turbo...BTW maybe its just me, but the name Carrera seams more appealing that Turbo... i think it has just as much history +heritage...
    are you getting the cayenne turbo?? i've driven in 1 and although im not really a suv fan i have to say i was impressed.. i drove in a Hummer H2 aswell. man, in that thing if you want to have a conversation with someone in the back seats, its like you need to phone him. that car is HUGE..
    another thing. my brother got a new golf GTI. he isnt really into cars, although he used to race. its OK, but not for me. the car is fastish, but its not exciting to drive IMO. my G4 GTI has an aftermarket turbo so theres hardly anything in it when we drive. he'll just pull away when we reach some corners. He's happy with it though. he was stuck between that and a 645ci, and he took the golf. i wanted to smack him. but like i said he isnt into cars like me so his happy.

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    well on my way to the dealer today to take delivery of my CT and because stig mentioned that the CGT was there i went to the 2nd resales showroom first, and sure enough there it was.

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    i know the one salesman very well, he told me that toby has the CGT licensed in germany and has a temporary license on it, after a couple months he will have to ship it back.

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    last pic

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    btw saw a new bmw m5 outside the dealer

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    hey mike!!
    when will be you on the mtv cribs list!!!

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    lol, i won't qualify

    Yeah Right...

    BTW lets us know what you think of your new cayenne...

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    hahah sure will on the mtv list

    anyway does any dealer import pagani zoda?

    such a beautiful car.

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    Here in SA??

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    yep bc997j!

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    Not that i know of...
    but i doubt it. IMO south Africans are very name/brand orientated. if they make that car available here i doubt it will sell well. then again i might be wrong.
    The pagani is also very highly priced so i doubt many SA's will chose one over a car like a Murci.even if it is a great car.
    Me, i'll never chose a pagani over a Lambo, or Porsche for that matter. It may sound stupid but i'll rather have a Cs over it..
    I'll take a Zonda over a Ferrari anyday though. lol

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    Hey guys, I am coming to visit SA at the end of Sept to first week of Oct. I have visited the Porsche center in J'burg with my friend who is originally from SA. We have a large contingent of SAfricans that relocated here in South Florida. I have 15-20 friends from SA. I know it is a beautiful country as I visited there 3 years ago. I wish we could bring our P cars over. By the way my friend from SA owns a GT he visits the site all the time.

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    good time for visit yea? spring season!

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    Looking forward to it! I was last there in early Feb and it was 112 F, I think 43-44 C. Hope it is not that hot this time. I think that SA looks in many ways like US only in smaller amount of land. We have different animals in the country here. In South Florida you have to watch out for the wild Sugar Baby, they are on the hunt for Sugar Daddys! Their bite will cost you lots of money and that hurts. Many friends have been victims. Be on your guard when you visit here.

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    rofl, where will you be visiting in SA dan?

    @bazza: nope the pagani isn't available here, you could probably import one, but should something go wrong you're stuffed. the pagani is a wonderful car, i'd pick that car over any super car anyday.

    @BC997: the zonda over seas costs $650,000 and the CGT $450,000 so if it were to tell here it would probably cost R9,000,000 or so

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    http://www.paganiautomobili.it/

    such a beauty from inside to outside!!!

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    Flying into J'Burg, I may do a day trip to Durban to visit a childrens hospital charity, then onto Ngali, over to Victoria Falls, last stop Cape Town. I visited Londolosi on my last trip and that was the best time.

    Re: Noo Why do I always miss the only things that happen in

    dan - wow, you're really gonna enjoy it! have fun!

    bazza - yes the zonda is truly a masterpiece, it's an artwork with 4 wheels and 650hp
