    Missing my turbo !

    Hi guys/gals,

    Am I going nuts? I am really missing my CTT08 as I am on holiday in the UK (bristol). I have a Renault Laguna as rental car, reasonble car but nothing fancy. Only two more weeks to go but........ I was on youtube going through the porsche vids, I am going bananas?

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Re: Missing my turbo !

    Make some burn out with the Laguna,or try to drift it with the hand brake!!make something fun,and think that your Cayenne is sleeping under the car cover!!

    End of next week also my Turbo will be sleeping in the box and i will go to the sea,to play with sand ..and

    X-5?lol You really want to miss your turbo, get some

    BTW My GTS got pummelled by a hail storm and now has to go
    into the body shop. I'll understand how you feel next week.

    Hi, these cars have so little power that non is posssible, I even don't have a proper handbrake (just a nob I have to press)

    I know she is very cosy at home

    Good luck at sea ! (Navi?)

    Hi CPA4S,

    Just spotted that you sold your CTT08 and got the GTS (my apologies if this has been discussed before, I am getting old you know --> not even 40 )

    Now you have had both, would you go back to the turbo or is the GTS the one you want to keep? Do you want to tell us why you changed??

    Best regards,

    Mark

    Mark,

    Enjoy your vacation now. When you're back driving the CTT again, you're in for a BIG treat...

    the GTS manual is more fun for my environment. the engine is more usable in that you get to wring it out rather then keep it on a leash like the Turbo.

    the seats blow away the turbo.

    i do miss the PDCC.
    the sound is amazing. i put some pic's up on a thread here a few weeks ago.

    Re: Missing my turbo !

    Mark, I know what you mean! I almost bought a Porsche for Australia - spend a couple of months a year there - in the end I just go into my friendly OPC talk cars and have even been offered unchaperoned test drives!

    Re: Missing my turbo !

    Hi Servo,

    We are flying back tomorrow (yeppyyyyyy) only 9hrs flight, cannot wait. I was at the OPC dealer in Bristol yesterday and was shocked by the UK prices for the CTT as well as GTS. They offered me a drive in the GTS however as I had to pick up Joanne from her shopping spree I had to decline.

    Cannot wait to take my baby out for a wee spin again. Bought a G-tech performance meter, let's see how the CTT performs (if the G-tech works obviously)

    Cheers,

    Mark
