    Some interesting 911s in my hometown

    This weekend I visited my parents in my old hometown.
    When I left, I spotter a strange 911 rear bumper protruding from behind another parked car.
    Turns out, some Porsche owners probably had a little tour going on and stayed over for lunch in the little town.
    Saw a 997 turbo can, a 996 turbo, a 993 C4, a 997 mk1, a new boxster and a 996 GT3 (which sadly didn't park), but also these interesting examples:
    a 996 convertable with a weird kit on it: front was made to look like a 997, but fitment was a bit poor. The back looked better fitting, but I am not sure if it would be my taste.

    The other was also nice; back in the 70s and 80s, the dutch highway police used g-series and 964 targas to patrol the Dutch highways. Off lately, I have seen some promotional articles about a restored police 911. This probably wasn't the one, but I was still excited to see this baby!  Smiley

    @ John: Thanks mate! It feels good to be "in the saddle" again!
    @Spudgun: That seems a bit harsh, why? yes It's not my cup of thea either, but I am pretty sure the owner will be happy with it.

    Well, 

    visually it looks terrible. And what other reason does one have to install such a bodykit? So yes, I am with spud gun on that one... maybe not that harsh but I wouldn´t want to be seen in it. indecision


    Re: Some interesting 911s in my hometown

    I agree with Ferdie. IMO that bodykit really spoils an otherwise lovely car. Still, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and its the owner's choice ...

    LOL, I also don't like the looks, but I don't want to kill everything that I don't like... ;-)
    I can only imagine you would apply a bodykit like that when your car got rear-ended or so, but still, I'd go for stock.

    Ha, you loved that Rijkspolitie 911 didn't you smiley

    That cab is done very very poorly, I fear they killed the car... Cannot imagine why any adult would do that to a 911 yes
