    Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    I went for a drive around Estes Park, Colorado, and took some nice pictures of the 997 S in the Rocky Mountain National Park. There wasn't much snow on the roads, but in a few spots there was some ice and grit, which the car seemed to handle well enough. The biggest "problem" was that there was so much sun, which is the curse we live with here in Colorado.

    There are several more pictures on my site. If one catches your fancy and you'd like a larger version, let me know and I'll email it to you.

    Absolutely beautiful shots. Thanks for posting - wish more people would post shots of their babies like you have. Would love a high res of the 2nd shot from the right, bottom-most row - left side shot of the car parked. Please send to vhora at Nyc dot rr dot com. Many thanks!

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    How's that thing running now? The shots that are into the sun a bit tend to get a little washed out. Nice pics!

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    Wow stunning pictures! Thanks for sharing.
    I would love to have picture 20, you probably know which one that is. You can mail it to luv2xlr at hotmail.
    Thanks alot!

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures


    Great pics. When I get my 997S in February, I'll be happy to post pics of the 997S in snow around the mountains and beautiful vistas of Illinois...oh wait...there are no mountains or beautiful vistas in Illinois!

    BTW, how;s the car behaving?

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    The car is behaving so far, but the real test was that I washed and dried it after the drive yesterday to remove all of the road grime. If it system faults again, then I'll know that they haven't really fixed anything.

    A friend and Porsche master mechanic at another dealer has offered to look into this, and thinks that it might be the "grommet" problem discussed in another thread. The fact that multiple cars have experience this makes me think that Porsche should have released a service bulletin, if not an outright recall. The problem has been reported by the dealers, but it's not clear to me that Porsche is listening. A small amount of effort on Porsche's part might have prevented these ridiculous problems!

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    Skip; beautiful pictures! Could you please mail me the forth picture? I sent you a pm with my emailaddres

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    Thanks for the compliments. While editing them I started to think that it might be time for a new camera. This one is about 5 years old and "only" 2.0 megapixels, with limited zoom, etc. When I can't get the desired results using a photo manipulation tool, it must be the camera!

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    Thanks a lot skip

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    beautiful pics! i love the enviroment. btw skip , a friend of mine had a similar problem in his carrera s ,the obd gave "misfiring cylinder 2 and 3".they are still working on the car...

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    Hmmm, if this thing is misfiring cylinders, I can only imagine how powerful it will be normally! The thing is amazingly quick, so I doubt that the engine is having any problems.

    Re: Mountain Drive - Lots of Pictures

    Great pics! It looks really good with the mountains behind.
    Can you send me pics: 1,3,5 at

    Nice pics, but we get so many photos of 997s here on rennteam.

    Didn't you take any of groundhog townships, or bighorn sheep charging towards the camera, stuff like that?
