    Sorry, I have been asked to keep it under wraps (lots of VIPs in the convoy). Maybe I get another photo or two for you guys but I don't have high hopes.

    Even with  NO  faces, NO plates....J ust cars Smiley

    They are sensitive to cameras... Smiley I can rely to it, considering who is in the convoy. Smiley

    Personaly I don't actualy care about the owners, and I do respect their private life. But pictures of the cars with the plates photoshoped Smiley ....how somebody can know for sure, who is the actual owner of the specific car?

    Good try from Porsche to fix GT owners Smiley. At least, it's also a nice promotion tour for the 918 driver.
    Which you all much fun...

    How does a CGT owner become part of this elite club?

    I can't believe Porsche put this 918 out... it looks stunning but it hides the true tech under it all.. it's a masterpiece.

    First, you need to be a Rennteam member. Smiley

    Just kidding... (it helps though Smiley).


    If you have a CGT, PM me your VIN, maybe I can help.

    It is possible to know the name of the hotel ?...the view is stunning !


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Detailed report about the 918 Nürburgring lap in the most recent Sport Auto. In short:

    - first attempts on tuesday evening (September 3rd) by Röhrl (7:04) and Timo Kluck (7:06). Slightly too warm. Simulations calculated a possible time of below 7:00 min.

    - cooler air and some optimization lead to Marc Lieb and Kluck posting times around 7:00 flat on wednesday morning (Sep. 4th). 

    - Lieb posting a 6:59 and subsequent 6:57.

    - car provides stunning acceleration and cornering forces, yet handling and driveability remain surprisingly docile

    - according to Kluck, a time of low 6:5x remains possible. According to Walliser, head of 918 development, the weight of the hybrid drivetrain adds 13 seconds on the Nordschleife whereas its additional performance improves it by 15 to 16 seconds. I personally would be curious whether this is only due to the performance boost or the handling benefit as well.

    wink

    So back to back, which is more fun to drive CGT or 918 ???

    Stefan, please stop posting details. This event is not "secret", nobody said that but it is private (for the owners) and the photos were allowed only if privacy is guaranteed. Please respect what I wrote before. Thank you.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Christian, is your secrecy a carry over from your diplomatic days?

    Personally I don't care who the owners are or what hotel they are in. When you get 20 CGT's and 918's together on a public road what do you expect no attention? That is why they went together. TO GET ATTENTION! 

    When you buy a 918 or a CGT part of the attraction of the car is attention.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    When you make a deal, do you respect it or not?! wink

    Agree, a promise must be kept. However, don't you find it curious that they allow a guy who runs a car forum to take pictures? What did they think you would do with them? Put them in your scrape book?SmileySmiley

    We are not just some guys who run a car forum or do you know anyone with a Carrera GT who runs another car forum? Smiley Or a 991 Turbo S? Or a 997 GT3? Or a 997 GT2RS? Or...for that matter?

    That's actually my car as seen on the configurator on my dealer's computer. I took a picture of it on my phone and the flash flashed. The mistake turns out pretty good, as if there was a sun in the background.

    I forgot about the pic until tonight when I clean out my phone for iOS7

    I think I saw Rossi's car smiley  but not RC' s 

    And bye bye for the anonymity . That video shows so many license plates .

    It is anyway a joke to think that such a venue can stay ' private '.

    If you want it to be private, you don't go into public areas with such displacements .
