    Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    Well, I guess this is a good start.
    Sending this picture via GPRS around 193 km away from Leipzig, at an Autobahn Rest Area.
    It is a pitty I couldn't drive in my Cayenne Turbo.

    More pictures to come around the afternoon or evening.

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    The weather looks great for a fun day

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    Wow! We're not allowed to drive that fast in our rest areas!!!

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    Here is another picture, "our" Carrera GT during driving. Don't worry, I have better pics of the car but it was passing by at a tremendous speed and my camera couldn't do better.

    With this occasion I want to THANK Porsche and their Leipzig Team for their help and hospitality, we had up to 4 people taking care of us, PERFECT service!

    And a word to all those CGT doubters, Cayenne haters and Porsche critics: we had an unbelievable time today, we saw so many unbelievable things, we experienced so many unbelievable things, it is hard to describe. And...we're not allowed to tell you guys everything but trust me: Porsche IS an incredible company with an incredible potential for the future. I really mean what I say but wait until you read the report over the next few days. We have lots of pictures, we have videos and infos...worth waiting for.

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    RC, I'll need to take a sleeping pill! I look forward to the reports, especially the things you WILL be able to tell us.

    A last "goodie" for you guys and now I go to sleep. I drove 900 km on the Autobahn and around 50 km on the track today, I'm dead tired and I want to get some sleep because I have a tough working day tomorrow.
    Expect pictures and a report soon but the videos may take a few days because we need the new server for them.
    One video has been taken from inside the CGT during driving on the track, it is absolutely spectacular.

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    Same for me RC!!!
    I've been rather bored with Porsche lately, looking at other companies, you've put a smile back on face, can't wait to read the report!!!
    Is Christian with you too? If yes, send my regards.

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    Wow RC, what else can I say. Im glad you had this once in a lifetime experience, wish I was there to enjoy it as well. Cannot wait to see more pics!

    Hey! Porsche has plenty of excitement coming your way! The four door sedan will most definetly be something that we will be talking about for a very very long time, and of course the 997! Although yes, those are only two cars, they are two very significant cars.

    What other Marques have you been lookling at lately Fanch?

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it!!

    You're a luck man--looking forward to more pix & videos!!

    Francois, today I drove the GT2 on the track (because the other two guys from our group were clever enough to choose the GT3 instead...;)) and trust me, if the GT2 and GT3 are boring to you, there must be something wrong with you. You should have gone for that GT3, Francois...

    It is still time: buy the GT3, schedule a few track events and you'll be a happy camper again. BTW: Porsche driving school is a great thing to go for because the instructors are very professional. Our "instructor" today was Jochen Albig, a great race car professional and a very pleasant nice guy.
    I'll write the details in the report.

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    Wow RC(for the 2nd time, and not to sound like a kiss a**) YOU ARE THE MAN!

    Re: Carrera GT - Leipzig Event

    OMG I can't wait for the video! RC a suggestion why not have newsletter go out to the users?

    RC,
    Never doubted that for a moment, that's why I'm so passionate about them. But it's great to have the belief confirmed.
